Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is being heavily criticised online after saying that one of his New Year's resolutions was to 'go gay' for one month.

The 23-year-old, who has made a career out of controversy, made the announcement on his 'Impaulsive' podcast on Wednesday.

Speaking to Twitter personality Brother Nature, he began discussing what his and his co-host, Mike Mejlak's goals are for 2019, which began with them being sober and vegan for January.

February is then 'Fatal February' where they have vowed to do the complete opposite and just eat steaks and drink 'big bottles of vodka'.

Brother Nature then asks them if they are going to go back to being vegan and sober in March, to which Paul replies.

[Turning to Mejlak] What is it, male only March?

We're gonna attempt to go gay for just one month.

Mejlak then adds:

For one month, and then swing... and then go back.

They all then briefly snigger at the thought and then go back to talking about the Coachella.

Paul's comments have since dominated Twitter with many people criticising him for his insensitive language and treating sexual identity as a joke, trend or a challenge.

In January last year, Paul shared a video of himself laughing at a dead person in Japan who had committed suicide in a forest.

This, combined with his latest stunt, is further proof that people are starting to grow bored of his attention seeking antics.

Others have highlighted how ignorant his comments are and urged him to do more to support the LGBT+ community and not pull 'pranks' at their expense.

Paul has since attempted to apologise for his comments.

In a tweet to the LGBT+ activist group GLAAD, he said that his choice of words was "very poor" and offered to have one of their representatives on his podcast.
