Youtube star Logan Paul uploaded a video to his channel “Logan Paul Vlogs” that gained international attention, but not for the right reasons.

In a 10 minute video Paul and his friends are exploring Aokigahara, more commonly nicknamed as the suicide forest. Known as “the perfect place to die” the forest has an unfortunate reputation of being one of the most popular places to take ones own life.

Paul and his friends took a camera into the forest to get some content for a video and stumbled across a man who has taken his own life by hanging on a tree. Paul and his friends wandered up to the body, while still filming.

In an attempt to lighten the mood Paul and his friends proceeded to crack jokes and laugh despite the horrifying scene in front of them.

That was only the beginning of the controversy. Millions of internet users were upset that Paul even uploaded the video in the first place. He used the dead body as “clickbait” aka putting the dead body in the title of the youtube video and only blurred out the face of the man. The rest of the body was still visible and some argued that the man was still identifiable.

Paul took the video down minutes later and proceeded to post an apology he wrote on his phone. Critics argued that the apology was self centered and only apologized because he was negatively affected by the video.

Paul justified the video by saying it was meant to raise awareness for suicide prevention; however, critics argued that the video did anything but raise awareness. Furthermore, his apology failed to mention the victim, his family, or suicide prevention.
