Logan Paul has more than 15 million Youtube subscribers. He has since apologized for the video.

Aokigahara has a reputation in Japan as a place frequented by young people who want to kill themselves. Many believe that the number of suicides committed in the area exceeds 100 some years.

There are even signs in the forest urging people to seek help rather than commit suicide.
