Logan Paul, the 22-year-old American YouTube star who recently caught an avalanche of shit for uploading a video in which he finds the body of a man who died by suicide in Japan‘s Aokigahara Forest, is continuing to catch shit for his eminently shit-deserving schtick.
Along with the astonishing video in the suicide forest, Paul also uploaded a video of himself running amok in Tokyo in the most annoying way possible: making a nuisance of himself at Tsukiji Fish Market, carrying a fish and a tentacle around and mashing them against shop windows before leaving them on the back of a taxi, getting in locals’ faces, trying to ride on service vehicles, throwing Pokéballs at people (…yeah) and generally being a fucking berk.
Unsurprisingly, neither Japanese people nor the global community at large is particularly impressed by this show of entitlement and ignorance.
Turns out, Logan Paul’s trip to Japan was problematic for many reasons 😡 pic.twitter.com/yhj2BYgk4G

I couldn’t make it through 60 seconds of this, past him loudly telling a Japanese electronics clerk that a device is “mucho broken-o.” The idea of this maroon becoming an online role model is scarier than anything in this season of BLACK MIRROR. https://t.co/DzPzE5DgGO

This video, in which Logan Paul pretends to catch Japanese people like Pokemon, is incredible. He’s going to cause an international incident. https://t.co/k4XIta5v9q

Logan Paul represents how naive* Americans visit other countries to an extreme level of the spectrum. If u think what he’s doing is disrespectful, think about the next time someone takes a picture of them helping out kids in third world countries and posting it on social media.

It shouldn’t be surprising coming from the bloke who thought it’d be cool to wear a fucking stupid joke hat into the extremely sensitive space of Aokigahara, but it’s still disappointing as hell. This bloke has 15 million subscribers. The future of entertainment is truly bleak.
