After my post a few days ago, I had a several comments, messages, and also read other posts on Commaful touting that suicide rates dropped 36% since Logan's video.
If true, that is AMAZING and I'd drop any and all criticism. That is certainly no small feat.
That's why I set out to track the facts and take a look at the source for this actual data.
First, I set out to find the original source for this information. After a quick Google, I found it:
Awesome right? Let's take a closer look and see what this site is.
In other words, this site is a "fake news" site. They make jokes and this post was intended as a joke.
I tried to do some overall research to see if there were any real stats.
In general, it does seem that suicide rates have been steadily dropping, but I couldn't find any stats specifically correlated with Logan Paul's video.
While the stat is fake, do you think Logan actually made an impact on suicide rates? Comment below!
