We're Pretty Sure Jake Paul Is Pretending To Be Hacked For Attention

Anything for views.
Team 10 leader Jake Paul spend much of Saturday reacting to an alleged hack attack on his YouTube channel - but if you ask us, it all seems a little bit... untrue.
On December 16th, someone "hacked" "broke into" Jake Paul's YouTube and Instagram account, and shared a now-deleted video threatening to release videos, photos and messages to expose Jake. This alleged "person" was apparently upset that they'd not been allowed to join Team 10 (but somehow had access to Jake's passwords). The hacker used voice-changing technology to mask their voice in the video, and a creepy Jake Paul mask to mask their face.
After the "hack", Jake uploaded a fairly unconvincing video to Twitter, in which he told fans, "All my shit's hacked. Just ignore all the posts and stuff if you can, we're contacting YouTube and Instagram."

But shortly after Jake Paul got "hacked", people began to notice little issues with what was allegedly taking place.
One viewer noticed that the Jake Paul mask seen in the now-deleted hacking video was the exact same mask that was seen on Alex DeLena (girlfriend of Chance Sutton) Instagram story - which was filmed in the team 10 house.
Here is someone wearing the mask on Alex Delena Ig stories 5 hours ago at the team 10 house.— gustavo (@gustavonever) December 17, 2017
Done, Jake Paul exposed again. Can we move on to the next drama now? pic.twitter.com/C5YfAtGynL
People are generally unconvinced

Bro your so fake. All your 12 year fans are buying this but in reality this is just a publicity stunt to get your views up since they have been dropping lately— Cameron (@cameronspiess11) December 18, 2017
it's all a publicity stunt— JhbTeam (@JhbTeam) December 17, 2017
this would of been more believable if you didnt upload a good editing vid cause no hackers does that— MLGSnyper (@MLGKEK) December 17, 2017
It wouldn't be the first time Jake Paul faked a drama for attention
Earlier this year it was revealed that Jake's "relationship" with Erika Costell was a fabrication. Jake even revealed that his social media persona was a bit of a construction too.
