YouTube Execs Open Up About Logan Paul's Future on Site

As expected, YouTube took action to penalize Logan Paul for the gruesome suicide video. The move is said to be a part of Google Preferred, a premium advertising programme.

The video received a ton of backlash, most calling Logan Paul out on being insensitive and unprofessional for exploiting a dead body, knowing it would be presented on a platform with young viewers.

The popular video platform has now removed Paul from Google Preferred, a program created to ensure that brands sell its ads alongside the top 5 percent of YouTube's content creators.

Addressing the potential pitfalls of working with renegade young creators on the channel, Kyncl said, "Some of them are very young and sometimes get themselves in hot water", adding, "I want to make sure that we all recognize that a few misssteps don't spoil the work of all the other hardworking creators on YouTube". But YouTube came under fire for not meting out a more serious punishment.

Initially YouTube issued a "Community Guidelines strike" against Paul.

Last year, Felix Kjellberg, a Swedish vlogger (video blogger) known as PewDiePie who has almost 59 million followers and is very popular with young people, had his original YouTube Red series canceled after the Wall Street Journal reported on videos with racist language and anti-semitic imagery.

"Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".

However, Paul took it upon himself to step away from publishing videos for some time.

YouTube said the images violated its policies. This response did not satisfy many people who demanded Paul face consequences for his actions.

Almost two weeks after Logan Paul's infamous trip to Tokyo, Japanese police have announced that he could be charged with at least four different crimes after viewing his videos.

Paul, who has 15 million subscribers to his YouTube videos, hasn't uploaded a daily video since since January 2, when he posted an apology.

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently.

Eric Dahan, co-founder and CEO of Open Influence, an influencer marketing firm that works with brands like Coca Cola and BMW, says the controversy has woken up YouTube to the havoc that the missteps of one of its top content creators can wreak on its global brand.

YouTube severed ties with Paul on Wednesday, removing him from its lucrative Google Preferred ad tier, writing him off of the YouTube Red series Foursome, and also putting a sequel to Paul's YouTube Red movie The Thinning on hold.
