Popular YouTuber Logan Paul is no stranger to controversy, following claims of staging his viral slap video in late May – but now, he’s under fire for faking a different video, entirely.

Logan uploaded a joint video with his little brother Jake Paul on June 22, where the two teamed up with a “bounty hunter” to take down various “criminals” for their audience.

However, Paul claimed that the “bounty hunter” he was working with went by the name “Patty Mayo” – a popular YouTuber and police impersonator for hire, who was reported to have been involved with one of Paul’s previous videos.

Despite Paul naming Mayo an “experienced bail enforcement agent,” many fans raised their proverbial eyebrows in skepticism, noting that Mayo’s “bounty hunting” escapades are all faked.

“I feel bad for anyone who believes Patty is actually law enforcement,” one commenter said of the video.

“Can you clean the ketchup on his face?” another wrote. “It might stain.”

The Oregon Sheriff’s Office even put out a statement in January claiming that Patty Mayo was not involved with their operations, whatsoever, explaining that everyone involved in his videos were paid actors and actresses.

This wouldn’t be the first video Patty Mayo has made in collaboration with Paul, either; the actor was reported to be involved in an alleged break-in by “Flat-Earthers” in April 1, following the release of Paul’s Flat Earth “mockumentary.”

Despite some critics taking issue with the “bounty hunting” video, Paul’s fanbase appeared to be relatively happy with the upload, despite it being obviously staged – but that’s not the only video he has been accused of “faking,” by far.

The YouTuber is likewise under fire for allegedly staging his viral slap video from late May, where he appeared to knock an opponent out cold with a single slap in preparation for the Battle on the Volga.

While internet critics were quick to derail Paul’s video, trolls weren’t the only ones taking shots at the YouTuber – the slapee, professional slapper ‘Slap for Cash,’ later came out with claims that he’d been hired to help Paul get out of his impending slap battle, and even challenged him to a bout in the boxing ring.

Although Paul appeared to be up for the challenge, his next fight will take place in November 2019, against rival KSI – although no official date nor venue for the fight have yet been announced.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
