after *several* bad videos, the internet has had enough
Wait I completely missed what happened can someone fill me in?
@The 48th Ronin, basically Logan here made a vlog where he went into a Japanese “suicide forest” as they call it, and went off trail with the camera and his friends which they’re not allowed to do, made jokes about it and eventually, idk what they expected, found a dead person hanging in the forest. They actually FILMED it up close which is completely disrespectful and some of them were smiling half the time. Dumbass put the corpse in the thumbnail of the video.
@Tyler643, I missed this all too, so thanks for the info. But, why are people mad about it? I've seen more videos/photos than I can count about suicide forests and wayyyy worse. I mean, it's the internet... are people mad just because they know the face and name of the person filming/posting? Because I've never seen such an uproar about things like that.
@Leslie Knope 2020, Because he does it in a very disrespectful way. Cracks jokes during it. Is wearing some ridiculous hat of the aliens from Toy Story. He's just an overall douche
@Leslie Knope 2020, I think the thing that everyone was enraged about was his sweep of viewers. A lot of his following comes from young viewers and/or people who are just looking for a light escape from their reality.
The disrespect stems mainly from the fact that he knew this would become super hated on, thus increasing his brands influence (albeit in a bad way, but bad press is better than no press).
On a gore site, you're looking to stare death in the face, but on a "funny youtubers" channel, it's not the place.
Couple that with the fact that, when one of his staff members claims to be very unsettled standing near the body, Paul laughs it off and says, "What, you've never seen a dead body before?" which I'm sure a lot of the viewers of the video hadn't either.
The fact is, it was a SUPER cheap grab for views, he knew that ahead of time, and decided the internet would forgive him in time. Which they probably will.
@Tyler643, ok, thank you for the info!!!
Maybe an unpopular opinion, I don't know. People should stop wishing death on Logan. There is absolutely no defense for what he did, it was disrespectful and utterly awful and he should be punished for it, what that punishment is I don't know. But it's not okay to wish death on someone for committing this type of wrong. You don't right a wrong with another wrong.
@DandyZombie35, someone tell that to the justice system and every General ever. They keep killing all the killers.
But in the case of this kid yeah stop wishing death on him for being a greedy unscrupulous attention whore
@DandyZombie35, May I wish death upon his YouTube channel and social media influence?
@Beaverdd15, Oh yes.
@DandyZombie35, Okay, thanks!
@DandyZombie35, but you can right future wrongs that will be committed. People are wishing death on him because Hypebeasts don't learn. 'Anything for views'
@DandyZombie35, it's the world of YouTube bloggers, nothing but drama and death threats
@DandyZombie35, Do I think he should die because of it? No. Do I think he should still be allowed to have a YouTube channel after it? Also no.
@darkness my friend, Honestly, there should be some sort of punishment for doing this, maybe not removong him from the platform, but flagging all of his channels for automatic demonitization for a few months.
@DandyZombie35, what he did was wrong no doubt but death is pretty brutal for someone as.. Special as he is.
@DandyZombie35, i agree. In mount onion the only time you should desire death upon another is if that person causes substantial grief to others and there isnt another reasonable way to stop it.
Wishing grief (such as death) or harassing someone for their past actions without the expressed intent to prevent similar future action is sadistic and deserves corrective action as well
@Darth Panserbjorne, dude please correct this comment it’s really bugging me that every time I read it I think it says “mount onion”
@kittensandbacon, done, thanks
I saw highlights of his trip. Even of he never went to Forrest, he was still a disrespectful jackass the entire time.
@Tyler643, -not be born in the first place
@Tyler643, - switch places with that guy
@Donald Trump, - dont be selfish
Too many snowflakes
