Popular YouTuber Justine Paradise revealed in her latest video on Sunday, May 2, that she is “overwhelmed” with all the hateful messages and death threats she has been receiving after she posted a video earlier, in April 2021, accusing Jake Paul of sexual assault. 

In the nearly 15-minute-long video, she talked about how online trolls had severely criticized her on social media, some of whom allegedly asked her to take her own life. Meanwhile, her alleged abuser has denied the accusations and has threatened to sue her if she continued to bring allegations against him. “I‘ve never experienced this amount of hate on the internet before,” she said in the video. “The hate is so insane.”

'Emotionally this has taken so much out of me'

Paradise said there were people who are sending her death threats through her DMs, and all of them were not “random people.” Apparently, people from Los Angeles have contacted her and told her she should “watch [her] back.” Some reportedly said they would physically attack her if they saw her. “Emotionally this has taken so much out of me,” she said on Sunday, April 2. 



 

And not just that, the journey from sharing her trauma to facing these threats, has been emotionally difficult, Paradise said. “I had to work up so much courage just to post that first video,” she said. “I was reopening so many memories just looking through the screenshots trying to find photos of me there.” Paradise added that she wanted to make sure people knew and understood her side of the story. “After making so many videos just trying to clarify and explain myself to people who are trying to debunk me on Twitter… Those threads were ridiculous,” she said in her video. “It’s so easy to see through the people defending Jake,” she added. 

In the end, she said that she did not regret her decision to speak up and share her truth. “I know what happened, so there’s no point in me fighting for the internet to believe it,” she said. “If people don’t believe me, they don’t believe me.” Despite the backlash she received after opened up about the accusation, Paradise said that the April 14 video was an empowering moment for her. “I’m getting a lot of hate from other people right now but I at least feel free from him,” she added. 

Jake Paul denied accusations

Paradise was in a studio with Jake Paul one day when he pulled her towards one corner and started kissing her. However, she did not resist since she found him cute. Later, Paul took her to his bedroom where the alleged incident of sexual harassment happened. Despite the absence of her consent, Paul allegedly forced her to perform oral sex. After the alleged incident, Paul reportedly ignored Paradise's calls and started behaving coldly towards her. She further insists that she would have liked to have an apology but never got one from his side. 



 

In a statement released on Twitter, Jake Paul responded to Justine Paradise's sexual assault allegations against him, saying the claim is '100% false'. He also told TMZ he feels Justine accusing him of sexual harassment on the week of his fight is not a coincidence. Paul's attorney stated, "While others have already begun to debunk the claim alleged against him, our client categorically denies the allegation and has every intention of aggressively disproving it and pursuing legal action against those responsible for the defamation of his character."
