Logan Paul has broken into the national conversation in a big way this week — and maybe not in the way he hoped. The YouTube star made headlines after walking into Japan’s Suicide Forest, finding a dead body, and proceedig to film and laugh at it. His initial apology was derided for being self-obsessed, and he’s been criticized by everyone from Aaron Paul to Danielle Bregoli — so it is without surprise that Logan Paul has decided to take a break from YouTube in order to reflect. He’s announced his decision in a short tweet.
It’s good for Logan Paul to reflect on the kinds of decisions which led him to record a corpse and put it on his show, and hopefully when he returns, the experience and lessons of this will inform his work and make it — and by definition the people he influences — much deeper and more human than ever before.
What do you think though? Is Logan Paul making the right decision by quitting YouTube? Let us know.
