Actor Noah Centineo, of Netflix’s ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ fame, is facing massive backlash for a Tweet supporting Logan Paul - which he has since deleted.
Centineo retweeted Logan Paul’s end of year video on January 15, writing out a message in support of the YouTuber’s journey following his controversial debacle in Japan’s Aokigahara ‘Suicide Forest’ in early 2018.
“Beautiful, man,” Centineo said of the video. “It’s not just about overcoming adversity, it’s about overcoming yourself in the face of adversity. We can all learn a lot from this growth.”
However, Centineo has since deleted the Tweet, after facing serious backlash for the statement across social media.
“Anyways, Noah Centineo is trash for supporting Logan Paul, a man who is racist, homophobic, and laughed at suicide victims while recording for views,” one fan wrote.
“Noah Centineo really out here supporting Logan Paul,” another Tweeted. “I can’t believe I used to stan.”

This backlash against Centineo follows the actor’s statements on Jake Paul in early November of 2018, where he threw some subtle shade toward the YouTuber during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“It depends on the filmmaker," Centineo said of social media affecting actors’ job opportunities. "I don't think Gaspar Noe gives a shit. But did Disney care when they gave Jake Paul a show? Absolutely."
While Logan Paul hit back at the comment during an episode of his ‘imPaulsive’ podcast later that month, the two appear to be on good terms - despite fans’ overwhelming distaste.
