Recently, Paul was in the news for his controversial statement on Covid. As reported, in an interview with The Daily Beast, on November 25, Jake Paul voiced his stand on the pandemic. He said it is a “controversial subject” and that the country needs to “open up and go back to normal.” When the 23-year-old was asked if he believed it was time to move away from lockdowns, said he was “100%” certain, before elaborating on his stance.
Paul said in the interview, “There are people losing jobs, there are small businesses who are going bankrupt, there are millions of people who are unemployed right now, people are turning to alcohol and drugs to cope with everything that’s going on. This is the most detrimental thing to our society,” He went on and said, “Covid cases are at less than 1%, and I think the disease is a hoax.” Paul continued, “You know, 98% of news is fake, so how do we know what’s actually real, and what we’re actually supposed to do?” Paul was then told by interviewer Marlow Stern that the virus has killed nearly 260,000 Americans to which the boxer said “so has the flu”.
But later, in an interview with The Verge, he claimed he was “misquoted”. When the interviewer asked him, “Do you stand by the idea that Covid is a hoax?”, Paul replied, “No, no. Covid is very, very real. Covid is very real, like, it’s killed so many people. It’s killed people I know. It’s killed someone very, very close to me. So that’s what I’m saying. I don’t even know where that came from.”
