Jake Paul on Suicide Video Logan Was Wrong, Made Huge Mistake

1/23/2018 7:53 AM PST

Logan Paul's little brother is now cleaning the remnants of his brother's mess ... both chiding and defending his brother for posting video of a suicide victim.

Fellow YouTube star Jake Paul posted this video Monday and dubbed it "YouTube, Let's Talk About Brother Logan Paul" ... in which Jake says that "what Logan did was very, very, very wrong and he made a huge mistake."

As we reported ... Logan issued multiple apologies for posting video of a dead body he found in Japan. The fallout was almost immediate ... most notably with YouTube cutting his role.

Jake said Logan didn't mean to offend anyone ... and hopes his big bro bounces back.

Logan Paul Yes, Even I Deserve a Second Chance

1/15/2018 4:29 PM PST

Logan Paul says he's learned a lot from the backlash he received, and money he's lost, since posting video of a suicide victim -- and believes he'll bounce back ... eventually.

We got Paul Monday afternoon at LAX and he admitted he's been treated "fairly" -- referring to YouTube yanking him from one of its original series, and cutting off his main revenue stream from his 15 million subscribers.

Still, Paul didn't seem the least bit concerned about money -- he's got a backup plan -- and said, "Everyone deserves second chances, bro."  

Paul's already issued multiple apologies, but he hinted there was another statement coming ... specifically for his remaining fans on YouTube.

1/14/2018 7:38 AM PST

Logan Paul is not in hiding in the wake of some major blowback over the suicide video that has cost him dearly.

Logan was at Tao Saturday night in Hollywood, with a bunch of friends who shielded him as they left.

The YouTube star was mum as photogs peppered him with questions.

YouTube has partially cut ties with Logan as have several other media platforms since he posted video of him laughing at the body of a man who had committed suicide.

Logan Paul YouTube Cuts Role, Revenue Stream

Breaking News

Logan Paul's on the outs with YouTube after posting a video of a suicide victim -- he's been cut from one of its original series ... and he's taking a major hit to the wallet.

YouTube announced Wednesday it was dropping Paul from the YouTube Red comedy, "Foursome." 

The bigger shot though came from Google Preferred (the top 5% of most-viewed YouTube content) which says it will no longer aggregate Paul's multimillion-subscriber channels for advertisers. That basically means he's cut off from his main source of YouTube income.

Paul -- as he's no longer part of Google Preferred -- has clearly taken a hit since posting the video he shot in Japan's so-called Suicide Forest.

Despite the blow, Paul's father says his son will be returning to vlogging soon.

Tyron Woodley Khabib Is Terrifying ... Hell No I Won't Fight Him!!

1/5/2018 3:48 PM PST

Tyron Woodley says UFC star Khabib Nurmagomedov scares the living hell outta him ... and he ain't too happy his TMZ co-host's trying to play matchmaker with 'em.

On this week's episode of "The Hollywood Beatdown" -- the UFC welterweight champ reveals his very real fear of Khabib ... who absolutely mauled Edson Barboza at UFC 219. 

So once Tyron found out we asked Khabib about a potential throw-down, his reaction was pretty much what you'd expect.

"Why you gonna stick this maniac on me?! Don't try to throw me in there with a dude who's fighting bears!!!"

That's not a joke. A young Khabib REALLY WRESTLED BEARS.

Also on the Beatdown, Woodley reveals a huge NFL star he's bringing to the big screen ... and explains why Logan Paul should get smacked.

Logan Paul On the Run ...

1/5/2018 2:48 PM PST

Logan Paul's a man on the run, and not only from controversy.

The shamed YouTube star was out jogging Friday in L.A. -- the first time he's been seen in public since posting the controversial video of a dead body in Japan's Suicide Forest. 

Logan was decked out in his Maverick clothing line, but even THAT'S gotten him in trouble. As we reported, another company, Maverick Apparel is threatening to sue him, claiming he's damaging its good name with his tasteless video stunts.

You can run, but ... y'know.

Jake Paul Drops N-Word in Freestyle Rap

1/5/2018 1:00 AM PST

Disney Channel star Jake PaulLogan's little brother, is pretty comfortable using the n-word -- he dropped it at least twice during a freestyle rap.

TMZ obtained this video of the "Bizaardvark" star hanging with friends late at night near Palm Springs during Coachella weekend 2015. Jake was freestyling over Rae Sremmurd's "Throw Sum Mo" beat, and early in the video, around 7 seconds, he raps something about ... "little ass n***as."

Later he says, "I whip it like my n***a Richie Vetter, he make the pu**y so wet it gets wetter." 

A source connected to Jake tells us the 20-year-old isn't racist. It's interesting he was rapping over a Rae Sremmurd track ... since the source pointed out Jake just did a collab with Slim Jxmmi for Jake's Christmas album.

Jake's big brother Logan is, of course, dealing with a huge backlash after posting video of a dead body, and has issued two apologies.

Our Jake source says the actor and YouTube sensation has matured a lot since this video was shot.

We reached out to Jake's reps for comment, but so far no word back.

Logan Paul Keeps Lead Role in New Horror Flick ... For Now, Anyway

1/4/2018 10:18 AM PST

Logan Paul's suicide video doesn't seem to have affected his side hustle as the lead in an upcoming horror movie ... at least not yet.

Logan's the centerpiece of writer Jeffrey Reddick's new fright flick, "Superstition: The Rule of 3's." Production sources tell us he hasn't been axed in the wake of controversy ... you'll recall Logan broke into momentary laughter in the video after he spotted a man hanging from a tree.

Doug Falconer -- CEO of Falconer Productions, which is producing 'Superstition' -- confirms with TMZ ... there have been no talks to recast Logan.

But here's the rub. Falconer hadn't even heard about the uproar and said he wanted to talk to the other producers. We're guessing word must have gotten around to at least some of the producers by now, which makes it all the more curious no one gave Falconer a heads-up.

Short story ... it's not case closed, yet.

Danielle Bregoli on Logan Paul Save Your Apologies for Suicide Video You're Disgusting

1/3/2018 7:04 AM PST

Danielle Bregoli thinks Logan Paul should be ashamed of himself for posting a video of a dead man in which Logan appears to laugh at the situation ... and she doesn't accept his apology one bit.

We got the freshly-minted rapper Tuesday night at LAX and she took aim at Logan, calling him "disgusting" for first talking about depression as a fatal illness as a body hung from a tree in the background ... then letting out a laugh.

The 14-year-old thinks Logan might've been able to escape the fiasco unscathed had he not laughed ... but he did, and she's sickened.

And even though he apologized twice, it sounds like she's still not forgiving him ... how 'bout dat?!

Logan Paul 'I Don't Expect to be Forgiven'

1/2/2018 9:55 AM PST

Logan Paul is taking a second swing at apologizing for posting video of a dead body in Japan's Suicide Forest.

The YouTuber and actor posted a video Tuesday, apologizing to just about everyone for the video ... including the suicide victim and his family.

Logan says he doesn't expect to be forgiven, but still did a mea culpa anyway for what he calls a lapse in judgment. 

As we reported ... Logan posted video of the suicide victim's body hanging in the forest ... and immediately caught a ton of heat from his fans and several celebrities. He removed the clip and posted a written "I'm sorry" statement.

Guess he thought this seemingly heartfelt -- he's nearly in tears -- video would better make his point.

Aaron Paul Blasts Logan Paul 'Go Rot In Hell'

Breaking News

The celebrity backlash against Logan Paul has begun ... with "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul unloading on the YouTuber as "pure trash" over his dead body video. 

FYI, Aaron is not related to Logan -- but if they were, you can bet he would have disowned him by now. 

"Dear Logan Paul, How dare you! You disgust me."

"I can't believe that so many young people look up to you. So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash. Plain and simple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell."

Piers Morgan is also slamming Logan ... saying, "You’re a sick, twisted, heartless little prick."

Logan tried to smooth things over after shooting and posting a dead body he found in Japan by writing an open letter ... but so far, it seems it's being rejected harshly. 

YouTuber Logan Paul Sorry for Posting Vid of Dead Body

1/1/2018 8:17 PM PST

Logan Paul is making a full mea culpa for posting a vlog showing a dead body he discovered in Japan ... saying he only intended to raise awareness about suicide.

The famous YouTuber posted the original 15 minute video Sunday showing him and some friends venturing through a forest at the base of Japan's Mount Fuji -- otherwise known as "Suicide Forest" for the high number of self-inflicted deaths that happen there.

In the video -- which is incredibly graphic -- Logan and his crew stumble upon a dead body hanging from a tree. He comes up close to the body and zooms in while police are called.

As you might imagine, Logan caught a huge amount of backlash online -- and he took down the video soon after. He also issued a lengthy apology Monday. 

Sounds like he's sorry -- but we gotta say ... this one seems like it should've been a no-brainer from the get. 

Logan Paul Fires Back at Flobots Stop Bashing My 'Handlebars' Remix

12/28/2017 8:09 AM PST

"I can ride your girl with no handlebars ... no handlebars, no handlebars."

Misogynistic lyrics?! Hell no ... so says Logan Paul, who's firing back at the Flobots after the band blasted his "Handlebars" remix as dumb and sexist.

BACKSTORY: Paul released "No Handlebars" back in November and it blew up -- more than 28 million views on YouTube. The whole song contains nonsensical lyrics about riding a chick like a bike. 

Flobots founder Jonny 5 HATED the remix and blasted him in a response diss track -- claiming he disrespected the original version ... and clowned Logan by saying, "Looks like Donald Trump's kid has arrived."

He also called Logan young, dumb and attention-starved -- pretty aggressive stuff. 

So, when we saw Logan at LAX, we had to ask what he thought of the Flobots diss -- and he had some shade of his own to throw ... playing the "Who are they?" card. 

He also argued that he's not a misogynist -- he's just an artist trying to do creative things ... and doesn't really know what "riding your girl with no handlebars" really means. 

Yeah, right ...
