Jake Paul is a notorious, polarizing figure.

It’s hard to say whether he or Logan is the worse behaved Paul brother. They are both very familiar with controversy.

Recent footage had social media crying out that Jake must be using cocaine.

Now, Jake has a lengthy, high-energy video in which he’s insisting that it’s not true. He can explain what viewers think that they saw.

Okay, so Logan Paul has been big into boxing in recent years. We guess that being internet-famous and having money wasn’t doing enough harm to his brain, so he decided on something more direct.

Last weekend, his brother Jake appeared on camera while rubbing his nose. This was in the background after Logan’s fight with Dillon Danis.

The Paul brothers have a certain … reputation … for wild behavior. Some wondered if Jake had just been snorting cocaine in plain sight, perhaps to celebrate Logan’s victory.

Social media took off with the idea — spinning what could have been an offhand joke into direct accusations.

So, in a lengthy and high-energy video, Jake addressed the allegations.

As you can see in the video and screenshots below, he begins that segment of the video in a room that he has strewn with Coca-Cola products (get it, “coke” everywhere?).

It doesn’t stop there.

Jake begins to act over-the-top, ripping off his shirt as if he were out of his mind.

(We’d never refer to cocaine as a mild or safe drug, but if someone snorts a bump of coke and then rips off their shirt, either something else is going on or that wasn’t cocaine. They might want to seek medical help)

“Y’all want some Coke?” Jake asks in an over-the-top manner.

He doesn’t stop with the soda jokes. (The name overlap is not a coincidence! Coca-Cola once contained cocaine. In my grandmother’s youth, the soda was “only for men” as a result. Sexism and drugs before the invention of rock-and-roll)

Jake grabs an unidentified white powder from on top of the dresser and tosses it into the air.

Despite his brand, Jake does get serious. In his video, he clarifies that he wasn’t doing coke — he’s just extremely sweaty.

He even zooms in, showing off just how much his antics have caused him to sweat. His skin is red and he is sweaty.

(I know that Los Angeles is basically a cult devoted to pretending that 60 degrees Fahrenheit is “cold,” but I’d recommend air conditioning. Also, not doing physical activity while you’re digesting meat and cheese)

“This is the thing, is I go to brawl in the ring to save my f–king brother,” Jake explained.

“Forty grown men around me, everyone’s huffing and puffing, I’m yelling, ‘You bitch, you’re lucky I didn’t kill you,’” he recalls.

“And,” Jake highlights, “I’m literally drenched in sweat.” So he wiped his face. “I come out, everyone knows I’m the most sweatiest person in the world.

“I’m literally sweating down my face, so I’m just like this, trying to get the sweat off of my f–king face,” Jake explains.

His girlfriend, Jutta Leerdam, backs him up during the video. She’s a bit more defensive of him than he seems to be.

Meanwhile, Jake says that he’s more into mushrooms and wine.
