YouTube sensation Anna Akana made a surprise revelation while delivering her acceptance speech for best acting in a drama at the 2018 Streamy Awards on Oct. 22.
On Tuesday, YouTube finally broke their silence and made a formal announcement regarding the Logan Paul incident on their Twitter page.
“An open letter to our community: Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You’re right to be. You deserve to know what’s going on.
Has this ever happened to you? You log onto YouTube, eager to watch your favorite internet personality do wacky things, but wouldn’t you know it — they disrespectfully decide to film a suicide victim’s dead body instead?
Yikes. Just gotta throw the whole Logan out at that point. Maybe even Jake for good measure.
Anna Akana is calling out Logan Paul following the outrage over a video he posted to YouTube on Monday night showing the body of a suicide victim in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, also known as the “suicide forest”.
In an open letter to Paul posted on Twitter on Jan. 1, Akana, 28, revealed that her brother felt “horror & confusion & grief” when he tried to save their younger sister’s lifeless body.
In hopes of fostering a more harmonious commuting experience for its riders, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) is using the power of J-Pop’s catchy tunes and the eye-catching visuals of Japanese television production in a unique and colorful promotional campaign.
For the project, Metro teamed up with studio Lord Danger and director Mike Diva to make “Metro Manners”, a series of public service announcements that are meant to create awareness on the importance of common courtesy and basic manners when using public transportation.
Disney has done quite a good job making sure the new Star Wars movies have a relatively diverse cast. The upcoming film “Rogue One“, which is set for release later this year, stars Asian superstar Donnie Yen as a Jedi Master along with other Asian cast members.
Such inclusions will certainly make Asian fans of Star Wars happy, but what if we had more heroes of Asian descent in the Star Wars universe? Now, thanks to a newly released Star Wars fan film, we can continue to let our imaginations run wild.
