YouTuber Logan Paul Under Fire For Filming Dead Body

This is the most real vlog I've ever posted to this channel.

"I have made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgement, and I don't expect to be forgiven".

Laughing, Paul continues, "It was gonna be a joke".

He seems aware that the site is sometimes chosen for suicides, but is surprised to come across what appears to be a body hanging from a tree. He kept saying how he could see how the hands were all purple. The video shows several close-ups of the victim's body, though the victim's face is blurred.

Paul claimed in the video he would not be making money off the content. Critics, who have also gone online, say what was offensive was Paul's giggling and joking about the body. "We came here with the intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest".

Paul replies: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?"

His footage, titled, "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest", was viewed more than 1 million times and described by Paul as "the most real vlog I've ever posted to this channel". "Stay strong, whatever it is you're going through".

YouTube celebrity Logan Paul put out a disturbing video over the weekend in which he filmed himself with a corpse in Japan's infamous "suicide forest".

@LoganPaul You're an idiot. Some have even praised him for supposedly raising awareness about the dangers of suicide. You don't deserve the success (views) you have. "I pray to God you never have to experience anything like that man did".

- Sophie Turner (@SophieT) January 2, 2018How dare you! I'm surrounded by good people and believe I can make good decisions, but I'm still a human being. "Hopefully this latest video woke them up". You are pure trash.

Suicide is not, and never will be a joking matter - something that should have been obvious to Paul. Go rot in hell. "He edited this and had plenty of time to change his mind about uploading it".

Paul rose to fame on YouTube with his viral Vine videos, which used juvenile and physical humor. Each one of his daily videos routinely gets more than 5 million views.

On Monday, Paul removed the video and posted an apology on Twitter, in which he wrote that he's "never faced criticism like this before, because I've never made a mistake like this before". I meant to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought 'if this video saves just ONE life, it'll be worth it, ' I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video.

"It's easy to get caught up in the moment without fully weighing the possible ramifications", he said in the statement.

Nate Garner, another online personality, tweeted, "if you really care logan paul [sic] then donate your 2018 youtube [sic] revenue to suicide prevention charities, [the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention] is a great one".

He's not sorry about his insensitivity. Good or bad, publicity is still publicity and it's embarrassing to work for a website where they're the biggest stars.
