YouTube star Logan Paul was blasted for an insensitive New Year’s Eve video that included footage of a suicide victim.

The 22-year-old vlogger posted a 15-minute video from Japan’s Aokigahara forest, known as the “Suicide Forest” for the number of suicides attempted and committed there.

About six minutes into the video, Paul and his crew came across the body of a young man who appeared to have hung himself from a tree.

“This is the most real vlog I've ever posted on this channel,” Paul said in the video. “I think this definitely marks a moment in YouTube history.”

Logan Paul Says There Will Be 'No Vlog for Now' in Wake of Backlash Following Controversial Video

  Logan Paul Says There Will Be 'No Vlog for Now' in Wake of Backlash Following Controversial Video Logan Paul is taking a break from his daily vlog. Days after the YouTube star came under fire Sunday for posting a graphic video of the body of an alleged suicide victim filmed in Aokigahara, Japan — a forest at Mount Fuji’s base that is often referred to as “suicide forest” due to the high number of suicides that occur there — he revealed Wednesday that he will not be releasing new videos for the time being.

Paul then proceeded to film closer to the body before apologizing to viewers for what was “supposed to be a fun vlog.”

He also said that the video was supposed to focus on the supernatural aspects of the Suicide Forest, not the suicides.

Paul ended the video by urging viewers to seek help if they are contemplating suicide.

But backlash hit almost immediately from people who blasted the YouTube star for filming the body.

Japanese Cops Say Logan Paul Videos Broke the Law—and They’d Just Love to Nail Him

  Japanese Cops Say Logan Paul Videos Broke the Law—and They’d Just Love to Nail Him Video of a man who’d committed suicide was gruesome, and Paul’s subsequent clips show destruction of property and public indecency. All the evidence is right there on YouTube.Logan Paul, YouTuber and professional troll, may have raised awareness of Japan’s suicide problem during his stay in our country unintentionally, but he seems to have broken several criminal laws intentionally. Or so the police see it. And if he returns to Japan, he won’t be welcome; he may even end up arrested and charged with several misdemeanors. He could be accused of more serious crimes as well.

“How dare you! You disgust me. I can't believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad,” “Breaking Bad” alum Aaron Paul tweeted. “Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell.”

“The amount of personal + social unawareness Logan Paul has displayed in THAT video is mind blowing to me,” tweeted Rebecca Black. “How could one w such power and influence have the audacity to put something so thoughtless online? You have potentially intensified an entire family's grief beyond measure.”

"You’re an idiot. You’re not raising awareness. You’re mocking. I can’t believe how self-praising your “apology” is. You don’t deserve the success (views) you have," tweeted "Game of Thrones" star Sophie Turner. "I pray to God you never have to experience anything like that man did."

Paul erased the video and apologized Monday night.

Logan Paul Still Has ‘Opportunity to Prove’ Himself to YouTube

  Logan Paul Still Has ‘Opportunity to Prove’ Himself to YouTube TCA 2018: "He's made missteps, unfortunate missteps. He's expressed remorse very quickly," Robert Kyncl says"We don't know," the Kyncl said during YouTube's panel at the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday. "I couldn't really answer that. Everything is evolving so fast and the best thing we can do is make sure we put all projects on hold indefinitely.

“This is a first for me. I’ve never faced criticism like this before, b ecause I’ve never made a mistake like this before. I’m surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I’m still a human being. I can be wrong,” he wrote.

“I didn’t do it for views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. That’s never the intention. I intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought ‘if this video saves just ONE life, it’ll be worth it,’ I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video. I still am.”
