Full disclosure: I did not watch Logan Paul's controversial YouTube video. In fact, I don't really know who Logan Paul is. All I know is he made a mistake and he is paying for it now with tons of backlash. He has young followers who look up to him, and it makes sense why his actions are being criticized. But the way in which he is being attacked is completely uncalled for, especially when the main topic of discussion is suicide prevention.
Various celebrities flocked to Twitter to condemn Logan Paul with harsh tweets. These tweets used hateful language, and were the perfect examples of how not to treat another human being. These people condemned Paul for setting a bad example to his followers, while simultaneously, and hopefully unintentionally, teaching their followers that it is okay to bully someone.
Journalist Lauren Duca called Logan Paul "an amoral piece of shit who could not be less deserving of his platform."
Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner called the YouTuber an "idiot," and claimed he did not "deserve the success (views)" that he had. She also expressed a wish that Paul would "never have to experience anything like that man did."
Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul said Logan Paul disgusted him and was "pure trash."
Again, I didn't watch Logan Paul's video. However, I doubt that his intentions were as malicious as people are making them out to be.
He obviously did not know how to approach a difficult subject, and he suffered the consequences. The same could also be said for anyone who thought it was okay to publicly admonish Logan Paul for his actions using harmful language.
At the end of the day, bullying is never okay. There are no bad guys in this situation, just a lot of ignorance. This is a good lesson for everyone. We should all be more careful about what we put out there.
