YouTube star Logan Paul apologizes after posting video with suicide victim
03 January, 2018, 02:07
"Go rot in hell". "I didn't do it few views". I've never faced criticism like this before, because I've never made a mistake like this before. In the clip, Paul and his crew claimed to have come across the incident while exploring the Aokigahara forest, known widely as Japan's "Suicide Forest". The region has a notorious reputation as a popular destination for suicides, and as the entourage filmed their adventure, they stumbled upon the body of a man who hanged himself from a tree.
YouTube vlogger Logan Paul reacts after spotting someone who took their own life during a visit to Japan's "suicide forest". I've made a 15 minute TV show EVERY SINGLE DAY for the past 460+ days.
Some Twitter users shared their experiences of losing loved ones to suicide, saying there was no defence for Paul's intrusive video. One may understand that it's easy to get caught up in the moment without fully weighing the possible ramifications.
Though the dead man was not identified and his face was blurred, the footage included close-up shots of his corpse.
"Suicide is not a joke", Paul says while filming the body of the victim. He also ponders whether or not he should ask people to subscribe to his channel - a ubiquitous YouTube sign-off - given the nature of the vlog, before ultimately deciding that it's kosher and asking viewers to join the Logang, Paul's fandom. Depression and mental illness are not a joke.
In the beginning of the video, Paul gives an introduction about how this is his most real vlog ever and how he chose not to monitize the video "for obvious reasons".
'How long he would have had to sit there looking at that footage of that poor person, and how not once did he think "maybe just MAYBE this is really, really wrong..."'. You're mocking. I can't believe how self-praising your "apology" is. You don't deserve the success (views) you have.
Replying directly to Logan's apology, Turner wrote, "You're an idiot".
British journalist and TV personality Piers Morgan called Logan Paul a "heartless little prick". The 22-year-old prankster has removed the video and apologized multiple times as criticism of stunt exploded on social media-with everyone from fellow YouTubers to celebrities like Chrissy Teigen calling the video tasteless and unforgivable. However, it had already received millions of views and been duplicated by other accounts before being taken down.
