American Youtuber Logan Paul in a recent conversation with fellow YouTuber True Geordie revealed that the former professional wrestler, Dwayne Johnson, who’s popularly known as ‘The Rock’ hates him. Logan Paul is one of the successful YouTubers having the most-subscribed channels on the platform across the United States.
Logan Paul has a record of getting into several controversies which are mostly related to his Japan trip in December 2017, during which he visited the Aokigahara forest which is also known as the ‘suicide forest’ as dozens of people go there every year to take their own lives. This 2017 controversy is one of the reasons which is connected to Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock hating the YouTuber.
How 2017 Suicide Forest Controversy Affected Logan Paul Relationship With The Rock
Back in 2017 when Paul filmed a video in Japan’s suicide forest, they found a deceased man who had reportedly died by suicide and went on to make jokes about the situation and upload it on his youtube channel facing a severe backlash that resulted in losing business deals and having his YouTube account temporarily demonetized.
In a recent conversation with Geordie, Paul shared how his relationship with Johnson evolved when he was still making Vines. The duo made a few sketches together that went ‘crazy viral.’ While talking about Johnson, he went on to unfold the Japan controversy which he considered to be the ‘saddest moment’ of his life.

Paul said, “After Japan happened, obviously found me in a hole rightfully so that I had never been in before. [I was] extremely low mentally, and I got a call from my publicist who also repped Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and she’s like, ‘Hey Dwayne’s asked that you remove every picture and video that you’ve done with him and maybe in the future the relationship can be reconciled but for now he basically wants nothing to do with you,’ which I also understood.”
He added, “But I just wish I’d gotten like a call or a text or something because I thought we had a healthy relationship, an open line of communication. And I was so sad that my hero wanted nothing to do with me. And I was sad because I understood it, I really f****d up.”

That youtube video where the deceased man was made fun of by Paul and his friends was criticized by the people including the celebrities. In addition, he was accused by other members of the YouTube community of being insensitive to suicide victims.
Shortly after, the vlogger apologized for the incident and vowed to do better, seemingly learning from the mistake.
In the same sit-up, he shared, “I was so disappointed in myself, and so I vowed to get better, I vowed to change, time passed, I start doing well… I just wanted to be able to build a relationship with Dwayne that didn’t end up happening.”
