Logan Paul's younger brother, fellow YouTube star Jake Paul, is "addressing the elephant in the room" by speaking out about his brother's controversial "suicide forest" video, both defending and criticizing him.

In a video titled "YouTube, Let's Talk About Brother Logan Paul," Jake says that what Logan did was "very, very, very wrong and he made a huge mistake."

"Not only is he paying for it, but he is learning from it," Jake continued, adding that he believes his vlogger brother will "bounce back" from the scandal.

In late December, Paul came under fire for posting a video of him exploring Aokigahara forest in Japan, an area where he came across and filmed the body of a dead man.

In early January, Paul apologized for the controversial video, saying, "I don't expect to be forgiven, I'm simply here to apologize."
