Logan Paul delivers an impassioned plea
Logan Paul has called his fans out and acknowledged his own privilege in his latest post.
The social media star has shown resounding support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement which has taken the world by storm following last week's death of George Floyd in the US.
Paul has demanded justice for all those who lost their lives at the hands of the police and has also clearly admitted to his own white privilege which enables him to carry on with his stunts and antics for social media with no legal repercussions.
As he said, he faces little blowback simply because he is ' a white kid.'
While fans and followers did have mixed reactions to his speech (some called him out for being ingenuine and for reading from a script) it's certain that Paul did in fact do his research and if anything, his tone of voice proved his genuity.
Man honestly I'm very impressed. I hope he was genuine and meant every word. If so, I def applaud him for using his massive platform this way. This was a really good speech. Script or not!— Sacha (@SachaVibes) June 3, 2020

While Logan has been scoring points on social media for his proactivity, his brother Jake has found himself in the middle of controvery as he has been accused of looting and vandalizing a shopping mall in Arizona.
Jake has since denied these allegations and maintains that the video footage does not prove that he was taking part in the vandalism but he was simply there to capture content.
