Even the flat-Earthers want nothing to do with Logan Paul
Logan Paul’s latest stunt seems to have isolated him from yet another group.
Just a week ago the YouTube star made a random appearance at the at the Flat Earth Convention in Denver. In a speech to hundreds of conference attendees, Paul said he too thought the Earth was flat. But even after this endorsement, some believers really want nothing to do with the 29-year-old.
‘This announcement came as a surprise to most, given a complete lack of Logan’s prior interest in the subject, and the nature of the content he usually produces,” the Flat Earth Society wrote on Twitter.
This announcement came as a surprise to most, given a complete lack of Logan's prior interest in the subject, and the nature of the content he usually produces. Understandably, this has raised a number of questions from the general public, and we have been approached to comment.

The Flat Earth Society is actually separate from the group that put on the Denver conference. The groups actually have some conflicting views on the planet.
Both believe the Earth is flat (wrong).
But the conference organizers believe it is covered by a dome (also wrong) while The Flat Earth Society doesn’t (still wrong).
And what does Paul believe? It’s unclear.
During the speech, he told the crowd, “I think I’m coming out of the flat Earth closet.” This sentiment has been criticized as disingenuous.
For starters, look at the source.
He arrived at the conference with a full camera crew. Paul is known for doing stunts to get views, including earlier this year when he posted a YouTube video inside the Japanese “Suicide Forest,” which showed a dead body.
Also, he couldn’t keep a straight face or even explain why he believed the Earth is flat when asked during an interview.
‘”Well, if you just look you can see the Earth is flat,” he told Daily Beast reporter Kelly Weill, bursting into laughter.
She later wrote, “I can say this with confidence: Logan Paul does not believe the Earth is flat.”
If the Flat Earth Society needs a spokesperson, there are several good celebrity candidates who back their claims.
