Suicide Forest Controversy
Logan Paul’s December 31, 2017 vlog showed a dead man who had hanged himself in Aokigahara, also known as the “suicide forest” in Japan.
The video was intended to be part of his “Tokyo Adventures” series, but after discovering the body, he cancelled his camping plans and notified the authorities.

Following the backlash, Paul removed the video from his YouTube channel and issued apologies on Twitter and in a subsequent YouTube video. YouTube issued a statement condemning the video, and on January 10, removed Paul’s channels from its preferred ad program and halted the release of his YouTube Red series and other projects.
