One of the Top most subscribed Youtubers by the name of Logan Paul filmed a dead Japanese suicide victim in one of his Youtube videos. Just another case of a white boy up to no good. Logan Alexandar Paul is his real name.
He is actually a professional actor. He has appearances in Law & Order Special Victims Unit, Stitchers and Weird Lones television shows. This white clown is only 22 years old.
He made a Youtube video from Suicide Forest in Japan. Apparently Suicide Forest is a real forest in Japan where Japanese people go to commit suicide. He filmed approximately a fifteen minute video documenting a suicide victim that was hanging from a tree.
He eventually removed this video after perhaps human pressure. However, he obviously violated Youtube's community guidelines policy. Youtube claims that they do NOT allow real deaths on their platform.
Youtube also has an artificial intelligence system that can detect "inappropriate" content. I do not know if this video would have remained on Youtube, if Logan had not pulled this video. Aokigahara is the Japanese name of this Suicide Forest, which is near Mount Fuji.
Logan filmed this dead corpse with three associates to get their reactions along with his, of seeing a dead person. Supposedly, he blocked out this mans face in his video. He uploaded this video on December 31, 2017.
Less than a day later he pulled this video. Some people that watched this video were appalled at how cold, callous, and insensitive his reaction was. Also, some people were irate at just the fact he would make this type of video and upload it to his Youtube channel.
According to website Social Blade this clown is 51st in subscribers and 279th in video views rank on the entire Youtube platform. Allegedly, this white boy made jokes about this suicide and laughed about it. However, I was not able to watch the original video.
I did however watch a 15:09 reupload version of his video on a different Youtube channel. Logan claimed that it was not clickbait and that he did not monetize this particular video. This white clown released what I would consider a lame apology.
Within seconds he actually did make a joke after seeing this dead japanese man hanging from a tree. He even said "this was gonna be a joke" after he said "What you never stand next to a dead guy?" to one of his associates. He immediately started smiling and laughing.
Another white girl traveling with him started laughing and smiling after this joke.
"Let's start with this-I'm sorry. This is a first for me. I've never faced criticism like this before, because I've never made a mistake like this before.
I'm surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I'm still a human being. I can be wrong. I didn't do it for views. I get views.
I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the Internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. That's never the intention. I intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention...I'm often reminded of how big of a reach I truly have and with great power comes great responsibility.
For the first time in my life I'm regretful to say I handled that power incorrectly. It won't happen again."
