The organization ran by Popular YouTuber Jake Paul, Team 10, has come under fire after an ‘exposing’ video was released by two transgender women, claiming they were kicked out of his Team 10 house because they were not “real girls”.

Jake Paul’s Team 10 House has been home to a number of content creators since first moving in, and perhaps unsurprisingly, has been also been home to plenty of controversies.

One of Jake Paul’s editors, Blaine, is at the root of the latest drama, after YouTuber Lilah Gibney released a video on June 29 claiming he kicked her and her friend Kendall out of the Calabasas mansion, for being transgender.

Jake Paul YoutubeJake Paul’s Team 10 house has had its fair share of ups and downs.

In the exposing video, Lilah claims that shortly after they arrived at the Team 10 house for a party, they were approached by Blaine and asked to leave.

Lilah then explained that when they asked Blaine why they were getting removed from the party, he apparently said that it was because they were not real girls, quoting him saying, “I don’t know, I thought you guys were going to come with real girls.”

The video then cut to a short recording of the encounter with the editor going back and forth with Lilah and Kendall after asking them to leave, “I’m not trying to be disrespectful, I’m just being real.” He expressed, before stating, “I was told girls were coming.”

The pair did state that Jake Paul himself was not involved in the situation, and explained that they have no hard feelings towards him: “Jake Paul himself, love him, we’ve had great conversations, such a good guy.”

Instead, the blame was mostly shifted towards Blaine and other members of the house, who had watched them being kicked out of the party.

At the time of writing, Jake Paul or anyone from Team 10 is yet to respond regarding the incident.

It’s a beautiful thing when the internet comes together to bring about iconic memes. Lately, Kim Kardashian is the inspiration behind a hilarious trend after she tweeted about her lavish birthday party. 

On October 27, Kim revealed to the world how she was celebrating her 40th birthday in style through a thread on Twitter, filled with images from the gathering.

She wrote, “I don’t think any of us truly appreciated what a simple luxury it was to be able to travel and be together with family and friends in a safe environment.”

And she also acknowledged her own privilege, adding “I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is”

But one particular tweet in the thread found a whole new life of its own after parodies exploded on the platform. The tweet read, “After 2 weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.”

Twitter found it hilarious, providing their own versions of images alongside the text from the viral tweet – from different impressions of “private islands” to ominous depictions of the “inner circle”.  Scroll down to see some of the best parodies so far.

Drag Race’s Lemon inspired the ultimate nostalgia by pasting the tweet alongside an image from Club Penguin of the crowded iceberg from the game.

Journalist Sophie Thompson went so far as to use a screengrab from Midsommar, implying that a seemingly innocent getaway could turn into a horror movie – it is spooky season after all.

Attorney and author Rabia O’Chaudry continued the theme of implied violence with a screengrab from Game of Thrones, taking the narrative to a whole other level.
