Shane Dawson has revealed that his next big documentary will be focused on the younger of the two Paul brothers, called “The Mind of Jake Paul”.

Dawson is one of the original YouTube ‘stars’, having been on the platform since 2008, and recently his content has focused on these new ‘docu-series’, where he looks at other internet stars and scandals.

One of his recent documentaries focused on the ‘Tanacon’ debacle, and was expertly put together, showing the whole disaster from start to finish, with unseen footage included.

Next up is Jake Paul, the YouTuber who transferred his following from the app ‘Vine’, and now has over 16 million subscribers on the video sharing website.

The documentary, entitled “The Mind of Jake Paul”, is set to be released on September 25, according to the date in Dawson’s announcement trailer.

In the trailer, Dawson says the thing he is worried about most, is that “[Jake Paul] will be mad when he finds out what the series is actually about.”

The trailer alone has already garnered close to 6 million views, and both Shane Dawson and Jake Paul were trending on Twitter after he posted it there too.

So you can imagine, the anticipation for this documentary from fans of both YouTubers, and fans of online entertainment generally will be eager to see this.

Judging by Dawson’s previous documentaries, it may not even just be a single video. With the Tanacon situation, he made three separate videos, all around half an hour in length.

So, September 25 may only be the release of part 1 of ‘The Mind of Jake Paul’.


Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy trends on Twitter.
#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
