YouTube star Logan Paul has apologized for uploading a graphic video of himself and his team walking through Japan’s Aokigahara -- also known as the “Suicide Forest” -- and appearing to make light of a body hanging from a tree. But many YouTube and social media stars did not accept the apology.
Fellow YouTuber Grayson Dolan spoke out about the incident on Twitter, saying, “I’m not gonna stay silent I’m gonna stand up for what’s right right now. Suicide is serious. People have lost loved ones, idols, hero’s, fans to suicide. Filming a video and mocking a victim is not raising suicide awareness. Laughing at the body of a poor depressed soul. I can’t believe the disrespect of the victim, their family, and your YOUNG fans. You’re 22 there’s no excuse.”
