We all know what happened.
Logan uploaded an insensitive video filming a guy who had recently committed suicide, and received a lot of backlash and criticism. The whole incident is a story we really don’t need to hear right now.
YouTube, going into 2018, is undoubtedly dominated by pranksters. Nothing’s wrong with that. But when a person, no matter how famous he/she is, uploads something that is morally unsound, YouTube should be the first people to to take action. Although his video was actually less about the actual body and more about the entire incident as a whole, I still did have some graphic content that disturbed many viewers. For whatever reason. Nothing’s wrong with being controversial. Nothing is wrong with being hated. But if you’re going to be under heavy fire, do it for a good cause.
Upload a video about the slums in Africa, or the gender pay gap in America, or racism all around the world. Make something, anything that sheds light on problems we have to solve as an entirety(like suicide!).
We need to do our part in making sure that the ideas we spread are, for the larger percentage, ones that inspire. This will only happen when the ideas YOU have are inspiring, positive, real, sensitive and empowering. Those are the qualities you must have in yourselves, to ensure that others around us are the same.
We rise by lifting others.
