It all started when YouTubers Lilah Gibney and Kendall Raindrop took to YouTube to post a video, in which they exposed a Team 10 editor named Blaine O’Roark for kicking them out of the house because he expected “real girls” to show up. This is so not OK.
On July 2, Lilah posted Team 10’s statement, which said, “Jake Paul and Team 10 have continuously embraced the LGBTQ community with open arms.” The statement also claimed that the brand is launching a “full, internal investigation into the matter.”
Lilah tweeted in response to the statement, “wait what is there to investigate??? video proof usually is enough babe! i wasn’t welcomed with ‘open arms’ but told you LEAVE. so grossed out & hurt that transphobia is being normalized & not talked about like its a real thing that transgender people deal with DAILY. period.”

In Lilah and Kendall’s initial video, they explained how they ended up at the Team 10 house in the first place — and according to them, they were invited to the house.
Lilah explained, “We were at a party, and we were both just doing our thing, feeling cute. We were literally being sober legends tonight because we have such a big night tomorrow full of drinking, and so we were just like, ‘Let’s go socialize, have a cute little fun night.’ And so we get in our Uber to this afterparty, and then Kendall is like, ‘OK, let’s go to the Team 10 house.’”
Kendall added, “We were like on the way to this party, and I literally changed my Uber location ’cause they told us to come.”
Lilah went on to explain that Blaine allegedly approached their group, which consisted of Lilah, Kendall and their cisgender female friend. Despite the fact that they just arrived, they claim that he told them they should leave because he thought “real girls” were coming.
In a tweet on July 1, Jake claimed that people are always trying to “cancel” him and that his past controversies have “showed nothing but the fact that other parties were lying.”
its funny that time after time of ppl trying 2 cancel me or the ppl around me that there is ANY weight to it… since day 1 all my "controversies" have been cleared & aired out publicly & they showed nothing but the fact that other parties were lying.. try again! ill be beachside
