Youtube star Logan Paul apologises for uploading 'disgusting' suicide video

*WARNING some readers may find this distressing*

Youtuber Logan Paul has apologised after uploading a video of a man who had died by suicide.

The 22-year-old was on a trip to the "Japanese suicide forest" located at the base of Mt Fuji in Japan, when he came across a dead body of a man.

The vlogger proceeded to record the deceased individual - uploading the footage to YouTube as part of his latest video series.

The video which has since been removed from Youtube, was live for more than a day before being removed. During that time, it was viewed by more than one million people... including many well-known names who spoke out in disgust.

The star has since apologised on Twitter expressing that his intention was never to cause hurt.

The apology has also been hit with backlash, with many people believing his statement is "insincere and fake", fans of the star also spotted friends of Logan smirking and laughing during the footage from the forest and are looking for an apology from all parties.
