YouTube star Logan Paul is facing a huge heap of backlash on the Internet today after posting a controversial vlog containing a dead body. While on a trip to Japan, Paul and friends decided to visit the infamous “suicide forest” and document it. While there, the group sadly discovered a suicide victim and decided to film the corpse, make a few tasteless jokes, and then upload it to YouTube.
The film has now been removed from the site, but not after a massive uproar from fans, celebrities, and other stars of the YouTube community. Paul has since shared an apology video on YouTube and Twitter, but the Internet isn’t having it, especially other vloggers.
YouTubers will YouTube, and many of the platforms stars have created reaction videos to Paul’s vlog including PewDiePie, who’s no stranger to controversy, True Geordie, ComedyShortsGamer, and Boogie2988.
Many other YouTube stars have taken to Twitter to voice their disgust against Logan Paul and even YouTube for allowing that video to be published and shared on site’s “trending” page.
