"This is a first for me. I've never faced criticism like this before, because I've never made a mistake like this before. I'm surrounded by good people and believe I make good decisions, but I'm still a human being. I can be wrong." he wrote.

However celebs such as Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and Sophie Turner have taken the time to call him out on exactly what he's done, and why it's beyond not okay.Disclaimer: some strong language

Dear @LoganPaul,— Aaron Paul (@aaronpaul_8) January 2, 2018
How dare you! You disgust me. I can't believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell.
While fellow YouTuber Phillip DeFranco adds that it's also partly down to YouTube for hosting the video in the first place.
@LoganPaul You're an idiot. You're not raising awareness. You're mocking. I can't believe how self-praising your "apology" is. You don't deserve the success (views) you have. I pray to God you never have to experience anything like that man did.— Sophie Turner (@SophieT) January 2, 2018
While most, the apologies were simply too little too late.
Just remember this. Before all the extended community outrage against Logan Paul's "we found a dead body" video, there was a seemingly uncontested 550-600,000 likes on it.— Philip DeFranco (@PhillyD) January 2, 2018
His core audience doesn't give a fuuuuuuck. Unless youtube does something, this doesn't hurt him.
Someone close to me passed away from suicide last month. I haven't been able to talk about it online until now because it's something I'm still healing from. Hearing what Logan Paul did absolutely breaks my heart. That was someone's loved one he exploited for views. 😔— 🍓Meghan Camarena (@Strawburry17) January 2, 2018
what logan paul did was NOT a mistake. he consciously went to that forest, consciously filmed that body, consciously made fun of it, consciously edited the footage and consciously uploaded it to his channel. he was very aware of what he was doing, this can in no way be justified.— tessa (@nocturnalethan) January 2, 2018
