Logan Paul announced plans to "go gay" for a month and people are not happy about it
Logan Paul, the video blogger who mocked a Japanese suicide victim and tased two dead rats on the balcony of his mansion, is back in the news. The 23-year-old recently started a podcast, because, you know, he's just got so much to say, you guys. Like, "What up, Lo-gang!" and "Make sure to smash that like button!"
Paul's podcast is called Impaulsive, although a more appropriate title would be Repaulsive, Appauling or Paul I Want For Christmas Is This Guy To Go Away. In the latest episode, he interviews "internet sensation" Brother Nature. At around the 4:10 mark, Paul discusses his plans for 2019, which include some striking lifestyle choices.
"So our New Year's resolution ... we're vegan now, and we're sober?" said Paul, making a disgusted face. Co-host Mike "Hey Big Mike" Majlak added, "Just for the month." "January is sober vegan January," Paul continued. "February is ..." "Fatal February," Majlak interjected. "We're gonna go opposite. So day one, steaks, big bottles of Tito's [vodka] and shit, just wilin' out."
Regarding March, Brother Nature asked, "So you're gonna be vegan and sober again?" "What is it, male only March?" Paul asked. "We're gonna attempt to go gay for just one month." "For one month, and then swing ... and then go back," said Majlak. "That's crazy," remarks Brother Nature. Paul then starts laughing.
It's not clear from the video if he's joking or what "going gay" means. Does it mean Paul and Majlak are going to have sex with men for the month? Or does it mean they're going to embrace gay culture by doing stereotypical gay behavior? Don't worry, LGBTQ community, I'm sure the Japanese suicide victim-mocking guy will handle this subject with the utmost care.
On Twitter, several people were disgusted that Logan Paul treated homosexuality like a choice, phase and trend. Others yawned, noting he acted like an insensitive idiot in 2018 too. And some people pounded their fists on their keyboards, wondering how this monstrous "disgraced" YouTuber could retain his career after a shocking scandal.
Well, it's not complicated: Paul might be "cancelled" on Twitter, but he's thriving on YouTube, with a loyal fanbase of nearly 19 million subscribers. After the rat-tasing incident, YouTube pulled his advertising, but that advertising has been reinstated. According to a recent profile in The Hollywood Reporter, Paul lives in a "9,000-square-foot bachelor's paradise he purchased slightly more than a year ago for $6.5 million." Must be nice!
When asked about getting "cancelled" by the internet, Paul told the reporter, "Good luck trying to cancel me... It's so easy for anyone to be like, 'Logan Paul just ended his career, he's done.' But the only person who will ever decide whether that's true is me. Like, if I sleep for the rest of my life, maybe. But, like, dog — I love this shit. This creating? It's my passion."
