Logan Paul posted a video yesterday, entitled 'We Found A Dead Body In The Japanese Suicide Forest...'.
The video showed footage of what appeared to be a dead body in Aokigahara, a forest located at the base of Mount Fuji. This forest is known for its high suicide rates.
This brought an onslaught of outrage across the internet. Logan Paul took down the video and took to Twitter to apologise.

All eyes on you, @YouTube. What Logan Paul did was unacceptable and deserves decisive action. There is no place on YouTube for that kind of content.— Meg Turney (@megturney) January 2, 2018
