Controversial YouTube star Logan Paul has apologised after
claiming that he wants to “go gay for a month”.

Only a year after the controversial video that he filmed in
Japan’s “suicide forest”, Paul has courted fresh controversy
by announcing his plans to “go gay” on a recent podcast.

Speaking on the Impaulsive series, he said: “We’re vegan
now, and we’re sober. January is sober, vegan January. February
is fatal February.”

After co-host Mike Majlak explained that ‘fatal February’
would involve meat and copious amounts of alcohol, Paul then turned
his attentions to the following month.

“Then March – it’s male-only March. We’re gonna attempt
to go gay for just one month,” he said.

Maljak then responded: “For one month. And then swing… go
back.”

The comments provoked immediate condemnation on social media
from users who explained that being LGBTQ is not a choice.

“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,” wrote Daniel Preda.

Another simply wrote: “Another new year, same Logan
Paul.”

But Paul has now attempted to offer his own apology after his
actions were called out by LGBTQ organisation GLAAD.

“very poor choice of words… my fault. let’s get
together and talk about it on my podcast next week?” Paul
wrote.

The controversy comes only 12 months after the YouTube star
faced condemnation for filming
a man’s dead body in Japan’s Aokighara Forest, a notorious
suicide hotspot.

He later announced
plans to take a break from YouTube
– before returning shortly
afterwards.
