‘Logan Paul Has Ended The Party’ Trending On Twitter Again As Zayn Malik Joke Sparks Backlash

Logan Paul holds a Prime drink

Logan Paul is facing backlash on Twitter over a certain segment of a podcast episode he did with comedian Andrew Schulz, but he’s not taking the criticism too seriously.

YouTube star Logan Paul is no stranger to being the subject of public outrage, and that’s exactly what’s happening to him now, all over Twitter.

the hashtags ‘#loganpaulisoverparty’ Y ‘#respectzayn’ are taking over the app as users criticize Paul’s older brother while showing their support for singer Zayn Malik.

For those confused about the combination, the issue stems from a June 14 episode of Andrew Schulz’s Flagrant 2 podcast, where the two stars sat down to talk about their lives and current events.

Logan Paul is a YouTuber, budding professional boxer, and businessman who recently launched his own sports drink alongside fellow influencer KSI.

During the interview, the team brought up the recent drama surrounding former 1D star Zayn Malik, who was sentenced to 360 days probation after allegedly hitting the mother of his ex-partner, Gigi Hadid, last year.

Schulz notably called Zayn “the guy who hit Gigi Hadid or whatever,” before correcting his statement with “he doesn’t hit her, he swears at his mom, or whatever.”

“You can’t hit a girl’s mom!” Schulz went on to point out a joke one of his co-hosts made of him: “This guy said, ‘He’s cultural.'”

One Direction fans are now taking to Twitter to express their grievances towards the couple, with many commenters calling the statement “racist”.

Despite the outrage, Logan Paul appears to be taking the situation fairly calmly, even joking about the matter in a tweet saying that his “favorite One Directioner is Charlie Puth.”

This isn’t the first time Paul has faced the ire of One Direction fans in recent months; in fact, Directioners first got the phrase ‘LoganPaulisoverparty’ on Twitter in May, after former band member Liam Payne appeared on an episode of Paul’s IMPAULSIVE podcast.
