Logan Paul Hits Back After Journalist Publishes Apple TV+ Documentary on YouTube for Free

In a turn of events that’s more twisted than a pretzel at a state fair, Logan Paul found himself in a pickle, and not the fun kind you eat. Picture this: you’re Logan Paul, YouTube sensation turned WWE star, and you’ve just opened up your life for a documentary. You’re expecting it to grace the screens of Apple TV+, but surprise! It pops up on YouTube instead. Not exactly the kind of surprise you want, like finding an extra fry at the bottom of the bag.

For five whole months, Logan let journalist Graham Bensinger peek behind the curtain, showing him the nitty-gritty of his life. They were supposed to be creating a masterpiece for Apple TV+, but instead, Logan got a premiere on the YouTube stage. It’s like prepping for a Broadway debut and ending up in a high school musical (no offense to high school musicals).

During what was supposed to be a chummy interview with TMZ, Logan aired his laundry, and not the clean kind. He accused Bensinger of being ‘manipulative,’ turning their promotion chat into an airing of grievances. Imagine the awkwardness — it’s like showing up at a party and realizing you’re wearing the same outfit as someone else, but a million times worse.

Logan wasn’t just miffed; he was spilling the tea with the force of a Boston Tea Party reenactment. He revealed email exchanges, highlighting promises of an Apple TV+ showcase, only to end up as YouTube fodder. It’s like being promised a gourmet meal and getting served fast food (though, let’s be honest, fast food has its moments).

Despite Bensinger’s attempts to smooth things over, Logan felt betrayed. He had given Bensinger a VIP pass to his life, including precious childhood footage with his brother Jake — the kind of stuff you’d only show your nearest and dearest, or, apparently, a documentary you thought was going to be on Apple TV+.

So there you have it, a tale of expectations vs. reality, Apple TV+ vs. YouTube, and a documentary debut that went from red carpet to… well, no carpet. It’s a stark reminder that in the world of showbiz, the show must go on, but maybe not on the platform you were expecting.
