Logan Paul is known to ignite controversy on social media. The popular YouTube sensation faked his demise in a video in which he pranked young fans watching from a distance.

During the video, Logan Paul was seen standing near a hotel room window waving at the fans. The staged set-up was such that an armed person seemingly approached Paul and another crew member splashed fake blood on the window to make it appear as if he had been shot.

YouTuber and Paul's long-time friend Mark Dohner was also present in the video.

Logan Paul later stated the reason for staging the realistic prank, saying that the fans often visited his old house, and he wanted to teach them a lesson to stop them from spying on people.

"What I'm about to do today, is so wrong that it's almost right," said Logan Paul. "So I told [the fans] that I'm by myself so they think that the murder is real. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to hold my fake vlog camera, so they think that I'm vlogging them instead of just standing and waving."
