Logan Paul has surprised the online entertainment community yet again after announcing that he will be releasing a documentary about his suicide forest scandal.
Paul, 23, made the announcement during a monthly update vlog on his YouTube channel that boasts over 17 million subscribers.
Paul experienced massive backlash back in January after he decided to film a hanging body in Aokigahara forest, often referred to as the suicide forest, in the Chūbu region of Honshu in Japan.
The controversial vlogger made a handful of attempts to apologize and show remorse but many believed that they were not genuine enough.
The documentary about the scandal, which does not have a title or release date yet, will focus on Paul’s state of mind at the time of the video, and after it, with the entertainer saying it will focus on:
“all the stuff that went down in January, where I was at in my life and kind of the psyche of what actually happened,”
The announcement about the documentary appears in a video titled “WHY I HAVEN’T BEEN POSTING” which can be found below. The announcement comes at the 05:38 mark.
Paul was known for creating daily vlogs that were highly edited and would generally last 10-15 minutes. It is expected that one of the main focuses of the documentary will be the burnout and pressure that this can put on entertainers.
Paul has taken a step back from the daily content in recent months after announcing that he wanted to explore his creativity in a less taxing way.
He has recently taken to streaming on Twitch, working on his music, and will be creating a new podcast called “Impaulsive” very soon.
Bigger than all of these projects, though, is the upcoming boxing fight with KSI at the Manchester Arena on August 25th, which promises to be one of the biggest events and grudge matches in the history of YouTube.
