YouTube Douche Logan Paul Apologized Twice For Filming A Recent Suicide Victim

January 2, 2018 / Posted by:

If a shitstain had a shitstain, that shitstain’s shitstain would be YouTube celebrity vlogger/prankster Logan Paul. If you don’t know who he is, I’d describe him as having the swagger and style of an early aughts Justin Bieber mixed with the wit and cunning of Carrot Top and the glassy eyed, slack jawed vibe of a lobotomized Jeff Spicoli. And because we are a troubled nation, Logan Paul is very, very popular. Or at least he was until his latest stunt, filmed in Japan’s infamous Aokigahara forest which is sometimes referred to as the “suicide forest”, reminded everybody that he’s a fucking asshole.

According to NY Daily News, Logan and his crew decided to take a New Year’s Eve trip to Aokigahara for funsies. While filming there, the world’s shittiest Scooby Gang cosplayers came across the body of a man who had hanged himself in the trees. Rather than call cut and report it to the authorities, Logan decided to make the most of it:

“This is the most real vlog I’ve ever posted on this channel,” Paul said in the video. “I think this definitely marks a moment in YouTube history.”

Paul then proceeded to film closer to the body before apologizing to viewers for what was “supposed to be a fun vlog.”

Here’s a cut (without the dead body) of the since removed video which shows Logan and company’s handling of the situation.

While the NY Daily news says that Logan ended the video by urging his fans to seek help if they were feeling suicidal, his sincerity surely must have been undermined by that ludicrous hat.

Naturally people, especially other content makers, #tooktotwitter with gusto to decry Logan’s insensitivity, asshattery and seeming attempt to profit from somebody’s tragedy.

People also took YouTube to task for allowing the video to remain on the site for over 24 hours.

Logan removed the video from YouTube on Monday and has issued two apologies. Here’s one:

I quite enjoy the look of abject horror in his face. If coming across a corpse in the forest didn’t scare him, the thought of losing all his viewers and sponsors surely has. Hopefully Logan Paul and is crew of enablers will fade into obscurity now and the whole concept of YouTube celebrity will simply become a historic footnote that reads “internet stardom was a popular fad that emerged in the early aughts and peaked in 2018 when people started giving a shit again“.
