In the process of shooting, Logan Paul found the body of the man who committed suicide, but did not turn off the camera.
The popular American YouTube blogger Logan Paul has posted a video on the web in which he and his friends are walking around the famous Japanese “suicide forest” of Aokigahar and finding a hanged man. However, instead of stopping the recording, Paul and his crew left the camera turned on. The video was posted on YouTube on December 31, and before the video was removed, it was viewed more than 6 million times.
After the appearance of the video blogger, subscribers criticized him, and some even demanded the removal of his channel, since children were subscribed to him. In addition, users were outraged by Paul’s behavior: he laughed and joked, although at the end of the video he told the subscribers that there was nothing funny in suicide. According to Logan, he wanted to raise “awareness of suicide and its consequences” among his 15 million subscribers.
Logan Paul was also condemned by celebrities. For example, actor Aaron Paul, who played the role of Jesse Pinkman in the series “Breaking Bad,” wrote on Twitter:
How dare you! You disgust me. I can’t believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell.
