Does Logan Paul Deserve a Second Chance?
Logan Paul, a social media star whose YouTube future is in jeopardy after he uploaded a disturbing video to the video-sharing site, has insisted he deserves a second chance.
Paul, who uploaded a video that seemed to show a man who was dead from suicide (he and his friends are also seen in the clip giggling and making light of the apparent tragedy), was dumped from Google Preferred about a week later, and his other original series are currently on hold. But in a new clip obtained by TMZ Monday (January 15), Paul insists "Everyone deserves second chances, bro."
Paul also says he's got another message coming to YouTube soon. And, he seems to indicate that he's making money off of a clothing company now that his YouTube income has been cut at least fractionally.
Paul posted a formal apology for his video to YouTube on January 2nd, in which he took culpability for his actions.
"I don't expect to be forgiven, I'm simply here to apologize," he said. “I should've never posted the video...I do not deserve to be defended," he said. "I’m ashamed of myself. I’m disappointed in myself. And I promise to do better. I will do better.”
But does he deserve a chance to do better, or are his actions unforgivable? Take the poll below and expand on your choice in the comments.
