So Logan Paul has been facing a lot of controversy ever since he posted that controversial video on YouTube with footage showing the body of a man who committed suicide in Japan’s ‘suicide forest’.

That happened on December 31 (he has since taken down the video) – and now, more than a week after, YouTube has finally responded to the controversy.

In a series of tweets, YouTube stated:

An open letter to our community:

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You’re right to be. You deserve to know what’s going on.

Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views. As Anna Akana put it perfectly: “That body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness.”

It’s taken us a long time to respond, but we’ve been listening to everything you’ve been saying. 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.
