Is Logan Paul gay? 

Logan Paul is the fourth celebrity in nearly as many days to be a part of the Great Pre-Christmas Celebrity Sex Tape Leak. (DaBaby, Steph Curry, and A$AP Rocky are the other three.)

This alleged Logan Paul sex tape leak, however, not only has come from the "victim" himself, but actually involves controversial YouTube makeup artist James Charles, as well. So what's the deal behind this latest sex tape leak — and the rumors that Logan Paul is gay?

Here's what we know about the latest Logan Paul sex tape rumors. 

1. Is Logan Paul gay? The rumors started on social media. 

When word of a rumored Logan Paul sex tape started circulating, the rumors began on social media. Paul took to his Instagram stories on December 21, 2019, to address the ever-growing (ha!) rumors that such a tape existed.

In the stories, fans can see him reacting to him becoming a Twitter trending topic, specifically about this rumored sex tape, and told his fans that they were "brazen" for making these accusations. 

He then took to Twitter and said that he would release the full sex tape if he got more than 100,000 retweets. 

2. James Charles got thrown into the Logan Paul sex tape mix. 

In a follow-up tweet, Paul said that popular YouTube makeup artist James Charles would be "next" on the list of celebrity sex tape leaks. Charles, who wasn't tagged in the tweet, responded that he "only goes for straight guys," and that's what prompted the speculation that Logan Paul was gay. (It didn't help that he followed this exchange up with an Instagram post featuring him shopping for phallic-looking vegetables.)

3. Paul has previously sparked controversy for saying that he'd "go gay for a month." 

In January 2019, Paul sparked major controversy when he said that he would "go gay for a month" before "swinging back." This firestorm of controversy included accusations that he was "homophobic," especially since he made these comments shortly after he came under major fire for posting a video that seemed to be making fun of Japanese suicide victims, which has since been deleted.

4. He later apologized — sort of — for the controversial comments. 

When he received the considerable backlash for the comments, Paul took to his Twitter and apologized (in a way) for his controversial comments. He then invited GLAAD to come on his podcast to "talk about it," but GLAAD never publicly responded to this invitation and, to date, they haven't accepted the invitation to be on his podcast. 

5. Paul frequently comes under fire for being attention-seeking. 

Media critics have often brought Logan Paul — and his brother, Jake — under fire for being little more than embarrassing attention-seekers, and blame them for the devolution of YouTube culture.

"Just as Twitter has shown — in its descent from a forum for amusing one-liners to a hellish bog of harassment and Nazism — when left nearly entirely to its own devices, the central spirit of the Internet hive mind, its great howling id, tends toward darkness," wrote one such critic

6. This could all be yet another attention-grabbing ploy. 

Based on everything we've seen so far, Logan Paul is just looking for attention, presumably, so he can get more clicks — and views — on his YouTube videos. It stands to reason that this latest speculation about his sexuality is more attention-seeking on his part.
