Logan Paul apologized via his Twitter account for the video, which showed him discovering the body in Aokigahara-jukai in Yamanashi Prefecture, a dense forest at the foot of Mount Fuji. Suicide victims are often found in the forest.

The video received many complaints and was deleted.

Paul said he should never have posted the video. He said he did not do it for views, but to raise awareness for suicide prevention.

The 22-year-old’s YouTube channel has more than 15 million followers and was reportedly worth more than 12 million dollars in advertising revenue last year.
