When YouTuber Logan Paul posted a video of himself in Japan's suicide forest, the rest of the world learned what everyone in Northeast Ohio already knows about many Westlake natives. They're usually garbage. Paul's content featured a man who appears to have killed himself; the entire clip is incredibly distasteful.
Angry tweets about Logan Paul's video have erupted and they're quite harsh. Now no longer known simply as the weird blond guy doing splits in the subway, this vlogger finds himself among the top echelons of YouTube's worst users. Even celebrities are slamming him. Clearly, Paul failed to understand the serious impact of suicide; it's an issue that affects every world citizen.
Because most people do, in fact, comprehend the severity of suicide, many responses to his initial post are informative and incensed. Some even call for a YouTube ban on all of Logan Paul's videos. They don't believe he deserves a platform to influence pop culture. The only person to win in this fiasco is Jake Paul, who now no longer holds the title for worst Paul brother.

Sansa Hopes Paul Never Has To Experience Such Tragedy
@LoganPaul You’re an idiot. You’re not raising awareness. You’re mocking. I can’t believe how self-praising your “apology” is. You don’t deserve the success (views) you have. I pray to God you never have to experience anything like that man did.— Sophie Turner (@SophieT) January 2, 2018
