YouTube Exec Addresses Logan Paul Suspension:"He Has Made Missteps"

YouTube has suspended Logan Paul who posted video images of what appeared to be a suicide victim but said that doesn't mean it won't work with him in the future. Phil McCarten  Invision  AP

Google has dished out a stiff punishment to Logan Paul that will limit his earning power and his visibility on YouTube for blasting out a controversial video showing a suicide victim in the Aokigahara, the Japanese forest where dozens of bodies are discovered every year. "You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness, '" YouTube said.

The 22-year-old's YouTube channel has more than 15 million followers and was reportedly worth more than 12 million dollars in advertising revenue last year. Many apparently believe YouTube needs to remove Paul's channel permanently, although given the growing proliferation of robot tweets in the Twitterverse, it's really hard to say which critics are real and which ones are Memorex. "Everything is evolving so fast", he said, including YouTube's community guidelines. Even as the Logan Paul controversy continues, other YouTubers are uploading videos highlighting live, illegal activities (trespassing and breaking and entering) on the service without any outcome whatsoever.

YouTube also condemned Paul's actions and stated that suicide should never be used as a joke or a means for viewership. "Taking time to reflect", he tweeted.

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.

The film could have likely worked without all the punching and kicking provided, but then what would be left for The Commuter . Liam Neeson has built his late career around being your dad, or rather, the power fantasy that your dad wishes he were.

"We expect more of the creators who build their community on, as we're sure you do too".

The news comes a day after YouTube officials released a letter condemning Logan Paul's video, which says: Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently.

YouTube also removed Paul's channels from its Google Preferred program, which gives brands the ability to sell ads on the top 5 percent of creators on the platform. Additionally, the network reports they will not feature Paul in the fourth season of its series "Foursome" and would put other work of his on hold.

"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.
