Joe Rogan weighs in on Jake Paul “trouble” following FBI raid

In a recent episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Joe and Tim Dillon reacted to Jake Paul getting raided by the FBI, and discussed their thoughts on the controversial social media star.

Jake Paul caused disbelief throughout social media on August 5 when it emerged that his home was being searched by the FBI, seizing firearms that amounted to what TMZ referred to as a “small militia’s” worth.

This came in the wake of his investigation under the Scottsdale police for his involvement in the June 5 Arizona shopping mall riot. According to ABC7, these two incidents were related to each other.

Jake Paul speaks to the camera.

Joe Rogan is currently under the process of moving from LA to Texas, having criticized the normalized riot culture in places such as California. It was expected that under the circumstances he would have something to say about Jake’s behavior.

At first, Joe raised the issue with Jake’s looting controversy. Referencing the raid, he said, “he’s in trouble right now.” Tim joked that “There’s always a brother where you go, you just sit down,” referring to Jake’s relationship with older brother Logan.

“Was it an arsenal thing or because he was stealing from the Mall?” Rogan asked about the reason for the FBI’s involvement. Dillon speculates that someone may have ratted Paul out for the weapons at his home.

“A guy like that, with that kind of money, I say get more weapons,” Tim joked.

The pair did agree that it was actually a good idea to have some kind of weaponry. “When LA falls, these are the only f**ks that are gonna be able to do anything.” Tim said, to which Joe replied “it’s not a bad idea.”

Tim talked about how he felt like a “man without a country” due to not fitting in with the LA cliques like the influencers, or the comedians. Joe says he “feel[s] like that too.”

This follows on from Joe’s growing disdain toward LA culture, saying in podcast #1523 that “I don’t think that this is a healthy way to live” and that “on a regular basis there’s crazy sh*t going on” in the LA area.

After the Scottsdale Police Department dismissed their charges against Jake Paul to allow for the FBI to ensure a more thorough investigation, it’s yet unclear what the exact repercussions of these events will be.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
