After the backlash that followed his "Suicide Forrest" video, Youtube star Logan Paul made an adamant appeal to fans for forgiveness. Paul, who called the video a "horrible lapse of judgement" during an interview on Good Morning America, promised to learn from the experience -- but his short-lived reformation might already be over.
Following a brief absence from social media, Paul returned in early February and wasted no time before posting another controversial video. In it Paul is seen tasering a dead rat and poking a fish struggling for air.
Though Youtube and Logan's fans seemed surprised by his almost immediate relapse, it seems Twitter may have predicted it over a month before it happened.
With an almost eerie foresight, Twitter user @KrangTNelson anticipated the second Logan Paul fiasco:
Twitter seemed unsurprised that Paul learned nothing from the previous experience:
He was such a nice boy too. Who could have imagined that the young man with a clueless expression and obnoxious personality could act so thoughtlessly?!— José (@JoseNotAJay) February 10, 2018
I really think he is incapable of understanding that there can be consequences for his actions.— Jim Lady Doritos Gallo (@jmgallo) February 10, 2018
I'm sure his loud fan base is still making excuses for him and saying he just made another [in a long line of] mistake[s].— M. S. (@EditingMike) February 10, 2018
Oh he was just tazing dead animals that makes it so much better. Now if he had a history of playing with dead things for views I would have been more concerned— hurgling princess (@furryindenial) February 10, 2018
I mean he put out a teaser trailer comparing his persecuted self to Jesus, why would he be problematic?— that guy from work (@ThatGuyFrmWork) February 10, 2018
Back in January, users responding to the original Tweet also seemed to have Paul's number:

Well, then, they shouldn't have rented a room from what's colloquially known as Japan's Drowned Kitten Hotel. 🤔— Dave B. (@ketheriel) January 2, 2018

And many also accurately characterized the apology and promises Paul would so quickly forget:
