Famous YouTuber Creates Hell for Neighbors, Doesn't Care
Famous YouTuber Jake Paul and his crew are in hot water for their wild antics and overall shitty behavior, recently highlighted in a ridiculous KTLA 5 interview. In the clip we see the 20-year-old social media star burning trash, popping wheelies, blocking traffic, and encouraging stalkers. He even took the time to diss the reporters that came to speak with him, saying "What are thoooose.." and running off in a fit of giggles with his crew. For real.
"Today, I interviewed Jake Paul. He made fun of my shoes. FML"
(The KTLA 5 Reporter, probably)
He's young, but definitely not young enough to excuse this magnitude of bullshit. Paul started out on Vine and then successfully migrated to YouTube, wracking up a total of 1.3 billion views in just 4 years. He also got himself a spot on Disney channel's Bizaardvark in 2016. His 22-year-old brother, Logan Paul, is on a similar path but relies more on comedic content rather than shock value and doesn't seem to be involved in this scandal.
The trouble takes place at the house that he rents and shares with his "Team 10" squad on a (formerly) quiet residential street in Los Angeles. He and his crew call themselves a media company and film a lot of their jockish antics at the house. They've actually listed their home address as a business on Google, so crowds of young (mostly female) fans creep around outside every day, hoping for a glimpse of the madlads.
"There's nothing we can do though. The 'Jake Paulers' are the strongest army out there. Dab."
(Yes, he said "dab" while dabbing.)
Who wouldn't want to meet the guy that drained his pool, threw a bunch of furniture in it, doused it in chemicals, and lit it up? That sounds like something a crack-addicted arsonist would do! Oh wait, my bad - he's got over 8 million followers and it was only for views so it's totally fine. It's not like fires are a big deal in California anyway.
Fortunately, his reign of terror may soon end. His neighbors are considering a class-action lawsuit for being an overall nuisance, but nothing's official yet. There's an arrest clip on YouTube but it's (unfortunately) completely fake. Pranksters gonna prank, I guess. Speaking of which, am I the only one that thinks the prank vids stopped being funny a long time ago? I'm looking at you, Joey Salads, PrankInvasion, Bradberry bros, DaddyOFive, etc. Why are there so many awful prank channels?
Here's the KTLA 5 report so you can judge for yourself:
His neighbors aren't the only ones that hate him, evidenced by the fact that his "It's Everyday Bro" video is the 10th most downvoted in YouTube history. Nice.
I would hate to contribute to his view count, so I won't. Instead, I'll leave you with the H3H3 reaction to Jake Paul's cancerous excuse for a music video.
Go back to Ohio, Jake.
Logan can stay though. I guess.
