Paul always keeps himself active on his social media. That said, fans are well acquainted with Paul hitting out at his rivals through his social handles. However, at times, ‘The Problem Child’ comes up with some heartfelt messages.

A few days back, the Executive Director of UN World Food Programme, David Beasley, was in an interview with CNN. Here, he asserted if billionaires of the world could contribute about $6 billion, then starvation could come to an end.

Elon Musk tweeted about the same. He wrote, “If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it.”

Accordingly, Jake Paul, too, saw an opportunity here to sneak in and attract every combat sports lover’s attention. However, he put forth a condition for donating $10 million, and that was to get the targeted retweets.

Knowingly or unknowingly, Jake Paul surely knows how to market himself and his statements. He is by far the trendiest boxer who always catches up with the ongoing trends or buzz.
