Jake Paul issued a response after sparking outrage by filming inside an Arizona mall as it was being looted by protesters.

The popular YouTube celebrity posted videos to his Instagram Story over the weekend at a protest against police brutality that, like many across the United States, was sparked by the death of George Floyd. The first videos show him wearing a face mask and protesting police outside. He captioned videos “america is in ruins” and “what can we do” before sharing a photo of his face saying that he was tear-gassed by officers and that his eye was bleeding.

Later videos emerged on Twitter showing Paul and his crew inside the Fashion Square Mall in Scottsdale, Ariz., as it was being looted and vandalized. At no point in the videos does Paul or his team appear to be participating in the looting or vandalism, although at one point someone hands him a bottle of vodka that appears to have been stolen. It didn’t take long before people noticed his presence and he received immense backlash on social media.
