YouTube vlogger Logan Paul apologized once again on Tuesday (Jan. 2) for a video he posted -- and has since removed -- that appeared to show a Japanese suicide victim.
“I’ve made a severe and continuous lapse in my judgment, and I don’t expect to be forgiven,” Paul says in the nearly two-minute video. “I’m simply here to apologize.”
The latest apology comes after Paul uploaded a macabre clip filmed in Japan's Aokigahara, known as the "suicide forest" for the high number of suicides that take place there, that earned the former Vine star a deluge of criticism over the weekend. Before it was removed, the post showing the 22-year-old and some friends happening upon what appears to be the hanging body of a man had accumulated millions of views. "Did we just find a dead person in the suicide forest, hanging?" Paul is heard asking of what he later terms the "most real vlog" he's ever made.
