Explaining Logan Paul's Controversial Vlog

He titled the extremely controversial video "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest..."

Videos that are part of Google Preferred have always been governed by YouTube's general and posting rules that define offensive and unacceptable content.

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.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter in an email statement.

Almost two weeks after Logan Paul's infamous trip to Tokyo, Japanese police have announced that he could be charged with at least four different crimes after viewing his videos. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold". Amid the Paul flap-up and other brand safety concerns, YouTube is reportedly reimagining its Google Preferred ad package, and will henceforth vet channels using human and technological moderation.

Suspect in custody after Greyhound bus pursuit across state lines, police say
Friday night when authorities received reports of an armed subject on board a bus from Milwaukee to Chicago. Authorities evacuated all the passengers to safety and no injuries were reported , officials said.

Paul later apologized and said he should never have posted the video. "Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video", the company said.

YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner, the company says. If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information, and in some cases it will be age-gated. Three strikes, received when violating a YouTube policy, within a three-month period will cause YouTube to terminate an account. 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 stirred a great deal of controversy and people even started a Change.org petition demanding that Paul's YouTube channel be deleted.

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