AceShowbiz - It's only been a year since Logan Paul made controversy over his infamous "Suicide Forest" video, and it looks like he has yet to learn his lesson. The YouTube personality has landed in hot water after declaring his attempt to "go gay" for a month.
He made the remarks when appearing in the latest episode of his "Impaulsive" podcast with co-host Mike Majlak, revealing their New Year's resolutions with fans. While they are currently going vegan and sober for January, they're planning on going the opposite route for February by eating "big steaks" and drinking "big bottles of Tito's."
It's their challenge in March that has many social media users outraged, as they dubbed the month as "male-only March." Paul added, "We're going to attempt to go gay for just one month." Majlak then chimed in, "For one month. And then swing...go back."
People are not having it, obviously, with many of LGBTQ community members deeming their challenge a mockery of their sexuality. "He's not exploring his sexuality. He's mocking gay men and using the lgbt community as a publicly stunt for views, and on top of that, is promoting the false belief that being gay is a choice to his young and impressionable audience," one snarked.

Another upset Twitter user said, "PLEASE educate him and tell him that you can't just 'turn gay,' it's not a choice nor a phase & him doing this is so disrespectful to everyone in the lgbt community." One other said along with an image of Wendy Williams, "I can't believe logan paul is going to be 'gay for a month' like it's some sort of trend. I'm disgusted."

"Logan Paul sayin he's going to 'go gay for a month' when being gay is not a choice and people are fighting and getting killed everyday for being in the lgbtq community is the most disrespectful thing ever," one individual said, calling Paul "a piece of garbage." The said user added, "It's time he gets cancelled for good."
