A man who went viral last week for lecturing a group of teenage girls on a public beach about their swimsuits — comparing their bikinis to “pornography” — has been fired from his job at a Colorado construction company.
Logan Dorn was caught on camera after he approached the nine teenage girls, whom he did not know, and told them to hide in Fort Collins, Colorado.
‘Be mindful of young eyes. They don’t need to see pornography right in front of them. You’re showing off your stuff,’ he told them.
The video of the moment quickly went viral, accusing Logan of harassing the young women with a misogynistic diatribe – and he simply dug his heels in and admitted that “a justifiable anger” came over him and he won’t apologize for confronting the teenagers.
But now Mighty Hand Construction, where he worked, has announced on Facebook that he has been fired and that his actions do not “reflect our values.”

“Today we learned that one of our employees, Logan Dorn, was accused of assaulting a group of individuals over the weekend in Northern Colorado,” the company wrote on Facebook.
“We launched an investigation this morning which led to the immediate termination of Mr Dorn.
Mighty Hand Construction does not condone Logan’s behavior in the videos, nor does his actions reflect our values as a company. Mighty Hand strives to be a company where everyone is treated with the utmost respect and acceptance, and actions by our employees that go against these values will not be tolerated.”
Logan continues to make no apologies and has since posted several videos in which he insists he was right and destroys the “hate and lies” aimed at him.
“I will continue to stand for Jesus and the gospel,” he wrote. “I will continue to fight for truth, justice, purity, and hold the line.”
He was widely convicted after approaching a teenager named Mia and her eight friends on a public beach.
In a viral TikTok clip, Logan can be heard asking, “Why do you dress like that?”

Whatever: the women are clearly put off by his lecture, in turn they laugh at him and tell him to go away
Not wanting to join in, one of the young women replied, “Please leave us alone. benevolent.’
“That’s a thong and that’s a bra,” he told her.
“Please go away… don’t look at me,” replied one of the women.
“You look around and you’re the only thing that stands out,” he replied.
Logan continued to argue, telling the women that “there is free will in America, there is freedom of speech” – although he didn’t seem to care about their freedom to wear bikinis on a public beach.
“If men of God do not rise, our society will fall because there is no morality,” he said.
The women were clearly startled by his lecture, who in turn laughed at him and told him to leave.
One referred to a Bible verse that reads in full: “And if thine eye cause thee to sin, pluck it out and cast it from thee.”
“If men of God do not rise, our society will fall because there is no morality,” he says.

However, he continued to preach to them while the young women laughed and repeatedly asked him to leave them alone.
“One day you will come face to face with God,” he said.
Finally, after some back and forth, a woman in his company helped him away, but turned to lecture the young women themselves. She insisted that she “don’t judge” the women in bikinis, but wanted them to think about what they wear to the beach.
“It matters what you wear, not because of what he says, but because you have to value yourself,” she says.
The videos quickly went viral, with the first 6.6 million views.
Commentators applauded the young women, who have since posted follow-up comments on his actions.
‘The fragile masculinity, off the charts,’ said Mia (left) in a follow-up video
They pointed out that they were on a public beach and that there were other women wearing similar bikinis – but they were the only all-female group, who they believe were easy targets for men at the time.
They also noted that he didn’t seem at all concerned about a man with a Speedo nearby.
‘We should have thrown sand at him! I’m very sorry. We didn’t think about it,” one of the young women, Maddie, said in response to commentators who suggested they do so.
“The fragile masculinity, off the charts,” Mia added.
Logan posted his own video sharing “his side” of the story, which ultimately amounted to defending the actions in the video as fair.
“My side of the story is, I was at a reservoir or a lake and I was with relatives, of all ages, from my age to college, all the way up to… a two-year-old girl,” he said.
At one point, someone in his family said they wanted to move because there were “middle-aged students showing too much” in the area.

“At that point I just felt a justified anger come over me, and also just a boldness of the Holy Spirit to go and confront these ladies and speak the truth that, hey what you’re wearing isn’t OK for a nine year old boy.” or a six-year-old boy,” he said.
‘When I was introduced to pornography at a young age, it destroyed me and I [had] just a justified rage at the time to defend and protect young eyes,” he continued.
“I was just beginning to speak the truth that hey, what you’re wearing isn’t OK, that you can’t find your worth in your body, that the physical never suffice, that there will come a day when you’ll be face to face with God… you know, things like that.
“I’m not going to apologize, I’m going to stand on the truth, I’m going to stand on the word of God,” he said.
‘Our society is going backwards’ [sic] of morality, pornography and lust is at an all time high,” he added.
Logan has turned off comments on his video, although Mia’s videos have been inundated with support for the young women.
