Logan Paul receives Twitter backlash after “ruining” 15 Game Boys
Recently, Logan Paul tried his hands on a resin project. In his DIY project, he used 15 Game Boys and created a table with them. In the 90s, this version of handheld gaming device was the highest-selling handheld model. Despite the popularity, this model was discontinued in 2003. Therefore, it has achieved the status of an antique. After Paul shared his project, people reacted and expressed their anger over it. People all over social media have criticized him and he is receiving backlash.
A few days back, Logan Paul accused Floyd Mayweather of not paying him
Last year, Logan Paul and Floyd Mayweather decided to go head to head in a boxing match. However, the match got delayed until June this year. Prior to the match, Jake Paul and Mayweather had a brawl when Paul took of the boxer’s hat. During the match, Logan Paul tried his best to come to Mayweather’s level. Despite his efforts, he could not sustain the punches. In the end, no winner was declared but Mayweather had the upper hand. Recently, Paul accused the boxer of not paying him his due fee. On Instagram, he shared a photoshopped picture of his opponent and wrote:
“Pay me my money you f***ing cornball of a human.”
Recently, the YouTuber took on a DIY project and made a table from Game Boy
On his Twitter account, Logan Paul shared the snippet from his DIY project. While he assumed that people would appreciate his talent, it backfired. For his project, Logan Paul acquired 15 handheld models of Game Boys by Nintendo. This model has been discontinued since 2003. However, it was a huge deal in the 90s and is still treasured by millennials. For his project, Logan Paul placed 15 Game Boys and put epoxy resin over them which meant that they would not be used after that. With the help of this, he created a table.
Shortly after this, people came at Logan Paul and criticized him
According to people, Logan Paul destroyed a unique thing that is not being made anymore. For this purpose, the YouTuber received backlash on Twitter. One person said:
I’ve been trying to buy a game boy color for years and here you are destroying ones that could be put to use
Meanwhile, another shared a meme and said:
Logan Paul made a table out of Game Boy Colors. where is he i just wanna TALK
Another person said:
Logan Paul knows perfectly well that destroying all those Game Boy Colors to make a table gets people upset and thus engagement and money. Don’t fall for it.
One person shared a gif of a man crying and wrote:
When Logan Paul destroys the only 15 Game Boy Colors ever sold:
On the other hand, one person talked about rich people’s desire for ownership.
maybe this is “too deep” but encasing a gameboy in resin is such an on-the-nose visual analogy for how the rich’s only desire is ownership for ownership’s sake. literally taking something meant to be played and enjoyed an making it unusable so it can be put on display
However, there were some people who thought that criticizing Logan Paul over this is meaningless.
In my opinion, it was a cool project and he did a good job with it. Tell us in the comments what you think about it.
