Jake Paul Exits Disney’s Bizaardvark Days After Neighborhood Drama
Say goodbye to Dirk Mann, ’cause Jake Paul is OUT on Disney Channel’s Bizaardvark! That’s right, days after the 20-year-old actor’s neighbors threatened to file a class action public nuisance lawsuit against him and the homeowner of the Team 10 house, he and the network “mutually agreed” that he exit the television series.
“We’ve mutually agreed that Jake Paul will leave his role on the Disney Channel series Bizaardvark,” Disney said in a statement. “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.”
Jake echoed Disney’s words, saying, “My team, Disney Channel and I have come to the agreement its finally time for me to move on from the Disney family and Bizaardvark. Being a part of the Disney family for the past two years was incredible and a dream come true.”

Is it a coincidence that this decision was reached after all the drama? We highly doubt it, especially since he was “chillin'” on the Bizaardvark set two days prior to the announcement:
Location: Bizaardvark set DTLA
Appetite: The game
Merch: link in bio

You know who’s probably living for this news? The YouTube star’s ex-girlfriend, Alissa Violet, who famously rapped, “Stop braggin’, just accept nobody knows your Disney show,” in her diss track with RiceGum, “Its Everynight Sis.”
Former Vine star Hayes Grier is also probably finding some pleasure in this situation, since he totally threw shade Jake’s way after JP boasted about his casting in March 2016, “First ever social media star to be on Disney & be a series regular on TV… OMGGGG. I’m so excited to announce this!! I am seriously at a loss for words right now!!”
Hayes tweeted (then deleted), “”I’m lost at words”, “I’m the first ever social media person,” “first ever on a series tv show” come on bro. Gotta know better #truth.” Remember, Hayes was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. (However, Hayes was technically in the wrong because Jake was the first online personality to land a recurring gig on a scripted television show.)
Whatever the case, we’re sure Jake will get over it soon (if he hasn’t already).
