YouTube star Jake Paul spotted among looters in an Arizona mall: report

YouTuber Jake Paul is under fire after being spotted in a crowd of looters at an Arizona mall Saturday, according to a report.

Paul, 23, is seen wearing a mask, according to cell phone video with a crowd of protestors at the Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale, TMZ reported.

He’s initially seen in a crowd outside the mall, and at one point one of the protesters launches fireworks at the building’s entrance.

“Bunch of f–king idiots, bro,” a man’s voice is heard saying, pointing to police outside the mall. “Literally, I walked right here, right up to there.”

It is unclear if the voice is Paul’s or that of, Andrew Blue, who recorded the footage, according to Us Weekly

.

“These f–king idiots teargassed me,” the man said. “I ain’t doing s–t, bro. Look at them pointing guns at me.”

“Look at them. Twenty guns on me. Twenty guns on me right now.”

When the video resumes Paul is seen inside the mall with more than a dozen other people — although he is not seen looting or causing any damage.

However, people are seen in the video running with merchandise, entering a store, and trying to damage a kiosk. At one point two people are seen attempting to kick open the door of another store.

Written over the video is the message: “America is in ruins.”
