YouTube Tweets Open Letter About Logan Paul’s Suicide Video

YouTube has released today, January 10, 2018, a series of tweets that condemned the disturbing suicide video entitled We Found a Dead Body in Japan’s Suicide Forest shared by Logan Paul.

Logan Paul, one of YouTube’s biggest names, who currently has more than 15 million subscribers, shared a video on New Year’s Day of a dead body he found in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, known for the suicides that take place there. Here is the Twitter thread posted by the company earlier this morning.

Many were still disappointed on YouTube’s action as it did not mention what steps it took against Paul, nor did it mention that he, not YouTube, is the person who removed the controversial video from the platform.
