Logan Paul

Embattled Youtube star Logan Paul hired a security firm to guard his $6.5 million Los Angeles home after he posted a video of a man hanging from a tree in Suicide Forest in Japan.

The 22-year-old Vlogger, who earned $12 million from endorsements in 2016, posted a video of himself and his friends laughing and joking as the camera zoomed in on the man’s body hanging from a tree.

“Did we just find a dead person in the suicide forest hanging?” He asked a Japanese guide who was leading his group through the forest. “Yo, are you alive? Are you f-cking with us?” Logan joked on camera.

Logan deleted the video — titled “We found a dead body” — amid furious public backlash to the video. He later announced he was taking time off to “reflect” as the controversy raged.

Paparazzi photos show a lone security vehicle parked outside Logan’s gated seven bedroom, nine bathroom mansion.

According to published reports, Logan’s 15-million strong Youtube membership consists of mostly adolescents and teenagers.

Japan leads the world in suicides with an average of 29,000 suicides a year for 3 consecutive years.

    F#@! Him.

  • Bossy704

    I’m sure he was high as hell when he did that video. Another victim of white privilege. Most folks have enough sense to respect the dead.

  • klwbaby

    Unless he was live, he could have easily edited the video then posted it on his page without showing that person.

  • Dystaney Kimble

    He just seems like he hates that his money will be affected by all of this .

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Easily .

  • Malcom Flex

    he’s lying for pity points and hes white he’ll be aight. Look how large he’s living. Yall gotta be careful who you click on see how may fools click on his shitz?! I’d like to see Miss Sandra Rose live large like that!

  • Malcom Flex

    Why?

  • We Can Do This

    29k suicides a year! Wow!

  • BlahBlahBlah

    bcuz, do we really care about this cultural inequality?

  • Desiree Edwards

    I bet he won’t mock the dead again! Karma’s a bitch then you die!

  • Japan needs Jesus

    What is going on in Japan? A suicide forest and 29 thousand suicides a year. That’s insane.

  • SG

    THAt is unreal!!

  • more

    Absolutely bizarre if this was in the US government officials would have stepped in at this point

  • We Can Do This

    I just looked into what were some of the factors and unemployment is key.

  • klwbaby

    Many of those suicides are being committed by teens and young adults. The pressure their parents put on them to succeed have driven a lot of them to kill themselves instead of bringing home a B on a report card.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    6.5 million dollar home?? I need to do stupid YouTube videos.. sheesh.

  • NeverSurprised

    In Japanese culture, success is always the goal. To be the best. To fail is to dishonor the family name. They commit suicide because they believe in “Death before Dishonor.”

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    The Japanese don’t view suicide like our culture does.

  • Ms Thang

    I couldn’t get pass 12 million in 2016. I knew they got paid but damn

  • Ms Thang

    I couldn’t get past that part ???

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    You beat me to it. I was just getting ready to type the same thing.?

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Ikr. He’s only 22 years old too.

  • NeverSurprised

    A SIX year old made $11 million on YouTube last year by reviewing toys. He started at 4 years old.

    And insensitive as hell.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Yesss. I had read that about a couple of weeks ago.

  • NeverSurprised

    I’m fascinated by most Asian cultures, but especially by the inscrutable Japanese.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Yes. I am too,very fascinated by Asian cultures. Particularly the Japanese.

  • NeverSurprised

    I posted about it last week just to show folks that anything is possible in this day and age. So much money to be made (legally) if you just hit upon the right formula and work, work, work.

  • Ryan

    And he didn’t monetize the body video, but he did monetize the b.s. apology video. So it’s going up (at least this quarter anyway). His endorsement deals might be in danger.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    I had read it on another news site.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    I had read an article that stated Japanese authorities are wanting to question him.

  • NeverSurprised

    He (and his parents) made Forbes’ list of most successful YouTube bloggers. What’s interesting is, the site really isn’t that great. The parents said it started when he (Ryan) saw other toy reviewers and asked if he could do the same. But he isn’t reviewing toys so much as just playing with them.

    With the site’s success, they now get thousands and thousands of dollars worth of toys for free because he has so many subscribers (10 mil) and the toy manufacturers really want him to showcase their toys. The $11 mil is in ad revenue coming in at $1 mil a month, before taxes. The parents produce the videos which really look kind of low budget, so they don’t really have very much overhead.

    OT: Sandy, did you see this marvelous story?

    A Texas middle school was having a “Breakfast With Dads” event and because many of the students are low income, one of the teachers was afraid some would not have fathers to attend the event with them. She posted a request for 50 volunteers from the community, men who could stand in for the absentee dads.

    Instead of getting 50 respondents, SIX HUNDRED MEN showed up! All ages, all races — men who just wanted to step in and help.

    I think we often forget just what MAGNIFICENT CREATURES men can be. Many of them hold so much inside, they aren’t always yapping the way we women are, so we forget that they can be warm, loving, caring, generous and kind beings who want to help when given the opportunity. One of my favorite photos from the article is one of the men teaching a young boy how to tie a tie. SOMETIMES I JUST LOVE MEN TO DEATH!!!

    These days, the possibilities are endless. With this kid, everything changed when one of his videos went viral. The rest, as they say, is history.

  • IamAllnatural

    Great story, the pictures made me cry. Our boys definitely need positive men in their lives.

  • dontgetblocked

    Youtube has made these young people rich. Two of the richest Youtubers in England are brothers who parents are from Nigeria: KSI and ComedyShortGamers. CJ So Cool is doing well here in America. I like his family videos but he spends money like a broke negro who just won the lottery. He also just rented a mansion and put a huge sign with his name on front. Then he left his door opened and some middle school kids came in and stole his Rolex, Gucci belts, and his girlfriend’s red bottoms. They skated away with tens of thousands of dollars on skateboards and never got caught. I couldn’t make this stuff up.

  • dontgetblocked

    That’s awful.

  • i troll it like i see it

    All his antics in Japan were disgusting and disrespectful. I had never heard of him before this, and have no idea why anyone even a kid would find him appealing. He was acting like a complete idiot, it wasn’t even comedic, he is not a comedian, he’s just a fool made famous.

  • Locapoca
  • charallday

    That ryans toy review…my son watches him for all the cool toys LOL!

  • pure_rachet

    They don’t have Christianity over there so they don’t view it as a “sin”. At least thats what I heard on the radio.

  • Enoughsaid2020

    All that money, but no commonsense. Now he is a prisoner in his own home. SMH!

    Great game. I feel bad for Jalen smh if the semester hasn’t started yet he should transfer immediately. Losing your job in the biggest game of your career has to hurt.

  • NeverSurprised

    Why? This is America. Anyone who is inventive enough to come up with an idea that is legal and doesn’t exploit anyone, then works hard to bring it to fruition, should be able to make as much money as they want. That”s the beauty of capitalism.

  • Queen B

    Lol damn I never heard of them

    Omg this was awesome! The pictures alone brought tears to my eyes

  • Queen B

    Omg wtf 12 million!!! And im working my ass just to earn a little over 100k a year ? Imma bout to put my kids to work lol

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Good morning doll, congrats???
    Two things:

    1) this young man Jalen Hurts – why didn’t he play? Why is it a big deal he “was first class” in supporting the Hawaiian fellow? Is it a Bledsoe – Brady situation?

    2) let me hold something for my deposit on this girls trip ?????Please & TIA

  • Li

    Yeh that’s sad. But those are the type of ignorant people in America; the same people who watch a 6 year old review toys so he and his mom can earn $11 Million a year. Shameful, and the guy has NO talent beyond Skateboarding and crazy antics. He can’t act, he can’t sing, he can’t teach, nothing outstanding about him.

  • Li

    And NO talent!

  • Li

    Youtube needs to monitor their site closer, it needs to start charging people like Logan to use the site instead of relying on ad revenue.

  • Li

    Yep, even YOU can put up a Youtube video doing silly stuff and get ad revenue.

  • alex

    Unfortunately, it’s not just America, I see the same shit where I live (at least they have to pay more taxes, ha ha).

    I hear you, Queen B! If Logan can have a house like that, I am clearly doing something wrong in life.

  • alex

    Nouveau Riche.

  • alex

    Looks like they surpassed South Korea, who used to have the highest (known).

  • You Could Never

    He played first half. He a long suffering…well to us fans…mukk up. Can’t ever seem to get the ball where it needs to go when pressure is on. Enter Tua. The back up that they gave us small peeks of during past season. We love jalen still. But I’m glad Nick put Tua in. Bc baby we almost didn’t make it.

    Soon as folks pay, will loan you $5 babe. of course I will

    I hope he gets haunted. Japanese ghosts play no games.

    I was just thinking, those spirits in that forest gone be on his ass. Shouldn’t have been hanging (no pun) around that energy in the first place. WHO hangs (again no pun) in a forest KNOWN FOR suicides. It’s like playing in a graveyard.

  • tintin

    i need to go on instagram and youtube and act a fool. people are making money being stupid.

  • Kanyade

    Mercy! I hate I missed this post/discussion.

    I’m glad he’s taking time to reflect and if those around him have any sense, I hope they help him understand the mistake he made–the disrespect he committed in filming a dead body; the irresponsibility!

  • Kanyade

    Oh an after that video, he went on to post/film himself acting a fool in Tokyo. Straight juvenile behavior. Had he gone to Singapore and acted out like he did in the streets of Tokyo, he probably would’ve received a cane-ing. Straight disrespect of culture, of people. Shows how idiotic and immature he is and overall what privilege he enjoys.

  • Kanyade

    I feel like he saw a dead body and thought “more views”, not caring if his audience would be desensitized to that kind of imagery or not.

  • Kayke

    Yup, my toddler put me on to Ryan….. He love him some Ryan….and everyday he comes to me with his mental list of all the toys Ryan done “recommended”. My son wants to do review too now….we just might.

  • Dowoop

    He is not taking time to reflect. He is hiding until people simmer down. He does not care that what he did was irresponsible and disgusting. He just doesnt want to lose his fan base so he will hide out until it blows over.

  • Dowoop

    There are quite a few Christians who if they has killed themselves the world would have been a better place.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    This dude is a straight up idiot.

  • Ryan

    The thing is that those sponsors and ad revenue are what bring in the money.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Love KSI . Vice News had a great documentary he was in. Very inspiring to see somebody break out from the pack and make millions like that.

Then they sent a letter like “you’re suspended in this state.” LOL So I’m all like “So! And. Don’t nobody give a fugg. I won’t be back down there anyway…….” and blip blap bloop. THAT WAS….until I tried to RENEW my now EXPIRED license. They were like “Nope bish. Go take it up with the state you’re suspended in.” LMAO I sent my “hearing by mail” off yesterday begging for forgiveness. LOL

  • Coco_Butter

    Wow that’s amazing. At this point why go to college.

    I bet his parents quit their jobs too

  • Hmmm~?

    I’ve been discussing why white people continuously do things they know they have absolutely no business doing but I always end up silenced. In my opinion, this is what white entitlement truly is. White people will constantly do things they know are against the rules or are socially unacceptable without any thought of potential ramifications because they assume they’ll get off with a slap on the wrist. I’ve witnessed this behavior all my life in person and in the media. Notice how 98% of the hollywood sex abusers were white? White people, especially wealthy white men, believe that they are invincible and therefore do whatever they want. That’s why Logan and his idiotic brother Jake continue to do illegal shit in pretty much all of their videos. They have no fear of potential consequences because they don’t believe there will be any. And while everyone has a moment where we just say F it, I’ve never seen this behavior so consistent in any race other than white people.

  • Hmmm~?

    Right! I know y’all seen the Grudge ?

    You should. That’s how Ryan got started. Told his parents he wanted to do it at age 4 and they gave their full support. Two years later they are raking in a million per month in ad revenue. Our children can do anything if they have our full support.
