Logan Paul: In Trouble With the Police and Being Sued

Hannah Rogers | 05 January, 2018, 14:44

Paul posted the controversial video December 31 on his YouTube channel, which has more than 15 million subscribers, and took it down the next day.

Logan Paul has become a subject of backlash since he posted a controversial video on his YouTube channel earlier this week.

On Jan. 2, Paul shared an apology video on his channel.

Many are questioning how Paul could apologize while actually profiting, taking to Twitter to tell the comedy video maker to donate every dollar he makes, while also questioning why YouTube hasn't done more in light of this situation.

This means that the YouTube "Trusted Flagger" team received a report on the video, which depicted the hanging dead body of a suicide victim, and deemed that it was acceptable to host on their platform without any age restriction whatsoever.

Logan Paul's antics in the Aokigahara Forest, where he came across a dead body, seem to have pissed off everyone.

Paul has since issued a pair of apologies for the video, which has been taken down. "Hold my beer", and invented Jake Paul and his Jakejomps or whatever dumbass word he calls the elementary school kids who watch his videos.

"While YouTube might not explicitly encourage Paul to pull ever-more insane stunts, it stands to benefit financially when he and creators like him gain millions of views off of outlandish episodes", Louise Matsakis wrote for Wired.

A YouTube spokesperson said in a statement, "Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video".

But now Logan is taking heat once again as a result of this controversy - this time for allegedly making money off of his apology video.

"I don't expect to be forgiven". Other YouTubers have expressed their disappointment and anger over Paul's choice to publish the video.
