Popular YouTuber Jake Paul responded to criticism following the release of Shane Dawson’s first documentary episode on the social media star – and also revealed his biggest fear about the series.

Paul stated that he was most nervous about the series’ later episodes, which would detail his relationship with YouTuber Alissa Violet.

The YouTuber was accused of abuse after footage of him spitting on his Violet was released in a now-deleted video.

“That’s definitely the part I’m most nervous about,” he admitted.

Paul stated that opening up to Dawson was ‘difficult,’ and admitted that he initially didn’t want to go forward with the series for fear that he would harm Dawson’s image.

However, he had faith that Dawson would be able to provide a genuine, unbiased account of his life, and decided to go through with the docuseries for that very reason.

Additionally, Paul stated that there would likely be instances in the series that he wouldn’t like, but acknowledged that watching those moments in the film would help him to grow as a person.

“The only way you can get better is if you acknowledge those things… and learn from that, and move on,” he stated.

Jake also mentioned that he had no influence on editing the series, and stated that he and Dawson had become close over the course of the filming process. He said that he was completely honest with anything asked of him, and didn’t set out to ‘expose’ anyone in the film.

He likewise admitted that Shane had told him  what the series was ‘really about’ in the beginning of their talks, and had just been hyping it up as a secret, covert operation to expose his character.

With the first episode of the series already garnering over nine million views, this documentary could rival Dawson’s previous pieces over Jeffree Star and Tana Mongeau.


Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy trends on Twitter.
#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
