Good morning,

Vlogger and former Ohio University student Logan Paul has returned to YouTube after a three-and-a-half week hiatus.

Paul was widely criticized for posting a now-deleted video titled “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest…” on Dec. 31; in the video, he filmed the body of a man who had apparently committed suicide.

Amid severe backlash, YouTube removed Paul's channels from its preferred ad program, cut his role in the YouTube Red series Foursome and halted both Logan Paul vs. and the sequel to his YouTube film The Thinning.

On Wednesday, Paul posted his first video since his Jan. 2 apology. In the new video, Paul discusses suicide prevention.
