YouTube sensation, David Dobrik, has vented his frustrations on Twitter after fans continue to impose on his privacy by visiting his home.

YouTube stars’ fame is often paralleled with that of some of the biggest celebrities from around the world. With the influence of social media, YouTubers often find themselves springing into the spotlight in no time at all. 

Since YouTube is a widely accessible platform, fans from around the world can tap into their favorite creator’s life within a matter of seconds. However, there is a distinct difference between being connected with your favorite personality and quite literally imposing on their life.

Casey Neistat (YouTube)Casey Neistat had an unwelcomed visitor at the 368 Offices in New York back in May, 2018.

There are various examples of high-profile creators experiencing an invasion of privacy. From a man trespassing Casey Neistat’s YouTube co-worker space, to Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg recalling incidents where fans have overstepped the mark while trying to eat dinner. 

Although, perhaps more alarmingly, fans have began invading creators’ personal space. David Dobrik’s rise to stardom places him among some of the most high-profile creators on YouTube. With just shy of 15 million subscribers, his following has snowballed in recent years.

However, the Slovak-born internet personality has now begged for fans to stop coming to his house and respect his personal space.

While David Dobrik’s house is often used as the set for some of his more extravagant scenes from his videos, it is also a home for him and his friends to enjoy some downtime away from the pressures of being a big YouTuber. 

Although there is no reported fan transgression at the time of writing, simply visiting someone’s property uninvited goes beyond what is considered moral and could be considered as trespassing, which could come with a long-list of ramifications.

This isn’t the first episode of fans turning up out of nowhere. Popular cosplayer, Jessica Nigri, released an uncharacteristically somber series of Tweets pleading for fans to respect boundaries, after a stalker visited her home back in March.

At the very extreme end of the scale, popular Twitch streamer Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm had to deal with shots being fired towards his house during a live broadcast.

Thankfully, no one was harmed during the incident. However, given that his family, including his young daughter, reside at the property, there has to be a line which fans and trolls alike must respect when considering a visit to their home — regardless of their intentions.

YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul has officially revealed that he’s taking on another fight, as announced in a “huge” broadcast on January 20 — and he wants his fellow content creators on the undercard.

Yesterday, Jake Paul revealed in a tweet that he had a big announcement coming up for his fans, which would be broadcasted officially via Triller.

The day is finally here, and Paul has disclosed that he’s already set for an upcoming bout, and even gave his fans an official date for the fight.

Who is Jake Paul fighting next?

Unfortunately, the YouTuber didn’t drop any names, leaving many in the dark as to who he could be facing off against.

However, Paul has made a wealth of enemies in professional fighting circles since his 2nd round KO over Nate Robinson in November of last year, including the likes of MMA artists Dillon Danis, Ben Askren, and even Conor McGregor.

In fact, Askren accepted Paul’s challenge when the YouTuber called him out via social media, although things have been especially quiet on that forefront for some time afterwards.

Thus far, there’s no telling who Paul will fight next, although many fans are anxious for him to take on a professional fighter in wake of his multiple victories over celebs and fellow influencers.

When is Jake Paul’s next fight?

Jake Paul will be throwing down in the boxing ring again on April 10, 2021 — a little under three months away.

This fight will come just two months after Logan Paul’s upcoming exhibition against Floyd Mayweather, already proving 2021 to be a fairly busy month for the brothers.

As for the event itself, Jake was keen to have other influencers on the undercard. Many fans have expressed hopes for Slim and Deji to make an appearance — two YouTubers who have already fought in live streamed boxing matches, previously.

That’s not all; Paul also teased that rapper Snoop Dogg will be making an appearance on the mic, making this a truly star-studded affair.

Where to watch Jake Paul’s next fight?

The fight appears to be available to watch via Triller, exclusively, so make sure to set up your account if you want to tune into the action.

Paul is hoping to create the “biggest pay-per-view ever” — but with no opponent yet announced, there’s no telling if his dream will come true in a few month’s time.
