Logan Paul is holding up on the videos for a little while. After Logan posted footage of a dead person from the “Japanese Suicide Forest,” many people are outraged as to his future online. On his Twitter page, the social media star wrote, “taking time to reflect.” Logan currently has around 3.9 million Twitter followers as of Wednesday night, but it may be decreasing.
Or possibly not, there’s an old saying which goes: “Any publicity is good publicity,” and that may, sadly, be the truth in Logan’s case, despite the sinful nature of the video.
Before the backlash, Logan would post a 15-minute video every single day for 460 days. However, his quote that they just found a dead body in the forest may be putting his career on hold for a long time, or for a year at least.

Celebrities and public figures alike have slammed Paul for his video, including people such as Sophie Turner, Aaron Paul, and many others.
Logan has since said “sorry” for his actions, but many aren’t willing to forgive him. The Paul Brothers are already the subject of love-to-hate emotions so things will be notably worse in this case, as individuals who resent the YouTube stars will be jumping at the opportunity to condemn them as much as possible.
Before the video was taken down by Logan, around six million people had already seen it. YouTube, in response, said they were sorry for the family of the person who died. They stated that typically, gory images go along with educational information, and not just for the sake of gratuity. This will be yet another thorn in YouTube’s side, considering they’ve already lost advertisers before in the past.
