YouTuber Logan Paul received backlash after filming the corpse of a suicide victim hanging in a Japanese forest last month.

After a weeks-long hiatus, he came back to social media with a nine-minute suicide awareness video highlighting the 2013 story of Ally Del Monte of White Plains, a suicide survivor (see video above).

Del Monte's USA Today story flashed across the screen for more than 5 million eyeballs to see as Paul spoke with another survivor (4:31 in the video), who said he felt instant regret after jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge 17 years ago.

Paul plans to donate $1 million to suicide prevention organizations.

"It’s time to start a new chapter in my life as I continue to educate both myself and others on suicide," he said.
