Logan Paul destroyed 15 resin Nintendo Game Boys and Twitter schooled him
Logan Paul likes to be at the center of controversy. He was severely reprimanded for insensitivity and lack of ethics in his videos. Now, the popular social media star is back with another video, and Twitter users aren’t happy about it. Logan can be seen immersing 15 pieces of Nintendo game consoles in epoxy resin. Before we could get over the horror of this act, he covered them in more resin. He then puts all the game boys in a metal pokemon frame. Logan uploaded the video to his Twitter account with the caption “First Epoxy Resin Project…GameBoy Colors and metal Pokémon frame made for a cute little table.”
He posted another tweet writing in the caption that the table also lights up and changes color.
The American vlogger may have found it amusing, but netizens, especially Nintendo fans, don’t seem to share the same view. One user slammed it saying they could have used all the custom shells and button replacements without any electronics. According to the user, destroying the material is a mistake on several levels.
Fucking hell. You could have just used completely custom shells and button replacements without any electronics and done this… But destroying the hardware is just plain wrong on SO many scary levels. I mean the chance of some surviving is not 0%, but neither is it close to 100%.

Another user blasted the vlogger saying he could have used the games as Christmas presents.
I understand it’s your money. And I respect you for taking the time to learn that, but I think giving them as gifts or something, especially at Christmas, might have made some days popular. — MangoGingerbread (@bread_mango) December 27, 2021
The amount of rage and anger people felt can be gauged from this tweet. According to the user, these 15 game boys were his childhood wishes. He found the vlogger’s act disrespectful to these 15 pieces of gaming history.
It’s not plastic, at least to me, it’s 15 childhood wishes, 15 little bits of gaming history meant to be played undisplayed, 15 stories from previous owners…Rendering it unusable is disrespectful to its original point of existence, frivolous just the outer shell — Distropia (@Oshelete) December 29, 2021
A user said that Logan could have used non-functional game boys for his table. He said that now that game boys are no longer produced, what was the need to ruin them.
Damn man… You could have used gameboys that didn’t work and not messed things up! They are no longer produced, why waste them?! Use models that cannot be repaired but look good visually, there are tons of them! What could have been an awesome project just… it hurts to watch now…— Aiden Stone (@Corgionwheels) December 28, 2021
However, some people have adopted an easy-going attitude. This person was not at all embarrassed by the act. He wrote that why people get mad at plastic. According to him, the games are of paramount importance and they have been preserved digitally.
Why do people go crazy for plastic? The games are the most important thing and they are preserved digitally— ChronoRevers (@ChronoRevers) December 29, 2021
