Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul has given a response to the backlash surrounding his 2019 New Year’s resolution – which included “going gay” for a month.

Paul has since responded to the widespread criticism resulting from his plan in a Tweet on January 11, claiming that his statement was a “poor choice of words.”

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

Paul explained his New Year’s resolution during an episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast on January 9, where he revealed that his goals go into effect on a month-by-month basis. Both Paul and his co-host, Mike ‘Hey Big Mike’ Majlak, are currently tackling a vegan and alcohol-free diet for all of January – but their schedule took a controversial turn around March.

“So, it’s ‘Male Only March,’” Paul stated. “We’re gonna attempt to go gay for just one month.”

Paul has since faced ample backlash for the statement, with members across the LGBTQ+ community speaking out on the issue.

“Logan Paul joking about being gay ‘for one month’ while countless LGBTQ+ around the world are killed and committing suicide for their sexuality is disgusting,” YouTuber and Instagram star Daniel Preda said of the debacle. “He continues to be an awful representation of the YouTube community and shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the last year.”

This latest scandal follows Paul’s highly controversial vlog from early 2018 by nearly a year, where the YouTuber filmed the body of a suicide victim in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest.’

Abby consistently challenges the boundaries of how far makeup can go in altering someone’s appearance, and if you thought she couldn’t turn into a cartoon, you thought wrong.

In her latest project, and potentially in the spirit of spooky season, Abby covered her entire face in blue and drew on a giant smile with terrifying teeth. She completed the look with a bright orange wig and a blue zip-up jacket.

In the Rick & Morty universe, Mr. Meeseeks is a creature that appears throughout the seasons. They are created to serve a singular purpose and will go to any length to fulfill that. When they do, they expire and vanish into the air. While they don’t sound so scary, fans of the show will know just how creepy and disturbing the creatures can be.

She captioned her video, “This is probably my scariest look this Halloween I’m sorry” and added “cause y’all needed some more nightmare fuel,” eventually admitting in a third and final TikTok that the look is “a regret.”
