The celebrity YouTuber Logan Paul has apologised after sparking outrage by posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim in Japan.

The 22-year-old American, who has 15 million subscribers on YouTube, was labelled "disrespectful" and "disgusting" after he joked with his friends about discovering the body in Aokigahara forest, a notorious suicide spot at the base of Mount Fuji.

The video, which Paul posted on Sunday, received millions of views before it was removed.

Paul and his friends, who are filming from various locations in Japan, reportedly came across the body moments after entering the forest. Their video showed the body of a man, whose identity is unknown, from several angles but blurs his face.

A member of the group is heard remarking that he "doesn't feel good". Paul replies: "What, you never stand next to a dead guy?" and then laughs.

You know I personally don't like logan paul.. but I can't say I've never made a mistake. I don't care how bad the mistake he did was (Killing/Ect.. would be different) but all he did was film a dead body. I can look up on the internet right now that there's many of photos/videos of dead bodies and yet I have heard nothing from the people who have posted those (Disturbing) photos/videos NOR HAVE THEY EVEN BEEN TAKING DOWN?? and people ignore those things they don't even bother to criticise those things.and yes logan paul does deserve to be criticised but to be hated on like this.. idk about all this. I've searched on youtube about this and I'm seeing "dear logan paul" from everyone and not everyone but I've ran into people trying to get views off of this I'm not on logan pauls side I'm just giving my opinion.

I don't think people are mad about him filming it, I think it's how he reacted to it. Apparently he made a joke asking if they're still alive and then laughing about it, which people have said is being insensitive to suicide and Japan as a whole simply because of the history with that place. Then he's being called a hypocrite because in his apology he says how suicide is a serious subject -- yet was just laughing at a person who committed suicide. Plus him adding in #Logang4Lyfe at the end didn't help at all, because it's viewed as some PR damage control to try and stay where he is.

The video being taken down was his own doing as far as I know because of the backlash. It also could have been YouTube because death videos on there even if it's an extreme/gruesome 'meme' compilation get taken down mad quick; while this video is not that severe, it still had a dead person in it.

I can't stand this kid, and that's pretty sick. I hope he looses all his subscribers.
