YouTube: upset by the video of body in Japan

Google expressed its disapproval and condemned Paul's suicide video, highlighting that suicide should never be seen as a light thing or be exploited as a means to gain more viewers.

He also said the channel will soon announce changes that will further protect the YouTube community. In turn, creators with channels in Google Preferred get a better cut of the advertising revenue than those on Google's lower-tier advertising programs.

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, YouTube said that Paul's channel violated its community guidelines and it will have consequences.

"But we've been listening to everything you've been saying", the streaming service said in a series of tweets, pledging to take steps "to ensure a video like this is never circulated again". It's also shaken the mini digital empire the 22-year-old Paul built out of his prank-and-stunt-filled daily missives on YouTube watched by millions of followers, many of them tweens, teens and kids.

YouTube star Logan Paul's fall from grace is complete, according to the channel's Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl, it was confirmed on Saturday at TCA.

The backlash over the suicide video, which showed a dead body hanging from a tree in what's known as "suicide forest", has raised questions about YouTube's lax approach to videos uploaded to the service.

"In light of recent events, we have made a decision to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", reads the full statement from a YouTube spokeswoman, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. You're right to be.

When reminded of the previous uproar over comic vlogger PewDiePie's anti-Semitic "jokes", Kyncl remarked that YouTube's decision to halt their relationship with Paul is indicative of their efforts to reduce these issues going forward.

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. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of "Foursome" and his new originals are on hold". Google had recently announced it will be expanding it staff members by adding 10,000 more employees who will be focused on the task of flagging videos deemed inappropriate for ads.
