Controversial YouTube star Logan Paul is responding to a backlash that ensued last week after saying on his podcast that he's "going gay" for the month in March.

Logan made his comments on his "Impauslive" podcast with cohost Mike Majlak. The two discussed New Year's resolutions, one of which included "going gay" during March.

"It's male-only March. We're going to attempt to go gay for just one month," Paul, 23, said.

Unsurprisingly, a backlash from LGBTQ people ensued and he even sparked outrage from LGBTQ groups like GLAAD.

"That's not how it works," the organization tweeted to the YouTuber.

Paul, who has more than 18 million subscribers on YoTube and over 1.1 million subscribers to his podcast, responded to GLAAD in an effort to apologize.

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




This isn't the first time Paul has made headlines for the wrong reasons. In early 2018, he came under fire for posting a video of what appeared to be a dead body hanging from a tree in Japan's Aokigahara forest, otherwise known as a suicide forest.
