Jake Paul's Claim That America Is Greatest Country In The World Goes Down Very Badly

Social media users have leapt to their keyboards in outrage over Jake Paul's statement that America is 'the greatest country in the world'.

It's debatable whether Jake Paul spends more time on Twitter or more time training for fights since he changed careers from being a YouTuber to a boxer.

When he's not rinsing Tommy Fury, he's challenging other fighters such as former pro boxer Mike Tyson to step into the ring with him.

However, today, on Independence Day, Paul used the social media platform to declare his unwavering love for America - a gesture which has been met with fierce backlash.

Giving his Twitter a rest from accusing Fury of being in 'hiding' in a bid to avoid the pair's fight which is set to go ahead on 6 August at Madison Square Garden depending on whether the former Love Islander is allowed into the country, Paul instead celebrated the 'great[ness]' of America.

He wrote: "America is the greatest country in the world, no nation compares even when times are bad.

"Happy 4th and God bless America."

Normally, many US citizens wouldn't have batted an eyelid at Paul's declaration of love for his country.

If anything, it would have been applauded, with many Americans having celebrated their country's independence every 4 July for decades.

However, in light of the recent decision by the Supreme Court to overturn the Roe v Wade ruling which allowed millions of women the right to an abortion, Paul's statement has not been met with the same patriotic love as it may have in previous years.

Many users have condemned and questioned Paul's statement, drawing particular attention to the recent Supreme Court ruling.

"Explain roe vs wade then," one said.

Another wrote: "Such an amazing country where abortion is illegal."

A third, who replied with an image of an article about a 10-year-old being denied an abortion, commented: "Don't know about that one chief."

Others noted recent mass shootings which have taken place across the country.

"Whys there so many mass shootings and school shootings then," they said.

Another wrote: "Is that why so many kids get killed in school."

"Greatest country but silly amount of school shootings... no thanks nobhead!" a third commented.


A final summarised: "School and healthcare cost a fortune, women can’t decide what to do with their own bodies, gun laws are horrible and we won’t even talk about racism and police brutality, but yeah greatest country in the world."
