Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul released his anticipated Flat Earth documentary on March 20 – but it wasn’t everything that viewers were expecting.

While Paul’s video featured interviews with genuine Flat Earthers, it played out more like a comedic ‘mockumentary,’ and now, the YouTuber is continuing to poke fun at the community.

Paul posted a cheeky Tweet on March 22, that shows a video from the Flat Earth International Conference organizer discussing his experience with the YouTuber’s film crew.

“Another thing that he outright lied about was the fact that he was going to be doing a documentary,” the organizer vehemently stated. “…quite honestly, I was punked. I was duped.”

Paul appeared to find some humor in the organizer’s distaste for his project, captioning the video, “The flat earthers have spoken” – adding the ‘🤭’ emoji for good measure.

The YouTuber likewise teased a “tell all” video about the ‘mockumentary,’ and is taking questions from viewers about the project’s culmination – which he previously described as an “undercover” operation during a joint podcast with YouTube group ‘The Corridor Cast.’

Paul had even teased the possibility of being a Flat Earther himself ahead of the video’s release, with his advertisements for the project appearing to hint at a serious documentary that would take a deep dive into the community’s philosophies.

Popular YouTuber Ethan Klein of H3H3 had also accused Paul of ripping off ideas from Shane Dawson, known in recent years for his highly-acclaimed documentary series covering major internet celebrities and even conspiracy theories.

However, Paul’s video also gained acclaim after its release for pranking audiences with its odd humor, with the likes of the BBC’s Dave Lee and the Washington Post’s Gene Park giving the mockumentary praise via Twitter.

Despite his highly-criticized debacle in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018, the YouTuber continues to find success on the platform, in spite of further controversy.
