Logan Paul continues to generate controversy online. According to the New York Daily News, the YouTube star made a comment on Cardi B's Instagram that many saw as tone-deaf.
On Thursday, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper took to Instagram to share a photo of herself from the 2018 Grammys.
"They trinna crucify me like they did Christ," she captioned the photo. The line is a reference to a lyric from Kanye West from his 2012 song "Don't Like." Paul jumped into the post and commented, "Lawlz u tellin me."
It appeared that Paul was lamenting over his current professional situation. As reported, the popular YouTube star has faced backlash after posting a video last month that featured what appeared to be a man who had committed suicide in Japan. Paul, who has a young fan base, posted a video of himself and his friends in the Aokigahara forest, which is known as a place for suicide in Japan. In that video, the group came across a body hanging from a tree, CNN reports. The deceased male’s face was blurred out, the Verge reports.
Other commenters shared their displeasure with Paul's comment. "Does your dumbass brain not get the point of thinking before speaking? I was actually gonna forgive you but after this stupid ass comment, no. Just no," said one. Other added, "go home you little 3 year old shut the f*ck up" and "have you not learned."
Following the video, the YouTuber with over 15 million views has faced continued criticism and his status as a partner and premium recipient of YouTube's advertiser program has been revoked. “I’m sorry. This is a first for me. I’ve never faced criticism like this before, because I’ve never made a mistake like this before,” Paul tweeted in his apology. "I didn’t do it for views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. I intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought, 'if this video saves just ONE life, it'll be worth it,' I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video.”
