Logan Paul is now wanted by police after his insensitive suicide video.
It sounds like this YouTube controversy is far from over.
By now you’ve heard about Logan Paul’s disastrous video that he filmed at a Japanese suicide forest. The video included an image of a hanging dead body, thought to be a suicide victim. After being DRAGGED through the interwebs and apologizing TWICE, Logan’s saga isn’t over. NOW, Logan is wanted by Japanese police. Buuuuut it’s not what you might think. Logan is not in legal trouble himself, but is wanted for questioning regarding the apparent suicide that day.
Masaki Ito, a spokesperson for the Yamanashi prefectural police told The Sun that while people are not obligated to report a body, they still want to talk to him as a suicide is likely involved. But let’s note that Logan’s team DID call the cops that day after they found a dead body in the Aokigahara forest.
Logan revealed yesterday that he’s taking a break from YouTube for the first time EVER, in order to reflect. Logan tweeted, “Taking time to reflect. No vlog for now. See you soon.” In his first apology for the suicide video Logan pointed out that he made a 15-minute TV show every single day for the past 460 days. So taking a break is not something Logan takes lightly.
The good news for Logan is that this controversial video hasn’t affected his role in an upcoming horror flick. Logan will star in Jeffrey Reddick’s new film “Supersitition: The Rule of 3’s” and TMZ reports there have been no talks of recasting Logan.
