YouTube star Logan Paul is facing heavy criticism after posting a since-deleted video on Sunday of he and his friends discovering the body of a man who apparently died by suicide in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, the BBC is reporting. Paul has more than 15 million subscribers, many of whom are young teenagers, and apologized late Monday after receiving criticism from mainstream actors and comedians like Anna Akana, Sophie Turner and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, who is not related to the internet star.
