YouTube has received a lot of flak lately especially after the antics of popular YouTube star Logan Paul.
When he posted a video of a dead body hanging from a tree, it sparked a discussion online on content that is made available online viewed by young, impressionable teenagers.
Many fans defended Paul and accepted his apology on how he wanted to raise "awareness for suicide and suicide prevention".
Apart from the notorious suicide forest video, he has made a name for himself with pointless pranks and shock-value antics like faking his own murder in clear view of his young fans.
It is somewhat troubling how young people all over the world look up to such influencers and find what they do just harmless fun.
Some even try to emulate them.
