JAKE PAUL EXPOSES HIS PAST AS A BULLY DURING ANTI-BULLYING CAMPAIGN

WHAT HAPPENED?

YouTube star-turned-pro boxer Jake Paul is currently kicking off his very own anti-bullying charity ‘Boxing Bullies’.

This is a project he decided to start after reflecting on his own history as a schoolyard bully.

“”

Growing up, I was a bully. I was insulting people, I was name-calling, demeaning them, and it was because I was insecure and I wasn’t proud of who I was. I thought it was funny. I thought it was funny to make fun of other people.

Then I realized, as I got older, that that’s not cool, the words you say to other people can have an everlasting effect on them.

When I started to get famous, chase my dreams, and put videos out there online, I was getting so much hate for it. The words affected me.

Paul’s latest endeavor has been met with acclaim and criticism in equal measure.
