"Don't 'go gay for a month". "Sober and vegan", Paul said. January is apparently all about going vegan, but March is where things get interesting for the streamer. His co-host, Mike Majlak said fatal February was up next, implying they would eat large amounts of meat and drink lots of alcohol. "We're gonna go opposite".

One year after the YouTube personality received backlash for posting footage of a dead boy's body after an apparent suicide in Japan, the 23-year-old star is once again getting backlash for his online content. "So day one, steaks, big bottles of Tito's [vodka] and shit, just wilin' out".

Meanwhile, filmmaker Hazel Hayes added: 'Call me when Logan Paul chooses to be a decent human being for a month'.

Paul said: "What is it, male-only March?"

"We're going to attempt to go gay for just one month", Paul stated. And then swing... go back'.

One person tweeted: "He's not exploring his sexuality. he's mocking gay men and using the lgbt community as a publicity stunt for views, and on top of that, is promoting the false belief that being gay is a choice to his young and impressionable audience". In return, Logan Paul was supposed to keep the joke going by assuming the archetypal Vegan impression, but he didn't. "He continues to be an very bad representation of the YouTube community and shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the previous year".

Mocking the American vlogger, lesbian YouTuber Rose Ellen Dix joked: 'Think I might go gay for a month Thoughts'.

The outcry from people on social media has been swift however, defending the LGBTQ+ community from this extremely harmful accusation that being gay is somehow a choice (and not only a choice, but a gag).
