So Logan Paul, the brother of Jake Paul, went to Japan's infamous suicide forest and discovered a dead hanging body. Yes, it was real and the young man appeared passed that morning. He filmed the body, included it in his thumbnail for his video, and posted the video on his YouTube channel. It stayed up for a day or two before he willingly took it down himself, despite it being flagged and reported to YouTube numerous times.
Logan has since apologized, more than once, and the backlash against him is getting worse, but now people are petitioning for his channel to be taken down. People are claiming his written apology (above) was self righteous and insincere, but he did post a video apology about an hour ago.
Several YouTubers like Jaclynn Glenn, Boogie2988, pewdiepie, and especially those from the horror community like Rob Dyke, are worried what backlash this will have on other creators. The horror community, like those who narrate horror stories, along with other creators have faced demonetization of their videos, deletions of their channels, and loss of views for much smaller things.
He has over 15 million subscribers and his fan based tends to be under the age of 18, especially the ages 12-15 years old. Should he lose his channel?

Sorry, forgot, the main issue people are having with the video is that he laughed and made jokes in the video about the young man.
