Update: Logan has now deleted the video.

Logan Paul is facing a massive backlash after filming the real body of a person who had recently committed suicide in the infamous 'suicide forest' in Japan. We have made a point of not linking to the video, nor have we included any images of the body.

Logan filmed the body as part of a vlog he was filming in the forest. He also included an image of the deceased person in the thumbnail of his video. The thumbnail shows a partially censored image of the body next to his own shocked face. Although the body is censored, it can still clearly be seen in the thumbnail.

YouTube has not, at the time of writing, restricted the video in any way, despite the graphic content. It is not known at this time who the deceased person is.

Viewers are stunned and outraged

YouTubers are also protesting the video
