YouTuber Jake Paul had high hopes for Team 10, claiming the group could have been bigger than the Kardashians.

In an interview with True Geordie, Paul discussed where it all went wrong.

True Geordie asked Paul about how his year has gone, specifically how he felt about Team 10 members leaving.

Paul did not hold back, saying he was shocked about how some of the former members handled the exit.

It’s the weirdest feeling in the world. Literally, kids who I have been best friends with since 7th grade, wake up and are like, ‘oh there’s a moving truck here, peace out.’ And they are not even adult enough to have a conversation with me about it.

Team 10 is the Jake Paul headed YouTube collaboration channel that is meant to grow the social presence of smaller influencers. It has had a cast with a high turnover rate as members left in apparent frustration with the Paul family’s style of management.

In response to Jake being surprised about members leaving without notice, Geordie asked him if he felt he was being used.

Yeah, 100%. To this day, I haven’t made a single dollar off of Team 10. I’ve only invested my own money into it to make it successful.

With Paul sounding down on the whole experience, True Geordie asked if he regretted doing Team 10.

I don’t. If you think about it, if Team 10 were together right now, we’d be bigger than the Kardashians.

He also had stinging words for the members who left his team.

Since Team 10 still exists with new members, Paul did not mince words when commenting on the prospects of those who quit.

As we’ve seen members leave Team 10, we’ve seen them all turn into nothing and make mistakes and fumble. I think they are like, ‘oh s***, maybe what I had was amazing.’ I don’t know, that is just how I see it.

It’s a beautiful thing when the internet comes together to bring about iconic memes. Lately, Kim Kardashian is the inspiration behind a hilarious trend after she tweeted about her lavish birthday party. 

On October 27, Kim revealed to the world how she was celebrating her 40th birthday in style through a thread on Twitter, filled with images from the gathering.

She wrote, “I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.”

And she also acknowledged her own privilege, adding “I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”

But one particular tweet in the thread found a whole new life of its own after parodies exploded on the platform. The tweet read, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

Twitter found it hilarious, providing their own versions of images alongside the text from the viral tweet – from different impressions of “private islands” to ominous depictions of the “inner circle”.  Scroll down to see some of the best parodies so far.

After 2 weeks of multiple health screens…

Drag Race’s Lemon inspired the ultimate nostalgia by pasting the tweet alongside an image from Club Penguin of the crowded iceberg from the game.

Journalist Sophie Thompson went so far as to use a screengrab from Midsommar, implying that a seemingly innocent getaway could turn into a horror movie – it is spooky season after all.

Attorney and author Rabia O’Chaudry continued the theme of implied violence with a screengrab from Game of Thrones, taking the narrative to a whole other level.

Comedian Katy Brand had the genius idea of using an image from the Wicker Man.

Internet personality Blessed Madonna compared Kim Kardashian’s get-together to Fyre Festival with this incredible image of one of the meals given to attendees at the infamous event.

Other tweets referred to popular games

Author Desus Nice shared the Contraband map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

ESPN Esports pasted the tweet alongside an image of the Hyrule Temple from Super Smash Bros.

We had to include a shameless plug: we added Kings Canyon, the original map in Apex legends.

Twitter is nowhere near finished with these amazing parodies, and will surely keep going until all the options are exhausted. Watch this space.
