Warning: This article discusses suicide.
While most of the internet was outraged by Logan Paul's suicide video, the vlogger's fan base is sticking by the star and he has even gained a bunch of new followers from the controversy (???).
The Suite Life on Deck star Debby Ryan just took to Instagram with a long and impassioned message to the peeps who are condoning Logan's actions.
"This l*gan p*ul sh*t is so angering and I wish it was more surprising. We’re all dumb sometimes. Short-sighted, young, figuring it out, and anyone with lots of people watching is under extra pressure," she wrote.
"The mistakes I’ve made push me to live with such intention to honour the grace I’ve been given and move forward, never going back there. But can we please stop glorifying remorselessly irresponsible people? I understand talking about it; it’s an important conversation, I think. It’s uncomfortable at best and deeply triggering at worst, and not just for those of us who’ve been convinced by volatile depression and dissociation to engage in selfish, hopeless behaviour."
She adds: "But this kid’s gotten tens of thousands of NEW subscribers SINCE this controversy. That’s problematic. Rewarding these monsters with money, support, and making them famous. Glamourising social recklessness and being surprised when their addiction to shock factor crosses lines.
We’re so quick to justify and defend and shield ignorant straight white dudes with cameras & loud voices from consequences, while nitpicking marginalised voices into unrealistic accountability. That 👏🏽silences 👏🏿the voices👏🏼 we need 👏🏾 right now. Sharing opinions, spreading information and desperate education is so so important in 2018, for the youth and for the government. For the future and to honour the strides we’ve made.
And when you have a big platform, IGNORANCE IS ACTUAL MALICE. Idk why I put this on a picture of me I didn’t have anything else I wanted to say except this rant so /rant."
Well, someone had to say it and we're glad that it was Debby!
