YouTube removes Logan Paul from Google ad platform, original series

YouTube Pares Back Logan Paul Partnership After Suicide Video Post

Just to refresh your memory, the whole shebang started a couple of weeks ago, more specifically on the 31 of December, when notorious YouTuber and Vlogger Logan Paul posted a clip on his official YouTube channel detailing his trek through the infamous Aokigahara, also known as the suicide forest. YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner. A YouTube Red movie Paul was supposed to star in, The Thinning: New World Order, has been put on pause. YouTube took similar action past year when PewDiePie made anti-semitic comments. The video was watched over six million times, and after the huge criticism, it was finally taken down.

Paul publicly apologised for the video twice, once on Twitter and later in a video he posted with the message: "So sorry".

YouTube extends official apology for Logan Paul video.

The official statement reads, "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold".

In recent months, advertisers and others have complained about the unfiltered nature of some videos involving children and popular stars such as Logan Paul - the second round of such scrutiny in the past year.

Experts find WhatsApp groups can be infiltrated: Here's how
So if you see someone new entering your group, speak to the other members in private chats to confirm the new person's identity. WhatsApp said it had "carefully looked" at the flaw and reassured users that their encrypted messages were safe.

YouTube assured its audience that in addition to dishing out consequences for Logan, it will also be taking steps to prevent something like this from happening again. True to their word, YouTube stripped Logan Paul from their main advertising platform, which will see a considerable chunk of his income taken away along with halting the production of his original content.

The first video prompted another apology from Paul, where he commented on his severe lapse of judgment and doesn't expect forgiveness. One of those people, Anna Akana, referenced the horror of her own sister's death and added, "You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness".

Despite the saga, experts say Paul may still have made up to $96,000 from the Aokigahara forest video.

YouTube's punishment was announced Wednesday, Jan. 10 - more than a week after Paul's video was uploaded.

YouTube's decision revokes Paul's access to numerous revenue streams content creators utilize to monetize content-members of the Google Preferred program are able to utilize the most lucrative advertisers the platform offers.
