“There are so many messages of people just telling me just to kill myself.”
TikToker Justine Paradise just revealed that since she came forward with sexual assault allegations against Jake Paul, she’s received countless threats. Let’s get into this very upsetting situation.
In case you missed it, last month TikToker Justine Paradise shocked fans with a 20-minute YouTube video detailing her 2019 sexual assault story involving Jake Paul.
We would like to issue a trigger warning here before getting into any more details of this story. We will be discussing topics like sexual assault and self-harm in this video, so please only continue watching if you feel comfortable and safe doing so.
In her video, titled “TRIGGER WARNING: Jake Paul Sexually Assaulted Me,” Justine opened up about an experience she had with Jake that quickly took a turn for the worse. After some consensual kissing, Justine alleges that Jake made multiple attempts at putting her hand in places she didn’t want to.
Then, according to Justine, Jake allegedly unbuttoned his pants and forced her to perform oral sex on him while he was physically on top of her. Jake has since denied these allegations in a lengthy Twitter post. He called the claim 100% false and noted he has never had any sexual relations with “this individual.”
Jake also added that he plans on pursuing defamation of character case against Justine to “prove his innocence.” But now, a few weeks after she posted her video, Justine is speaking out about the backlash she’s received since sharing her story.
In her update, Justin revealed that following her accusations of sexual assault against Jake Paul, she received an influx of threats and “disgusting hate.” “I’m getting so many threats in my DMs. Not just from random people but from people who are in Los Angeles, telling me that they’re here so I need to watch my back. People saying that they will fight me if they see me, people saying that I need to kill myself.”
Justine revealed how upsetting this experience has been for her after sharing her experience. “That’s super overwhelming for me because I’ve never experienced this amount of hate on the internet before. The hate is so insane.”
She explained that a lot of the hate is coming from people who don’t believe her. “I know what happened so there’s no point in me fighting for the internet to me. If people don’t believe me they don’t believe me.” And Justine clarified why she put her video out and decided to share her story in the first place.
She said that she wanted to protect other people and spread awareness about what happened to her first and foremost. “Whether people believe me or not, at least now when girls hang out with him now they’ll have that in the back of their minds you know?”
Justine also added that she was hoping to apologize to Jake, but as we know, that didn’t happen. “I was hoping for it or some acknowledgement of it, but I didn’t, he just denied everything which sucked.”
And since receiving all the hate, threats, and backlash, Justine said she’s considering turning off her comments altogether and making it so only people she follows can message her. And on Jake’s end, as far as we know, his team still hasn’t taken any legal action against Justine yet, but we will keep you posted if we hear anything else.
