Logan Paul Apologies (Twice!) Over Dead Body Video, but Twitter Isn’t Having It

Lots to unpack here. Have you been following the story?

Sunday afternoon, famous YouTuber Logan Paul uploaded a 15-minute video showing him and his friends going to the Suicide Forest at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji – named for the high number of self-inflicted deaths that happen there.

In the extremely graphic video – which he says he filmed to call attention to the issue of suicide – he stumbles upon a dead body hanging from a tree. He giggles uncomfortably, and zooms in while police are called.

“Yo, are you alive?” he says in the video. “Are you fucking with us?”

He has since deleted it and offered multiple apologies.

The first:

And later had this to say:

Twitter, though, was positively apoplectic, as you can imagine, with celebrities like Aaron Paul, Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner, 13 Reason’s Why Christian Navarro, Jeffree Star, Andy Richter and others weighing in on the controversy.

As many people have pointed out, his apology has a lot of holes in it. First of all, he should have just known better, period. If his intention was to shed light on suicide, he could have simply spoken about his experience in the forest and what he saw. That he filmed it, showed the body, zoomed in on it, then edited it – keeping the laugh in!– and STILL SAW NOTHING WRONG with anything he did, shows a serious lack self-awareness, integrity, and moral principals. His apology is no better, riddled, as it is, with self-aggrandizing statements that are all very strange and disturbing.

What do you think? Did you watch it? Will you accept his apologies? What should be the ramifications for something like this?
