YouTuber Logan Paul Now Wanted By Cops Over Japan ‘Dead Body’ Video
Yo I know this is like the 5th time this douche has been covered but it’s crazy how this is all unfolding and as of right now people seem to still want to see how it all plays out. Hopefully, this will be the last Logan Paul story for awhile, but I have a feeling some more sh*t is about to go down.
According to TheSub: JAPANESE police want to question YouTube star Logan Paul over the “insensitive” video of a man hanging in Japan’s so-called “suicide forest”.
Paul, 22, who has over 15 million followers, issued a second apology after he was unanimously criticised for laughing with friends about the body they filmed hanging from a tree.
Masaki Ito, spokesman for the Yamanashi prefectural police, said people are not obligated to report a body but want to speak to him as a suicide may be involved.
Paul’s team is shown in his original video calling police and emergency officials appearing at the scene. Local police overseeing the forest area in Paul’s video have declined comment as Japanese authorities tend not to comment on suicides.
Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world, with more than 21,000 people killing themselves every year.
In the video Paul was heard yelling, “Yo, are you alive?” at the dead man during a 15-minute clip, filmed at the base of Japan’s Mount Fuji.
The camera then zoomed into the man’s body, while Paul asks his tour guide: “Did we just find a dead person in the suicide forest hanging?”
In the wake of the scandal, parents are being urged to discuss online content with their children in the same way they would discuss a news story.
