Can someone explain to me what the whole Logan Paul suicide forest thing is about. I'd watch the vlog myself but I'm afraid of developing a mental health disorder
@generic zombie, basically he went to the suicide forest and found a body. He filmed it, got close to it blurred the face but not the body. Then he posted it and claimed he was doing it to spread awareness. People are mad because he used someones death as a part of his content. Whether it made money or not doesnt matter cause he got more subs despite that.
@Ginger Incorporated, RUN FORREST RUN!
@generic zombie, search "MagikarpUsedFly Logan Paul" and you should get the jist of the video
The guy is a douche but I don’t see this as a massive deal. Then again, I’m not a softy millennial who complains all the time and pretends to be offended by everything that moves and breathes.
@CooksAndComedy, Except this guy exploited the dead, and suicide victim at that, for his gain. And YT did jack shjt to stop him from getting 6.3 million views. Meanwhile someone makes a parody video using fake blood and an actor to play dead and they get a strike on their channel. There’s more to it than him being an asshat.
@CooksAndComedy, Everything else aside, and just looking strictly at the Logan situation I think more should be being done. There is something seriously wrong with a human who can look at body and their first instinct is video it. I don't care who you are or what is considered the "normal" in this day and age. I know what it feels like to witness death as well as what it feels like to have someone I love take their own life, and to exploit something so horrific and to treat it so casual is absolutely sickening. He should be charged. Even if it's just for the psychological injury he has caused for the family and friends of that man. To have to deal with a loved one taking their own life is indescribable, having that person exploited and defamed as well? Douche doesn't even begin to describe how horrible of a person you would have to be to do that.
@CooksAndComedy, He acted like a complete ass and was extremely disrespectful during his visit to Japan in his videos he posted leading up to the suicide video. He makes all foreigners especially Americans look bad to the Japanese.
Its not about millennials being offend. Its about the absolute disrespect people like him show to people they believe to be inferior to themselves. The only reason someone would treat strangers and other cultures the way he does. Is because he sees them as inferior.
@CooksAndComedy, I agree with you man.
@TheRatMan, that’s not his fault. You’re allowed to do whatever you want, and you should be. He wasn’t mocking the guy. Even though he looks like an idiot, he was saying something positive about it. Even if he didn’t mean it, it’s better than what the other 50 million morons online say to people telling people they don’t know to kill them selves. He just went there to create a video and do what he does. I can’t hate him for that.
@Seohn, I mean he’s allowed to do what he does though. Blame the morons who watch him and love be guy and pay him. Not him. I think he’s a douche and an embarrassment, but he has a platform that works and obviously some people enjoy it.
@P Sherman, I get what you’re saying, but, I think there is more of an issue with the forest and the suicide issue there. That is to be looked at. Yes. He is an annoying douche and is an embarrassment to our generation, but, I still think he didn’t do anything wrong. Reporters everyday do the same stuff and show dead bodies and what not, and they have their outlet. Given this guy didn’t do what most people wanted him to do, but he still can.
@CooksAndComedy, you realize that your comment is like saying blame the people who buy drugs not the drug dealer. Yeah he’s allowed to do what he wants. Never said he wasn’t. That doesn’t change that he’s an ass.
The thing is that people like him that do things like that in countries like Japan make us all foreigners in Japan look bad.
I don’t blame the people that watch him. Because curiosity gets the best of people sometimes. He is the one that created the content. He’s obviously exploiting what he knows is wrong. It’s literally like walking into a building and setting it on fire for views. Do I blame the people who watch the video?
Diverting blame has become such a common thing that its beginning to define the American way. I personally view it as the cowards way of dealing with a problem. Owning up to ones mistakes takes a lot more courage.
@Seohn, maybe you’re right. I know he’s. Garbage human being, but in this society, that’s basically fitting in. People do dumb, outrageous, stuff for attention. I guess it’s not either what he did, but I mean, I do blame blame viewers because it’s like blaming a company for giving us poisoned food. People keep buying it, so you’re just supplying the idiots with what they want.
Now that makes more sense...
