"I'm not disgraced, I took a break"
Controversial viral star Logan Paul has returned to Youtube, posting a video in which he claimed to be ‘lit as fuck’.
The vlogger was condemned last month after uploading a clip to his YouTube channel that showed him and his friends discovering a dead body in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest, a notorious suicide hotspot. +It later transpired that Paul was responsible for consistent inappropriate behaviour throughout the trip, including thrusting dead fish in people’s faces and running through the streets dressed as a Pokemon.
The 12 minute clip begins in a rather cinematic style, taking the form of a trailer for a Hollywood Blockbuster as he describes himself as a ‘legend’ and ‘maverick’, while making light his standing as a ‘disgraced’ Youtuber.
“What do you mean ‘disgraced’?,” he argues with the narrator. “I’m not disgraced, boy – I took a break. I’m still lit as fuck. What other Youtuber do you know that can take a three week break and still gain a million subscribers?”
The video then vowed to put an end to ‘the era of boring content’, before going into his usual frantic and loud antics, screaming at viewers to purchase his merchandise after Youtube cut him from their top advertising program.
Meanwhile, Paul also made headlines when he went skydiving and his parachute didn’t open.
The vlogger, who boasts over 16 million followers on YouTube, shared a photo of the faulty parachute on Twitter and explained how his life was ultimately saved by a second chute.
“Here’s a photo of my empty pack after I had to cut away my main parachute because it didn’t open”, Paul captioned the photo.
“I can tell you – the feeling of the blue reserve parachute opening and functioning properly was miraculous. This has never happened to another student before at this school. LP lives on.”
His brother, Jake, also came under fire recently for rapping the n-word in a video.
