Logan Paul is receiving an angry backlash for a comment he left on Cardi B's Instagram
The veritable maelstrom which ensued after Logan Paul posted a video featuring the dead body of an apparent suicide victim shows no sign of dying down, in part due to the actions of Logan Paul himself. The YouTube star who evidently didn't see the problematic nature of the video's content when uploading the 15-minute vlog has been lambasted for being "disrespectful" and "disgusting". The video depicts him and a group of friends exploring the Aokigahara Forest (often referred to as the "suicide forest") at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan and mocking the individual who had chosen to take their own life.
The 22-year-old, who has over 15 million "subscribers", has since taken down the video. However, the public and indeed YouTube itself weren't content with just letting the matter lie. At the beginning of January, YouTube issued a statement via their Twitter account condemning Paul's actions. "It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying," they wrote. "We know that the actions of one creator can affect the entire community, so we'll have more to share soon on steps we're taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again."
The video sharing platform then proceeded to suspend his account, remove his channels from the ad program, Google Preferred, and place the sequel to his YouTube film, The Thinning, on hold. The airing of Logan Paul Vs. was also halted, and he was cut from season four of the YouTube Red series, Foursome.
While one would expect the former Vine star to be incredibly cautious in wake of the of incident, it appears that he has has once again come under fire. This time, for a comment he left on one of Cardi B's Instagram posts.
Logan Paul is apparently back at it again. The disgraced YouTube content creator didn't help his own cause after leaving a rather contentious comment on Cardi B's recent Instagram post.
The rapper posted a photograph of her at this year's Grammy awards on Wednesday day with the caption, "They trinna crucify me like they did Christ."
And then Paul - only a month after facing heavy criticism for his incredibly insensitive vlog - proceeded to comment, 'Lawlz u tellin me".
And naturally, the people of the internet were not impressed. One social media users replied to Paul's comment, writing "might not be the best thing to say right now", while another simply stated, "maybe don't post videos of dead people".
One individual summed it up nicely, saying "Jesus only died for our sins and you got rightfully criticised for mocking a suicide victim. Basically the same thing, right?"
Uh oh, looks like Logan Paul's incited the ire of the internet once again. Some people just never learn, do they?
