Logan Paul is finding himself at the center of another social media controversy following his comments on Cardi B’s Instagram page. The 25-year-old rapper shared a shot of herself from the 2018 Grammys on the 31st of January and used one of Kanye West’s lyrics as the caption.
The lyric goes, “they tryna crucify me like they did Christ.” Following the highly controversial suicide video posted by the YouTube star, Logan wrote, “Lawlz, you’re telling me,” on Cardi’s social media page sparking a backlash, once again.
The “crucifixion” Paul is referring to is the widespread backlash he faced when everyone in the world condemned his video of the Suicide Forest in Aokigahara, where a dead man was pictured.
In the video which is now deleted, Logan said, “we found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest.” Paul nervously laughed and asked his friend if he had ever stood “next to a dead guy.”

The 22-year-old media personality sat down for an interview with Good Morning America for the first time today and opened up about what he had learned.
Logan said they just wanted to have a fun vlog and camp for a night and ended up finding a body, which shocked them.
Paul said he learned that maybe it happened for a reason, meaning he was supposed to spread the message of suicide prevention.
Paul said his videos are always meant to start crucial conversations and entertain people in the process. The YouTube star said, “it’s to get people talking about something that I don’t think people are talking about much.” Suicide currently claims the lives of millions of people each year.
