PRESS REWIND: Logan Paul faux pas and Kimye baby debut


Logan Paul Learns Suicide is Bad

New Years started with a bang of controversy when Youtuber, Logan Paul, uploaded a vlog of him visiting the Japanese Suicide Forest to his 16 million subscribers. The dead body of a man who recently hung himself was on full display with only the face blurred out as Paul proceeded to crack jokes with his friends and vlog at an intimate distance from the corpse. After a day’s worth of resounding backlash from non-Logan Paul diehards, the video was taken offline and supplemented with two apologies (because the first one containing an emoji and hashtag somehow wasn’t sincere enough). Three weeks later, Paul came back with a video speaking to a suicide survivor and lifeline runner to demonstrate his growth as a person, even pledging one million dollars to suicide prevention organizations. Yet, even though he has the money to pay off his mistakes, it may take a while to truly know if Paul understands why you shouldn’t expose dead bodies for Youtube clout.



Kimye’s Newborn Hits Close to Home

Long live unconventional celeb baby names! Of course, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren’t strangers to this phenomenon, sin

ce their first two children are called North and Saint. The couple continued their naming trend on Jan. 15 by welcoming their third child into the world via surrogate: Chicago West. The name was announced from a post on Kardashian’s app, and it’s also been reported by TMZ that North and Saint are referring to their little sister as Chi (pronounced “shy”) for short. In response to this news, social media accounts for the Bears, Choose Chicago, and Chicago Fire have sent their well wishes to the newborn; even the Portillo’s twitter offered Chi free Portillo’s for life. Sure, offer a baby that will most likely grow up in a Portillo’s-less Los Angeles free food, but none for any of us! Oh well, perhaps we’ll get to experience the live taping of another Kardashian spinoff: Chicago Takes Chicago.
