A Second 'Problematic' Video Of Logan Paul In Japan Has Appeared

YouTuber Logan Paul has come in for more flak online, for a second video he made while in Japan.

Earlier this week, 22-year-old Paul was forced to issue two apologies after showing the dead body of a man in Japan's so-called 'suicide forest'.

Now, a second video has been shared by Twitter account We The Unicorn, showing Paul and his pals walking around Japan - in some parts dressed as a Pokémon character and throwing a Poké-ball at cars/people, smashing up a Gameboy and wandering around with fish waving them at people, all while saying 'it's important not to disrespect the culture'.

The video was shared with the caption: 'Turns out Logan Paul's trip to Japan was problematic for many reasons', and has since been flooded with angry comments from people calling him a 'tool', 'disrespectful' and calls to have him banned from YouTube.

Chrissy Teigen responded to the video saying, 'I thought the suicide video was the stupidest thing he did, but no.'

This latest video has surfaced, as Paul has said he's taking some 'time to reflect', following the massive backlash over his video taken in Aokigahara, the 'suicide forest' at the base of Mt. Fuji.

Paul, initially issued an apology on Twitter, written in the form of a phone note and posted on Twitter, but this was criticised for its inappropriate tone, as Paul highlighted the reach of his channel and ended it with the hashtag #Logangforlife.

So, he recorded a second apology, in which he explained that what he and his friends had discovered in the forest wasn't planned and, as such, their reactions - laughing and joking around - were 'raw' and 'unfiltered'.

"None of us knew how to react, or how to feel," Paul said, before adding: "I should have never posted the video. I should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through."
