YouTube hasn't shut the door on working with Logan Paul

YouTube hasn't shut the door on working with Logan Paul

"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.

On Twitter, YouTube said it was upset by the video that was shared and suicide is not a joke. The video platform removed Paul from Google Preferred, and put other plans with the vlogger on hold. In 2017, the second season of "Scare PewDiePie", featuring creator Felix Kjellberg, AKA PewDiePie, was canceled after controversy arose surrounding anti-Semetic videos posted the creator (once the most-subscribed YouTuber on the planet).

The YouTube star has been dropped by Google Preferred, a special advertising program that connects top channels with brand advertisers, and from Foursome, a series on YouTube Red, the streaming service's premium subscription service. But YouTube came under fire for not meting out a more serious punishment.

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.




While YouTube cast its net far and wide with new content regulations introduced past year after the, now the company seems to want to zero in on the most popular channels as their videos typically get the most views. It adds that it was taking steps to ensure similar videos are never circulated again. The company will use the combined forces of its 10,000 human moderators and artificial intelligence software to identify videos posted by the biggest channels that violate YouTube's guidelines and are not suitable for advertisements.

Paul, who has not responded publicly to any statements released by YouTube or Japanese officials, has chose to take some time off to reflect on his offensive behavior.

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

YouTube has made a decision to cut ties with Logan Paul following a firestorm of criticism over the vlogger's controversial Japan "Suicide Forest" video.
