Controversial YouTuber and viral star Logan Paul recently announced his return through Twitter after his recent scandal in Japan, and has since returned to Youtube with a new vlog.
He claims that “I’m not disgraced, I took a break” and that he’s still “lit as f**k” and with 16.5 million subscribers, that may very well be the case
Logan was subject to huge backlash last month when he uploaded a video of himself in Japan’s Aokigahara forest (more famously known as the Suicide Forest) and discovering an actual dead body hanging from a tree. He was also found to be responsible for constant inappropriate behaviour during his trip to the country, such as throwing dead fish at people’s faces, and running through the streets dressed as Pokemon, which would definitely place him in the obnoxious jackass category.
He apologised shortly after the incident, and shared a video on suicide prevention. Despite that, people are still not happy with him and even more so now that he’s uploaded a new vlog.
The video begins in the style of a Hollywood Blockbuster trailer, describing Logan as a “legend”, “myth”, “maverick”, before talking about Logan “hiding his face from paparazzi” and “swallowing his tears on social media like a little baby backpick”
Logan then argues with the narrator, arguing: “What do you mean ‘disgraced’? I’m not disgraced, boy – I took a break. I’m still lit as f**k. What other YouTuber do you know that can take a three week break and still gain million of subscribers?”
As to why anyone in their right mind would still be subscribed to him after that incident is beyond us. Thankfully though, YouTube cut him off from their top advertising program, prompting Logan to pathetically attempt to get money by screaming at viewers to purchase his merchandise.
He was also in recent headlines when he went skydiving and his parachute didn’t open. He shared a photo of the faulty parachute on Twitter, and said that his life was ultimately saved by a second chute.
“Here’s a photo of my empty pack after I had to cut away my main parachute because it didn’t open” the caption read. “I can tell you – the feeling of the blue reserve parachute opening and functioning properly was miraculous. This has never happened to another student at this school. LP lives on.”
Here’s the exact tweet below, just with terrible spelling and grammar. Looks like someone flunked English at school.

If anyone’s wondering what the ever-so-charming brother Jake Paul is up to these days, he recently came under fire for rapping the N-word in a freestyle rap video. Yep! Looks like neither of them can’t go a month without causing problems for other people.
There you have it, the controversy of these two brothers, and just why people continue to watch them, sort of sums up the new generation of kids these days, doesn’t it? Slightly worrying, but hey, aren’t the Paul brothers just fantastic? Hmmm…
