So for those of you who don't know a notorious YouTube star Logan Paul New Year's Eve filmed the corpse of a guy who had committed suicide in Aokigahara, or the "Suicide Forest", of Japan. In the same video, he goes for extreme levity wearing a Gucci jacket and Toy Story memorabilia, takes a couple of shots of Sake, and of course greets fans because of his word famous renown. He didn't monetize the video (not that the claim isn't a false economy, and he wouldn't make the money up elsewhere), as he was of course trying to raise awareness, and it also reached a top 10 spot of YouTube videos that day - with the tagline and thumbnail of the video implying they saw a dead guy. What the video showed is the is the blurred out image of the actual hanging wound, but it did show the cold purple hands of the unfortunate man. If you want to watch it, I doubt it would scar you - there's the Jojobobo recommendation right there. His target audience are mostly teens, with presumably a fair few of the international fans seeing this video during or before their morning breakfast before it was taken down. The internet's greatest saviour, and man who called a random guy a "nigger" in a live gaming stream, PewDiePie had this decisive reprimand - though while accurate I think was to throw the shade off of him. What's your take on this rich human tapestry of absolute cynicism and monetization? It seems like this forum was born on the back of some cynicism in a way, but now I see stuff like this I can barely stomach it. I would say no trolling, but personally as a bastion of worldliness, even temper and my sheer impermeability to trolling in the first place, I have no worries. EDIT: And if you needed it, a British commentator targeting dodgy YouTube channels (unbiased, obviously), lending his voice. And I don't know what I'm saying here, Logan Paul was obviously a bad man and we can all label him as such, but directly or indirectly monetizing suicide starts to feel a little wrong - doesn't it?
