Over the years, Logan Paul has gotten into several feuds with well-known celebrities.
In October 2022, he was back in the headlines after making some shocking allegations against Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny.
What did Logan Paul say about Bad Bunny?
In October, Paul appeared on the YouTube show The Philip DeFranco Show, where he spoke about his community service in Puerto Rico.
While the interview started out normally, things quickly changed when the YouTuber-turned-boxer started talking about Bad Bunny and making allegations that he abused Puerto Rico’s tax laws.
“It’s hard because I love Bad Bunny. I think he’s a great entertainer, I think he’s a generational talent, but I think it’s hypocritical because Bad Bunny is a Puerto Rican who lives in Puerto Rico and privately benefits from a tax program that he publicly condemns,” he said via Newsweek.
DeFranco then addressed Paul’s comments and asked if the information was true, to which he replied, “I know that.”
Paul then named the alleged program benefiting Bad Bunny “and his manager,” Newsweek notes.
“And I see things like that and it hurts,” Paul continued.
“There are native Puerto Ricans who know about it. So I see this music video that caught me right in the middle, surrounded by context that makes me look like a vulture in Puerto Rico, and again, while I love Bad Bunny, I personally can’t support the hypocritical nature of his exploitation. “
Previously, Paul was accused of exploiting Puerto Rico’s Act 22, which allows global residents to move to United States territory and avoid paying taxes on things like stocks or real estate, Newsweek adds.
At this time, Bad Bunny has not publicly addressed Paul’s allegations.
The US Sun reached out to Bad Bunny representatives for comment, but received no response prior to publication.
The US Sun also reached out to Paul’s rep for comment, but received no response prior to publication.
Who is Bad Bunny?
Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, known professionally as Bad Bunny, is a rapper and singer who was born on March 10, 1994 in Almirante Sur, Puerto Rico.
Arguably best known for his Latin trap and reggaeton music, he first rose to fame in 2016 after releasing his song Diles.
Since then he has released five studio albums and countless singles while collaborating with the likes of J Balvin, Daddy Yankee, Jhay Cortez and Cardi B, among others.
He has also won several awards due to his success, including two Grammy Awards.
Outside of music, Bad Bunny has also dabbled in acting, appearing in popular productions such as Bullet Train, F9: The Fast Saga, and Narcos: Mexico.
When Bad Bunny isn’t in the studio or on set, he often posts about his life on Instagram to over 43 million followers.
What have fans said about Logan Paul’s allegations?
Shortly after Paul’s comments went viral, several fans quickly took to Twitter to defend the beloved rapper.
One user wrote: “Not Logan Paul trying to denounce bad bunny for using the tax program from the country he was born and raised in.
Another added: “Using a real Puerto Rican to distract is crazy lmfao. Bad Bunny is not the one contributing to gentrification in Puerto Rico like Logan Paul is doing.”
A third said: “Want to know how delusional white people are? A white man named Logan Paul accuses Bad Bunny, a Puerto Rican, of exploiting the island. Mind you, Logan was the one who switched to PR to avoid taxes. Probably the biggest Caucasus of the year.”
A fourth continued, “The tax incentives that Bad Bunny benefits from under Act 20 are NOT the same incentives that *vulture* and now liar Logan Paul benefits from under Act 22 (and which are not granted to Puerto Ricans) because they absolutely do *nothing* except drive out Puerto Ricans.”
