Chloe Bennet Defends Relationship With Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul
Love is a curious thing. There's no exact science to it. From a distance, it can be hard to figure out why two people are smitten with each other. You can never know what attracts one person to another. Sometimes, the heart simply wants what it wants. And for Chloe Bennet, her heart wants Logan Paul. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. actress recently courted a relationship with the controversial YouTube personality, and it has been met with a great deal of confusion and distress for her followers. While her fans are deeply perplexed as to why the young actress would form a romantic relationship with the seemingly immature vlogger (and for some people, that's put it kindly), Bennet went on to her social media account to stress that she has her reasons why. As it turns out, the actress has a lot of affection for Paul's goofy personality, admitting that she considers him fun and charming. Not only that, but she claims Paul makes her a better person, and Bennet believes she also makes Logan Paul stronger.
Well, at least Chloe Bennet has given it some thought. Romantic feelings can be fleeting sometimes, but the television actress seems wholeheartedly committed to her current romance with Logan Paul. And while she will likely get even more criticism for her choice in a partner, at least she's sticking by it. Like I said earlier, sometimes the heart simply wants what it wants. It's hard to fault people's feelings.
For those unattuned to Logan Paul's drama earlier this year, Logan Paul got himself in a steaming pot of hot water in January when he recorded footage of suicide victim's corpse in Japan and posted it on YouTube. He later apologized for the video and took it off his page, but the ire didn't die down, and there were many viewers who wanted Paul kicked off of YouTube altogether, although Susan Wojcicki, YouTube's CEO, said during a conference that she believed Paul shouldn't be kicked off the video site because he didn't do anything to violate his three strikes. Nevertheless, people remained outraged.
Evidently, that incident alone wasn't enough to kill Chloe Bennet's affections. While Logan Paul isn't earning as much ridicule and criticism as he did earlier this year, it's safe to say that people aren't looking to warm up to him anytime soon. Nevertheless, Bennet is staying true to her lover, and she has listed her reasons why she feels benevolent to him. Whether her fans accept their relationship or not is not their concern, it seems, because Bennet made it clear that she is looking to stay true to her boyfriend, Logan Paul.
Meanwhile, Chloe Bennet will soon be making her way to San Diego for Comic-Con, where she will be at the panel for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next Thursday, as well as Entertainment Weekly's Women Who Kick Ass panel. Will we be seeing Logan Paul by her side at Comic-Con this year too? We'll have to wait and see.
