Logan Paul's Timeline Of Bad Decisions

Logan Paul's Timeline Of Bad Decisions

He really doesn't learn, does he?

What's Trending via YouTube

Logan Paul has been all over the news recently. Paul, the 22-year old YouTube star who started out on Vine, has created lots of controversy over his video he made in Japan's Aokigahara forest, where he showed and made fun of a suicide victim. While this content would be shocking for someone of any age, the video is especially scandalous because his viewers mainly consist of young teens.

This isn't the only reason why Logan Paul is a terrible influence to his young viewers. He has done several other things that have painted him in a negative light.

February 22, 2014

For a video, Logan Paul broke into a woman's car in a Walmart parking lot. The woman was in her car and ask Paul to leave, believing that he wanted to cause her harm, but he refused. According to a press release, "Paul was charged with three offenses — criminal mischief, menacing behavior, and disorderly conduct," and needed to pay a $150 fine and do 75 hours of community service.

September 29, 2017 - Trouble in Italy

Logan posted a video claiming he got arrested by Italian police for flying a drone in area where drones couldn't be flown. However, because of the way the video was edited, many people believe he posted this just for the views and wasn't actually arrested. Regardless, he believes it's cool to show his viewers that being arrested is okay.

December 31, 2017 - The Suicide Forest Video

The video has been taken down, but that doesn't change the fact almost everyone has heard about this incident. Paul and his crew headed into the supposedly-haunted Aokigahara forest, where they found a dead body. In the video, Logan is seen stifling laughs.

The video has received criticism from politicians, celebrities, other YouTubers, and the general public for the insensitivity of the video. There were even several petitions started to kick Logan Paul off of YouTube. Because of the negative press, Logan took a month-long break from social media, excluding the suicide awareness video he made in late January.

February 5 , 2018 - The Tide Pod Tweet and Tasered Rats

With the tide pods memes that became extremely popular in January came the tide pod challenge. The challenge consists of putting Tide Pods in your mouth and popping them. This is extremely dangerous and landed 87 people in the hospital in January of 2018, compared to the 53 total in all of 2017, according to the American Association of Poison Control Centers.

Logan Paul to happily playing along with this in front of his young viewers could be really dangerous. By the time he tweeted this, there had already been many news stories about the dangers of the Tide Pod Challenge and YouTube was doing what is could to stop the challenge from gaining more popularity. Paul apparently did not get the memo.

On the same day as his tide pod tweet, Logan released his first video in a month. In this video, Paul finally got his ad revenue cut after tasering two dead rats and laughing gleefully during one of his newest videos where he pretends to be washed up on a desert island. YouTube said that because of his previous behavior and how this video was on the line for crossing their advertising revenue policies, that it was finally time to give Logan Paul a severe punishment.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
