Jake Paul, who recently claimed he’s ‘suffering from memory loss,’ has ‘threatened’ Vladimir Putin following his invasion of Ukraine

The YouTuber-turned-boxer took to Twitter on March 3 and jokingly announced that a fight would be taking place between himself and the Russian President.

He tweeted: “Big news. Tickets on sale next week. #PaulPutin brought to you by @TimJDillon promotions.”

The post has garnered a whopping 25.5k likes and hundreds have taken to the comments and shared their thoughts.

One commented: “He needs to put Putin in his place.”

Another added: “First time liking a Jake Paul tweet. Cheers for the lil smirk that gave me Jake.”

“I’d pay serious money to see that. Probably the only fight on earth where is actually cheer for @jakepaul!” a third said. 

However, others didn’t see the funny side of Paul’s post and said it was ‘insensitive’ to make the crisis into a meme.

Slamming the social media personality, one wrote: “Jake, I know that you’re a successful boxer but posting a fake boxing poster at this moment in time is not appropriate. Millions of people are fighting for their lives in a war.”

In agreement, a second remarked: “Yeah, this ain’t it. I get ‘memeing’ on the situation but clout chasing and self-promo on top of lost lives ain’t it. But then it’s a Paul brother so no surprises there.”

Previously, Paul has taken to Twitter and said his ‘thoughts’ are with those involved in the crisis.

The 25-year-old penned: “My thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and Russia who are both going to suffer greatly from all of this mayhem.”
