However, instead of a video featuring a discussion between the two exes, the “mini Erika Costell” and “mini Jake Paul” (legal name Tydus Talbott) engaged in a scripted skit - which had some internet personalities scratching their head.
KEEMSTAR called out the video during an episode of Drama Alert on January 18, where he called the video “creepy,” appearing to take issue with the toddlers discussing relatively mature issues in the name of a video.
“The video… it’s two children pretend fighting with each other, talking about some adult stuff,” KEEMSTAR said of the video. “It’s, uh, well, really creepy. Why does he have little kids going through an adult breakup?”
The video was met with mixed reactions throughout Paul’s fanbase, with some commenters calling Paul a “weirdo,” while others found the video “cute.”
Paul has since uploaded yet another video featuring Tydus, with the premise of a breakup between the “mini Jake Paul” and his girlfriend.
Jake Paul has been at the center of controversy, upon being dropped by his legal team in early January after being sued for a controversial prank video in 2017. Additionally, YouTube tightened its restrictions on challenge videos, likely in response to Paul’s ‘Bird Box Challenge’ video where he walked into traffic - and even drove - while blindfolded.
