Logan Paul Slammed As 'Homophobic' After Joking About 'Going Gay'

Logan Paul Slammed As 'Homophobic' After Joking About 'Going Gay'

Infamous YouTuber Logan Paul has apologised for his "poor choice of words" after telling listeners to his Impulsive podcast that he planned to go gay for the month of March.

This latest scandal follows Paul's highly controversial vlog from early 2018 by almost a year, where the YouTuber filmed the body of a suicide victim in Japan's Aokigahara 'Suicide Forest'.

The conversation, with Kelvin Pena, known as "Brother Nature", started with Paul and his co-host Mike Majlak asking their guest for his resolutions.

For the month of January, Paul says he's going sober and vegan.

"Fatal February", Majlak replied.

Logan Paul is back to causing controversy. "We're going to attempt to go gay for just one month", which in turn, elicits an excited grin, a few grunts, words, but little insight in return. Yep, if you've been waiting patiently for a Logan Paul gay phase, apparently you're in luck.

'It's impossible to be offended by a straight person saying they are going gay for a month.




"For one month. And then swing... go back", Maljak added, with the two bursting into laughter.

Whether Paul is being serious or is trying his hand at comedy, members of the LGBTQ community and allies are not thrilled.

Response to this "Logan Paul gay plan" has been mixed.

'He continues to be an bad representation of the YouTube community & shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the previous year'.

The outcry from people on social media has been swift however, defending the LGBTQ+ community from this extremely harmful accusation that being gay is somehow a choice (and not only a choice, but a gag).

GLAAD also took issue with Paul's comment, writing on Twitter on Friday: "That's not how it works".
