Controversial YouTuber Jake Paul could be facing a hefty fine for his company, thanks to a rowdy 21st birthday party the social media star threw in a $10 million Starwood mansion in January of 2018.

Jake Paul celebrated his 21st at a mansion in Aspen, Colorado, rented by Team 10 for around $61,000 over an 11-day period. 

During this time frame, Paul engaged in a plethora of rambunctious shenanigans, including throwing dishes at a bedroom window in the house and racing around the yard in a series of off-road ATVs (reportedly worth up to $40,000).

Mansion owner Isabelle Freidheim filed a lawsuit against Team 10 talent manager Krista Burditt in June of 2018, with claims that Burditt had violated terms of the rental lease – which included using the estate for “commercial purposes,” as evidenced by Paul’s vlog of the experience.

Freidheim has since expanded the suit to include Team 10, which was confirmed by a judge on Wednesday, December 19. Team 10’s lawyers are now fighting this expansion, arguing that the home was rented for Paul’s personal use, specifically.

According to the lawsuit, the squad was “prohibited from using the home for any disorderly conduct or in a manner that created excessive or unreasonable noise or nuisance.” 

With thirteen minutes of video evidence standing against the group, it comes as no surprise that Pitkin County District Court judge Denise Lynch ruled in favor of the Freidheim’s claim, although a potential trial date has yet to be set for the debacle.

Twitch removes “Blind Playthrough” stream tag after backlash

Twitch has introduced a new change to the stream tags on channels, which has completely removed the “Blind Playthrough” tag from the site following criticism around the language used.

It can often be difficult to get discovered as a new Twitch streamer, with thousands of other content creators broadcasting on the site at any one time.

Twitch has previously introduced tags to address this issue in 2018, which can be added to a streamer’s channel and can be used by viewers for filtering their searches to find what they’re looking for.

The Blind Playthrough tag no longer shows on Twitch.

While the usual tags often include information such as language and type of content, one tag that was used for those playing a game for the first time was the “Blind Playthrough” tag.

The tag would indicate that the streamer had not seen any spoilers or that they do not know much about the title’s gameplay and features before playing it.

However, in a recent tweet, Twitch’s community director Erin ‘Aureylian’ Wayne highlighted that they have removed the tag from the site, following criticism around the choice of words used, with some suggesting that the language was ableist.

“Happy to see Twitch has listened to everyone who shared feedback and removed the ‘Blind Playthrough’ tag to encourage more inclusive language for our community,” she added.

While the “Blind Playthrough” tag has been removed from the database, the Twitch director urged streamers to make use of the “First Playthrough” and “No Spoilers” tags in its place.

The term “Blind Playthrough” was central to a discussion on ableist language sparked by AbleGamers COO Steven Spohn earlier in the year and now Twitch has acted in response.

While Twitch’s latest change has been met with some positive responses so far, some users have argued the need for the change, highlighting that “Blind” has two official definitions.

However, Twitch has remained firm on their stance, and streamers will simply need to use an alternative tag while streaming spoiler-free gameplay.
