Notorious YouTube star Logan Paul has claimed that he deserves a “second chance” after a controversial trip to Japan that saw him filming the video of a suicide victim.
The vlogger was condemned earlier this 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 resulting fall-out from the trip prompted YouTube to issue an apology, condemning Paul’s actions and clarifying that they had “acted accordingly”, before removing him from major advertising campaigns.
After issuing an apology for his actions, Paul has now claimed that he’s been “treated fairly” in the aftermath of the video, although he’s hinted at future plans.
“Everyone deserves second chances, bro”, he told TMZ.
Before the controversy, Paul boasted a staggering 16 million YouTube followers and secured a net worth of of £11.1 million after earning £9.25 million last year alone.
He also launched a clothing line, called Maverick Apparel and previously purchased a £4.8 million mansion with his vast fortune.
