YouTube reprimands Logan Paul, star vlogger, over Japan 'suicide forest' video

Logan Paul may face 'further consequences' from YouTube

In the wake of the video, which has since been deleted, many called on YouTube to take action. Paul has yet to upload another vlog since his Suicide Forest video breaking his streak of posting a vlog every day since September 12, 2016. The video's thumbnail also included an image of the body.

Additionally, on Tuesday, YouTube made the decision to remove Paul's channel and videos from Google Preferred. The Preferred Program, however, happens to be a more exclusive grouping which acts as a guarantee of sorts for advertisers to expect quality video content.

The video that YouTube is referencing to in its statements against Paul is his video uploaded on December 31, 2017. The newly announced actions appear to be those consequences.

YouTube concluded its statement by admitting it had taken a long time to respond to the issue.

But according to estimates by Forbes, the measures won't affect much of Paul's $12.5 million revenue, of which $3.25 million came from YouTube advertisements.

YouTube has a serious problem with inappropriate content. Although the video was removed within 24 hours, it managed to garner over 1 million views and the viewer expressed disappointment on uploading such an eye-hurting video on YouTube. Before last year's Upfronts, YouTube's better-than-TV pitch was already marred by rare but jarring combinations of wholesome brand marketing and offensive videos. The film, a sequel to Paul's popular YouTube Red sci-fi thriller The Thinning, was announced in late November and was expected to drop on Red, YouTube's ad-free subscription streaming service, later this year.

Not only is Logan Paul undeniably ignorant, he's also risky. So far, there have been no reports of advertisers pulling ads from YouTube in response to the Logan Paul situation.

The company refused to play his videos as they used to do it before which mean he has to find another source of income from now on.

However, that didn't satisfy the masses who were metaphorically calling for Paul's head. Three strikes within a three-month period triggers termination of the offending account. The company said, though, that Paul violated its community guidelines with the suicide video.
