YouTube Puts Logan Paul Film On Hold, Removes Him From Preferred Program

Logan Paul may face 'further consequences' from YouTube

This comes almost two weeks after Paul posted a video of him visiting Aokigahara in Japan, also known as the "suicide forest", and prominently featuring a dead human body in the video and in the video's thumbnail. 10, the platform pulled him from the Google Preferred program, an advertising network that gives certain YouTube channels higher advertising rates. Paul was supposed to star in The Thinning: New World Order, but the project has been put on hold.

One strike was also issued against Pauls channel, three strikes within a three-month period will cause the platform to terminate an account. It has also sent its condolence to the family and friends of the man in the video. Many users found YouTube's reaction lukewarm, and the service has since been receiving criticisms, along with Paul, as a result.

To brush up, YouTube's guidelines specifically states that "it's not okay to post violent or gory content that's primarily meant to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful".

The backlash was immediate and fierce, and resulted in Paul pulling the video and issuing an apology.

In a statement, YouTube said it was removing Paul's channel, which has more than 15 million subscribers, from its Google Preferred program.

The fact that the defense did this without Dont'a Hightower and an inexperienced front seven also speaks to the job Patricia did. Matt Patricia is one of the hottest names in the head coaching market.

The company also dropped the aspiring actor from the upcoming season of YouTube's original comedy series Foursome. "If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated", a YouTube spokesperson said at the time.

Danny Fratella from the analytics website Social Blade told the Telegraph: "YouTube creators, especially those with larger audiences, tend to earn anywhere from $1 to $4 per thousand views on their videos". After the public uproar that followed when Logan Paul did that very stupid thing on December 31, YouTube is now taking action. "It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying", Youtube said.

They concluded by adding that the video violated their community guidelines, and would have been taken down even if Paul hadn't done so himself.

By the end of 2017, Google and YouTube were dealing with a sea of bad actors who were publishing disturbing children's content or videos targeted toward kids.
