YouTuber Jake Paul has some words to say about the global pandemic that has been the coronavirus. Apparently, he believes that Covid-19 is a “hoax.” As of press time, there have been over 60 million cases of Covid-19 around the world with 1.42 million deaths associated with the virus.
In a new interview with the Daily Beast, when asked about his partying and how he has been openly ignoring social distancing recommendations, Jake Paul – who many are now calling a ‘Covidiot,’ said, “Yeah, I mean … it’s time for us to open up. Obviously it’s a controversial subject, but it’s time for our nation to open up and go back to normal.”
YouTuber Jake Paul Thinks Covid-19 Is One Big Hoax
He continued, “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. COVID cases are at less than 1 percent, and I think the disease is a hoax.”
He also gave his opinion on what other people should do, despite the fact that he hasn’t modeled good behavior himself.
“I think if someone’s at-risk, they should quarantine. Obviously, the coronavirus has killed people. I think if you’re at-risk, be careful. If you’re around people who are at-risk, be careful. Quarantine, do everything right, and live in a bubble, essentially,” he said.
But I think if you’re young, healthy, and don’t have any health issues, I don’t think anything should be different. These kids are losing out on education, they’re missing their graduations, they’re missing out on sports, kids are losing out on scholarships, restaurants, everything.
“A hundred percent of our nation is shut down due to the 1 percent who’s at risk, so that’s what I meant about how COVID doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t add up. There’s something more behind it that the government’s not telling us, and to me it just sucks, because so many kids’ lives are being affected by this because we’re worried about the 1 percent who are gonna die. And it sucks,” he said. “I don’t want those people to die, and nobody wants them to die, but it is the process of life. And s–t happens, so … I don’t know.”
