Jake Paul's WAY Dangerous Bird Box Challenge Video Immediately Pulled From YouTube!

Jake Paul Bird Box Challenge Video

The Paul brothers have done it again.
This time it was Jake Paul who crossed the line so bad his video got removed from YouTube.
In case you haven’t heard of the latest viral trend, the “Bird Box Challenge” requires you to attempt normal, everyday tasks while wearing a blindfold, as Sandra Bullock has to do in the hit horror film.

Even after Netflix warned people not to do anything dangerous, Jake chose to put a video on his channel in which he drives a car, crosses a busy street traffic, and eventually walks into a pond.
Well, it was all too much for YouTube — they took down the video FAST, presumably as it violates their policy against videos which “encourage dangerous or illegal activities that have an inherent risk of serious physical harm or death.”
Because this is a “challenge” it obviously has an aspect of encouraging viewers to try themselves.
The video did have a disclaimer which read:

“Please be warned (and we cannot possibly stress this enough); under no circumstances should any challenges, stunts, or pranks be attempted by any of our viewers. All challenges, stunts, and pranks are performed by trained professionals in a controlled environment with proper safety measures taken, and are for entertainment purposes only! Again, do not try this at home!”

But we guess the video platform wasn’t buying it!
What do YOU think of Jake Paul’s latest controversy??
