Logan Paul Returns to YouTube After Controversy: 'Crucify Me, Vilify Me, I'm Not Going Anywhere'

  Logan Paul Returns to YouTube After Controversy: 'Crucify Me, Vilify Me, I'm Not Going Anywhere' Logan Paul has returned to YouTube. The new 12-minute vlog opens with Paul dressed as a bearded man, washed up on shore. “The maverick Logan Paul, showing his face for the first time after the disgraced YouTuber has been spotted across the country — hiding his face from paparazzi and seen swallowing his tears on social media like a little baby,” a narrator describes in the background. “Yo, hold up — disgrace? What you mean disgrace, boy? I took a break,” Paul says as he fights with the narrator. “Besides, I’m still lit as f—. What other YouTuber can take a three-week break and still get a million subscribers?” After the sketch is over, Paul switches gear and films himself at his home addressing a variety of topics, including a $4 million lawsuit he’s facing, his recent skydiving experience and his social media blackout. “Oh my gosh, yo — this feels so weird, vlogging. It’s been so long,” he says. “Real talk, guys, I have so much stuff to say.” “Let’s talk about everything that went down. I’ve been dark, like social media blackout, for a month now,” he says. “It’s so weird going from vlogging literally every single day for like, 460 days to nothing. I just want to clear up some stuff you may have seen.” “I’m sort of immersing myself in this world,” he says. “I’m not going to try to ignore it, I can’t ignore it — so I’m not going to pretend like that didn’t happen.

Expectations weighing heavy on Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston

  Expectations weighing heavy on Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston <p>Andrew Johnston's missed cut in the $1.4 million ISPS Handa World Super 6 Perth is a salutary reminder that the weight of expectation can be a heavy cross to bear.</p>Johnston missing cuts on the European Tour wasn't part of the script, but then golf has a habit of ignoring scripts.

Ray Allen opens up about Celtics breakup in powerful tribute to Paul Pierce . LeBron James says Trae Young's only NBA adjustment will be how much money he'll spend.

Paul Pierce is finally ready to end the feud with Ray Allen . Here's Paul Piece and Ray Allen proving not even a homewrecker named LeBron James can stand in the way of true brotherhood, with the two ex- Celtics officially squashing the beef after a pretty nasty breakup .

Instead, Allen was on the golf course with George Lopez and congratulated the actor-comedian on a hole-in-one with no mention of Pierce. During Monday's The Jump, Pierce said that he wasn't upset that Allen couldn't make it to the game and admitted that the two had worked out their differences.

On Tuesday, Allen expanded on that in an Instagram post, both congratulating Pierce and commenting on his much-maligned Celtics departure.

What we did in 2008 was special! Not only by Boston standards but by professional sports standards. The truth is, without any one of us on that team we would’ve never been able to do the unthinkable. Going from last place in one year to winning a championship is unfathomable. But, we did it! WE did it- Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Tony Allen, P.J. Brown, Sam Cassell, Glen Davis, Eddie House, Kendrick Perkins, Scott Pollard, James Posey, Leon Powe, Gabe Pruitt, Brian Scalabrine, Doc, Danny, everyone at the Celtics Organization, our wives, children, families, the Fans in The City of Boston and yes, me. Over the last few years I have been berated, lambasted and had my name smeared. You may not want to hear this, but I will always be a Celtic. (Fact). I will always cherish the bonds that I shared with all of my teammates and the people in the city of Boston. (Truth). We all gave everything we had. We all won and we all raised the 2008 NBA Championship banner together. (Ubuntu) Paul Pierce is the first guy that welcomed Kevin and me with open arms into his atmosphere from day one and we never looked back. Paul and I have spoken about our time together as teammates- going to battle night after night knowing we could count on one another and we have also talked about my decision to leave during free agency- a choice I made for my family. Despite what you may have heard or read or what is rumored- there is nothing but love. Paul and I are more interested in building bridges than putting up walls. To Paul, number 34, Congratulations on having your number raised up to the rafters. I salute you for your commitment to the city of Boston and to us the 2008 NBA Champions #thetruth
