FUJIKAWAGUCHIKO — YouTube star Logan Paul recently went to the Aokigahara Forest, otherwise known as a “sea of trees,” or “the suicide forest.” However, the YouTube star found a victim of suicide hanging from a tree, and he decided to play with the body for hours on end.
In fact, this playtime went on for so long that his DSLR camera ran out of storage. Since the camera stopped recording, it’s believed that Paul then was about to commit necrophilia on the corpse, but his friends stopped him, saying that “this won’t help your career, Logan.”
Of course, the combination of these actions has resulted in a major backlash, which Paul responded to with a Tweet:

However, this Tweet has not helped his reputation. What will Logan Paul do next on his trip in Japan?
