Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is set to host an upcoming episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast with pro-gun campaigner Kaitlin Bennett - but one celeb isn’t too pleased with this pairing.
Model and author Chrissy Teigen called out the duo in a scathing tweet on February 12, as a response to the episode’s announcement.
“I’ve just gotten word that the internet does, in fact, not care,” Teigen wrote.

Logan Paul replied to Teigen’s comment in kind, simply writing, “Big facts.”
Bennett went on to clap back at the model, retweeting her tweet with the caption, “I've just gotten word that you do care, since you took the time to respond to me.”

This is far from the first time Logan Paul’s podcast has stirred up controversy; the YouTuber fell in hot water due to his comments on the LGBT community during an episode in early January, where he claimed he would be “going gay” for the month of March as part of his New Year’s resolution.
Paul was likewise told by his publicist to stop featuring adult film stars on the show, likely hearkening back to his episode with porn actress Riley Reid.
Despite his publicist’s warnings, Paul has since invited controversial social media star “the slut whisperer” onto the show, quickly followed by Bennett, who gained fame after posing with an AR-10 on campus to protest her university’s gun laws.
Paul is no stranger to scandal, either; the YouTuber went viral for his divisive vlog in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018, which earned him international backlash that continues to follow him to this day - despite his relative success on YouTube.
