If you’re a kid these days you know who YouTube star Jake Paul is. Well, he’s been dropped by The Disney network, after he was accused of terrorizing his West Hollywood neighborhood.
The 20-year-old made the announcement Saturday on Twitter, writing that he’s simply ‘outgrown’ the channel. Paul has played the role of Dirk on Disney Channel’s “Bizaardvark” for the last two years.
He tweeted, ‘My team, Disney Channel, and I have come to the agreement it’s finally time for me to move from the Disney family and Bizaardvark.’ The YouTube star is famous for his ‘crazy’ pranks which have included throwing a Harley Davidson in his backyard pool and setting furniture on fire.
He said that ‘being a part of the Disney family for the past two years was incredible and a dream come true.’
The network also released a statement, saying, ‘We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series ‘Bizaardvark.’ We thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him.’
I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I’m very proud of my Puerto Rican heritage. I speak fluent Spanish. I love the outdoors, playing with my kids, and spending time in the kitchen with my wife Jennifer.
Very few people in this world are blessed to do something they love for a living. I really love my job! I caught the radio bug when I was 9 years old. I sat there, watching my dad run a broadcast and speaking through a microphone to live callers. It amazed me so much..So much that it’s my life now, and I love it!
