YouTube Looking Into 'Further Consequences' for Logan Paul's Disturbing Video

YouTube Looking Into 'Further Consequences' for Logan Paul's Disturbing Video

Recent reports have revealed that after a frustrating delay, YouTube has finally taken definitive action against the controversial Logan Paul after he uploaded a video where was laughing at a dead man who committed suicide. Season three premiered November 1. However, Paul did confirm that he was going on hiatus to reflect on his actions a few days before YouTube released their decisions.

Logan's channel can still be viewed on YouTube, but they have been removed from YouTube's Google Preferred platform, which features its most popular content in packages for sale to advertisers.

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. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of "Foursome" and his new originals are on hold".

The video was viewed some 6 million times before being removed from Paul's YouTube channel, a verified account with more than 15 million subscribers.

At the time, YouTube released a statement indicating that Paul's video had violated its policies. "We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center". In the past, there has been a lot of controversy and speculation surrounding how videos get chosen for YouTube's Trending page as well as its "recommended" and "what's next" suggestions, and it's possible that, with this new vetting, Google could influence what makes "popular" YouTube content even more popular than before. Creators large and small have called out YouTube on its murky communication in the past, and they've expressed frustration when videos have been demonetized for unknown reasons.

The video received many complaints and was deleted.

On Twitter, YouTube said it was upset by the video that was shared and suicide is not a joke.

The company then indicated that it would look at "further consequences" and would share more soon about "steps we're taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again".
