Who is Logan Paul?

Logan was born on April 1, 1995, in Cleveland. However, he moved soon to Westlake, Ohio, where he grew up. Paul has English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Jewish and German ancestry. He has a younger brother Jake, who is also an internet personality. Their mother, Pamela Ann Stepnick, worked as a nurse. Their father, Gregory Allan Paul, was a real estate agent and before part of the military. Growing up, Logan, along with his younger brother, loved playing sports, especially football, and going to the woods.

Logan and his brother loved watching YouTuber Smosh, and they say he was their biggest inspiration to begin creating videos. They made a channel called "Zoosh" and started posting short funny videos, their mom was the cameraman. Around this time, Logan's parents divorced, and the Paul brothers were shaken by this event.

When Logan started attending high school, he and Jake stopped making videos and started focusing on wrestling and football. He achieved the ranks of The Plain Dealer's All-Star linebacker on the football team in 2012. Logan qualified for the state-level Ohio High School Athletic Association 2013 Division I Wrestling Individual Championships. In 2013, Jake joined Vine and officially started his internet career.

Logan Paul first hit fame on the platform Vine starting in 2013, where he uploaded random sketches. Once Vine shut down in 2016, he started focusing on his YouTube and acting career. Logan had created a YouTube channel known as The Official Logan Paul but stopped uploading on this channel in 2017. By April 2014, he had about 150,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, and it was a massive number at that time. 

He started pursuing his acting career and appeared in the film Baywatch. In 2015, Paul appeared in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and in the Fox TV series Weird Loners. He also starred in two episodes of the Freeform series Stitchers. In 2016, Logan collaborated with YouTube Red and played in the movie The Thinning.

The most significant case around Logan Paul happened in December 2017. It is known as the suicide forest controversy. Paul uploaded a vlog to his YouTube channel, where he visited Aokigahara forest at the base of Mount Fuji in Japan. This forest is known as the "suicide forest" because many people committed suicide there. The biggest issue about the vlog was Logan showing the recently deceased corpse of a man who died by hanging. Paul and his group had planned to camp in the woods, but after finding the corpse, they decided to notify the police and cancel their plans. The video gained 6,3 million views within one day. The footage was strongly criticized by the public, celebrities and politicians. As a result, Paul removed the video from his YouTube channel, posted a written apology on Twitter and uploaded a subsequent video apology on his YouTube channel. This cause almost ruined Logan Paul's career because many advertisers, such as Google Preferred, removed Logan Paul's channel from their program. He was also cut from his filming roles. 

On February 9, 2018, YouTube suspended all advertising on Paul's channel due to his behaviour. He joked about the Tide Pod Challenge, removed a fish from the pond to "give it CPR", tasered two dead rats and many more. He didn't receive any revenue from YouTube, and as a result, he broadcasted live on Twitch for a while. After 3 months, YouTube restored revenue from Paul's channel.
