Logan... just back off for a few months we're sick of hearing about you.

Moron/good guy.. easy to get confused.

Too much time on your hands Logan. Try doing something constructive with your life rather than "feed the screen" Youtube machine.

loser

He is just getting back what he set out. That's Karma.

You don't laugh at someone who is experiencing depression.

Much more if they're dead... So insensitive...

Boo hoo, get a proper job you waste of space.

Instead of thinking twice or even times before you post anything Logan why not just quit posting anything, you're just contributing to the dumbing down of this planet with your mindless garbage.

If he becomes an advocate for greater mental health support, continues to work for suicide prevention, and campaigns for greater understanding of depression, then something good will come of it.

Hillarious reading posts denegrating Logan for getting rich and famous off YouTube. He's undoubtedly wealthier than all those advising him to "get a real job."

YouTube star Logan Paul describes himself as a "good guy who made a bad decision"

Has he seen his own channel? Congratulations to him for...whatever. Making money, I guess. But he ain't a good guy. He's a jerk.

Guys a narcissistic sociopath who showed his true colors.

TommyJones,

You’re obviously a Great Cheeto supporter. Afterall, he claims to have more money than you. As for Logan, this has increased his exposure to peons like myself - Who make less money than him - who has never heard of the moron or the good guy who makes bad decisions. I’ll probably not be checking out his channel though, as he makes more money than me.

Having learned that people that constantly promote themselves a " Good guy " or " Honest" are not what they believe they are, they're what they hide. Thinking for Logan Paul this probably won't change.

He also claimed to be a "victim". I guess by spending so much time on YouTube and social network sites you can end up alienated from the real world and failure to understand that comments and posts can cause hurt and harm to others.

I totally agree with Tommy. The guy have made heck money than you and me so it's kind of pointless to tell him to get a "real" job.

That aside, the guy's a jerk and he could sit right next to Julien Blanc as equals. Hard to tell who's worst.

YouTube is just as bad as he is for not only allowing it, but doing nothing until there was an uproar, then doing nothing of meaning after. A suspension is not punishment enough -- they want the millions in ad revenue Logan generates, and that means more than any message he gives either way.

Thought 1: Good. He deserves fallout.

Thought 2:

 "good guy who made a bad decision"

This means he's not taking responsibility for his series of videos effectively harassing random Japanese people. A "good guy" doesn't take advantage of a society like that.

Thought 3: A lot of people are making fun of him for being a Youtuber. That's a mistake. There are loads of people using YT as a platform for genuinely informative, entertaining, and enriching content. Just not him.

Thought 4:

Absolutely. YouTube the medium is great. YouTube the company is kinda terrible.

Unfortunately hate brings $$$. Go and look at the fortunes some of these reality stars make though 90% of comments about them are negative.

Logan Paul describes himself as a "good guy who made a bad decision"

More accurate description would be an insensitive, up himself jerk , who granted made a lot of money through his dumb videos ( just checked out some of the stuff he did to random people in Japan and it more than shows him for the twit he is, and its the first and last time I,ll ever look at his channel ). That he has so many followers is a sad reflection on what passes as "entertainment " these days.

True, but is that $$$ a reflection of their value or a reflection of the degree to which they exploit an emerging media environment?

Most make their media through advertising. Advertisers pay for page views or impressions, because that's easier to track than the degree to which a viewer engages with an ad's content. I atrongly suspect advertisers who dump money into ads on channels like Paul's are going to realize they're wasting their money on ads that are no more effective than the TV commercials we've all been trained to ignore.

FFS, please stop making stupid people famous!

6 months ago, no one ever heard or knew of his name. In 6 months, no one will remember him. Next topic.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

his worth over 11 million $ if anyone cares.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

This guy is a crazy he actually said the guy hanging died so logan could change people. ..

2 ( +2 / -0 )

It's clear that a lot of people mistook my previous post as supporting Logan. I don't.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

A cynically callous social media parasite.

Motivated purely by misery, of the most despairingly venerable of the society's  lost anguished.

He actually assumes the persona, to identify his misfortune as a victim. Another insincere asinine ill treatment of the deceased

Callously calculated to hedge his ill gained revenue. Shame on YouTube
