Former Disney Channel star Jake Paul thinks he’s getting a bad rap — and he’s telling the world through what can only be described as a very bad rap video.
This past weekend, the 20-year-old YouTube vlogger released “That Ain’t In The News,” a diss track that he specifically says in the intro “isn’t a diss track,” but “a message to all the news and hate.”
The video doesn’t comment on all the reasons why Paul is getting bad press.
- Paul was recently canned from his Disney Channel series “Bizaardvark″ after reports that he was terrorizing his neighbors.
- His neighbors in West Hollywood say that he’s turning his street into a “war zone” by doing stunts like lighting his swimming pool on fire.
- Last week, even Paul’s fans lambasted him for jokingly accusing a fan from Kazakhstan of being a terrorist, by saying “It sounds like you’re just gonna blow someone up … You’re like, ‘send nuke.’”
Now Paul is getting even to the haters with this so-terrible-it’s-almost-kind-of-amusing track, which features his auto-tuned voice griping about the media:
Where was y’all at when I was on email/ Tryna stop depressed fans from killin’ themselves.
Or where was y’all when I was in the kitchen/ Whippin’ up meals for kids on Thanksgiving.
Or where was y’all at when I was with the teacher/Handing out backpacks and handing out T-shirts.
Mere words don’t do it justice. Just listen:
So far, the media seems to be taking the attacks in stride.
