As it turns out, Logan Paul's younger brother Jake Paul is just as big of an idiot as he is. A few days after his older sibling received major backlash for filming a dead body in Japan's Aokigahara forest, commonly referred to as the "suicide forest," a video of Jake using the n-word twice was published by TMZ.
In the 45-second clip, the Disney Channel star, 20, performs a freestyle rap over Rae Stremmurd's "Throw Sum Mo" beat. Near the beginning, he can be heard saying, "little ass n—as," and later on, he sings, "I whip it like my n—a Richie Vetter, he make the pu–y so wet it gets wetter." According to TMZ, the video was filmed during Coachella in 2017.

Jake is also in hot water for uploading a video to YouTube on Jan. 3 titled, "I lost my virginity." Though the clip doesn't include any overtly sexual references, the thumbnail image — which is clearly meant to clickbait viewers — showed the web star lying underneath his girlfriend Erika Costell's half-naked body. The Ohio native's audience is largely made up of teen girls.
His multiple missteps have only increased the negative press surrounding his brother's actions over the weekend. In the intro to Logan's viral video — which has been deleted off YouTube, but is circulating around other sites — he says, “This is not clickbait. This is the most real vlog I’ve ever posted to this channel. I think this definitely marks a moment in YouTube history because I’m pretty sure this has never hopefully happened to anyone on YouTube ever. Now with that said: Buckle the f–k up, because you’re never gonna see a video like this again!"
