Logan Paul Sparks Outrage After Sharing Video Of A Dead Body In Japan
Warning: This post contains sensitive material.
Vlogger Logan Paul is under fire (and rightfully so) after filming a dead body in Aokigahara, a known Japanese "suicide forest." The video, which has since been deleted, shows Paul joking in front of the camera before stumbling upon a suicide victim hanging in a tree. The video, despite claims of demonetization, spurred heavy criticism for its seemingly exploitative and highly insensitive nature - especially considering Japan's historically high suicide rate.
Logan has since apologized, claiming he "didn't do it for the views," but the critical tweets - and memes - are still pouring in.
