Logan Alexander Paul, known as Logan Paul is a famous youtuber, director, singer and actor . Logan is 22 year old and was born in Westlake, Ohio. Logan also has a brother named Jake Paul and who is also a famous YouTuber. Before coming to L.A., he attended Ohio University to major in Industrial Engineering but ended up dropping out.
Logan's career first started in Vine but then Vine was shut down and he started a YouTube channel named “Logan Paul Vlogs” on September 12, 2016 and started Vlogging everyday. He was already known for his funny videos in Vine, so it wasn’t a surprise when he was getting a lot of subscribers on YouTube. Logan has eight songs and he has directed all of them. He has also came out in some movies and has been nominated for awards but only has won two. Some of the films that he has been in from YouTube Red are “The Thinning” and “Foursome”, but he was cut from “Foursome.” Logan has also been in some Tv shows some of them are “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, “ Weird Loners”, “Stitchers”, and others.
On December 31, 3017 Logan uploaded a vlog like he normally does, but this time it was a little different. He was in Japan and decided to go to the suicide forest and he was vlogging there but he ran into a dead person who had hung himself and instead of raising awareness he started to laugh, and didn’t blurr his face out instead he uploaded the video to YouTube and millions of people saw the video. Most of Logan's subscribers are teens and kids, so it wasn’t a surprise when they saw that very offensive and disrespectful video.
After that video Logans YouTube career changed after that video. He has been getting hate ever since. He tried to make it better by uploading another video but this time a suicide survivor told his story and Logan said that he going to donate a million dollars to suicide prevention.
Ms. Gonzalez, counselor for 2018 and 2020 said “He should have never recorded that and than post it and a 6 year old can see that and I don't think he realized it and trigger kids and him laughing about it really insensitive, that is hurtful”, “Because he is well known and people look up to him and he laughed about it and he should have raised awareness and not record it.” Ms. G has a son and she said she wouldn’t let her son watch his videos. “Because he is well known and people look up to him and he laughed about it and he should have raised awareness and not record it”
Bertha Perez a Senior at Samueli Academy said, “I think he knew what he was doing. He didn’t care enough for the person that commited suicide. I think that he needed to get some sort of punishment towards that video.”, “I think he doesn’t really care about what others think of him. I believe that he has no feelings towards anything else, he just does it for the fame.”
Aileen Corrales a freshman at Samueli Academy, “I think that what he did on posting the video was wrong because suicide is not something funny, that can be joked around with. I feel like he should’ve acted like an adult since he’s one and do better actions than he did because I’m pretty sure the teenagers younger than him wouldn’t of done what he did.”, “When you look at him he seems, like a quiet person, but in most pictures he looks scary since he's always with this mad, scary face. After the video he posted in Japan I feel like he’s not as immature as he should be.”
“He may have gained more if people got more involved with this problem, but overall i think he should have or deserved to have the audience he has”, said Jasmine Diaz a Senior at Samueli Academy and she isn’t wrong Logan Pauls followers increased instead of decreasing now he has 16m subscribers and gained 80,000 subscribers after the suicide forest video.
