Popular YouTuber and groom Jake Paul responded to community backlash for charging $50 to watch his wedding with fellow social media influencer Tana Mongeau.

The young YouTube star shocked his fans when he announced a speedy wedding proceeding with Mongeau, but made sure to let “loyal” fans be a part of the celebration by signing up for the livestream for all of the night’s festivities.

But the newly weds were experiencing a “social media uproar” from people who thought that the price was far too steep for a wedding stream. Still, that didn’t deter the younger Paul and Mongeau to go on with the pricey coverage for the event.

Jake Paul InstagramJake and Tana’s wedding had a few snags along the road, including people hating on the livestream.

Following his lavish ceremony, which had a fight break out in the middle of it, Jake sat down to be a part of an impromptu IMPAULSIVE with his older brother Logan Paul where he fired back to his online critics.

“100%. People are going to be pissed,” Jake said in regards to potential hate for putting a price on the wedding’s livestream. “I say, this wedding cost us north of $750,000. If you want to be a part of the experience, why not. Let’s subdue our cost. This is expensive as shit.”

While Paul openly said there was going to be free content to come about after the wedding, the reason for the high price point was “because [Jake] only wants the people who fuck with [him] and Tana the most to be watching the livestream.”

What he definitely didn’t want to see were “haters” bombarding his livestream with obscene comments, which he believes would happen if the couple decided on a smaller price point of say $10.

Paul and Tana’s wedding for fans only

“I feel like if you aren’t our fans then you shouldn’t be watching the livestream.” Jake Paul said. “I only want my most loyal people on there.”

Though it didn’t seem like those “loyal” fans bought a perfect product since many were demanding a refund due to how “unwatchable” the stream had become during the most important bits.

The married life for Jake and Tana is starting on shaky waters not because of their relationship with each other, but instead between fans who didn’t buy the livestream and felt ousted as well as with the people who did buy into it and were frustrated with the outcome.


Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
