YouTube star Logan Paul has admitted his New Year’s Resolution to go gay for a month was a ‘poor choice of words’.
The popular YouTuber revealed on his podcast, Impaulsive Podcast, that he would undergo a challenge every month. Some of the challenges included going sober and vegan.
‘And then March – take a guess. What is it? Male-only March. So it’s male-only March, we’re gonna attempt to go gay for just one month.’ Paul said in the podcast.
After he faced backlash to the plans, Paul took to Twitter to reach out to LBGTI media organization, GLAAD. He invited the group onto his podcast to talk about it.
‘very poor choice of words… my fault. let’s get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?’ he wrote.

He later apologized: ‘I made a huge mistake. I don’t expect to be forgiven, I’m just here to apologize.’
