YouTube star and professional attention seeker Logan Paul is once again under fire for an idiotic move he has made. One year after filming a dead body in Japan’s suicide forest, Paul is catching heat for some insensitive, homophobic comments made on his podcast.
Paul was discussing how January is “sober vegan January” and how he could change things up in February by only drinking vodka and eating steak. Then, things took a turn.
“We’re vegan now, and we’re sober,” Paul said. “But February we are going to go the opposite. “And then March… it’s male-only March. We’re going to attempt to go gay for one month.”
Those comments did not go over well and prompted a response from producer Daniel Preda and even Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
“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,” Preda wrote.
“Perhaps for the month of March instead of baiting the gay community you can use your massive platform as a voice for those LGBT+ who have no voice and resort to suicide and self-harm. Just a suggestion @LoganPaul.”
Paul has since apologized, but not without trying to find a way he can capitalize on any headlines.
“Very poor choice of words… my fault,” he wrote. “Let’s get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?”

Let’s hope GLAAD doesn’t give Paul the time of day and that, quite frankly, everyone else stops paying attention to this kid who is seeking nothing more than headlines and attention.
