YouTube star Jake Paul is facing backlash from both his neighbors and online critics after throwing a massive house party at the Team 10 mansion — despite the danger of current global affairs.

Jake Paul is a massive name in the online entertainment world, and not always for the most upstanding reasons; best known for his over-the-top vlogs and wild antics therein, Paul has come under fire for those very same antics multiple times in the past.

From trashing a $10 million mansion in Colorado for his 21st birthday bash to being caught out in a crowd of Arizona looters during the Black Lives Matter protests, Paul has a storied history of disturbing the peace — and it doesn’t seem that this reputation is leaving him, any time soon.

Critics across the net sounded off in outrage after news outlets reported that Paul had thrown a massive party at the Team 10 mansion in Calabasas, California on Saturday, July 11, in spite of social distancing recommendations in light of current world events.

According to reports, Paul’s neighbors were “outraged” by the party, calling it “irresponsible and selfish,” and claiming, “It’s businesses and workers who pay the price for this with lockdowns.”

Neighbors weren’t the only one upset by Paul’s party, either; other YouTubers also took to the net to vent their concerns, including massive internet personality Tyler Oakley, who had but one thing to say: “F*** you, Jake Paul.”

Needless to say, it doesn’t seem like Paul is taking the outrage very seriously, as he retweeted Oakley’s comment in apparent disregard of the state of global affairs.

Still other neighbors went online with footage of the insane party, which showed partygoers hanging onto the end of a bulldozer “like a [mechanical] bull.”

Several high-profile TikTokers and YouTubers were also in attendance, including the likes of several Sway House members and even Tana Mongeau, who posted their own videos of the party to their respective accounts.

Calabasas Mayor Alicia Weintraub claims she is working with the Lost Hill’s law enforcement to enact a future “zero-tolerance” policy on large indoor gatherings in response to Paul’s party.

Paul has yet to officially address the backlash, which comes after the YouTuber was charged with criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly in early June.

California has entered its second lockdown as of Monday, July 13, with Governor Gavin Newsom ordering another closure of indoor businesses.


Twitch streamer confronts DoorDash driver after console war trash talk

Console wars are nothing new to video game enthusiasts. From schoolyard debates to forum threads 500 pages deep, console loyalists have fought tooth and nail since the dawn of time. Now, the battleground has shifted with even DoorDash drivers getting in on the action against customers.

During a Twitch broadcast, streamer Jameskii was playing Minecraft while waiting for DoorDash to deliver his order. Suddenly, he received a text message on his phone.

“Hold on, is my drink here?” he wondered as he grabbed his mobile device. “Oh my God! Oh my God!”

As the streamer stared down at his phone, he could hardly contain his disbelief at the message he received from the driver.

“My food delivery guy just messaged me ‘Xbox is trash as f**k,” he laughed. “I’m not kidding. My f**king DoorDash just messaged me. It says, ‘Hello, DoorDash has arrived with your order’ and the next message is ‘Xbox is trash as f**k.’”

As it turns out, the driver actually tried to call the streamer, but when Jameskii didn’t pick up, he felt the need to trash talk Xbox.

Despite all this confusion and the out of context attack on Microsoft’s console, Jameskii wondered if he should call the driver back.

“Say yeah, PlayStation is better, woo!” his friend suggested as the streamer began to redial the number.

Eventually, someone on the other end picked up. “Alright, what did you say about Xbox?” Jameskii asked point-blank.

After a few moments of silence, the driver doubled down on his earlier comment and shouted, “F**k Xbox!”

The remark had the streamer in stitches and made him burst out laughing at the absurdity of the whole situation.

While console wars have a long history dating beyond even the 90s when Nintendo and Sega duked it out, it’s unlikely that the phenomenon ever reached a point where delivery drivers partake. It just goes to show that we’re living in a strange timeline.
