YouTube personality, Jake Paul, asked his fans on Tuesday to promote his merchandise by challenging them to do this one thing and it’s getting all his fans in trouble.
On Tuesday, he posted a video on Youtube asking his fans, called the Jake Paulers, to “join the everyday bro movement” by writing the link of his website on their schools’ whiteboards and chalkboards.
He calls it “The Chalkboard Challenge.” As soon as students write down the website link on the chalkboard or whiteboard, they were asked to take photos and tweet it to him, completing the challenge.
The website sells fan merchandise like backpacks, hoodies, phone cases, T-shirts and many other items. Fans were quick to do the seemingly harmless challenge.
But some of the Jake Paulers got in pretty big trouble—from detention to suspension.

Though these kids are getting repercussions for advertising Jake Paul’s merch, they don’t seem to regret plugging the YouTuber’s website.
One thing’s for sure, Jake Paul knows his fans better than anyone else.
The Jake Paulers are rebels
