At the bottom end of December 2017, Logan Paul made one of the greatest mistakes in his life by uploading a video which graphically displayed the remains of a recent suicide. Traveling in Japan, Paul claimed to want to raise awareness on mental health and suicide by filming in Aokigahara, a forest in Japan where high concentrations of suicide take place. Only 22 years old, Paul was suddenly faced with the backlash of millions of people around the world. What Paul came upon in the forest was traumatizing for a young man out of Ohio who had never before witnessed death. However, what came upon Paul in the following weeks was equally traumatizing. Paul took a three week hiatus from any social media and promptly removed the video.

Recently, Paul released his return video titled “Suicide: Be Here Tomorrow” in which he interviews various professionals and individuals about suicide, including the remarkable Kevin Hines, who survived a suicide attempt jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. Paul Pledged to donate one million dollars to various organizations, including the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline organization and #BeThe1To.

Logan Paul sat down with Good Morning America to discuss his experience. “This was a horrible lapse of judgment,” Paul admitted, “and I can, will, and am going to learn from it and be a better person.” Paul discloses that people have written “…the most horrible, horrific things” to him including telling him to commit suicide himself. Though he is learning a lot, Paul touches on the most important lesson he has gained. “One of the things I’m learning that actually pertains to me as well is, crisis passes,” Paul explained. “For anyone suffering, I think it’s important to know that.” He emphasizes “You are not alone.” The backlash Paul faced from commenters, parents, and major media outlets alike was not easy to handle. “For me, why I say this is important for me is because…this has been the hardest time of my life,” he began. “I’ve never been hated by the whole world and its been something to definitely overcome.”
