Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 538,413 views on Monday, 7 June 2021 our article of the day is Logan Paul.
Logan Alexander Paul (born April 1, 1995) is an American YouTuber, internet personality, actor, and professional boxer. As well as posting on his own YouTube channel, he has run the Impaulsive podcast since November 2018, which currently has over 2.7 million followers on YouTube. Paul gained a following in 2013, posting sketches on the video-sharing application Vine. He registered his YouTube channel, TheOfficialLoganPaul, on October 18, 2013, where he started posting regularly following the closure of the Vine app. He later created the Logan Paul Vlogs channel on August 29, 2015, which has since become his most subscribed YouTube channel. As of January 2021, the channel has received over 22 million subscribers and 5.8 billion views, ranking as the 58th subscribed in the United States, and placing him among the top 140 subscribed channels on the platform. As an actor, Paul's television and film work includes guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Bizaardvark, and roles in films The Thinning (2016) and The Thinning: New World Order (2018). He has also expanded his content into other avenues; he released his debut single "2016" in 2016, and in 2018, fought British YouTuber and rapper KSI in an amateur white-collar boxing match. The fight ended in a majority draw. In the subsequent rematch, which was a professional bout, Paul lost to KSI by split decision.
Paul has been involved in several controversies, most notably in relation to a trip to Japan in December 2017, during which he visited the Aokigahara "suicide forest", filmed a suicide victim and uploaded the footage to his YouTube channel.
