We’re only a day and a half into 2018, and already Logan Paul has set the bar for biggest fail of the year. The YouTuber posted a vlog after visiting the “suicide forest” in Japan, an area in the Aokigahara forest at the edge of Mount Fuji that has become notorious as a place for people to commit suicide.

The vlog was viewed millions of times, before Logan finally succumbed to the backlash by deleting the video and issuing an apology of sorts:

It was largely unaccepted by Twitter, including a number of people who’ve lost friends and family member to suicide. YouTuber Anna Akana, who lost her sister to suicide 10 years ago, shared her disgust for Logan’s actions on the app, as did countless others:
