For Some Unknown Reason, YouTube STILL Wants To Work With Logan Paul…

YouTube: upset by the video of body in Japan

YouTube: upset by the video of body in Japan

Nearly two weeks after YouTube star Logan Paul posted footage of a suicide victim in the forests near Mount Fuji in Japan, the streaming platform has now suspended the 22-year-old from their services.

This decision by YouTube disavows Logan Paul, who has become one of the channel's biggest stars.

The company said it had shut down its original projects with the 22-year-old vlogger, who has more than 15 million subscribers, and he would no longer appear in its comedy series Foursome.

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.

Logan Paul's YouTube Originals projects are on "indefinite hold", YouTube executives confirmed at the Television Critics Association press tour Saturday - but they would not say that the platform had cut ties with him permanently and did not rule out working with him in the future.

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.

On Twitter, YouTube said it was upset by the video that was shared and suicide is not a joke. Amid the Paul flap-up and other brand safety concerns, YouTube is reportedly reimagining its Google Preferred ad package, and will henceforth vet channels using human and technological moderation. "I want to make sure that we all recognize that a few missteps don't spoil the work of all the other hardworking creators on YouTube".

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. Its decision comes more than a week after Paul posted the video, and YouTube received heavy criticism during this time for not removing the channel and not issuing a statement sooner to express its regret to the family of the victim.

YouTube was criticised for moving slowly in response, taking almost two weeks to take action.

"YouTube manages the largest set of partners of any company in the world", ranging from young people trying to get started "all the way to Disney", Kyncl said.

This move is in the wake of the recent incident involving popular YouTuber Logan Paul who was taken off the "Preferred" platform for uploading the video of a dead body from Japan's famous suicide forest.
