Logan Paul, the 22-year-old YouTube star who suffered a tremendous fall from grace after his ignominious “suicide forest” vlog surfaced is now under fire once again. The “Maverick” online entertainer proved that his judgement is as flawed as ever by sliding into rapper and Internet darling Cardi B’s Instagram comments.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper uploaded a picture of herself from the 2018 Grammy Awards with the caption “They trinna crucify me like they did Christ.” After the post dedicated to critics throwing shade on the femcee’s two Grammy nominations was uploaded, the South Bronx rapper was soon uplifted by an outpouring of support from her fans. “You win the fight to fight some more. Hang in there,” wrote one member of the #BardiGang.
True to form, Logan Paul then slid into the comment section of the rapper’s post in attempt to liken his self-imposed exile from the public eye to Cardi B’s battle with negativity.
“lawlz u tellin me,” wrote Paul, likening himself to Jesus Christ.
Shortly after Paul submitted his ill-fated comment, both Cardi B fans and Logan Paul haters flocked to social media to condemn the comparison. Believing Paul’s fall from grace to be justified as he knowingly exploited the suffering of a suicide victim for more views and subscribers, Twitter soon exploded with claims that Paul’s intended comeback was far beyond redemption.
Paul’s comment on Cardi B’s post painting himself as the victim calls into question the validity of his “Be Here Tomorrow” suicide prevention video, produced as the starting point for the vlogger’s “new chapter” of controversy-free content.
Is Logan Paul truly remorseful, or is his recent comment yet another indication of his callous indifference? Does he care about the pain he’s caused, or is he simply seeking to return to the throne of his viral empire?
