The controversial YouTube star made the ignorant remarks in a Wednesday video for his Impaulsive Podcast, in which he outlined resolutions for the first three months of 2019.
"So it's male-only March," he said, in addition to monthly goals like sobriety and veganism. "We're gonna attempt to go gay for just one month."
Many outraged responses took issue with Paul's language, noting that being gay is not a choice and declaring that it is one feeds into dangerous myths about the LGBTQ community.
\u201cIn 26 states, your employer can fire you for being LGBTQ.\n\nLGBTQ children are as much as 7x more likely than their cisgender, heterosexual peers to die by suicide. \n\nNearly a third of LGBTQ children report being bullied on school grounds.\n\nCool prank, Logan Paul.\u201d

\u201c@Mud2Mugs @LoganPaul he\u2019s not exploring his sexuality. he\u2019s 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.\u201d
\u201cLogan Paul joking about being gay \u201cfor one month\u201d while countless LGBT+ around the world are killed & committing suicide for their sexuality, is disgusting. He continues to be an awful representation of the YouTube community & shows he truly has learned NOTHING over the last year\u201d
