Logan Paul continues to cause controversy.
The YouTuber inspired a wave of outrage after he said on a new podcast that he and his co-host Mike Majlak plan to “go gay” for the month of March.
“We’re going to attempt to go gay for just one month,” Paul said Wednesday on an episode of “Impaulsive.”
Paul billed the stunt as “male-only March” and said it was supposed to follow a January where he and Majlak didn’t drink and went vegan, and a totally opposite February where they indulge in steaks and alcohol.
The 23-year-old Paul’s comments were quickly condemned on social media by many who accused him of being insensitive to the LGBTQ community.
“being gay is not a choice or a trend,” wrote one Twitter user. please just let us live our lives. don’t ‘go gay’ logan paul, go away.”
Another user wrote, “@LoganPaul saying he’s going gay for a month, is what he’s teaching his young and impressionable audience, that being gay is a choice. This will move years of LGBTQ progress back. Shame on you.”
Paul’s podcast remark also didn’t sit well with GLAAD, an organization that supports the LGBTQ community.
“That’s not how it works, @LoganPaul,” reads a tweet shared by the organization on Friday.
Paul then responded to GLAAD, writing, “very poor choice of words… my fault. let’s get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?”
GLAAD has not publicly replied to Paul’s invitation, and a rep for the organization did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The new controversy comes about a year after Paul garnered criticism for filming what appeared to be a dead body in a Japanese forest known for its high suicide rate. He also expresses his shock after seeing the body and giggles toward the end of the video.
