Logan Paul slammed online for 'disrespecting' friend's religious beliefs
| Last updated
Logan Paul has been called out online for failing to respect his friend’s religious beliefs during an episode of his podcast.
On an episode of IMPAULSIVE the YouTuber and friend George Janko became entangled in a heated debate centred around religion and Christianity.
Janko is a devout Christian and has made his stance on religion public many times in the past.
During the debate, George makes note that when it comes to talking about someone's beliefs it’s important to ‘tip-toe’ and be respectful.
To which Logan disagreed.
George said: “I sit at synagogues and talk to rabbis all the time, pick their brains. I sit with Muslim people, they’re some of the most peaceful people.”
Paul then turned the conversation into a competition of ‘whose god is real’.
George responded: “My god is real in my eyes. I don’t believe that Allah is real in my eyes.”
Adding: “But does that mean I have to disrespect their beliefs? No.”

The debate then turned ugly when George recounted a time that Logan told him that he needed a therapist because he believed in Jesus.
The 29-year-old later adds: “I know people that hate me that treat me better about my faith than you, and you’re my best friend.”
Within the debate, Paul states: “I don’t understand why we have to perpetuate a belief which is f***ing silly.”
Later added: “I think it’s a silly practice to engage in and I think it deserves satire.”
George makes note that at times Logan has ‘mocked’ him for his beliefs in front of a group of people.

Absolutely disgusting way to talk about someone religion, especially a friend who you “love”
People online certainly weren’t pleased with the internet star’s actions.
One wrote: “Logan Paul showed his true colours. Absolutely disgusting way to talk about someone's religion, especially a friend who you ‘love’. Shameful.
Whilst a third added: “Logan Paul lost my respect man. Don't you ever disrespect another man's religion. I'm proud that George kept a level head during this conversation. Disgusting behaviour from Logan and he needs to learn from this.”
A fourth said: “I am not religious but I don’t disrespect people who believe in something different. We live in a society that we can believe in what we want but we should all be accepting of our fellow people.”
