YouTubers have been publicly criticising Logan Paul after he posted a vlog containing footage of the body of someone who had recently taken their life.

The YouTuber shot the now deleted video in Japan's Aokigahara (known as "suicide forrest" due to the number of people who take their lives there) and posted it on YouTube, with the body included in the thumbnail.

Jacksepticeye, Nathan Zed and TomSka are just some of the YouTubers who have expressed their outrage at the hugely insensitive video, taking to Twitter to air their anger.

The video, which was titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest…" reportedly gained 6.2 million views and over half a million 'likes' before it was deleted on Monday night. Logan Paul has since posted his own apology, writing; "I didn’t do it for the views. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet... I intended to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention."
