Logan Paul is once again apologizing for posting a video on his popular YouTube channel that showcased a dead body.
The popular vlogger, with more than 15 million subscribers, uploaded a video that showed what appeared to be the body of an apparent suicide victim in Japan’s Aokigahara forest.
Paul deleted the video and posted a statement last night, but now he’s apologizing on camera.
“I should have never posted the video,” Paul says in his apology. “I should have put the cameras down, stopped recording what we were going through … There are a lot of things I should have done differently, but I didn’t.”
“For that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry,” Paul added.
He concludes the video by saying, “I’m ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to do better. I will do better.”
YouTube released a statement about the video, saying, “Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video. YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner. If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated. We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center.”
