Jake Paul is out of a job at Disney Channel
Jake Paul is out of a job.
Disney Channel announced Saturday that the YouTube star will no longer appear on its one-year-old show Bizaardvark.
“We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark,” a Disney spokesperson said. “On behalf of the production company, the cast and crew, we thank Jake for his good work on the TV series for the past 18 months and extend our best wishes to him.”
Paul confirmed the news on his Twitter, where he wrote, “Love you all! Thanks for the support … Can’t wait to continue to grow and conquer” and posted a photo of a note where he called working with the Disney Channel “a dream come true” and said he wants to spend more time working on his “personal brand.”
Paul, who played Dirk Mann on the Disney show, has made headlines lately for his allegedly not-so-neighborly behavior in his West Hollywood, California home. In a recent TV report that aired in Los Angeles Monday, neighbors of Paul are reportedly looking to meet with city officials about his antics, like setting fire to furniture in an empty pool.
Production on the second season of Bizaarvark resumes Monday.
