YouTube star Logan Paul faced massive controversy this week after he posted a vlog on his channel on January 1st. In the vlog, he visited Japan’s Aokigahara forest, otherwise known as the “Suicide Forest,” and came across a dead suicide victim.

Like brother and fellow YouTuber Jake Paul, Logan Paul is no stranger to criticism. Earlier he faced backlash after he posted a video where he appeared to be disrespecting and annoying locals when he visited Tokyo.

Celebrities, other YouTubers, and even his own fans have criticized Paul for his recent video on the dead body. It was Paul’s reaction to the body which angered many; BBC reports that he cracked jokes and laughed at the body after he found it. In addition, the camera zoomed in on parts of the body. Only the face was blurred out. The video, which made trending on YouTube, has since been taken down by Paul’s team.

The controversy has sparked new questions on YouTube’s community guidelines, the lack of transparency with the trending page, and mental health awareness.

Logan apologized twice with a tweet and a video on YouTube. On Wednesday, January 3rd, he announced he would be taking a break from Youtube on Twitter.
