You must have heard of Logan Paul and “that” tape. The controversial social media star filmed a hanging body he and his crew found at the Aokigahara forest, in Japan, known to be a frequent destination of suicides. The initial idea was to film only the “haunted” forest, but they ran into the suicide victim and, even though they were shocked, they also made some jokes. Logan Paul uploaded the video on his YouTube channel and soon after became the most hated person on the internet. People were outraged at his disrespectful behavior, calling for YouTube to remove his channel. YouTube didn’t completely ban his channel, but the company removed all ads from it, which means Logan Paul can’t earn money like a social-media star anymore.
