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.

It's also worth pointing out that on Kati's website, there is a disclaimer about her work.

She states: "Kati Morton, LMFT does not provide the information on these pages to substitute for individualised therapies. No claim to cure, treat, diagnose or otherwise provide mental or behavioural health care is guaranteed, promised or implied by this site.
