Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul Sparks Outrage After Saying He Will ‘Go Gay’ For 1 Month


Logan Paul is facing criticism yet again.

On Wednesday, during an episode of his podcast Impaulsive, the 23-year-old social media star sparked controversy while discussing his New Years resolutions with co-host Mike Majlak.

“January is sober vegan January and then February….” Paul said, while Majlak added, “Is fatal February.”

“The exact opposite,” Paul added.

As for March, “It’s male-only March,” Paul said. “We’re going to attempt to go gay for just one month.”

While Paul and his co-hosts laughed at their attempted humor, viewers and listeners weren’t thrilled about his comment.

“Being gay isn’t a choice, being gay isn’t a phase, being gay shouldn’t be used for a rend and subscribers. Grow up Logan Paul,” one user wrote on Twitter.

Instagram star Daniel Preda wrote, “Logan Paul joking about being gay “for one month” while countless LGBT+ around the world are killed & committing suicide for their sexuality, is disgusting. He continues to be an awful representation of the YouTube community & shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the last year.”

This isn’t the first time Paul has faced backlash.

Paul sparked controversy in January 2018 after he posted a YouTube vlog that showed the body of an alleged suicide victim in Japan.

“I had never had a crisis before, ever,” Paul previously told the Hollywood Reporter of the backlash he faced. Paul – who deleted the video, apologized, and shut down his page in the wake of the controversy – created a seven-minute clip solely dedicated to suicide education and prevention.

“I know I’ve made mistakes. I know I’ve let people down. But what happens when you’re given an opportunity to help make a difference in the world?” he says in the clip. “It’s time to learn from the past as I get better and grow as a human being. I’m here to have a hard conversation as those who are suffering can have easier ones. “

“It’s time to start a new chapter in my life as I continue to educate myself and others on suicide,” he says. “I’m humbled and thankful to say, this is just the beginning.”
