Logan Paul Facing a Potential Lawsuit Following YouTube Scandal

The 22-year-old is threatened with a lawsuit by Maverick Apparel, an NYC-based clothing company, if he doesn't stop using the word 'maverick' in his apparel line within a week.

AceShowbiz - Logan Paul is adding legal woes to his growing list of troubles. After receiving a severe backlash for posting a video from Japan's "Suicide Forest" that showed an apparent suicide victim, the 22-year-old YouTube star is now threatened with a lawsuit by New York City-based clothing company Maverick Apparel.

According to a new TMZ report, the company demanded Logan immediately stop using the word "maverick" in his apparel line within seven days. In a letter released on Thursday, January 4, they dismiss Logan as "a vlogger catering to his evident lowest common denominator narcissism and who champions his scrotal injuries as a badge of pride."

Maverick adds they have "noticed a rapid and significant decline in its sales, reputation and goodwill of the Maverick Apparel brand as a direct result of your repulsive, abhorrent and mutton-headed conduct. In choosing to promulgate yourself and your maw-wallop across social media and champion yourself as an object of ridicule, hatred and contempt, you have simultaneously infected the good name of Maverick Apparel."

The company also claims at least $4 million in damages due to Logan's controversial video. Citing his social media presence as "a parade of intolerance," they continue that the vlogger "has become synonymous with racist, anti-Asian and homophobic sentiments, and most recently, a belligerent insensitivity to suicide."

Logan has not responded to the report.

The YouTube star caused online outrage earlier this week after he posted the video which he claimed was "supposed to be a fun vlog." While he said he wanted to show the supernatural aspects of the forest, not the suicides, many deemed the video "sickening" and called the star "disgusting" and a "trash."

The vlogger then released an apology letter via Twitter in which he explained that he "intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention." He then issued a second apology on Tuesday, saying that he had done a "huge mistake." He said, "I've made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgment. I don't expect to be forgiven, I'm simply here to apologize."
