YouTube star Jake Paul 'sued by victim of car horn prank'
From BBC - October 11, 2017

YouTuber Jake Paul is reportedly being sued by a man who claims a prank damaged his hearing and left him in "emotional distress".

In July this year, Jake posted a video on his YouTube channel showing him and his friends driving around Los Angeles.

The 20-year-old social media star beeped an extra loud horn on his car at strangers and filmed their reactions.

But one victim of the stunt says it's ended up damaging his hearing, reports US website TMZ.

It reports the man was leaving a store in West Hollywood when he was targeted by Jake and his friends.

TMZ also says that the man who filed the lawsuit is seen in Jake's video, which has been watched more than 7m times - but it is not clear which person he is.

"I have just had my truck pimped out, it's got this new horn that blasts people's faces off," Jake says in the video.

"Let's scare some people."
