Logan Paul offended the LGBTQ community when he casually announced that he is going to "go gay" for one month!

Despite outraged calls for Paul's channel to be taken down after he filmed himself and his friends finding a dead body in Japan's Aokihagara "suicide forest", including a petition with thousands of signatures, YouTube merely removed him from its premium ad program and cancelled his role in an upcoming series, leaving the door open to other revenue streams.

Paul caught hate after he revealed during his Impaulsive podcast Wednesday that he and co-host Mike Majlak have a freaky resolution for the month of March, as first reported by E!

"January is sober vegan January", Paul adds.

"Is fatal February", Majlak replied, explaining that he and Paul would be consuming steaks and drinking alcohol.

Paul said: "What is it, male-only March? We're gonna attempt to go gay for just one month", he said, before Majlak said that they'd "swing ... go back" in April.

One year after his huge Suicide Forest scandal that almost ended his career for good, Logan is once again infuriating people online.

His remarks prompted a backlash on social media, with many interpreting his words as offensive to homosexual people. "Don't 'go gay for a month".

"Being gay isn't a choice, being gay isn't a phase, being gay shouldn't be used for a trend and subscribers".
