Jake Paul speaks out about Logan Paul suicide-forest vlog

Plenty of YouTubers have been having their say about Logan Paul's controversial suicide-forest vlog, but what about his brother?

Jake Paul has broken his silence with a 'YouTube, Let's Talk About Brother Logan Paul' video in which he criticses the original video, but also expresses support for Logan.

"I think what Logan did was very, very, very, very wrong, and he made a huge mistake. And not only is he paying for it, but he is learning from it. I think that in no way, shape, or form is suicide a joke or should be made fun of in any, shape, or form," said Paul.

"He did not mean to offend anyone," he continued. "He didn't handle the situation the right way but I know in the back of his head he didn't mean to offend or hurt anybody, or create such a big frustration. And he is honestly, truly, truly sorry."

Paul also promised that Logan will be returning. "He is going to learn from his mistakes, which he has, and be able to bounce back," he said.

That mirrors previous support expressed by the brothers' father Greg Paul, who posted on Instagram earlier this month that "LOGAN WILL BE BACK!" while suggesting that "MISTAKES!! We all screw up. It’s a part of life. Do I agree with everything my boys do. NO!"
