On Jan. 2, after the rush of criticism, US popular youtuber, Mr, Logan Paul apologized that he had posted a video of a suicide man’s body in Aokigahara tree sea in Yamanashi prefecture on YouTube on Dec.31. Mr, Paul says he does not think he will be forgiven.
In the video, it seemed that Mr. Paul and his friends discovered the dead man in Aokikegara tree sea at the foot of Mt. Fuji which is known to have many suicide people.
It is true that Fuji’s tree sea is one of famous suicide places in Japan so far as to explore the bodies several times a year, but I feel a little bit funny. Is it possible to find quite easily a corpse by accident in this way? This tree sea is like a vast jungle. It is not so easy to find a corpse in jungle. Even one week explore usually failed “Was it really the body of a suicide?” I think that that is very natural question.
Well, the identity of the body is unknown to the public but it seems that the police have already processed it, so if Mr, Logan Paul is not detained by Japanese police, there is no “that” suspicion.
Recently this kind of “incidents” caused by a “luck-pushers” seems to occur frequently but I think that this kind of “incidents” existed from long ago. But recently SNS has developed globally and the impact is much bigger. Especially in his case, he has 15 million followers, so the impact is very big.
