Social media stars Logan and Jake Paul are facing calls for arrest, after being caught in “illegal activities” during a previous trip abroad.

Thanks to a video that Logan Paul uploaded in September 2017, users across the internet – namely on controversial website 4chan – are doing everything in their power to see the YouTuber brought to justice.

The video in question, titled, “HOW TO GET DEPORTED FROM ITALY,” features both Logan and Jake Paul stripping off their clothes and jumping into one of the country’s famous canals. Just before Paul’s dive into the water, one local bystander attempted to dissuade him, warning him that the action was “forbidden.”

Despite the video’s age, 4chan posters are calling for further action against the YouTube brothers, with one user citing international law as a reason that the duo could face charges on home soil for their debacle abroad.

“It’s illegal to swim in canals in Italy,” the poster wrote. “Subject matter jurisdiction and international criminal law means, as a US citizen, you can be charged for crimes that are illegal in other countries.”

That isn’t the end of their plotm either; the poster also hopes that law enforcement will look into the Paul brothers’ previous videos, in an effort to charge them for past offenses.

While the Pauls were reportedly already arrested for their offense in Italy, Logan Paul is now part of yet another scandal, which saw charges of “animal mistreatment” to the owner of a tiger cub used in one of his older videos.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
