Logan Paul is really not bothered about coronavirus after shock joke

Logan Paul has revealed he simply couldn’t care less about coronavirus after his controversial joke about the outbreak.

Chatting to his co-hosts on his podcast Impaulsive, the YouTuber admitted he’s not been taking any precautions to prepare.

‘I know I should be [scared] because there’s cases here in LA, a case just broke out in Cleveland, Ohio, apparently it became inter-species,’ Logan said, referring to the dogs that have now been diagnosed.

‘I know I should be, but for some reason, when I am at a NASCAR event or some party here in LA, not only do I not give a s**t about it, no one gives a s**t about it.’

With the star’s co-host pointing out that people are being advised not to travel to certain places, the 24-year-old added: ‘Okay, yes I’ll take that minor precaution and, at this point in time, I will not go to China, not only because of the coronavirus, but because I’m not allowed – I’m just kidding.’

He went on to say: ‘We all know the coronavirus is seriously affecting a handful of people, at least. Enough to raise a red flag.


‘Are you doing anything at home? Or are you like me and my friends, where maybe we’re just too lazy, or ignorant or sheltered…like I envy the person who is taking extreme precautionary measures and will not get the coronavirus because of it.’

Logan went on to add: ‘Hopefully we can get this under control,’ before helpfully pointing out: ‘It’s not something me and my comrades are interested in contracting.’

However, the YouTuber hasn’t always been so diplomatic about the virus, after he made a controversial joke when the first people were diagnosed.

The star, who recently said he’s tired of ‘walking on eggshells’ on YouTube, posted a photo of himself shirtless, surrounded by Instagram models Katie Bell, Julia Rose, and Daisy Keech, and adult film star Riley Reid.

With all of them donning gas masks, Logan wrote: ‘F**k the corona virus’.

The number of cases in the UK has now jumped to 85, with an increase of 34 in 24 hours.

England’s chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty confirmed it was the biggest day-on-day increase since the Covid-19 strain of coronavirus hit the UK.

Professor Whitty said 29 new patients had recently travelled from countries where coronavirus has spread, but it’s not yet clear where a further three cases contracted the virus.
