In a series of tweets on Tuesday, YouTube condemned the disturbing suicide video shared by Logan Paul. 

The YouTube star, who currently has more than 15 million subscribers, shared a video on New Year’s Day of a dead body he found in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, known for the suicides that take place there.

Afterwards, YouTube was criticized by many — including Mashable — for not doing more to prevent these kinds of videos from appearing on the platform. 

A little more than a week later, YouTube released an “open letter” on Twitter: 

As for Logan Paul, he apologized and told the world he was taking a break from vlogging — which was followed by someone releasing a supercut of his incredibly disrespectful behavior in Japan. 

His YouTube channel is still up and running. 

If you want to talk to someone or are experiencing suicidal thoughts, text the Crisis Text Line at 741-741 or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Here is a list of international resources.
