Logan Paul Suicide Forest Controversy
Paul put a video he made at Aokigahara at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan on his YouTube channel on December 31, 2017. People often call this place the “suicide forest” because it is where many people have gone to end their lives. A dead body was hanging from a tree in Paul’s video. The video was watched 6.3 million times in the first 24 hours after it was posted.
Several online petitions asked YouTube to get rid of Paul’s channel. On January 1, 2018, Paul took the video down from his YouTube channel and apologized in a tweet. On January 9, YouTube said on their Twitter account that they did not like Paul’s video.
On January 10, YouTube said it took Paul’s channels out of the Google Preferred program for ads. After that, Paul gave $1 million to groups that work to stop people from killing themselves. Paul has also kicked off the show “Foursome” on YouTube Red.
Logan Paul Other Disagreements
Because of Paul’s “pattern of behavior,” YouTube stopped putting ads on his channels at the beginning of February 2018. YouTube was talking about Paul’s participation in the Tide Pod challenge, the time he took a fish out of his pond to, in his words, “jokingly give it CPR,” and the time he filmed himself using a taser gun on two dead rats.
During that time, Paul didn’t make any money from people visiting his page. Two weeks later, YouTube put ads back on his channel. But he was on probation for 90 days, which meant that his medium and its videos couldn’t appear on YouTube’s “trending” page.
Then, in January 2019, Paul said on his podcast, “What is this, March for Men Only?… We are going to try being gay for one month.” Many people criticized Paul’s comments, mainly because he seemed to say that being gay is a choice.
