Fans outraged after Emma Chamberlain followed by paparazzi

A video that’s been released of relatable teen YouTuber Emma Chamberlain being followed by paparazzi has caused a stir on social media. Some insist the reporter was far too invasive, while others believe Emma was needlessly rude.

19-year-old Emma Chamberlain rose to success through her quirky personality and relatable YouTube videos. She’s amassed a subscriber base of over 9 million, and has asserted herself as a staple creator on the site.

However, while she has a huge base of adoring fans, she hasn’t been exempt from controversy. Just this year she came under fire for launching an apparently overpriced coffee company that saw prices up to $60.

Emma is followed

Opinions have been mixed once again, with people unsure how to react when a video emerged of a paparazzo quizzing her about her personal life, following her to her car while asking the star questions.

In the clip, the man can be heard asking: “When will we see the Sister Squad back together?” to which she replied: “Have a good one,” and shut her car door.

The Sister Squad is comprised of Emma, James Charles, and the Dolan twins. They produced a lot of content together on the site, but following James Charles’ scandal of 2019 they cut ties.

The reporter proceeded to follow her to the gas station, where he informs her that fans are shipping her with TikTok star Noah Beck. He questioned her over her relationship status, with Chamberlain uncomfortably replying: “I’m out of here, though.”

As Def Noodles noted on Twitter, the original video displayed Emma’s number plate which raises concerns about doxxing and personal safety.

How did social media respond?

Viewers have had a mixed response to the exchange. Some sided with the paparazzi, suggesting that because she “spends all her time trying to get people to watch her,” she shouldn’t complain when the press shows an interest in her life.

Others have questioned the ethics of a grown man following a teenage girl to a gas station. “I get it’s their job, but as a girl at a gas station I’m on HIGH alert and not myself,” one person said.

They’ve suggested that the man was “crossing boundaries” and implores others to “let people have their own space.”

The moral issues regarding paparazzi have long been debated. But as an inevitable side effect of influencer culture, the jury is out on who’s in the wrong.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
