YouTube Puts Logan Paul Film On Hold, Removes Him From Preferred Program

YouTube reprimands Logan Paul, star vlogger, over Japan 'suicide forest' video

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

Paul also had projects in the works with YouTube's premium subscription service, YouTube Red, and appeared on the platform's web series "Foursome". Soon after the group started walking into the forest, Paul stumbled upon the body and recorded the body hanging from a tree with the face blurred out.

YouTube also gave Paul's channel a strike. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences".

The identity of the deceased man was not known. The video was watched over six million times, and after the huge criticism, it was finally taken down.

He also uploaded a video apology, and said: "I should have never posted the video". "I'm disappointed in myself", the BBC quoted Paul as saying. Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week.

It's hard to calculate exactly. Although the video was removed within 24 hours, it managed to garner over 1 million views and the viewer expressed disappointment on uploading such an eye-hurting video on YouTube.

SpaceX launched a secret satellite fell into the ocean
However, SpaceX made a decision to delay the launch to deal with some issues regarding the payload fairing (nose cone). This was SpaceX' s third classified mission for the USA government, a lucrative customer.

Google Preferred allows brands to publish ads on the accounts that are most popular among 18-34 year-olds in the US.

YouTube, meanwhile, had remained silent about the video until earlier this week, when it released a statement saying "Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently". Paul apologized after the incident, and many celebrities lashed out.

Last year, Forbes magazine estimated he made $12.5m (£9.3m), making him the fourth highest-paid YouTube star in 2016.

That would be a subtle but important change for YouTube, which has always pitched itself as an alternative to Conventional Media, even when it is trying to get the people who make content for Conventional Media and advertise with Conventional Media to pay attention.

YouTube took a number of days to respond publicly to the issue. "You deserve to know what's going on". One of those people, Anna Akana, referenced the horror of her own sister's death and added, "You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness".

During that visit, Paul discovered a person who had apparently killed themself.
