International Women’s Day is coming up on Sunday, March 8 — and YouTube star Logan Paul has an interesting way of honoring the holiday, which he shared in a chaotic vlog two days prior.

Logan Paul is known for the ridiculous hijinks he pulls during his videos, which have historically included such stunts as jumping into a canal in Rome and, more recently, piercing his nipple after losing a bet.

Now, the social media celebrity has taken his shenanigans to the next level by honoring International Women’s Day in one of the most ridiculous ways possible.

YouTube star Logan Paul has brought back his well-beloved vlogs – and now, they’re more insane than ever before.

Rather than sending his mother a nice card or buying coffee for his female assistant, Paul opted to experience the grueling pain of childbirth first-hand — or, rather, through a series of simulator shock pads.

Such labour simulators have become quite the buzz in the online world, simulating the pain and sensation of contractions (although experts claim that these devices do not fully replicate the real deal).

Logan Paul used labor simulation shock pads to experience the feeling of childbirth for himself – and he wasn’t prepared for how excruciating the ordeal would be.

“Ladies, we love you, we know you go through a lot,” Paul explained before enacting his plan. “So, we have this device here that is supposed to simulate contractions during labor. Now, I’ve never been pregnant, but I imagine it feels like this.”

The vlog then cut to footage of the YouTuber crying out in pain with the shock pads attached to his abdomen, surrounded by his group of friends jokingly supporting him through the experience and even giving him breathing advice.

“What the f**k?” Paul screamed in disbelief. “No way! There is no way! That is the most excruciating pain!”

Of course, “the Maverick” wasn’t the only one to test out the technology; he also pinned the pads on housemate and fellow content creator Evan “Dwarf Mamba” Eckenrode, who took the pain like a champ.

While this certainly isn’t the most conventional method of celebrating International Women’s Day, Paul definitely brought attention to the holiday in his own special way — and considering the fast-paced content of his new videos, there’s no telling what the internet star will pull off next.


Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
