YouTube Star Logan Paul is being heavily criticized after posting his daily vlog In Japan’s “Suicide Forest”. Logan Paul is a world famous YouTuber that has over 15 million subscribers and uploads a daily vlog of all the crazy things he does. In the video, you can see a person hanging from a tree while Logan laughs and plays around. Logan received so much backlash from this video that he had no choice but to take it down. This is the first time that he has had to take down one of his vlogs.
Before you start watching this video, I am warning that it is a little graphic. The video also uses profane langue.
I was a fan of Logan Paul, but after seeing parts of that video I had to unsubscribe. This is a terrible look for Logan Paul who is one of the fastest rising YouTube stars ever. The sad thing is, he has actually gained subscribers and views from that video. Suicide is not an issue to joke about, and he should not have shown a person hanging from a tree when most of his followers are below the age of 13. It almost sounds and looks like Logan Paul is acting through the entire video which is just crazy. This was just an overall stupid move to even think about vloging from a forest where hundreds of people take their own lives every year.
If you are anyone you know is even thinking about taking their own life, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.
