Disney star Jake Paul draws ire after news piece on neighbours' noise complaints

Disney and YouTube star Jake Paul has attracted a string of negative headlines after appearing on a local newscast making light of his neighbours' noise complaints.

Paul, who has the world's 150th most subscribed to YouTube channel with 8.6 million followers, recently bought himself a mansion in the Beverly Hills with the money he made through that, his starring role on Disney Channel's Bizaardvark, and his marketing company.

However, he hasn't exactly won over his new neighbours. He makes his address public which regularly draws crowds of fans, and his Team 10 crew often perform raucous stunts and pranks at his new abode.

And it's not exactly like he was the most popular internet star before that, with his debut single 'It's Everyday, Bro' the 10th most disliked YouTube video in history.

But now his reputation among those outside his 'Jake Paulers' fan club has sunk to new lows after noise complaints filed saw him become the subject of a news story.

KTLA5 caught up with the 20-year-old at his home on Tuesday (local time), where he was defiant in the face of the lawsuit likely to be brought against him.

"My neighbours hate me, but I'm still going to flippin' send it," he said, staring directly down the barrel of the network's TV camera before doing a wheelie down the street on a motorbike.

One neighbour told the news agency that the street has become "a warzone" since Paul moved in.

And that he appeared to prove upon KTLA5's arrival, shooting a t-shirt into a tree with a cannon before climbing onto the roof of their news van.

He then got down to give an unapologetic response to a question on the noise complaints.

"It is [like a circus], but people like going to circuses, right? Honestly, it's terrible, it's a bad situation and I feel bad for them for sure," he said.

"There's nothing we can do though - the Jake Paulers are the strongest army out there," he said, before unleashing a dab and mocking the reporter's choice of footwear.

The star has been widely panned over the newscast on social media, and has even drawn comparisons to infamous Australian party-runner Corey Worthington.
