In this day and age, being a YouTuber is actually a legitimate job and, unlike any other normal job, there are certain perks of being blessed with such a millennial job title.
Take Jake Paul for example. The YouTuber-turned-boxer has always been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons, yet manages to maintain a somewhat successful career because of the internet.
But his latest move might be his most controversial yet…
He’s a twenty-three-year-old YouTuber who vlogs and creates videos to entertain a large online audience.
And that fact is just beyond me considering he’s one of the worst reality villains, according to The New York Times.
It’s gotten so frequent that he seems to have substituted every single one of his personality traits for being an absolute jerk.
Back then he only had 8.5 million followers, and yeah, to us normal folk that might seem like a lot but compared to the nineteen million he has now.
A local news channel in West Hollywood reported on his crazy antics, saying that, along with his friends, he had managed to infuriate their neighbors so much that they were discussing the possibility of filing a lawsuit against him.
“The neighbors hate me,” he said proudly after mocking a reporter’s shoes. He claimed he had turned the street into a circus, responding:
“I mean, but people like going to circuses, right?”
“It used to be a really nice quiet street and now we’re just this war zone,” he claimed.
He decided to tell us there were innocent people “getting shot” out there and we shouldn’t be focusing on him. Thanks for the advice, Jake.
And his other feuds with other giant YouTubers such as PewDiePie saw him gain more haters than fans and before you knew it, he became the king of unnecessary beef online in order to keep himself relevant now that he was on the brink of being unemployed.
But no one really paid enough attention because his older brother is just as big of a jerk as he is.
Logan Paul was involved in probably one of the biggest YouTube controversies when he decided to take a trip to a Japanese Forest known for its haunting roots.
Aokigahara forest is known for it’s high suicide rates, so you would think one would stay away from such a location, but instead, it peaked Logan Paul’s interests and after a quick flight, he and his cronies embarked on a journey to find something “haunting.”
And rather than cutting the cameras and calling the emergency services, as any normal person would, they kept their devices rolling and filmed the lifeless body while cracking a few jokes here and there.
That’s right, this twenty-four-year-old decided to share such a sensitive moment with his millions of followers but YouTube quickly removed the clip as it violated many guidelines.
But guess who’s back at it again. Obviously, it would be Jake.
Pivoting away from his usual content creation and… Music?
And his choice of opponent has the internet raising its eyebrows…
“My team is talking to his manager but that’s all I’ll say,” he’s said.
“My dogs have more followers than the guy he’s fighting in January.”
“I’m gonna dedicate my life to winning that fight because I’m not going in there just to say I did it — I’m going in there to f**k Conor McGregor up.”
