Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. YouTuber Logan Paul appeared on Fox Business Monday afternoon, and his responses left the internet wondering what exactly was going on — debating whether it was a stunt or if the vlogger needs media training. The interview with Fox's Liz Claman was intended to discuss the fight for popularity among various social media platforms, including Youtube, Facebook, and a new emerging app, Tik Tok, which ranks as the fourth most downloaded app, Claman reported. Paul, who has nearly 20 million Youtube subscribers, was invited to the news segment for knowing "a thing or two about jumping from platform to platform." Paul's answers deviated to him calling himself the "quickest man on the planet" and explaining that he has pink eye. Stunt or not, the internet simply thought the interview was bizarre.

This was strategic, so not sure what exactly you think he needs training for.

"I'm everywhere, and I'm nowhere. I'm like a ghost." Claman dubbed Paul as a "controversial 24-year-old megastar," citing a previous incident in which the YouTuber filmed a dead body in Japan's "suicide forest," which garnered significant backlash and prompted Paul to take a hiatus from social media following an apology video posted to YouTube, which was viewed over 55 million times. "Liz, I have to stop you right there. You used the word 'controversial,'" Paul said in response to Claman's description of him. "Just so you know, I am an ex-controversial YouTuber. That's no longer me. We kind of graduated."

"Why you have to call me out live like that?" Paul asked with a laugh during the interview, but revealed that he prefers the aforementioned platforms over the latter for monetary reasons, saying that YouTube does a better job at monetizing content creators. Paul also revealed that his expenses surpassed his income for the "first time ever," saying that he's "definitely going downhill from here." "I think it's the beginning of the end," Paul said, adding, "I also have pink eye. It's not contagious." He quickly cut off the Fox Business host to clarify, "No, it is, there's a two-week incubation period," and apologized when Claman jokingly told him not to touch anything on set.

"If I'm being quite honest with you, I'm the fastest YouTuber; I'm the fastest entertainer on the planet," Paul said, citing his athletic ability and potential to win the games. "I could be the quickest man on the planet. … I'm betting 100,000 that I'm the fastest man on the planet." Claman also noted his ability to do the splits, which Paul performs in some of his viral videos, to which Paul said, "Why can I do the splits? That's weird. I'm uncomfortable with myself." Paul mentioned towards the end of the interview that another fight with fellow internet celebrity KSI is expected at the end of the year, following the first match in August 2018. "KSI, I'm gonna beat you badly," Paul said. Logan Paul and his brother Jake Paul recently topped a list of the highest paid YouTube stars. Between June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018, Logan Paul made $14.5 million, according to Forbes. Jake made $21.5 million.SEE ALSO: Logan Paul said he wants to 'rip the head off' the man he was filmed slapping unconscious, who now claims the video was fake Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Here's why phone companies like Verizon and ATT charge more for extra data http://lisman.ipub.us/news/2828776-internet-deeply-confused-youtube-star-logan-paul039s-bizarre Mon, 22 2019 23:56:52 GMT http://lisman.ipub.us/news/2828776-internet-deeply-confused-youtube-star-logan-paul039s-bizarre Louisiana policemen fired over Facebook post suggesting Ocasio-Cortez be shot A Louisiana policeman who suggested on Facebook that high-profile U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needed to be shot was fired on Monday, along with a second officer who "liked" his post. http://lisman.ipub.us/news/2828709-louisiana-policemen-fired-over-facebook-post-suggesting-ocas Mon, 22 2019 23:01:56 GMT http://lisman.ipub.us/news/2828709-louisiana-policemen-fired-over-facebook-post-suggesting-ocas Logan Paul says he#039;s an #039;ex-controversial YouTuber#039; in an interview with Fox Business Logan Paul traded in his Maverick merch for a blazer for an interview with Fox Business, and it's a wild ride.  The 24-year-old YouTuber, infamous for recording and laughing at the body of a suicide victim in a vlog last year, graced Fox Business on Monday.

Paul, who makes about $15 million a year as one of the highest-paid YouTube stars, appeared on Fox Business Network on Monday for an interview about the expanding world of social video sharing. At least that's what it was supposed to be about before Paul launched into shoutouts to his home state of Ohio, bold statements about his income, and insistences that he's some kind of mega-athlete. Before starting the interview, Paul had to correct the record. Host Liz Claman called him a "controversial" figure after posting a video from a so-called Japanese "suicide forest" at the end of 2017, but Paul clarified that he is "ex-controversial" now because he apologized for the video. He then got down to business, affirming that he is "everywhere and nowhere ... like a ghost" when it comes to social media, though he got oddly upset at Claman for "call[ing] me out" over his inactive Facebook account. But things only got more stressful for Paul, as he revealed "my expenses just surpassed my income for the first time ever. " That has Paul "terrified," he said, adding that "I think it's the beginning of the end. I also have pinkeye." Paul then mentioned his time as a high school football star and insisted that it somehow made him "the fastest YouTuber," no, "the fastest entertainer on the planet," no, "the quickest man on the planet."
