Guy quits $100,000 a year job to work for Logan Paul and then gets rejected
Could Logan Paul have handled it better?
Logan Paul might have delivered his biggest blow yet, by crushing the dreams of a young man who hoped to work for him.
Austin Wallace, a 22-year-old from Ohio, allegedly quit his $100,000 per year job in the hopes of working with the YouTube star turned boxer. But it did not go well.
Wallace ended up in tears in his car after confronting Paul backstage at the Jake Paul vs Tyson Woodley fight over the weekend.
In a video shared to his TikTok account @aj_wallace69 Wallace is visibly upset.
"I'm 22, I do make $100,000 a year and that's cool. I wanna act, I wanna do these things, I'm gonna break down right now," he cries.
"I don't know what to do. I did come up here by myself, I do have family but we're not the closest, and I don't have really close friends. You know there's millions of people trying to do what I wanna do. Just watch the clip."
The TikTok then cuts to a clip of his talk with Paul, which isn't easy to watch, unless you like seeing people's dreams blow up in their face.
"What are you good at?" Paul asks Wallace, to which he essentially concedes, not much.
"Then why would I give you a job?" Paul asks.
@aj_wallace69Well here’s the end result with Jake’s brother Idk what to do at this point.♬ original sound - Austin Wallace
Paul continued: "I can't be a mentor right now.
"I'm a f***-up myself. I need a mentor, you know what I'm saying?
"I didn't have connections or people around me, I had Jake. Do you have a brother? Do you have friends?
"You're a good-looking guy. You have friends, bro. You're f***ing lying.
"Go make content, make stuff with your friends. I'm glad you quit your job, it takes balls to do that, but now you gotta activate.
"I'm not the guy directly. My team is [small]- we're locked."
Paul then continued: "Life isn't about handouts, you've gotta work.
"If you really are serious about it, you should move to LA and just like you approached me, start making connections with every single person in LA.
"I'm serious, that's it. I've always said, if you can talk to someone, you can make it in LA."
The video is painful to watch, mostly because Paul himself is relatively self-made so has some special knowledge in 'making it'.
Though, Paul did rise to fame in an era that wasn't saturated with every person and their granny trying to go viral.
Hopefully, Wallace can get his job back, or at least use that dollar to move to LA.
