This is just shocking.
YouTuber Logan Paul has apologised for his latest video in which he filmed the body of a suicide victim and made jokes about it after fans turned on him for his “disgusting” behaviour.
In the since deleted video, Logan was filming in the Aokigahara forest near Mount Fuji, which is known to be a site of frequent suicides as he has heard it was “haunted”.
The group stumbled upon a dead body of a person who had hung themselves in the forest, and while the group appeared shocked, they also made jokes and filmed the body, only blurring out the face.
Unsurprisingly, people were disgusted by his behaviour and took to Twitter to slam Logan:

Suicide is not something you joke about. It's so disrespectful that Logan Paul thought it was okay to film a dead guy.— Maddie (@OngoingPain) January 2, 2018
Logan Paul disgusts me beyond words— Eva (@eternlmisery) January 2, 2018
Logan Paul had no right to film that man who committed suicide and then decide to upload it to YouTube as a vlog. There is no excuse for that. That's all I have to say on that matter— David (@RenDavid03) January 2, 2018
At least @LoganPaul ‘s sub count has only been going down since this whole thing - only good thing to come of this— Èmįłÿ Åñńė (@the_phan_clan) January 2, 2018
don't think I've ever been as confronted in my life as I was having @LoganPaul shove a dead body in my face, filming it from less than a metre away. 2018 is cancelled.— jen rose (@jenansett) January 2, 2018
The body may have been random to you, but to so many others it was a father, a brother, a son- someone’s friend. Someone’s LOVED ONE.— Alex Rodas (@_Sxmpxtxrnxl_) January 2, 2018
Logan Paul is a vile human being. His youtube channel should be deleted for this. The amount of disrespect he has shown is disgusting.— Jess (@Jessgc95) January 2, 2018
Logan has since deleted the video from his channel and released a statement apologising for his actions:
Dear Internet, pic.twitter.com/42OCDBhiWg— Logan Paul (@LoganPaul) January 2, 2018
Here’s hoping Logan’s learnt from this mistake.
