Turns Out Logan Paul's Entire Japan Trip Was A Disrespectful Sh*t Show
Youtuber Logan Paul is the centre of perhaps the website's biggest ever controversy right now. In case you've been living under a very large rock, the overwhelmingly popular vlogger posted a video titled 'We Found A Dead Body In The Japanese Suicide Forest' where he and some friends visited Japan's Aokigahara Forest - otherwise known as the Suicide Forest - and filmed themselves discovering a dead body, before proceeding to post it to Youtube.
After one non-apology and one real apology (which he's making serious $$$ from, btw), the grave that the 22-year-old (ie old enough to know better) has dug himself has only gotten deeper.
Thanks to We The Unicorns, a compilation video has surfaced compiling all of the most problematic and disrespectful moments of Paul and co.'s trip to Japan, and oh man what is he thinking?

The video, among other things, features him throwing a Poké ball at a police officer, dancing around the street in a kimono (a sacred garment to the Japanese people FYI) and yelling his website URL in the most obnoxious way possible.
All this wouldn't seem too bad, if he hadn't prefaced his vlogs with "I've gotta respect the culture...the Japanese are all about respect" before very blatantly taking advantage of and disrespecting one of the most famously polite communities in the world.
We have a feeling this scandal isn't over, and it won't be long until more things come up to taint the name Logan Paul.
