YouTube star Logan Paul is under fire once again, this time for saying he would “go gay” for the month of March in a podcast.
On his “Impaulsive” podcast published earlier this week, he and co-host Mike Majlak explained they are currently vegan and sober for the month of January, and that March would be “male-only March.”
“We’re going to attempt to go gay for just one month,” Paul explained.

“Obviously to @LoganPaul being gay is some sort of punchline to a joke,” one Twitter user commented. “Make sure to tell that to youth that kill themselves because they struggle with being gay. Shame on him once again.”
“You don’t ‘go gay,’ it’s not a choice,” wrote another, while a third commented, “I’m disgusted.”
Paul’s representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment from TheWrap.

Paul’s latest stint comes a year after the two-time 2017 Teen Choice Award winner faced backlash after posting a video Sunday titled “We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest” that showed a corpse hanging from a tree in Aokigahara forest near Mt. Fuji. He took down the clip a day later, when it had already garnered at least 6 million views.
Paul’s initial apology for the video sparked a second wave of backlash so furious he had to issue another one days later.

Yet another swing and a miss from @LoganPaul. You can't just 'go gay' for a month for a laugh. And for all the people defending this and saying it's just a joke – even if it is, it's tone-deaf and not funny https://t.co/uYhGpmBsAl
