Paul went to a place called "the suicide forest" in Japan. It's infamous for being a place where you can stumble across a dead body. Critics say he and his crew's choices were seriously sickening.

In the vlog, Paul and his entourage are seen preparing to spend a night in the forest, showing off camping gear including “binoculars to see the ghosts” and “a football so we can have fun.” They troop into the woods, before the video cuts to footage of a body hanging from a rope under a tree, filmed at a distance. “Bro, did we just find a dead person in the suicide forest?” Paul asks.

But the vlogger apologized. Defenders say he's only 22 years old, and his intentions were not evil. He says in the video, “Suicide is not a joke. Depression and mental illnesses are not a joke."

In his apology, Paul said he had faced a “monsoon of negativity” and that his intent with the video had been to “raise awareness for suicide and suicide prevention.”
