He appears to be taking advantage of his contacts in the community to temporarily buy and rename the town for some "Hellish humor".
Daniel is no stranger to Hell, paying Colone $100 back in 2017 to become Mayor for a day as part of a YouTube video.
"The only flags allowed to fly are pride", Daniel announced.
"Gay Hell" is located 15 miles northwest of Ann Arbor with a population of 70, as NBC News notes.

His praise for Amir, who was not initially included in Pakistan's World Cup squad, did not end there. Pakistan have never beaten India in six World Cup matches dating back to 1992.
YouTube star and musician Elijah Daniel says he's the new owner of Hell, Michigan - and he's renamed it.
This isn't the first time Daniel has used Hell - excuse me, GAY Hell - as a statement against Trump.
However, Daniel would not share the price he paid for the keys to the gates of Gay Hell.
Daniel later explained that he named the town Gay Hell because "those are the words to describe my personality". He explained his purchase of the town thus: "I have a young audience who is 16 to 24 who would not be involved in politics if it wasn't in a amusing or meme way".
In an interview with NBC News, though, Daniel said his remark about the flag restriction was actually just a joke. As of this writing, the YouTuber's channel has more than 500,000 subscribers. "I'm just trying to have fun and get my audience politically active". "And I support that. when it comes to the American flagpole at American embassies at capitals across the world, having the one American flag fly, I think, is the right decision". But it was most recently put on the market in 2016 for a whopping $900,000 by John Colone, Hell's unofficial mayor.
