Filming a Dead Body is Not the Only Messed Up Thing Logan Paul Did in Japan
Aside from tastelessly filming a suicide victim’s body, laughing at it, and then posting it for profit on YouTube, Logan Paul’s Japan trip in general is full of despicable and disrespectful stunts in public and on unsuspecting Japanese people.
The extreme backlash to the “suicide forest” video was expected, forcing Paul to apologize and take a break from YouTube.
But while many were focused on Paul horrifically disrespecting a suicide victim and his family (and rightfully so), his VLOGS in Japan are also enraging.
On top of horribly disrespecting the mentally ill, Logan Paul’s ENTIRE Japan trip was a mess. He ran around in a conical straw hat, parading an Asian stereotype. He disrupted landmarks and koi ponds and the general public. He’s a horrific example of American tourism. pic.twitter.com/EI3fCL7kHH
How is anything of this funny? Japanese Vlogger Reina Scully said it best in a YouTube video condemning Paul for his actions.
“The way he behaves — there’s definitely a sliver of when people used to talked down to me because I was foreign.”
“I really really see that in his vlogs and it bothers me,” Scully Said in the video.
“I really do think that maybe he doesn’t see us on the same level of human being as him. I think that’s perhaps why he was able to do such a horrid thing, like interacting with a body that has passed.”
