Logan Paul’s Twitch debut features dicks and a racial slur
There are very few things that bring the internet together like the universal hatred of Logan Paul.
The disgraced YouTuber had his Twitch debut on Sunday and was immediately barraged with explicit images of genitalia during the livestreamed game of Fortnite.
“There are so many dicks,” one of his producers said during the stream.
Paul, who is a 23-year-old who can read, also read a racial slur out loud during the stream when he named donor “Negros4565,” who paid him $100. He also read the username “I_S_Wallow_Cum_77” after that viewer gave him another $100. It’s common for Twitch viewers to troll players and trick them into saying racial slurs or offensive language as players often read donor names. Twitch players make money off donations.
As for the game itself, Paul is not good at Fortnite. At all. He died in a few seconds during his first game and was taken out by a pickaxe in the second. His teammates pulled him through the third game, but he died pretty quickly in the fourth round. As Forbes put it, “he’s decent at building, however, even if he did spend some time firing on a bush from a distance before getting shotgunned.”
Paul also spent the stream with the wrong screen up. Instead of a featured screen of the game, there was a featured screen of Paul repeatedly losing.
Paul originally said that he would modify his stream so that only subscribers would be allowed to comment, to “encourage a healthy chat.”
“I want to have a positive experience and I want us to have fun,” he said.
By facilitating a subscriber-only chat, Paul would also be able to gain revenue from Twitch like he does with YouTube.
Despite the trolls in his chat and on Twitter, Paul racked up 630,000 Twitch subscribers after only one stream. It may be an alternative content platform for him as others slow on traffic — last month, YouTube temporarily suspended his ad revenue after the he posted an offensive video of a man who died by suicide. The company also removed him from their preferred ad platform and canceled the YouTube Red series he was supposed to star in.
According to Polygon, Paul had 200,000 viewers at the peak of his stream. He hasn’t announced plans for another stream, and many Twitch users are hoping he won’t anytime soon.
So Logan Paul is already breaking at least 2 terms of service, reading out the N word in names when he KNOWS what they are saying AND smashing plates carelessly across the room…. Can someone get this man off Twitch already please 🙏🏼

“Shit that baboon pulled” includes tasing a dead rat after his month-long hiatus from vlogging and exploiting a car crash on his channel. When will we be free from his antics?
