Is it that serious? According to NewYorkDaily YouTube has cut Logan Paul completely off after receiving terrible backlash over a video he posted of a suicide victim.
The app made the announcement on Wednesday stating that he’ll also be removed from Google.
The 22-year-old posted a 15-minute video from Japan’s Aokigahara forest, known as the “Suicide Forest” for the number of suicides attempted and committed there, on New Year’s Eve.
Six minutes into the video, Paul and his crew came across the body of a young man who appeared to have hung himself from a tree.
Paul erased the video after meeting immediate backlash.
“This is a first for me. I’ve never faced criticism like this before, because I’ve never made a mistake like this before. I’m surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I’m still a human being. I can be wrong,” he wrote in a Twitter apology.
