What did Logan Paul’s video show?
I know that most of you are familiarized with a situation about Paul Logan “suicide” a couple of days ago. Watching all these articles, YouTube videos, social media judgments, forced me to think about it and investigate more about this topic and find out more about Logan Paul. For all of you who are not familiar with the situation, I’ll try to explain as clearly as possible, make it short and clear.
Logan Alexander Paul (Born April 1, 1995) is an American vlogger and actor. He first gained fame through videos shared on the internet video service VINE. Paul later branched out into acting in television and films. He has also started his own brand called Maverick, named after his parrot. According to Forbes YouTuber earned a staggering £9.25m ($12.5m) last year alone. He has a reported net worth of £11.1m ($15m).
So, basically, Logan found a dead body in Japan to be precise in Suicide Forrest where, every year, approximately 100 people commit suicide. So he decided to stay overnight, but something else happened.He found a dead body. He was shocked at first, but decided to go up to the body, filmed the dead man, makes really weird jokes about it. It’s the things that you expect to see in the dark side of the internet not on youtube if you know what I mean. I understand there’s always a challenge for him, what the next big thing he can do, what’s gonna draw more people into his channel. But Logan made a terrible mistake by filming that, later he uploads new apologies for video where you can see at first hand what actually happened.
SUICIDE IS NOT THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEMS!
You are at the end of your rope, and you can’t take it any much longer. You are in pain, and you are suffering, and you feel there is no hope. The first thing that you need to do is to seek the services of a professional counselor, talk to someone, your brother, sister, parents, teacher. One of the most difficult aspects of depression is the feeling of isolation and the false belief that you are the only one that is suffering from this affliction.
In many cases suicide seems like the easiest option. Your mind is clouded to the point where you can’t see any other way out.
Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 15 to 24-year-olds and the sixth leading cause of 5 to 14-year-olds. Suicide accounts for twelve percent of the mortality in the adolescent and young adult group.
On average, 1 person commits suicide every 16.2 minutes.
