A popular YouTube personality apologized for posting a video that showed him making jokes after discovering the body of a suicide victim hanging from a tree in Japan’s “suicide forest.”

22-year-old Logan Paul has more than 15 million subscribers on YouTube. He is self-described as a “kid in Hollywood making crazy daily Vlogs!”

The comedic-style videos don’t appear to have any unifying theme besides a desperation to go viral, ranging from “FISHING FOR MY DOG WITH DRONE BAIT!!!” to “JUMPING TWO SPEEDING LAMBORGHINIS BACK TO BACK!”

While visiting Japan, Paul and some friends went to the Aokigahara Forest, also known as a “suicide forest” because it has become known as a destination for people to take their own lives.
