To paraphrase Jane Austen, it is a truth universally acknowledged that the Paul brothers, Logan and Jake, are huge internet trolls and career jerks.
Jake Paul, the younger brother, who has “built a career out of peddling merch to children and being loud on the internet” decided he’d had enough and took a “stand” against fellow YouTuber Cody Ko, who has built a career on reacting to cringe-y content online.
And the internet is so over Paul that the jokes came rolling in.
All these years I thought Jake Paul had no comedic talent but then he made a video trying to cancel Cody Ko for being a cyber bully and if that’s not one of the best jokes of 2019 idk what is

cody ko is not only one of the smartest digital creators out there (he is an actual software engineer) but also the nicest. jake paul on the other hand demanded that i pay him 1.2 million dollars to keep making vines, which, in case you didn’t hear, i did not do. ✌🏻

Paul’s “takedown” of Ko consisted of him whining that “[Ko] just sh*ts on people to become famous,” which is basically the reason Paul created this whole gimmick:
“I’m not YouTube’s hero, I’m not here to save the day … this guy Cody Ko, he’s a cyberbully and I f*cking hate cyberbullies.”

Here are some receipts of Jake Paul being an actual real life bully:
But hey, being a huge hypocrite is just a part of being a Paul sibling, isn’t it?

“This guy is 28 years old, sitting behind a computer making fun of kids younger than him,” Paul complained about Ko. “And he’s comedic, yes … he’s definitely crossing the line in a huge way.”
“Kids? You’re an adult. Which kids?” Ko asked in response.
Still, Ko apologized:
“I’m sorry for bullying you.”
“I can’t tell if he’s joking.”
Saw Jake Paul trending, decided to check what it was about. Subscribed to Cody Ko.

Jake Paul made a video and the whole intro is “Cody Ko is a wannabe comedian who isn’t even funny” the minute he’s in front of Cody though he’s like “no bro you’re hilarious nobody’s debating that”
