Logan Paul's resolution to "go gay" for a month was met with a slew of backlash on social media.

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.

Paul, responding to such a criticism from the LGBTQ media organization GLAAD on Twitter, admitted that he made a "very poor choice of words" in his podcast, and invited the group to discuss the matter on his podcast.

However, many in the comments questioned if Paul was sincere in his apology or, knowing the attention his remarks received, was simply plugging his podcast.

Paul has been under fire for dangerous attention-grabbing before, such as when he posted a video one year ago of a dead body in Aokigahara Forest, a Japanese location where many have taken their lives.

Regardless of intent, many members of the LGBTQ community declared that, no, Paul was not welcome in its fold.
