Fans believe that Jake Paul may have had his YouTube account hacked social media, after some claimed that he was attempting to scam subscribers for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Following the massive bitcoin scam on July 15, which saw the likes of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Mr Beast, and more all hacked, it seems as if yet another cryptocurrency scam is now circulating.

This time, it appears the hackers, asking unsuspecting fans for cryptocurrency, have used Jake Paul’s YouTube channel as their platform.

Fans were confused after Jake Paul returned to YouTube with a bitcoin “giveaway.”

Jake Paul is known for his popular vlog series and has built a massive following over 20 million subscribers but he has not always been happy with the video-sharing platform.

After recently announcing that he was done with YouTube and that he had stopped uploading for a month, his fans were surprised to see his account seemingly active again, promoting a “giveaway” on September 6.

The post on the YouTuber’s channel claimed that he would be sending back double the amount of any cryptocurrency that was sent to him first, making some subscribers quite suspicious of the giveaway.

The post confused fans, suggesting Jake Paul may have been hacked.

After seeing this unusual style of the giveaway, many of Jake’s subscribers have hit out at the star claiming that he was “scamming fans.”

Other fans were concerned for his YouTube account, questioning whether or not he was the victim of a hack, similar to the bitcoin scam earlier in the year.

The content creator has also seemingly responded to fans’ concerns on YouTube, commenting on the post and claiming that it is “not another Twitter scam.”

Social media mogul and reality tv star Kylie Jenner is known as much for her lipstick line as she is for her over-the-top Halloween costumes, and one of her 2020 looks absolutely “killed” the competition — in part due to the talents of James Charles.

As soon as Halloween rolls around — even during the current health crisis — fans look toward to the crazy costumes that celebrities will pull off, which is almost always a visual treat due to their top-tier budgets and friendships with special effects artists.

Kylie Jenner is one such celeb, who has turned heads across the net for her rendition of a Barbie doll and Ariel from the Little Mermaid — not to mention the time she dressed up as a woodland fairy.

However, her latest costume has taken a more “wild” turn, as inspired by her brand-new Cheetah-themed makeup collection.

Kylie Jenner has completely floored fans throughout the years with her creative Halloween costumes, one of which was a classic fairy.

Partnering up with YouTuber-slash-makeup artist James Charles, Kylie decided to go full-on big cat, with Charles lending his own talents to deliver some stunning special effects.

Using tissue and liquid latex, James created three fake slash marks on her left cheek, as though Kylie had been scratched by the very Cheetah from her makeup collection.

After applying the rest of her makeup — also using the Cheetah collection — Charles completed the look by using black and red eyeshadows, as well as fake blood, to create a surprisingly realistic facial injury.

It’s clear that no cat scratch is going to get Kylie down, though, as evidenced by how amazingly fierce the entire ensemble came together, which the two showed off in a no-nonsense Instagram photo.

As for Kylie’s actual Halloween costume on the official holiday, she isn’t giving out any hints, preferring to keep it a surprise on the actual day (even though James tried his best to get her to spill the beans).
