Looks Like Logan Paul Made A LOT Of Cash Off His Apology Video
This just keeps getting worse.
The YouTube personality who vlogged from inside Japan's suicide forest and filmed the body of a victim is getting even more flack.
According to a report from SocialBlade, Logan Paul monetised his controversial apology video and made a sh*t tonne of cash - anywhere between USD$12,000 to $97,000 (AUD$123,000).
This isn't surprising as the video has been viewed over 24 million times. The original vlog has since been deleted, but was monetised briefly before being turned off.
Hey @LoganPaul you really want to apologize? Donate the $20,000.00 you just made on your MONETIZED apology video to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Set a real example. Stop with the crocodile tears. Do something that matters...

this actually looks bad on Logan Paul AND YouTube because YouTube didn’t do anything. They didn’t remove it even after it appeared on their trending page, they didn’t put any strikes on his channel & they still let him monetize his apology video.
