YouTuber Logan Paul uploads footage of dead body in forest in Japan

YouTube star Logan Paul believes he deserves a second chance two weeks after posting a video of a dead body on his channel.

The 22-year-old vlogger spoke to TMZ about the situation at LAX, stating he believed he was treated "fairly."

When asked if he deserves a second chance, Paul said, "Everyone deserves second chances, bro."

People on social media were not thrilled with Paul's assumption that he'd get a second chance.

One user said "his second chance was not to upload the video after editing it," while another explained that nothing is "deserved" it's "earned."

Paul thinks he will eventually be back in the public's good graces.

He added that he's learned "everything" and "so many things" from the backlash.

When asked if there he would be sending a message to YouTube, Paul said "It's coming."

The vlogger also alluded to having a backup plan if the vlogger career doesn't work out with clothing.

Paul came under fire for posting a video of a dead body to his YouTube channel while visiting Aokigahara - a place in Japan known as the "suicide forest."

The video was seen as insensitive to the victim and the victim's family.

Paul issued two public apologies since posting the video.
