Supercut of Logan Paul’s Japan visit shows his true colorsOn January 6, 2018 by Lucius
Like any vlogger, Logan Paul has always wanted to be the center of attention, but now that the spotlight is on him after he released a highly insensitive video involving suicide, he may be regretting some of the steps he took to get there.
A supercut edited and released by We The Unicorns on Friday from Paul’s visit to Japan highlights some of the many antics he and his team pulled during their trip.
The cut includes Paul and gang running around the streets of Japan dressed in a kimono and kasa, smashing Game Boys in a public market, throwing Pokéballs at police, pedestrians, and cars, taunting people with raw fish, and just generally being a totally disrespectful child.
It should be said that this type of behavior is nothing new for Paul, it’s kind of his thing. He’s gone relatively unnoticed by those out of the loop of YouTube vlogging culture, and has gained a mass following while doing so. But since the backlash, more have begun to take note of his behavior and influence. Paul has since announced he’s taking a break from his daily vlogs “to reflect.”
While some called for YouTube to completely shut down Paul’s channel over the suicide video, his base of loyal teen and tween followers known as the Logang seem unfazed. In fact, Logan’s YouTube channel netted over 80,000 subscribers on Wednesday, according to YouTube analytics site SocialBlade.
While the bad press doesn’t look good for Paul’s image, it’s unclear if his antics will affect his bottom line. Given the loyalty of his fans and the nature of YouTube, probably not.
