Logan Alexander Paul (born April 1, 1995) is an American actor, director, internet personality, screenwriter, rapper, and minor boxer. Paul became famous through his videos shared on former internet video service Vine. Paul's television and movie work includes guest appearances on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Weird Loners, and appearances in movies The Thinning and The Space Between Us.
On December 31, 2017, Paul uploaded a vlog to his YouTube channel depicting the recently deceased corpse of a man who had committed suicide by hanging in Aokigahara, Japan. The video gained 6.3 million views within 24 hours of being uploaded. Paul was criticized for posting the video by celebrities and politicians. Paul removed the video from YouTube and publicly apologized for the video, addressing his fans, the family of the suicide victim, and anyone who watched the video. He admitted he was in the wrong when he uploaded it and that at the time he didn't have the schema to see the consequences of his actions. In 2018, Paul fought in a boxing match against YouTube star KSI, with the bout ending in a draw, with his brother Jake fighting on the undercard.
