A party during the pandemic

Jake Paul hosted a party at his home in Calabasas, Los Angeles in July where young people were seen without masks nor respecting social distance. The mayor Alicia Weintraub was not happy. "It's completely unacceptable to be interacting with people like that during this time. People need to be wearing masks and people need to be keeping their distance. You can't be having parties with over 100 people". After the incident Weintraub established a $100 fine for people who host large gatherings.

A prank on the Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

In 2016 Paul took a giant teddy bear to LAX airport to see if he could get it on the plane. He couldn't and TSA posted a photo of a sad teddy that caused people to comment furiously saying they had ruined a child's Christmas. Turns out it was all a prank.
