YouTuber Jake Paul is a hugely popular content creator, boasting well over 19 million subscribers — but his fame doesn’t prevent breaches of personal privacy, with his home address allegedly being leaked on TikTok.

Jake Paul has been relatively silent in the days following his viral boxing win over fellow YouTuber AnEsonGib on January 30, with the star’s last upload going out on February 22.

This upload preceded the slew of online backlash he received over his divisive Tweet about anxiety, which he claimed was “created by you” — leading many to criticize him over seemingly trivializing what can be a severely debilitating mental condition.

Jake Paul’s divisive tweet about anxiety preceded a month-long hiatus from the star on social media.

After nearly a month off the grid, Jake Paul teased the return of his vlogs on March 20; but his new video contained more than his usual off-the-wall antics.

One portion of his five-minute vlog — similar to both David Dobrik and older brother Logan Paul — includes a humorous threat towards some unnamed TikTokers, who purportedly leaked the address of his Team 10 mansion on the application.

According to Paul, the video gained over 70 million views before being taken down — and he wasn’t happy with the attention the clip received.

Donning a hazmat suit and mask in the spirit of current global affairs, the YouTuber even pulled out an automatic weapon, giving a stern message to the TikTokers responsible for the leak.

“Our house address got leaked on TikTok,” he explained while standing in front of his property. “That s**t got 70 million views, so… Any of you little TikTok f***ers wanna come out here, you’re gonna be lipsyncing in hell!”

Jake Paul isn’t the only internet superstar dealing with serious invasions of privacy, lately; TikToker Charli D’Amelio recently opened up about her own experiences with online fame, claiming that fans will even try to enter bathroom stalls with her for the chance of getting a photo.

With names like PewDiePie, David Dobrik, and even Mr Beast revealing their own run-ins with stalkers and overenthusiastic fans, there’s no time like the present to appreciate the value of personal space.

Participating monsters include Gen 8 characters Alcremie, Wooloo, Morpeko, and Isle of Armor Legendary, Kubfu. And of course, the series’ beloved mascot, Pikachu, also makes an appearance.

As an example of the kind of dances you can do to match the Pokemon’s style, a video was released on the official International YouTube channel. The clip adorably shows Pikachu mirroring the fans’ moves.

Participants that get the most likes can win a plushy of one of the five Pokemon that are a part of the TikTok challenge. Unfortunately at the time of writing, the contest is in Japan only.

The TikTok challenge isn’t the only time a Pokemon has moved to a beat. In August, Pikachu teamed up with the viral Pineapple Pen guy to make a music video based on the Electric-type’s voice lines.

It will be interesting to see the creative ways Trainers come up with dances to match the ‘mon of their choice. The adorable challenge celebrates the Sword & Shield DLC, The Crown Tundra, which hits stores on October 22.
