The problem with Youtubers is that they’re largely a law unto themselves. They make vids and upload them with none of the editorial process that goes through other media before being released to the public. So there was nobody to stop him and explain that it would probably be prudent to remove the footage of the body before uploading it.

I don’t think he was as callous and calculating as people are making out in terms of him being giddy about getting huge views on the video. He’s just not so bright and thought it was an exciting event to record because nobody else with his profile has done it before.

If nothing else hopefully it’ll encourage him to grow up and appreciate the potential damage of glamourising suicide in this way to his audience which is largely young and impressionable kids.
Good points.....

People asking for his channel to be deleted, actual physical harm to come to him. Deporting for Japanese punishment...

It was very naive to upload it, with the music and the zooming into his hands etc..

But you know what everyone’s been talking about, mental health and suicide...
You can Go on YouTube now and see bodies, death, police shootings etc, there’s millions of dead bodies all over YouTube...

As a vlogger he uploads his life daily...weird yes, should he have approached this better ? Probably....

But I found it interesting, informative and a bit fucking mad...

He does need to be aware of his target audience though...

The thousands of people making reaction videos though...you’re cashing in on the event yourself...

Adore YouTube, a platform built on drama...
