Logan Paul Returned To Vlogging And People Have Some Things To Say About It

It’s the YouTuber’s first vlog since he outraged the world with his video of a dead body in Japan’s so-called suicide forest.

Logan Paul made his return to vlogging on Sunday. The video begins with the YouTuber, emerging from a beach cavern, as a dramatic narrator begins talking. The narrator calls him “disgraced,” before the long-bearded Paul challenges him.

“Yo, hold up — ‘disgraced’? Whatchu mean ‘disgraced,’ boy? I took a break,” Paul responds. “Besides, I’m still lit as fuck. What other YouTuber you know can take a three-week break and still gain a million subscribers?”

Logan Paul, 22, returned to YouTube on January 24 following a 22-day hiatus after he was widely condemned for posting footage of a dead body hanging in Japan’s so-called suicide forest.

In that video, Paul sits down with the director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, John Draper, and pledges to donate $1 million to various suicide prevention organizations.

But he made his real return to YouTube on Sunday, with his first vlog since the major controversy, and since the platform cut business ties with him.

Soon after, he goes on to ask people to buy his merchandise so that he can keep his house, saying that “YouTube cut [his] AdSense in half.”

He also says that he’s going to address things he hasn’t during his hiatus from social media. Just not yet.

For Paul, the 12-minute video acts not only as a return but also as redemption. The YouTuber repeatedly cites the hundreds of thousands of abuse messages he has received on social media since he “went dark.”

“No matter how much hate…it’s just noise to me,” he says.

“I will never forget who I am at my core. As long as I’m learning and improving and getting better as a person, then we’re good.

“I fucked up. I’m an idiot…but it doesn’t feel good to have millions of people telling you to die.”

While criticism has now become a big part of the feedback Paul receives, the vlogger appears to be largely unaffected. “Everything I do from this point on will be criticized,” he says. “I’m a very polarizing person.”

“My supporters are a special kind of person who function on a different wavelength to everybody else.”

Really, the entire debacle adds up to one thing: Logan Paul only has more, not less, to talk about now.
