Why was Cole Carrigan kicked out of Team 10?
Cole was part of the new Team 10, but he unfortunately revealed on July 1, 2019, that he had been kicked out.
“Just want to let you guys know that I am no longer a part of Team 10 anymore,” he wrote on Twitter. “Details will be up later this week. Love you.”
He also claimed on his Instagram Stories that Jake and the rest of the Team 10 members spray painted over a mural he had painted with the words, “Get the f–k out of our house.”
But in a YouTube video posted on the next day, Jake quickly defended himself. He explained that he was the one that had made Cole the mural, so when he decided to kick the makeup artist off the team, he felt he had a right to paint over it. He also revealed that although someone did write obscenities over the mural, he covered it up because he thought it was petty.
“I’m over this bulls–t of me giving everything to these people who are f–king at such a small point in their career. I mentor them, I become their friend, I give them hugs when they’re crying,” he added. “I have proven time and time again that I am a good person and that I’ve literally done nothing but help these people. It’s bulls–t. It breaks my heart.”
As for why he kicked out the beauty guru, in a previous video, Jake slammed him for posting inappropriate pictures on social media.
“Not only is Cole representing my brand, but he’s also representing Team 10 and everyone else on the team,” the social media star explained. “We have to be careful about what everyone on the team posts.”
He also called the beauty guru “lazy” and “unproductive,” and claimed that he wasn’t uploading enough content. But on July 21, 2019, Cole finally told his side of the story in a video called “Why I Left Team 10…” He explained that the reason he didn’t record as many videos as they wanted was because they didn’t provide him with the resources that they had promised.
“They constantly stressed about how we would be provided with literally every resource to create any shape or form of content that we possibly could want and get any brand deal we want and get all this money. And the whole three months that I lived there, I didn’t get one brand deal from them. I didn’t make one penny. I did all my emailing and all of my brand work. They didn’t provide me with anything besides telling me I had an editor. I had to find photographers. I had to find brand deals. I had to find videographers. I had to find clothing brands to sponsor me clothes. I literally did everything on my own. The only thing that I was provided with was a room, a really nice house to live in and followers,” he explained. “One thing I noticed from living there is that they constantly told me that they wanted to see me win, they wanted to see me succeed and they were constantly there for me. But would always point out my flaws and things I did wrong. They would tell me to go work on it and come back to them instead of coaching me, guiding me and teaching me lessons to form me into a role model and good person like a normal social media agency would.”
And although Cole said that there was a lot of things about living in the Team 10 house that bothered him, it was when the team went to Vegas for Tana Mongeau‘s 21st birthday that things really got messy. The YouTube star said that he and Team 10 event organizer Arman Izadi “Armani” got into a heated argument after Armani claimed that Cole was saying bad things about him. Cole even accused Armani of verbally abusing him.
“He’s in my ear calling me a f—got, saying all I do is paint my face. Calling me a piece of s—t, saying that I’m trash, dirt, lazy, unproductive, selfish, egotistical,” he continued. “I’m talking every name in the book. To the point where I am bawling my eyes out.”
After that, Cole said he was forced to pack up his things and move out, despite trying to talk things out with Jake and Team 10’s manager, Adam Quinn. After he was kicked out, Cole alleged that the former Team 10 members hacked his Instagram account, sent him threatening text messages and bullied him on social media.
“The environment was very toxic. No one cared about each other. No one supported each other,” he concluded.
