Logan Paul apologises for saying he’ll ‘go gay for a month’

Hubert Boesl dpa- AP  Don't Hate the Geek

And the controversial YouTube vlogger has faced a huge backlash once again for announcing that instead of doing Dry January or Veganuary - he's going to "go gay for a month".

Last January, Logan Paul was forced to apologise after posting a video of himself in Japan's infamous Aokigahara forest - a site that has become a common place for people to commit suicide.

Paul, who is no stranger to controversy, made the freakish resolution on his podcast, ImPaulsive, after suggesting he could try "Fatal February", only drinking vodka and eating steak, following a dry and vegan January. He stated that January would be sober and vegan. They were going to be doing "Fatal February", where they vowed to only eat steaks and drink "big bottles of vodka". "And then March - take a guess", Paul said. "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.

"And then swing ... go back", Majlak added.

Just when you thought Logan Paul was coming to his senses, he finds a new demographic with sensory language.

Paul and Mejlak's comments sparked a massive backlash from social media users.

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

"Logan Paul doesn't deserve fame, or money". He continues to be an bad representation of the YouTube community & shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the a year ago.

American charity Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) tweeted about his comment, saying: "That's not how it works, @LoganPaul".

"Very poor choice of words.my fault. let's get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?" he tweeted.
