Have you heard of Aokigahara, Japan’s infamous suicide forest? After YouTube star Logan Paul filmed a suicide victim hanging from a tree it’s hard not to know what this place is.

Logan Paul posted the video Sunday December 31, with zero thoughts in his head that this was wrong or inhumane.

Not too mention that a majority of his following are teen girls and younger kids.

He has publicly come out and addressed the situation and apologized for his actions, but it’s still too early to fix the problem he created.

Logan Paul said, “Suicide is not a joke…We came here with an intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest…Suicide is not the answer. There are people who love you, care for you…This is too scarily real.”

However, to be a decent human being you should know better than to undermine someone’s life and take their suicide as a joke even if you aren’t directly making fun of the person.

 There should be a level of respect you hold for a dead person especially if they commited suicide.Not publicly blast them for the whole world to see and joke about the whole situation unfolding in front of you.

It’s nice that Logan Paul removed this video and made a public apology shortly after taking it down, but that’s all people do when they mess up today. They think it’s alright to do what they did, realize that this is affecting people and ruining their so called spotlight, have their publicist write a sugar coated apology letter and post it to social media to help keep their “reputation.”

We as a society need to move past this and stop thinking its ok to do something wrong and believe that just apologizing for your actions right after is fine. Its not. We need start looking deeper into what we are doing and who it may affect. We need to start thinking before we do and stop doing things because you think that it’s funny in the moment.
