A social-media star who makes controversial TikToks about Disney World says he’s been permanently banned from the theme park after trespassing on the premises.
Jason Jeter, who is best known online as Jete and @showmelovejete, said in a TikTok video on Monday that Disney security began circling his car while he was parked outside the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, where he said he was visiting to get food.
Jeter, who claims to be a former employee of the theme park, said he was fired from his job in March after posting TikTok videos of himself drinking from decorative fountains and entering a closed Disney wedding venue. Insider has been unable to confirm Jeter’s employment at the park; Jeter and representatives for Disney World did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment on this story, respectively.
“The worst happened,” Jeter said in his video from Monday. “As soon as I get out of the car, Orange County Police Department pulls up. ‘Hi Jason Jeter, we have a trespass warning for you from Disney. You’re no longer allowed on property.'” Orange County Police Department did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
According to Jeter’s video, he was then approached by four Disney employees who explained why he was being banned. He said in the video that one was a security guard, two were in suits, and another was a Disney investigator.
“Then they’re like, ‘Hey also,’ just to add insult to injury, ‘It’s a lifetime ban,'” Jeter — who has nearly 1 million TikTok followers — continued. “I can never go back to Disney — ever.”
The TikToker then showed a video of a car following him as he left the resort. According to Jeter’s video, it was Disney security ensuring that he “really left.”
Jeter didn’t say in his video what area of Disney property he apparently trespassed.
“I did not know they just leave the doors open like this,” Jeter said before showing himself entering the building. “Why would you leave this wide open Disney? For me? Thanks. Appreciate it.”
The location is sometimes left open for parkgoers to visit, but it’s recommended that you always check with a Disney employee for a tour before entering, as the site is strictly closed during private ceremonies and setup times.
Other controversial videos from the TikToker — which Jeter claims got him fired from his job at Disney World — show him at the Disney Springs shopping center, where footage showed him scooping water out of five decorative fountains, drinking it, spitting it out, and saying it tasted bad.
In a TikTok posted on March 18, Jeter said his manager received an email from Walt Disney Company executives who didn’t “appreciate” the videos Jeter had posted, and told him that he would “no longer be allowed backstage.” Jeter added in the video that he wished the company would have asked him to delete the videos rather than fire him, but that “it is what it is.”
