Logan Paul has come under even more fire after more clips from his trip Japan show him being racially and culturally offensive and using Tokyo has his ‘playground’.
In fact, in the video, it seems he was being completely disrespectful to absolutely everybody he saw.
In the latest clips, you see him throwing PokeBalls at Japanese people, drops his pants in the street, harassing people and cars with a fish and some squid, and he proceeds to buy a Gameboy, before going out and breaking it in the street and then makes an attempt to return it using racist language.
Last week, the Youtube vlogger was forced to apologise after a video he published showed the body of a suicide victim.
Rather than do the sensible thing and switch off the camera and not publish the video, for some reason Logan decided to zoom in on the body and even make jokes about it.
Claiming the video’s intention was to ‘raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention’, Logan has since apologised for his actions and announced he’s taking a break from social media. Good.
So just as I’d hoped he would go away, this second video emerges and it’s all coming back again.
Here’s a compilation of clips from his Japan trip:

In one of the clips he says: ‘I swear Tokyo is just a giant playground. Maybe it’s not. Maybe I should stop. Probably not.’ Yeah, well, probably you should have.
As is understandable, he has now received even more backlash, with one person writing:
It’s very obvious that he was disrespectful at the same time creators who argue that have used his behaviour to mainly complain about strikes and money. Which is just as disappointing. To use your platform for good in this situation one would think to call out our own military.
This is MAD disrespectful, my god. I couldn’t even make it past the first 30 seconds.

It’s not only the way he acted, it’s how he dress, and spoke to everyone, he was disrespectful and just overall rude to the city, to the culture, to the people and more. How does a terrible person like this get so popular and gain EVEN MORE subscribers?!

He is fucking gross. Never heard of him before all of this. Wish I still didn’t know who he was.

Having lived in Japan twice in my life, what he did was beyond disrespectful. They’re a peaceful people and to harass others like that, especially after you said you’d have to “respect their culture”, is horrible.

One person commenting under his video said: Do not come to Japan anymore’
And after Logan received a huge backlash online, Twitter user, Libby, has now exposed the full extent of his ‘despicable’ actions saying he showed no respect by filming a vlog in what’s essentially ‘a renowned mass grave’.
In a thread on Twitter, she wrote:
Logan Paul, a wealthy white American man, walked onto hallowed ground to film a vlog and bank off the – spooky – suicide forest, and then laughed as he traipsed through what’s essentially a renowned mass grave, even as he came across a human body.
Men and women who had parents, siblings, and children of their own, people like you and me walk into that forest feeling as though their lives truly weren’t worth living, feeling so broken down by the world that they couldn’t go on and killed themselves.
The fact Logan Paul followed in their steps for a vlog, to make money, on top of the many millions he already has AND LAUGHED at the sight of a dead person, who was feeling so low they KILLED themselves – it’s deplorable. It is DESPICABLE.
with all that said, here goes:
