If you want to make a video about suicide, then there's nothing wrong with featuring a place that is known for suicides. But I agree, he probably should have edited out the body.

It's exploitative to go there and do this. How can you not understand that?

Not when you're doing a commentary video specifically about suicide, especially when there is a chance you could discourage even one of your viewers from committing suicide. (Not entirely sure if that was the case here though)

As stated earlier, there's no need to visit a site where people are known to take their lives in order to make an anti-suicide video. At that point, you're just doing it for the clicks.

Also, he apparently used the still of the hanging body as the *thumbnail for the video.* And part of the video title was "we found a dead body."

No matter how charitable you're trying to be, there's no way you can justify that as anything but trying to exploit someone's death for views.

Yeah, documentaries about suicide should never do that.

Glad you've finally seen the light.

It must be so freeing to live in your world, where nothing has context, and a click-bait video by a sh*tty YouTube "personality" is exactly equivalent to a well-researched, tastefully-presented professional documentary feature.

My husband watches a lot of music documentaries and stuff on YouTube.

I only go there for the tutorials usually. Taught me out to drain my washing machine.

There's also the kind that do things like go up to unsuspecting women and kiss/grab them without warning.

Honestly most YouTube prank stuff seems like just an excuse to do asshole things on video and try to get out of it by yelling IT'S JUST A PRANK, BRO

"Thankfully", the vast majority of those during the prank/softcore cinema for adult viewing trends from a few years back used paid actors.

I watched a “pranks in the hood gone wrong” video, which was just a stream of people getting ktfo for being arseholes imho.

just goes to show how much this society is going to hell

"hey youtube, you mind if I film a dead body, put it in the thumbnail of the video, and link my merch to said video?"

"sure bud, go ahead! while we're at it, we'll put it in the 'trending' section of youtube for you."

"thanks guys! this isn't against the youtube community guidelines or anything, is it?"

"for you? never. take care!"

gee, i am just antsy to see what this world turns into.

both paul brothers are huge pieces of poo, wastes of oxygen. i hate that they're getting this much attention but i feel like youtube has to do something after this stunt.

The dude said in the video he was doing it just for the haunted aspect, not even suicide, but he changed his tune.

I see nothing wrong with him going there, or filming. I would love to visit the forest myself. What’s wrong is that he recorded the body. One far away shot is one thing, but going up to it closer and filming more? Making it a thumbnail? Wrong. And I hope he learns from it.

he's going to learn from it for the wrong reasons. he doesn't care that he filmed a dead body and exposed the entirety of his young audience to it. he cares because he got backlash for it, and backlash threatens his youtube channel which, in turn, threatens his income.

An actual news site as the source instead of world net daily or some alt-right blog you found through the Drudge Report?

I mean it's FOX news. But still. Shocked.

he's literally mugging and making faces throughout the entire video. the apology is entirely 'me me me and furthermore me'. he's not gonna learn a damn thing because he's a narcissistic sick little creep

Wasn't he making jokes about it and laughing/dabbing/doing the thing he does where he's a child that has no sense of respect or how to not be an obnoxious rude shthead? Looking at just a few clips of him in Japan before this even happened it is showing him running around temples being super disrespectful?
But it's okay for him to do his dab shtick in this suicide place for the epic leiks? Just a problem with showing the body?

Looks like he went into it with the best intentions about informing people about suicide being completely respectful 100%!

Idk YouTube people are these part of that group of kids that have enough views to give each other lambos

I read about them and my head won't ever quite wrap around that I don't think. It's baffling selfmade money but self-made in the most juvenile ways who can be surprised they don't know how to act
