Dramatic footage has emerged of an ugly incident involving Logan Paul that saw the YouTube star-turned boxer slap a heckler for calling him a "p***y".
Paul and his “Impaulsive” podcast co-host Mike Majlak were chatting to fans outside celebrity hotspot Nightingale in West Hollywood.

The pair were being questioned about rumours of a potential boxing bout between Paul and Mike Tyson, but were seemingly in no mood to give much away.
One man could be heard shouting from the crowd: “Are you a p***y, or what??” before he started to walk off.
Majlak let out a stunned reaction before Paul quickly moved in on the man and slapped the hat off his head.

He then proceeded to push and shove the heckler before Majlak grabbed the man and angrily gestured off him to leave.
“Don’t be an a**hole," Majlak could be heard repeatedly saying to the man as he was was escorted away from the scene by a group of men.
Paul looked infuriated as Majlak threw his arm around the 26-year-old in an effort to calm him down.
The incident comes amid swirling rumours that Paul could be the next opponent of Tyson, who made his triumphant return to the ring against Roy Jones Jr last year.
Tyson only fuelled those rumours recently when he declared "hell yeah" in response to whether he would fight one of the YouTube stars.
Paul earned plenty of respect from the boxing community after going the distance in his last exhibition bout against undefeated boxing great Floyd Mayweather Jr, but Tyson said in a recent interview with Yahoo that he's not concerned about the threat the 26-year-old poses.

Without going as far as confirming a fight with Paul, Tyson noted that "anything is possible," and exploded into laughter at the idea of it being an even battle when asked if he could take on the 26-year-old at age 55.
You can watch the moment at around 7:27 in the video below:
"You're talking to me? About taking on..." Tyson asked as he cut himself off with a hearty chuckle.
"Maybe. I'm an old man, you know? I don't know what I could do now."
If anything, Paul has already done his part to prove there's a market for fighting boxing legends.
His fight with Mayweather Jr. attracted more than 1 million pay-per view purchases to bring in some $US50 million ($A66 million).
While it was a far cry from the record 4.6 million in the Mayweather-Manny Pacquiao matchup in 2015, the figure impressed most boxing aficionados.
"Anything is possible, you know, because by doing this we have a great exponent of charities to give to so the charities win both way," said Tyson, about a possible bout with Paul.
Before the Jones Jr. fight, Tyson told Yahoo Sports he intended to give his $10 million proceeds to charity.
The bout attracted $80 million, according to reports, and received praise for everything from the fight itself to commentary from Snoop Dogg.
