Ban Logan Paul from Youtube

This petition had 856 supporters

On January 2, 2018, the popular Youtuber Logan Paul posted a video about entering the "Suicide Forest" in Japan.  His intent with this video was to do a spooky vlog, but he ended up exploiting a man who he found dead by suicide. 

Paul has a lot of influence over children in the Youtube community.  Many of his fans are quite young and this video is a disgusting display of his misuse of the platform to get views.  These children who watch him might not realize, but this video was all about sensationalizing suicide.

Paul may have made an apology, but most of it was him boasting about how popular he is and how he didn't realize that exploiting someone who committed suicide would have negative results.

I have personally struggled with suicidal thoughts and depression for most of my life and know many friends and family members who deal with the same.  This content is extremely inappropriate for Youtube, especially since it is sourced out children, who are very impressionable and vulnerable to sensitive content.

I believe Youtube should ban Logan Paul because of his utter disregard to such a sensitive issue and his poor attempt at apologizing for such a heinous video.
