Logan Paul Suicide Forest Vlog

Twitter 'Disgusted' by Logan Paul's Apology

As previously reported, Paul faced a wave of backlash after posting the controversial video, titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest...", in Aokigahara, Japan, where many people take their lives every year.

The millionaire vlogger, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, was forced to apologise himself last September when he used an offensive racist slur while live-streaming himself playing a video game. "He did this this morning", Paul says.

"I meant to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought "if this video saves just ONE life, it'll be worth it", I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video".

Someone off camera says: "I don't feel good".

Paul posted a more sanguine video on YouTube on Monday, showing him romping through a Tokyo park, talking about his apparel brand, visiting gadget stores and running around city streets wearing a Pokemon outfit.

Paul said that he was not monetizing the video for "obvious reasons" and gave a graphic video warning.

The 22-year-old from OH, who is the older brother of former Disney star Jake Paul, added he "didn't do it for views" saying: "I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity".

Some called for Paul to be removed from the platform.

Mr Guino said he had now blocked YouTube from being watched in his house as a result of the video.

Those unimpressed by Logan's apology included Game of Thrones actress Sophie, who tweeted him: "You're an idiot".

"I do strongly believe that you can joke about anything, but I also believe that there is a right way and not the best way to joke about things", Kjellberg said at the time. You're not raising awareness. You are pure trash. You're mocking. I can't believe how self-praising your "apology" is. You don't deserve the success (views) you have.

"What, you never stand next to a dead guy", Paul relplies. "Suicide is not a joke ... Go rot in hell".

Fellow YouTube star PewDiePie, himself no stranger to controversy-he was widely criticized for using racist language and repeated instances of anti-Semitism in his vlogs-appeared to question Paul's motivation for shooting the controversial footage in a tweet posted on Tuesday.

"Children are born into a digital world, for parents to keep up they need to be involved in their kids' online lives in the same way they are their normal lives - that way kids can enjoy the benefits of the internet safely".

YouTube declined to comment.
