Popular social media star Logan Paul raised quite a few eyebrows this week when he decided to post a video blog on YouTube that showed the body of a recent suicide victim.
And now, the 22-year-old is doing everything he can to try to recover from the fallout — but not everyone is having it.
According to earlier reports, the video was taken in Japan’s infamous “suicide forest” near Mount Fuji, and featured Paul and his friends laughing and joking after they stumbled upon the body of a hanged man.
At one point he asks the corpse, “Yo, are you alive? Are you f*****g with us?”Omeir/Facebook
The video was taken down hours later, but the damage was already done. Paul was heavily criticized by fans and celebrities alike for his decision to film and post the video.
Some even called for YouTube to take down his entire channel.
And now, even Danielle Bregoli (aka the infamous “Cash Me Outside” girl) has a message for the YouTube star, according to TMZ.
The fiery 14-year-old, who often sparks controversy of her own on social media, told the website that she was horrified by Paul’s decision to post the video.
Bregoli said that she understood why the social media star wanted to document his trip in a video blog, but said that his footage of the suicide victim went too far.
She told TMZ:
“I think that’s kind of disgusting that you’re going to sit there and talk about ‘Oh, depression is a sad thing’ and going on this rant about it. And then you’re just going to stop and start laughing.”
Paul posted both a video and written apology following the fallout from the video blog, which he titled “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest.”

Paul claimed that he was attempting to draw attention to suicide prevention when he posted the controversial video.
But Bregoli said his apology wasn’t good enough.
The teen told TMZ:
“If you kill someone and apologize for, does that make it okay?”
The “Cash Me Outside” girl said she used to hang out with the Youtuber, but it doesn’t look like they’ll be spending much time together after this.
