Jake Paul Stands By Brother Logan Paul After Suicide Forest Video Scandal

Jake Paul is sticking by his older brother Logan Paul, following his video scandal.

In a new video, Jake addresses the situation surrounding his brother, who was at the center of controversy with his most recent video where he showed the body from an apparent suicide in Aokigahara, the forest surrounding Mt. Fuji in Japan.

“I wanted to let the situation have some time to breathe. I know Logan was going through a lot and everyone was talking about it and it didn’t feel right to comment on it right away,” he says at the bitter end of the new video. “But as his brother and as someone who knows Logan the best, I do feel it’s necessary to say something about it,.

He continues, “I think what Logan did was very, very, very, wrong, and he made a huge mistake. And not only is he paying for it, but he is learning from it. I think that in no way, shape, or form is suicide a joke or should be made fun of. I don’t think it’s right what he did, at all.”

“I know Logan more than probably anybody else and I do know though that he did not mean to offend anyone and I can tell when he’s in shock and he didn’t handle the situation the right way, but I know in the back of his head, he didn’t mean to offend or hurt anybody, or create such a big frustration. And he is honestly, truly, truly sorry.”

Jake also said that this isn’t going to hold Logan back from returning.

“I also know how strong of a human being he is so to see him like that, it was sad to me but I think for the Logang and all of his supporters since he is that strong person, he is going to again learn from his mistakes which he has, and be able to bounce back,” Jake says. “He’s my brother and I love him and brothers always have to have each other’s backs,” Jake said.
