The YouTuber is still recovering from a firestorm of criticism after he posted a video of a man who committed suicide in a Japanese forest earlier this year
Paul issued an apology for his video in early January, saying, “I’ve made a serious and continuous lapse in my judgment, and I don’t expect to be forgiven.”
“There’s a lot of things I should’ve done differently, but I didn’t. And for that, from the bottom of my heart, I am sorry,” Paul said.
Paul said that he believes his experience with the controversial Japanese suicide forest video “happened for a reason.”
He told GMA that he wants to “take this experience, learn from it, spread the message the right way about suicide prevention and suicide prevention awareness.”
