Logan Paul reveals one YouTube video that was so bad he had to delete it

In his appearance on Russell Brand’s ‘Under the Skin’ podcast, Logan Paul revealed that he recently had to remove one of his old YouTube videos because it was so bad.

In the past, Paul has made some controversial content, and ultimately he paid the price for it. After his infamous ‘suicide forest’ video in January 2018, he had made headlines across mainstream press for all the wrong reasons.

However, that wasn’t the only issue that Logan believes made people question his content, as he recently watched one video that he so clearly regrets that he had to remove it from YouTube entirely.

Logan’s appearance on Under the Skin gave him a chance to speak more candidly about who he is as a person.

Discussing watching some of his old videos back, Hollywood star Brand asked him what he had watched, and Paul was brutally honest with the host and himself.

“This one was bad,” he said, taking a drink to compose himself for the story. “I had to remove it from YouTube, actually. I faked my death in front of my fans. Young fans.”

Paul explained the video to Brand. “Fans realized where I lived and they would wait for me to come out. One day, I was like, ‘I’m going to teach them a lesson not to spy on people.’ So I had my friend come up behind me with a shotgun, and another friend to splatter ‘blood’. The more I talk, the more I realize how blatantly inappropriate this is.”

Logan looked uncomfortable explaining the video, and you can see he clearly knows he made a misstep by pranking his fans in such a way.

He did try to justify it somewhat, though. “If the fans weren’t so young, I don’t think this would have been that bad. But the fact that they were children… It’s not great.”

Russell does almost back him up, too, saying that as there are no rules on the medium he was using, it can get a little confusing.

Throughout the rest of the video, Logan Paul discussed his aspirations of going to Hollywood to become an actor and how he believes his tough upbringing shaped who he is today.

Logan is the first major YouTube personality to appear on the Under the Skin podcast, which is usually reserved for academics or celebrities with staunch opinions on various issues surrounding politics, ethics, race and society among other things.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
