Logan Paul has announced his official return to YouTube, after being criticised for uploading a video where he discovered a suicide victim.

Paul found a dead body while wandering in Japan's Aokigahara forest, which has apparently witnessed several suicides. After being shocked by the discovery he was seen joking with his friends afterwards.

​YouTube cut ties with the vlogger over the matter, removing him from its exclusive Google Preferred advertising tier as well as YouTube Red series.

Since the criticism Paul has uploaded an apology video as well as a film about suicide and mental health awareness. He has also pledged to donate $1 million to suicide prevention organisations.

Now he has uploaded a video entitled "Logan Paul Is Back!" where he first appears as a shirtless bearded man at a beach, according to Daily News.

A narrator speaks over the footage: “The maverick Logan Paul, showing his face for the first time after the disgraced YouTuber has been spotted across the country, hiding his face from paparazzi and seen swallowing his tears on social media like a little baby."

Paul disputes this with the narrator but also says he's back “more knowledgeable, more compassionate.”

He also says: “I know for a fact everything I do from this point on will get criticism, it will get backlash, because I’m a very polarising dude. You either love me, or you hate me.

“So internet, please, use me, bro. Crucify me, vilify me, and I can promise you one thing, guys, I’m not going anywhere.”
