Was Jake Paul fired from Bizaardvark?
Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, the 20-year-old YouTuber admitted that he was fired from the show after news of his antics made headlines. "They basically called me and were like 'Yo, what's going on, what's going on?'" Jake says in the interview.
"And I just explained the situation, and they were like 'OK. We want to expedite this process of weaning you off the show.' And I was like, 'Yeah, that's fine. But it's going to look like you guys find me.' And they were like, 'We can say that we mutually parted ways and blah, blah, blah'. And that's the reality of the story."
Was Jake Paul fired from Bizaardvark? Apparently so.
While bad publicity surrounding Jake's relationship with his neighbours sped up the dismissal process, tensions between the social media star and Disney were apparently building long before, with Jake receiving angry emails from Disney after beginning to make "edgier" content. "I don't know if they were having someone scan my video's full-time, but I'm guessing they were," Jake says in the interview.
