People Are Calling Out Kati Morton, The Therapist In 'The World Of Jake Paul'

Amongst all the drama surrounding Shane Dawson and Jake Paul documentary series, people are calling out therapist, Kati Morton.
The latest episode of Shane Dawson's Jake Paul-focused docuseries, 'The World of Jake Paul', was jam-packed full of tons of new (weird) information. Shane kept calling himself a bad influence on Team 10, people genuinely started feeling sorry for Jake Paul, and Jake revealed that his dad lives in a school bus (?!). Still not over that last one. But, the most controversial aspect of last night's episode was the YouTube therapist, Kati Morton.
Kati Morton is a licensed therapist who makes YouTube videos focusing on mental health, relationship issues, parenting and more. She has 562,000 subscribers, and as well as making YouTube videos, she has also written a book called 'Are U OK?', which she calls a guide to caring for your mental health. Sounds great, but it's her involvement with Shane's documentary that's causing people to criticise her.
People are now calling her out her behaviour in 'The World of Jake Paul'. People felt that she was trying to egg-on situations to make Jake look bad, that she wasn't being balanced or impartial, and that she was really just there to make Jake look bad - not to give him a fair analysis. Not cool.
This isn't even the first time people are calling her out. In the second episode, 'The Mind of Jake Paul', people said she was falsely diagnosing Jake without even meeting him. Last week, people said the decision for her to visit the house 'as a producer', hiding her role as a therapist wasn't fair.
is shane really planning to sneak in kati to secretly analyse Jake, it doesn't matter that he said he would be okay with anything, no professional psychologist would ever do anything like that without proper consent, I don't trust her credibility at all— 🐾 (@leoharrie) October 3, 2018
the “psychologist” shane brought in for the jake paul vids................... uh??? she is so unprofessional and I don’t think she even knows what she’s talking about, oh my god girl. stop— manda (@taehyeaux) October 9, 2018

does this psychologist from shane dawson’s videos even know what shes doing, swear alls shes done the whole time is read from a book— taja (@tajaawright) October 9, 2018
The therapist in the Shane Dawson series is so annoying. She’s taking Jake’s real feelings and twisting them into “since he’s making me feel bad for him he might be a sociopath” like no Kati he’s literally just had a bad childhood. I don’t even like jake but damn— spooky mich 🎃👻 (@mysticmich) October 8, 2018
On the other topic of diagnosing people over the internet, I am hating this whole "sociopath" thing and the tag along Ms "I've already made my mind up now I'm trying to find vague shit to fit my narrative" psychologist or w/e on the Shane Dawson documentary at this point.— 🕸 Haunted Lex 🎃 (@figureight) October 8, 2018
That moment when the totally legit “psychologist” that Shane Dawson has in the documentary, says “this is not my specialty, I work on eating disorders and self injury *laughs nervously*”. Yeh makes sense why everyone thinks they’re a sociopath now.— 🎃Spooky Chrispy🎃 (@ItsChrispyChips) October 9, 2018
i love shane but taking kati (psychologist) as an undercover producer to analyse jake’s behaviour is so disrespectful and unethical. diagnosing someone without their consent and not even being qualified to do so is extremely unprofessional and both shane and kati are at fault.— rhiannon (@rhiannonmcgx) October 8, 2018

Honestly the therapist pisses me off. She seems very biased with her own personal opinion/beliefs, manipulating Shane’s own opinion on @jakepaul and not acting professional. Boys in my town are crazy, hunt and ride bikes etc It’s what you do in a small country town. Keen for pt.6— C H E R A K E E (@Cherakee_Ferg) October 9, 2018
It's also worth pointing out that on Kati's website, there is a disclaimer about her work.
