Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul is fighting back against alleged hate from the fanbase of YouTube duo ‘The Dolan Twins,’ as stated in a series of Tweets posted in early January of 2019.
Paul responded to a Tweet from one of the Twins’ fans on January 7, who claimed that if Ethan Dolan were found to be hiding his possible relationship with YouTuber Emma Chamberlain, she’d hop over to Jake Paul’s fandom out of frustration.
Paul appeared to translate the Tweet as thinly-veiled criticism, hitting back at the fan with a scathing post that claimed he was still friends with the brothers - despite their dramatic split from Paul’s Team 10 org back in September of 2017.
I don’t get why this fan base still hates on me?? For what?— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) January 8, 2019

“I don’t get why this fanbase still hates on me?” Paul wrote. “For what? Y’all got your own insecurities? The twins and I go way back... probably before 95% of y’all even knew who I was or who they were, and we’re still REAL life friends till this day.”
While the fan clapped back at Paul’s reply and claimed that her hate had nothing to do with the Twins’ viewer base, Paul went on to call out another Tweet the very next day.
Coming from a person who gets hated on so much on the internet... you have no right to judge anyone based on how they act online..— Jake Paul (@jakepaul) January 8, 2019
I fucking hate seeing tweets like this
you must have so many insecurities that you need to address!!
“Coming from a person who gets hated on so much on the internet... you have no right to judge anyone based on how they act online,” Paul wrote in response to a fan for bashing Chamberlain. “You must have so many insecurities that you need to address!”
Paul himself is currently at the center of two separate scandals, after partnering with an alleged gambling and scam website and participating in a the dangerous ‘Bird Box’ challenge with a controversial video (which has since been deleted).
