Celebs July 11, 2018 By Hugo

YouTube star Logan Paul intends to release a documentary about his experiences dealing with the aftermath of the worldwide condemnation that came his way following a video he uploaded in Japan which recorded the body of a suicide victim.

With 17 million YouTube subscribers, Logan Paul's reach goes beyond most vloggers, and it was for these reasons that many came down hard on him. 

In his latest vlog, the star revealed, "All the stuff that went down in January, where I was at in my life and kind of the psyche of what actually happened."

For those unaware of Paul's actions, he and his friends vlogged their escapes through a backpacking trip across Japan. However, not only were they branded disrespectful throughout his entire trip, the immature vlogger dug himself an even deeper hole when he went deep into the Aokigahara forest in the Chūbu region of Honshum.

In a place that has become synonymous with suicide victims- most of whom are male-  the place has been nicknamed 'Suicide Forest' by locals, and as such, attracts significant attention from tourists all over the world. 

Such a morbid fascination, however, led many to believe that Paul deliberately set out to find a suicide victim so he could parade his finding on his channel to gain further publicity.

Naturally, Paul's decision to upload the video and not blur out the victim's face spectacularly backfired and he has since been on numerous television shows to apologize for his insensitivity and gross misjudgment.

As well as a new documentary, the star is also posed to fight fellow YouTuber KSI in Manchester, England, in a bid to claw back some popularity and much-needed respect.

For now, however, Paul and his brother, Jake, another YouTube star, remain two of Hollywood's most derided figures, so much so that we at OMG Lane even included them in an article entitled Hollywood's 10 Biggest Douchebags.
