Actress Chloe Bennet of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fame on ABC is going public about her relationship with shamed actor and You Tuber Logan Paul
Bennet responded to a tweet from a fan asking why she would date such a person. Logan caused an uproar on New Year’s Eve when he posted video from Japan of a suicide victim’s body on his You Tube Channel. The video was quickly removed, but not before generating 6 million views.
Cause he’s kind, creative, funny, vibrantly curious about life, weird as fuck in all the best ways, a big dork, and he’s one of my best friends. It doesn’t make sense to a lot of people, but it doesn’t have too. He’s changed my life for the better and I’ve done the same for him.

That tweet and response has sparked a social media debate over Bennet’s dating choice.
changing surname to a white one, advocating asian culture but is now dating a racist who filmed a dead body in Japan and disrespects their culture. sure, go ahead. at least you’re no longer part of our asian community ??♀️

A smattering of fans, however, were a bit more understanding saying who she dated was nobody’s business.
Because he deserves a second chance and has he ever filmed something as inappropriate as that after the whole controversy? No. He learned his lesson. So FORGIVE AND FORGET. Mind your own business and worry about your own love life!

The debate started after a few hours after Bennet called out OceanUp for posting this tweet.

RE: Chloe Bennet Faces Backlash after Backing Controversial Boyfriend Logan Paul: I saw her speak at the Asian American panel at comic con one year. She didn’t have to go. Good for her. But she reminds me of a reporter at Fox News who said Trump is nice to me. Her boyfriend is nice and funny – to you. Not to the people he mocks.
