Shane Dawon's documentary has created a lot of buzz around Jake Paul, and it's affected his views and subscribers.

Shane Dawson's latest documentary, 'The Mind of Jake Paul', aims to determine whether or not Jake Paul is a sociopath. It's essential viewing, and very dramatic, but it doesn't paint Jake in the best light at points. As a result of this, Jake's subscriber count has slowed, but his video views have shot up.

You would think that due to the controversial nature of the documentary, and Shane basically implying that Jake is a sociopath, devoid of all normal human emotions and sense of right or wrong, he would lose both subscribers and views. But, in an odd turn of events, while Jake's subscriber count is slowing, it looks like Shane's documentary is boosting Jake's views.

According to Jake's Social Blade page, his subscribers are still growing, just at a much slower rate than before. In the last 2 weeks before the documentary, Jake was gaining around 15,000 subscribers a day. Since Tuesday, he's gained a daily average of 3,000 subscribers. Looking at Jake's live subscriber feed, it is very up and down, but on the whole, he seems to be gaining subscribers faster than he's losing them.

Comparing all this to the last few months, Jake's subscribers had also been declining until July, and this growth happened around the time talks of this documentary began. But interestingly, his views at this time dropped at a faster rate than we've seen from him in a while.

Jake's views on the other hand have SHOT UP. This might be people being curious as to what he's like, wanting to make their own mind up about him, or it could just be people wondering who the hell he is. Since the documentary release, Jake is getting over 1 million more views a day compared to last week. He gained over 3 million views on Wednesday alone.
