Logan Paul Shocks Youtube Audiences Creating International Outrage

Youtube is back in the spot light with another one of it’s most subscribed to Youtube vloggers putting their fans at risk but this time it is more than hateful speech as was experienced in 2017 with PewDiePie. Starting the new year on a tragic note is 22 year old vlogger and actor Logan Paul from Ohio who filmed, edited and posted the discovery of a deceased mans body hanging in Aokigahara forest, Mount Fuji Japan which is sadly known as suicide forest.

Paul who begun his stunt man career on Vine and has 15 million subscribers on Youtube has since removed the offending video though it remains viral, apologized today on twitter.

Following this an apology video appeared 12 hours later but is this enough? The shock of such a display making it to Youtube has parents reeling for the safety of children that follow his channel while Hollywood actors such as Breaking Bads, Aaron Paul made it very clear on their opinion of the fellow actor.

The “Twitter Jury” is out in full force calling for Pauls removal from Youtube as well as his need to give more consideration to the deceased’s family and become an ambassador for mental health issues and suicide. The impact this is having on the Youtube community has gone so far as to even coax a response from the earlier mentioned PewDiePie.
