YouTuber Logan Paul apologizes for sharing video with dead body hanging in forest

Posted: Updated:

TOKYO (AP) - American blogger Logan Paul has apologized after getting slammed for a video he shared on YouTube that appeared to show a body hanging in a Japanese forest known as a suicide spot.
  
He posted an apology on his Twitter site Tuesday, saying, "Where do I begin. Let's start with this. I'm sorry."
  
Although the video has been taken down, segments were still online. Critics, who have also gone online, say what was offensive was Paul's giggling and joking about the body.
  
The video shows Paul, who has millions of Twitter followers and YouTube subscribers, going on a trek with friends in Aokigahara forest, near Mount Fuji.
  
He seems aware that the site is sometimes chosen for suicides, but is surprised to come across what appears to be a hanging victim.
