  1. Ya know something just came to mine: and I’m asking for other people’s opinions. If Logan Paul didn’t get so much criticism after he posted the vid do you think he would of still took it down and realize he was doing to much and apologize like a million times? Just askin 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

  2. ok I'm 12 and I saw the vid and I stoped when I saw the body, and my mum heard it on the news and she said "she would laugh at the fact she saw a dead body and didn't know what to do." my mum thought Logan was dumb to show the vid too thousands of kids my age seeing a dead body. I'm hoping Logan doesn't get banned from YouTube but he made the mistake and no one should stick up for him. if ur part of the logang like this comment.

  3. Btw, once you gain 1 mil subs on YouTube you have a new feature where you can ban people if they don't follow guidelines. Someone with at least 17 million subscribers should ban Logan. They have a valid reason, and then we wouldn't have to deal with him anymore. SO CAN SOMEONE WITH AT LEAST 17 MILLION SUBS PLEASE JUST BAN HIM?!?!?!

  4. Let's be honest here. Him making jokes and laughing beside the corpse was messed up. He's a vlogger and and him filming the corpse for me was fine unless you blurred the face. We see dead bodys on the news, documentaries etc. Most of the dead people in the news that are being broadcasted live would have their faces blurred. I don't understand that when TV programs, and news channels show dead people most of us don't hate on the broadcaster and go on like it's a normal day. But when it comes to Logan doing that people just hop out and start hating on him because they're probably jealous and want him to be taken down. Again let's be honest.
