Logan Paul has hit out at critics of Harry Styles over his ‘controversial’ Vogue cover, which sees the former One Direction man wearing a dress in a field.

Styles has always been happy to stretch the boundaries of social norms with his fashion choices, and it’s something that he’s regularly drawn negative reactions for doing.

That said, he elicited even more negative press than usual, after his appearance in a dress on the cover of Vogue, causing many people to question his manliness, and masculinity in general.

One person that’s firmly on Styles’ side of the debate, though, is none other than YouTube sensation Logan Paul, who has hit out at critics of Harry’s following the controversy.

During an episode of Logan’s Impaulsive podcast, the Vogue cover was brought up, and Logan made it clear from the offset what his thoughts were.

“What a f**king G… He don’t give a f**k,” Paul said of the popstar, which attracted some questioning from co-hosts Mike Majlak and George Janko.

During the discussion, Logan questioned George’s statement that it’s “just not manly” for Styles to be wearing a dress, which Paul wasn’t a fan of, saying that he’s “all about challenging social norms.”

He continued: “What is manly to you? Is manly being comfortable in your own skin? And being comfortable with who you are, regardless of what people think about what you’re wearing?”

There were definitely two sides when it came to this debate, and it follows a growing period of social justice conversations that Logan has been having throughout 2020, including with his attendance at Los Angeles protests in the summer. He subsequently condemned his brother Jake for his part in a looting scandal in Scottsdale, Arizona.

It’s clear that Logan feels strongly about the controversy surrounding Harry Styles and his Vogue cover, and is trying to spread a more positive message about freedom of expression and, of course, what manliness really is all about.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
