Popular American videoblogger Logan Paul apologized for the video about visiting the “forest of suicides” in Japan. He also removed a video from his channel called “We Found a Dead Body in a Japanese Suicide Forest” 24 hours after publication.

According to Paul, he wanted to raise “awareness of suicide and its consequences” among its 15 million subscribers.

On January 1, Paul posted the third part of his video blog about traveling in Japan. In the video, he and his friends walked into the forest of Aokigahara, which is known for its popularity among suicides – from 50 to 100 bodies are found there every year.

As noted by The Verge, in a remote video, Paul said that “no one has ever shot this forest for YouTube.” In the middle of the video, the video blogger allegedly stumbled upon the human body, which was covered with squares, since scenes of cruelty are prohibited on YouTube. At the end of the video, Paul asked the audience to be attentive to himself and added that “depression, personal problems and suicide are not jokes.”

Twitter users have criticized Paul for candid shots, laughter near the body and staged scenes.

“Suicide is not a joke. Suicide is not a way to get views. Suicide should not be taken lightly. What Logan Paul did is not acceptable. If you encounter problems, please ask for help. Your life is worth so much, you are worth so much

“Logan Paul and his friends laugh and smile when they discover a dead body.”


“Dear Logan Paul, when my brother found his sister’s body, he screamed with fear and horror, and tried to save her. It was the body of a loved one. You can’t go to a suicide forest with a camera and play for mental health ”
