Logan Paul, one of YouTube’s biggest stars, recently visited Aokigahara, which is known as the “suicide forest.” There, he appears to have encountered a dead body that he filmed and uploaded.

Paul’s vlog featured footage of the body with the face blurred out.

“This is not clickbait. This is the most real vlog I’ve ever posted to this channel,” Paul says in the clip’s intro (via Select All). “I think this definitely marks a moment in YouTube history because I’m pretty sure this has never hopefully happened to anyone on YouTube ever. Now with that said: buckle the fu__ up, because you’re never gonna see a video like this again!”

However, besides filming the actual body, Paul and members of his team certainly seemed to make light of the situation (here is an edited recap of their reactions), joking around. In the clip, for example, the BBC reports that one of group member says off camera he “doesn’t feel good.” To which Paul replies, “What, you never stand next to a dead guy?” He laughs after that.

YouTube star Logan Paul, who caused an international controversy last week when he made a film inside Aokigahara, known as Japan’s “suicide forest,” has had a lucrative ad deal cancelled, while all of his original YouTube Red deals are now on hold.

On January 9, YouTube released a statement acknowledging the outcry, and promising that steps would be taken: We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we’re sure you do too. The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences.

Took them a very long time by normal YouTube standards.

I wonder how much money they made off of the views in the time since it was published.
