YouTubers Jake Paul and Tana Mongeau charge $75 for fans to stream their wedding

A pair of popular YouTubers are copping serious flack for charging fans US$50 to stream their wedding online. 

Tana Mongeau and Jake Paul are set to be wed in Las Vegas on Sunday (local time) in a ceremony that will be live streamed via Halogen TV. 

But disappointed fans will be forced to shell out US$50 (NZ$75) for the pleasure. 

The pair first raised eyebrows after announcing their engagement at Mongeau's 21st birthday celebrations in June, after only two months of dating. 

In a pop-up on the Halogen website, it promises the nuptials will be the "wedding of the century", which has attracted its fair share of mockery.

"The Royal Wedding was free, like come on Tana," one person wrote.

"Are you having a laugh? $49.99 to watch a wedding for clout? No thanks," wrote another. 

Others used hilarious memes to demonstrate their feelings. 

It's not the first time the couple has garnered criticism, with accusations from naysayers doubting they're both in it for the right reasons. 

On Friday, Mongeau responded to the doubters via Twitter, writing: "I'm feeling feisty: I don't care if you think my wedding's real. I don't care if you think my marriage is real. I don't care if you think Jake and I don't love each other. I don't care if you think getting married fast is a bad idea. I don't care if you think it's gonna last. OOPS!"

Two days before their wedding, the couple told Metro the ceremony is costing a staggering US$500,000 (NZ$753,317), which probably explains the charge. 

While Jake Paul may be a lesser known name to many Kiwis, they're probably more familiar with his brother, fellow YouTuber Logan Paul. He's notoriously made international headlines for several stunts, including promising to "go gay for one month" and posing near the body of a suicide victim for his channel. 

Halogen TV is, incidentally, the same streaming service which helped with Logan's recent Challenger Games event.

Congrats to the happy couple!
