The 22-year-old who has over 15 million subscribers is getting deservedly harsh feedback over a clip he posted from Aokigahara forest, locally nicknamed, "Suicide Forest" at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan.
When contacted by NPR, a YouTube spokesperson said, "Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video".
Paul removed the original video from YouTube, but it remains available online elsewhere.
Although the video has been taken down, segments were still online. "We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center". And his many videos have racked up tens of millions of views. It was the subject of a Vice documentary in 2012, for instance.
In the video, Paul and his entourage are wandering around the woods when they happen across what appears to be a body hanging from a tree.
"Suicide is not a joke", Paul says while filming the body of the victim. I want to apologize to the internet, I want to apologize to anyone who's seen the video, I want to apologize to anyone who has been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. "We came here with the intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest".
"I do strongly believe that you can joke about anything, but I also believe that there is a right way and not the best way to joke about things", Kjellberg said at the time. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke.
YouTube star Laci Green wrote, "logan paul exploiting a suicide victim in Japan to the tune of 6M+ views while youtube demonetizes students protesting in Iran is a ideal example of what a sociopathic garbage fire youtube has become. this industry has no soul left. byeee".
"Where do I begin", Paul wrote on his Twitter page late Monday.
"Let's start with this-I'm sorry", Logan explained in a followup post to his 3.9 million Twitter followers.
In addition to the video itself being incredibly disturbing, the fact that Paul thought it was a good idea to film, edit and then upload the video in the first place is totally baffling.
Eventually, YouTube became Paul's milieu of choice, and there he's posted videos on two channels, one for vlogs, daily video blogs, and another for more rehearsed or highly-produced "official" videos.
But if Paul expected support from fellow social media celebrities, it was notably absent.
Japan has a relatively high rate of suicides, with more than 21,000 a year, according to government data.
