When my brother found my sister’s body, he screamed with horror & confusion & grief & tried to save her. That body was a person someone loved.
You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness.

How dare you! You disgust me. I can’t believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell.

If Paul really wanted to bring attention to suicide prevention there are a million ways he could’ve done it at home in the US. Talking to survivors. To families of those who’ve taken their lives.

And while Logan Paul has largely been condemned for his actions worldwide, there are plenty of people who are sticking up from him — namely, his young, impressionable fans.

I think people need to fuxking get a grip on reality. REALity. Yes it was a sensitive subject but if I saw a dead body or you saw a dead body you’d tell or show someone right?! You’re best friend your husband your boss.. he showed his family! The motherfuxn #LOGANG

That dead man should be grateful he had a chance to be seen with the one and only Logan Paul! Logan gave him a huge opportunity to be seen by millions of people and you guys are mad about that? Disgusting! #logang

Perhaps the most disturbing comes from a self-professed Maverick, who claimed that the dead man in Paul’s video should feel lucky and that he would kill himself for the same opportunity.

“Since I’m a Japanese Maverick, I deserve to have a platform,” says one young teenager, wearing Logan Paul merchandise to show solidarity with his beloved YouTuber. “The guy who died should be lucky to be in Logan Paul’s VLogs. I’d do anything — even that — to be in Logan Paul’s VLogs because you get recognized by a lot of people, you know? Millions of people! And since I’m a Maverick, we do different things, so even though a normal person would not film it, we’re Mavericks, so we film it anyway. So [makes noises as he pretends to shoot viewers with a money gun] Maverick Style!”
While it may be too late for the LoGang, all hope is not lost; one child’s voice stands out above the rest:
When your 4 year old finds out about what @LoganPaul did. 🙄

“Logan Paul [is] a jerk because he saw a dead body and he laughed,” said one four year old.
Paul has not elaborated on the backlash since his second apology was posted on January 2.
