One of the Paul brothers got in hot water for being annoying in public. Again.
Jake Paul caused a scene at a North Carolina amusement park this week when he rented a motorized scooter meant for handicapped visitors and rode it throughout the grounds shouting and trying to do tricks on it. Members of his Team 10 crew were reportedly there with him, and the YouTubers were seen racing, attempting flips, and operating the scooter with multiple people piled on top. Paul also seemed to be encouraging kids in the park to chase the scooter and “almost ran over a crowd of people.”
Video of the day at Carowinds has since been scrubbed from a lot of Instagram accounts, but the Blast was able to edit together a reel before the posts were taken down. In the video, kids can be heard screaming and chasing after Paul as he yells, “Get to the Batmobile!” Paul can also be heard encouraging kids to punch another rider “in the head.”

A representative from Carowinds said that Paul was not ejected from the park by staff, but decided to leave on his own after several reminders from security about how to safely operate a scooter.
“We do not condone Jake Paul’s behavior, and after park security insisted that he follow the safety rules he decided to leave the property,” the rep said.
A rep for Jake Paul denies any wrongdoing on the part of Paul and his crew, and said they decided to leave on their own because of the “overwhelming crowd of fans.”
Paul has been making headlines recently because his squad seems to be slowly disbanding, and with a constant stream of press like this, it’s not difficult to guess why.
