It turns out there is something worse than getting a job working for influencer Logan Paul — getting rejected by Logan Paul.
For those not in the know, Paul is a former Vine star and current YouTuber, who has found cross-platform success on TikTok and has been involved in his fair share of controversy throughout the years. Oh, he recently branched into professional boxing and his matches have become, how do we say… somewhat of a spectacle.
Not to be confused for his younger brother Jake Paul — who has followed in his brother’s footsteps with his own set of online controversies and boxing career — Logan Paul is recently making headlines, thanks to a young man that thought he could immediately get a job from the influencer.
Austin Wallace is 22 and quit his six-figure job to make it big. His plan to do so? By harassing Logan Paul.
Wallace uploaded a video to TikTok of him in tears after being rejected by Paul. Interesting that a very famous person wouldn’t give a stranger a job on the spot.
“I don’t know what to do,” he said in the clip, which was filmed in a car. “I did come up here by myself, I do have family but we’re not the closest, and I don’t have really close friends. You know there’s millions of people trying to do what I wanna do. Just watch the clip.”
The video then cuts away to a clip where viewers get to see the rejection happening. And, here’s where Paul is asked for a job.
Yeah, it doesn’t look like the man was ready for that question. However, he gave the guy a chance and asked Wallace what skills he had. Wallace could not think of any skills that could help.
“Then why would I give you a job?” Paul said.
But Wallace didn’t let up. He went on to say he had nobody to help him, no friends, family or career connections. Paul said he only had his brother Jake in the beginning. Then, Paul offered up some legitimate advice to Wallace:
“If you really are serious about it, you should move to LA and just like you approached me, start making connections with every single person in LA. … I’m serious, that’s it. I’ve always said, if you can talk to someone, you can make it in LA.”
