At some point, they happened upon the body of a man hanging from a tree with a noose around his neck.
At this point, Paul laughed.
"This was supposed to be a fun vlog". Through it all, he never stopped recording.
In the video, which Paul deleted Monday, he and his friends found and filmed the body of someone who appeared to have died by suicide in Japan's Aokigahara forest. "I've never faced criticism like this before, because I've never made a mistake like this before.I meant to raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention and while I thought, 'If this video saves just ONE life, it'll be worth it, ' I was misguided by shock and awe, as portrayed in the video".
Another person tweeted, "Logan Paul doesn't deserve to be on youtube". "I don't expect to be forgiven".
The 22-year-old closed his message by saying "I'm just here to apologise". "We came here with the intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest".

Mosher said, "She's my great love, and I'm going to lose her, but I'm not losing her forever". Bridesmaid Christina Karas loved photographing Heather, whom she called an "amazing person".
The bottom line is this: it's incredibly sad and it's a tragic reminder that words hold power and that what we do and say affects other people... from my perspective the story that needs to be told is more about how we need to remind people that how we interact with others and what we say can have a profound effect on others."I should've never posted the video".
That Paul's first reaction is to start telling the camera what things are going through his mind at the moment the group discovers the body is incredibly telling. There's a lot of things I should have done differently, but I didn't.
He also apologized to the victim and his family. "The goal with my content is alway to entertain, to push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive in the world I live in". His thesis? It's actually impressive he hasn't had to say sorry before.
They often pit their viewers against one another by staging a contrived on-camera rivalry to see who can get the most views or collect the most profit in merchandise sales. That said, as far apologies go, this is a surprisingly decent one. Paul violated YouTube's terms of services.
Meanwhile Jas said:"You think an apology will make us forget about what you did? No". He is right to be ashamed of himself, and he is right to assert that those actions are indefensible.
He received a ton of backlash from celebrities and social media users, and now, Chrissy Teigen has taken to Twitter to try and open up a conversation. There's no indication from Paul yet as to if he will take this suggestion, but hopefully he gets the massive hint and stays silent for a long-ass time.
