Disgraced YouTube phenom Logan Paul sat down for his first TV interview since he posted a video last month showing a suicide victim in Japan. Following outrage over the video, he issued an apology to his fans and 16 million followers.
He has since donated $1 million to suicide prevention and posted a PSA video about suicide on YouTube.
- Michael Strahan interviewed Paul on Good Morning America, and he opened up about the severity of the blowback he's received.
- “It’s been tough, ’cause ironically, I’m being told to commit suicide myself. Millions of people literally telling me they hate me, to go die in a fire. Like, the most horrible, horrific things.”
- “So, you don’t think the criticism is fair?” Strahan asked.
- “That’s the thing,” Paul said. “I do.”
- He admitted that he wanted to "shock" viewers with the video. When Strahan asked him about the kids who saw the video, Paul defended himself, saying parents should be monitoring their children’s viewing habits more carefully.
- “I’m going to be honest with you, Michael: I think parents should be monitoring what their children are watching more. Every parent I meet whose kids are under the age of 12, I go, ‘Hey, you let your kids watch my stuff?’ And they go, ‘Yeah. What am I going to do?’ But at the same time, it’s not like I am a bad guy,” Paul continued. “I am a good guy who made a bad decision.”
- He added that he hopes he'll be given another chance. “This was a horrible lapse in judgment, and I can, will and am going to learn from it and be a better person.”
