YouTube takes action against Logan Paul
January 11, 2018
The internet has recently been furious with uber-popular YouTube vlogger, Logan Paul. Earlier this month, Paul posted a video of his trip to Japan which showed a suicide victim hanging from a tree in the Aokigahara forest, well known as Japan’s ‘suicide forest.’
YouTube has announced yesterday that they have “decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” which is a premium designation that notifies advertisers of YouTube’s top-performing users. This means that Logan Paul, whose account has 15 million subscribers, will be making less money from ads than he used to. YouTube is trying it’s best to distance itself from Logan by cancelling the 2016 sequel of the YouTube Red movie, The Thinning: New World Order. YouTube is being applauded by the public for finally taking a stand against the issue.
Paula claims that he did not post the video for the views and has publicly apologized for his bad judgement. Have a look at the apology he tweeted:
