YouTube celeb Jake Paul is known for comedic pranks, but there’s nothing funny about destroying people’s hearing … according to a new lawsuit.
A California man is going after the YouTuber and his team of pranksters for driving around L.A. with a super loud car horn and blaring it near unsuspecting pedestrians. The point of the prank? Capturing the looks on their scared faces … far as we can tell.
According to the suit, Paul and crew rolled up on the guy as he was leaving a store in WeHo and the obnoxiously loud horn ended up damaging his hearing. He says his encounter with Jake’s crew is included in a video posted on Paul’s YouTube channel.
The man’s suing Jake Paul and his company for damages for the injury and emotional distress.
