Jake Paul is someone a lot of people seem to hate. He's basically an internet troll who has made a whole lot of money that I like to think represents the American Dream, but that others like to think represents the corruption of the American Dream.
The haters think he's an obnoxious person, a fake person, and that his successful launch in the Boxing world was all just rigged and designed to make him money.
The truth is, he's brought a lot of eyeballs to the sport, people seem to get caught up in the drama and love him or hate him, he's a great marketer.
That is why I don't fully believe this story, where Jake Paul and Floyd Mayweather almost got into a brawl outside of a Miami Heat game last night.
Both just coincidentally were at the same game in a city that neither live in, only to generate some buzz in the boxing world, as both cash generators partook in the viral moment.
Luckily, a member of Mayweather's crew filmed the altercation, where Paul is seen running away from the group, because he's not ashamed to be a wimp on the internet.
Once he was in a safe space, he tweeted:
Floyd Mayweather and 50 dudes pull up out of nowhere, out of some side alley waiting for me outside of the stadium,” Paul said on Instagram. “And they’re like, ‘So what’s up? What’s all that talk now?’ I’m like, ‘First of all, what did I say to you, Floyd? I just took your hat, and you’re still mad about it? Come on, bro.’ Then 50 dudes literally start surrounding me to try and jump me.
I’m out that bitch. Floyd, you want to run it one on one, no problem, but I’m not dumb. I’m tough. I don’t need to prove my toughness, but I’m not fucking dumb. I’m not going to sit there and try to fight 50 dudes. Dipped out of that bitch.
Floyd, you’re a hoe, bro. You’re mad cause I took your f*cking hat. Are you serious? Get over it, bro. Move on.
Silly, probably staged, all to generate hype because they both want more money but even if it is real, it's silly, but you kind of feel bad for the guy. Luckily for you TMZ had the video:
