He then went on to goad fellow YouTuber James Charles, as he added: ‘James Charles ur next, [sic]’ before later including his brother Jake was next in a now-deleted message.
Not done with the tweets, Logan additionally wrote: ‘When click bait turns to d*ck bait.’

While the internet blew up in debate as to the identification of the men within the video, many cast their suspicions over the clip and doubted it was the truth is the controversial influencer, and his fellow YouTubers joined in on the discussion.
His brother shared a message he’d supposedly sent Logan, with a screenshot displaying Team 10 member Jake encouraging his big bro to have a look at Twitter.
‘Check Twitter, trending,’ his messages read, as he added: ‘apparently u sucked a guys dk. [sic]’
Logan seemingly responded, based on the screenshot: ‘I did?! WHEN?!’, as his brother replied: ‘lolol just a video of some man apparently that looks like u. [sic]’
Tana Mongeau – who married Jake back in July – shared her thoughts on the palaver, saying she ‘wasn’t able to sleep’ after seeing Logan trend on Twitter.
YouTuber Keemstar also waded into the action, as he wrote he noticed the ‘alleged video’ of Logan Paul, and that ‘it’s most likely not him’.
He added: ‘You can’t see his face good enough. Bear in mind there are like 3 hat wearing beard gay movies that folks spam at me every day.
‘None are actually me.’
Keep in mind kids – listen to Keemstar and take something you see online with a grain of salt.
Whereas fans were going wild online as to the alleged existence of such a tape, lots of Logan’s loyal followers were insisting it wasn’t him.
Earlier this yr Logan, who has seemingly been single since splitting with actress Chloe Bennet in October 2018, was forced to defend comments he was ‘going gay for a month’ in a podcast with LGBT rights activist Josh Seefried, implying that his intention to experiment with his sexuality in March was real.
The controversial vlogger hit headlines in January throughout podcast Impaulsive, when the vlogger claimed: ‘March – it’s male-only March. We’re gonna try and go gay for only one month.’
A lot of the LGBT community hit back at Logan for his comments, arguing that he implied that being gay was a choice.
Josh instantly made his thoughts that Logan’s comments have been unacceptable, telling him: ‘You’re a person who sets the tone of what’s acceptable to make a joke of’, particularly to young individuals.
He added: ‘I don’t think it’s acceptable to make that kind of joke.’
The YouTuber then implied his comments were real, by asking: ‘So if I wish to hook up with dudes for a month in March, I can’t do that?’
