Jake Paul is a social media influencer and former Disney star who made headlines in the summer of 2020 for throwing parties amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in December of 2020, he made headlines again when he was raided by the FBI on suspicion of being involved in the looting of a mall during protests in Scottsdale, Arizona. He was also accused of endangering lives by attending parties amid the pandemic.
Jake Paul’s brother, Logan Paul, is also a social media influencer and YouTuber. He gained notoriety in early 2018 when he filmed a dead body in Japan’s Aokigahara forest and posted it on YouTube. He faced backlash and was suspended from the platform. In December of 2020, Logan Paul made headlines when he believed he had caught Bigfoot, and it was later revealed to be a man in a costume.
Both Jake and Logan Paul have been detained since December, with Jake being held on charges of criminal trespass and unlawful assembly, and Logan being held on charges of inciting a riot. Both brothers have used their social media platforms to address the charges against them and proclaim their innocence.
The detention of the brothers has sparked conversation and controversy around social media influencers and their accountability for their actions. Many argue that social media platforms have a responsibility to hold their influencers accountable for their actions outside of the platform, while others argue that these actions should be dealt with by the legal system and not the platform.
In conclusion, the detention of social media influencers Jake and Logan Paul in December of 2020 has caused controversy and sparked conversation around the accountability of social media platforms and their influencers. While both brothers have used their platforms to address the charges against them, many are still debating the responsibility of social media platforms in holding their influencers accountable for their actions outside of the platform. The question remains – should these actions be dealt with by the legal system or by the platform?
