Paul's latest stint comes a year after the two-time 2017 Teen Choice Award winner faced backlash after posting a video Sunday titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest" that showed a corpse hanging from a tree in Aokigahara forest near Mt. Fuji. He took down the clip a day later, when it had already garnered at least 6 million views.
