Toxic YouTube Vlogger Logan Paul body language shows insincerity in apology

Screen Shot 2018-01-06 at 2.01.22 AMLogan Paul is a YouTube  celebrity for his who showed his true vapid character when he went into  Japan’s “suicide forest,”  and discovered a lifeless body hanging from a tree. Apparently a man had committed suicide.  Logan and his crew continued to film this horrible situation, which was bad enough. But what was worse was Logan Paul’s reaction to the tragedy.

He mugged for the camera, had over the top expressions, giggled, laughed and treated this very serious situation as a complete joke. It was appalling to watch. The insensitivity of Paul is what even his loyal fans have reacted negatively towards.

Only becuase of the backlash, he took the film down. he also made a video where he apologized. But his body language showed it was insincere.  It too, was phony in terms of emotion as he repeatedly mentioned that he apologized to his sponsors.

He was NOT sorry at all based on his body language and facial language.  He was sorry that the public reacted so vehemently towards him.

 

He begins  his apology as he pretends to chokes back tears, his speech stilted and stifled.  When he says in his apology video “The reactions you saw in the video were raw and unfiltered,”   that said it all. If that was a raw and unfiltered reaction it showed his inhumanity and obnoxiousness as a human being.

His next statement, “We didn’t know how to react” is also damaging to hin. No one “knows” how to react. But one does know that when there is a tragedy you don’t laugh and make a joke out of it and make light of the loss of someone’s life.  

When he says” from the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry,” there is nothing further from the truth. he is not sorry for what he did. he is sorry that the public turned on him and rejected him for being so insensitive and callous.

Logan looks away from the camera and there’s no emotion in his voice. He says his reactions are raw and unfiltered, but it’s really ‘raw and unfiltered’ of someone who has no class or dignity. Any human being would not make a joke or make fun out of this. He should have shown decency and compassion for a dead human being.”

Logan continues, barely speaks above a whisper as he sayd. “I want to apologize to the internet, I want to apologize to anyone who’s seen the video,” he says. “I want to apologize to anyone who’s been affected or touched by mental illness, or depression, or suicide. But, most importantly, I want to apologize to the victim and his family.  This is obviously something perhaps his handlers or legal team told him to say as it did NOT sound sincere at all. 

Throughout his apology he appologized to his sponsors several times which made it obvious as to why he made the apology in the first place. It was to appease his sponsors so they wouldn’t cut him off financially. It was sickening to watch him pander to them.

 He id not come across sincere. And, that is  what people are reacting to. He has no respect for somebody who’s passed away and it’s such a horrible thing. The body language is not good. He’s insincere. You cannot fool the public. They feel it. He comes across cocky, obnoxious and disrespectful. This is so serious. Someone’s life is over and he’s acting like this is a joke.
 Logan ends his video with this: “The goal of my content is always to entertain. To push the boundaries, to be all-inclusive. In the world I live in, where I share everything I do, the intent is never to be heartless or cruel, or malicious. But his intent is to be heartless because that is who he is as she showed his true colors under the circumstances. Circumstances are what show your  true character. And she showed extremely low character.
He said that ” I don’t expect to be forgiven. I’m just here to apologize. I’m ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to be better. I will be better. Thank you.” The tone in which he said these words were also insincere sounding. He is not ashamed of himself. He is just ashamed and disappointed the public didn’t like what he did.
Through making this statement, Logan is  trying to save face so that his highly popular and successful YouTube channel doesn’t get shut down. This is not a lapse in judgement, it shows his character, the lack of humanity and lack of sensitivity.
When he says he doesn’t expect to be forgiven it’s because he knows his sponsors and investors are about to dump him. There are no feelings in his apology. He looks like a scared deer in the headlights because he knows his career could be over. No matter how you look at it he was making fun of a man who was in such turmoil and had such pain that he ended his life.
Paul was making light of suicide and disrespected the victim found in the forest.  who I think he should be kicked off YouTube entirely as people get kicked off for lesser offenses.
