Logan Paul Under Fire for Saying He'll 'Go Gay' for a Month

Adjust Comment Print

For the month of January, Paul says he's going sober and vegan. "We're going to attempt to go gay for just one month", Logan said.

While discussing his New Year's resolutions, Paul said: "So our New Year's resolution - we're vegan now, and we're sober?"

Despite outraged calls for Paul's channel to be taken down after he filmed himself and his friends finding a dead body in Japan's Aokihagara "suicide forest", including a petition with thousands of signatures, YouTube merely removed him from its premium ad program and cancelled his role in an upcoming series, leaving the door open to other revenue streams. For February, he and his friends are doing the opposite, calling it "Fatal February", which will involve eating and drinking unhealthily. "For one month, and then swing, and then go back", Majlak added.

It's all part of his New Year's resolution, according to the YouTuber.

He immediately came under criticism on social media, with users saying that his ambitious plans were a publicity stunt.

Paul has since faced ample backlash for the statement, with members across the LGBTQ+ community speaking out on the issue. "Grow up Logan Paul". "He continues to be an bad representation of the YouTube community and shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the a year ago".

Paul replied to GLAAD's tweet Friday, writing, "very poor choice of words... my fault. let's get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?"
