Logan Paul apologises after saying he'd "go gay" for a month

Another day, another round of Logan Paul nonsense
Logan Paul has apologised (ish) after joking that he was going to be gay for a month for a laugh.
"It's male-only March. We’re going to attempt to go gay for just one month,” Paul said, on his podcast Impaulsive. The segment revolved around resolutions he was going to make for each month of 2019.
Many took issue with his words, including LGBTQ+ organisation GLAAD, who tweeted simply: "That’s not how it works, @LoganPaul."
It's fair to say that no one was on board.

Dear Logan Paul and any ignorant, hurtful fool,— Luke Waltham (@lukewaltham) January 11, 2019
You can’t “go gay for a month”. Being gay is not a choice.
This is an insult to the LGBTQ+ community.
Stop this nonsense and stop supporting problematic people.
Logan apologised to GLAAD... and tried to use it as a business opportunity
Logan tweeted back to the organisation, saying: "very poor choice of words... my fault. let’s get together and talk about it on my podcast next week?"
GLAAD have so far not responded to his offer, but I wouldn't hold your breath.

Regardless of what he gets up to in March, Logan is set to have a pretty busy November. That's when it's looking like he will once again fight against KSI, in a grand rematch of epic proportions. You can find out more about that bout right here.
