Jake Paul Under Fire for Being at Mall During Looting

Jake Paul is under fire online for being at a mall in Arizona while looting was taking place.

The 23-year-old YouTuber – who as of just a few years ago was making $11.5 million per year – can be seen in a video circulating on social media at the Fashion Square in Scottsdale, Arizona on Saturday (May 30). He is not seen actually looting in the videos.

He posted on his own Instagram Story from the scene where police are present, “Bunch of f—king idiots, bro. Literally I walked right here, right up to there these f—cking idiots teargassed me. I ain’t doing s—t, bro. Look at them pointing guns at me.”

He added, “America is in ruins.” He also posted an image of his eye saying he got hit with tear gas during a protest.

Black Lives Matter protests are taking place across the country after the murder of George Floyd, a black man in Minnesota at the hands of police officer Derek Chauvin.

Jake has not yet issued a statement on his name becoming a trending topic over the looting. See the photos he posted to his Instagram Story in the gallery.
