He's really trying to save his reputation.

Logan Paul sat down for his first TV interview since posting a video of a suicide victim on his YouTube channel, and the viral sensation is doing everything he can to apologize for his lapse in judgement.

GMA host Michael Strahan got straight to the point, and asked why Paul visited Aokigahara, known as Japan's "suicide forest," to begin with.

"The idea was do another fun vlog … go camp for a night and make an entertaining piece of content in a forest and things obviously changed pretty drastically and quickly. So, it was 100 yards away from the parking lot. It doesn’t make a sense. And I believe it happened for a reason, and I think that reason is so I could take this experience, learn from it, spread the message the right way about suicide prevention and suicide prevention awareness," he explained.

"The idea was to shock and show the harsh realities of suicide and get people talking about something that I don’t think people are talking about much and still that’s the goal today. I am a good guy who made a bad decision … I will think twice in the future about what I post,” he added. For a guy whose whose career is centered on outrageous pranks and pissing people off, are we really supposed to believe this?

Now, the vlogger says he's been urged to end his own life amid the outrage and controversy.

"Ironically I’m being told to commit suicide myself. Millions of people literally telling me they hate me, to go die in a fire. Like, the most horrible, horrific things," he whined.

Ultimately, he claims to have learned his lesson, and is doing his best to make things right, including pledging $1 million to suicide prevention.

"This has been, to be honest with you, the hardest time in my life. I think I'm going to earn a second chance. I don't think everyone should get a second chance. Some people do horrible things ... this was a horrible lapse of judgment. And I can, will and am going to learn from it and be a better person. I've gotten to meet the most incredible people and have the most incredible conversations. And, in fact, that's one thing I don't regret about this whole experience is I would've missed out on making these relationships and getting this education," he admitted.
