Disgraced YouTube star Logan Paul sure isn’t doing himself any favors when it comes to lying low in the face of controversy.
Paul — who infamously posted a video that appeared to show the body of a suicide victim — inspired a whole new slew of critics Thursday when he played the victim card in a comment on Cardi B’s Instagram.
Cardi, 25, took to Instagram Thursday to share a close-up photo of herself last Sunday at the Grammys, where she was nominated for two awards and performed with Bruno Mars.
“They trinna crucify me like they did Christ,” she wrote, referencing a Kanye West lyric from his 2012 track “Don’t Like.”
Paul, 22, was quick to chime in, writing that he related to the rapper’s comment.
“Lawlz u tellin me,” he wrote.
But Paul’s attempt to relate did not go over well with Cardi’s Instagram followers.
“She aint the one that filmed a dead body and put it in a vlog so… Apples and oranges,” one user wrote.
“If she got crucified you would probably film her,” another wrote.
“It’s a shame they give complete idiots a platform to destroy future generations and teach them that ignorance and ultimate narcissism is okay. You, and everyone associated with you, should be ashamed of yourself. Quit acting like a victim,” a third wrote.
Comedians who have gone too far
Paul has remained largely out of the spotlight since sharing the offensive video in early January.
The clip, posted to his popular YouTube channel, was shot in the Japanese forest Aokigahara, which is well known for being the site of many suicides.
He spoke out Tuesday morning on “Good Morning America” in his first TV interview since the incident, and said he had received death threats, which he found ironic.
“It’s been tough because ironically I’m being told to commit suicide myself… Millions of people literally telling me they hate me, to go die in a fire. The most horrible, horrific things,” he said, adding that he did think criticism of him was fair.
“The idea was to shock and show the harsh realities of suicide and get people talking about something that I don’t think people are talking about much, and still that’s the goal today,” Paul continued. “It’s not like I’m a bad guy. I am a good guy who made a bad decision.”
