Online viewers criticised the video by calling it "disrespectful" and "disgusting".
Logan Paul knew what he was doing. He’s not “sorry”. He disrespected that suicide victim, people with mental illnesses and Japan. Japan has one of the highest suicide rates in the world. He knew what he was doing and I’m disgusted.
There is no official record of how many people have committed suicide in Aokigahara forest in Japan as the government hasn't released any data, but according to reports, more than 100 people have committed suicide in the past few years.
The video was part of vlogs of Logan Paul who is on a trip to Japan with his friends.
According to WHO data, Japan has one of the highest rates of suicide.
