LOGAN PAUL DEFENDS VIRAL GAME BOY PROJECT AMID “RIDICULOUS” BACKLASH

WHAT HAPPENED?

Logan Paul spent three months and $1000 on a Game Boy Color project to commemorate his youth and love for Pokemon.

Instead of his work receiving love from fans though, he was met with backlash on social media for ‘ruining’ copies of the iconic handheld console.

However, Logan hasn’t taken the controversy lying down. He addressed the “ridiculous” backlash on his Impaulsive podcast.

Throughout quarantine and training for Mayweather I had some free time and I wanted to do something relaxing. I took up art resin, epoxy.

I got into it, took on a couple of little projects, got better and better, and I decided to undergo a Gameboy project where I took Gameboy Colors ⁠— which I love, I’ve been addicted to them my whole life ⁠— so I thought it’d be cool to make a table with some of my favorite things I have.

There was a sub-set of retro gamers who were extremely unhappy that I caked 15 Gameboys that cost me about $1000 in resin because they felt like I was wasting the Gameboys and disrespecting the nostalgia.

I made something I thought was f**king cool, yet how can I still be making mistakes? This is a simulation for sure, because this is the most ridiculous backlash we’ve seen in our lives.

Regardless of what happens online, Logan’s epoxy Game Boy Color tabletop now sits proudly in his house, and the star is going to keep it that way.
