Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul has responded to rumors of him appearing in a leaked gay sex tape. 

On December 21 night, Paul became the No 1 trend on Twitter after a gay porn video went viral because thousands of his fans believed that it was him on the screen. The 24-year-old tweeted to his 5.2 million followers in response to the video, which claimed to feature the YouTube star, going viral wrote on social media, "100k retweets and I'll release the full sex tape."

On Instagram Live, he neither denied nor confirmed if he was in the video. "Twitter right now, aye Twitter - you brazy." He then added a screenshot of the night's Twitter trends, pointed to his name at the top of the list and wrote, "We're back!"

While most of his fans and social media had decided that the clip was fake and that it wasn't him on the screen, Paul took to cracking jokes at the situation. "James charles ur next,” he added.

The famous makeup artist is no stranger to controversy himself, responded, "Sorry bro I only go for straight guys." To which Paul replied, "when click bait turns to d–k bait."

Paul became a famous YouTube personality then quickly became controversial. Since his break up from actress Chloe Bennet in October 2018, he has been single. But Paul has gotten in trouble with the LGBTQ community in the past. He was criticized for passing ignorant statements - joking that he would be going gay for a month wrongly suggesting that homosexuality was a choice. "What is it, male-only March? ... We're gonna attempt to go gay for just one month," he had said. 

LGBTQ organization GLAAD responded on their Twitter, "That's not how it works, Logan Paul."

Just a year ago, YouTube had suspended all advertising on Paul's channels due to his "pattern of behavior". His most notorious controversy of all time is when he posted a video of a dead man who had hanged himself in Aokigahara, Japan.
