Controversial YouTuber/actor/internet sensation Logan Paul who has an impressive 18.8 million subscribers on YouTube, 15.9 million followers and counting followers on Instagram is all set to prove that the earth is flat. How? By visiting Antarctica!
Who Is Logan Paul
For those who don’t know who Logan Paul is, here’s a quick summary.
Logan Paul got his fame through former internet video service Vine where he used to upload his videos. After Vine shut down he moved on to YouTube full time.
Not Just An Internet Sensation
Logan Paul has landed many roles in popular television series such as Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, The Thinning and many other shows. Apart from tv roles, this controversial youtuber has also dabbled in music as well.
Why The Tag “Controversial YouTuber“?
Logan Paul is not your typical youtuber/role model. He’s landed himself into a number of controversies. The most notable one was when he was filming for his youtube video in the Aokigahara forest in Japan. During his time there, he discovered the body of a suicide victim who he carelessly included in his vlog. He was slammed by the internet for using the suicide victim for clickbait on his youtube video.
These Days He’s Focusing On Conspiracy Theories. Most Notably, The Flat Earth Conspiracy
Yes, that’s right. To maintain his youtube relevance, Logan Paul has decided to dive in head first into the popular Flat Earth Conspiracy Theory with his documentary The Flat Earth: To The Edge And Back. In this youtube series, Paul explores the flat earth theory in detail.
So What’s Wrong With This
For starters, he has a huge fan base of young impressionable teens who could get sucked into this back hole and become Flat Earthers because of the controversial YouTuber/role model Jake. He’s exposing his 18.8 million youtube subscribers to this baseless theory which has been spreading online these past few years like a cult.
Paul has been quoted saying-
“I am that guy that will make it to the edge.
If I’m going to put my name out there (as a Flat Earth supporter), I want to know the facts.
Some of the best scientists can’t explain gravity; Neil Degrasse Tyson, Bill Nye, in the end, do they even know?
I want to explore for myself and keep an open mind. There is a stigma of being a flat-Earther and if I’m going to do it I want to know the facts.”
Let’s hope he goes to Antarctica and finds the proof that earth is actually round which hopefuly puts the flat earth theory to rest for good.
