Logan Paul slaps a man unconscious with one hit in new video
23 May 2019, 13:23
Logan Paul has now pulled out of the Russian slap competition he was due to be a part of.
Logan Paul has been pretty quiet these past few weeks - what with the James Charles/Tati Westbrook drama being the main thing taking over our news feeds - but we knew it probably wasn’t going to last too long.
Logan has now released a video which shows him slapping a man unconscious. It comes after he announced he was no longer participating in a slap competition in Russia due to a “unforeseen and unfortunate event”, which we can only assume means he's referring to the slap shown in the clip.
In his post explaining that he was no longer taking part in the competition, Logan wrote: “Due to an unforeseen and unfortunate event that took place during practice today, I have decided not to participate in the upcoming slap competition.”
“Based on today’s incident and the aftermath it became clear that I don’t have the desire to participate in an event that can result in serious injury to virtually anyone competing. I have the deepest respect for the sport and athletes involved; however, I feel my decision will preserve the health and wellness of everyone competing.”
“I appreciate you taking the time to include me in the process and will absolutely continue to support the sport and your organisation as a fan. Thank you for your understanding and mutual respect.”

Logan was set to take part in the Russian Slapping Championships - a bizarre competition where components literally take in turns hitting each other until one of them passes out or gives up - against Russia’s current champion Vasiliy ‘Dumpling’ Kamotskiy on 25th May.
He’s recently found himself in a string of other controversies, including having to apologise for announcing he would “go gay” for a month earlier this year.
