YouTube finally reacts, delivers a huge blow to Logan Paul's career

YouTube

"We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center".

YouTube also dropped Paul from the fourth season of their YouTube Red series, "Foursome".

The effort to possibly screen Google Preferred videos more closely is part of an ongoing effort to better monitor the type of content and comments that are on the site. He and his friends came upon a body hanging from a tree and posted it to his YouTube account under the guise of "suicide awareness". The video's thumbnail also included an image of the body. The video was watched over six million times, and after the huge criticism, it was finally taken down. The suicide video was removed and thus not monetized. It's been hinted he may be punished further, but for now the millionaire can still earn money from YouTube's nonpreferred platform. The newly announced actions appear to be those consequences.

YouTube previously posted a statement on its Twitter page, stating that the platform stood against the YouTuber's actions.

YouTube's removal of Paul from its preferred advertiser program is expected to have financial repercussions to his channel.

One theme I've heard when I talk to those people: This ultra-premium version of YouTube is likely to favor big, established media companies instead of the home-grown YouTube stars like Logan Paul. YouTube's guidelines do not allow violent or gory content posted in a manner that's meant to be shocking, sensationalist, or disrespectful. He has over 15.7 million followers on Vlog.

"We want advertisers to have peace of mind that their ads are running alongside content that reflects their brand's values", she wrote in December. It is uncertain at this time if Pauls Youtube Red thriller "The Thinning" will still air later this year. "Good job YouTube, better late than never". The Thinning: New World Order is now in limbo after it was to be released this year. It's hard to get worse than filming a dead body for views, but apparently Logan Paul likes a challenge.

But some of the YouTube community felt that the streamer hadn't done enough.

According to Bloomberg's source, Google will use both human moderators and AI to spot videos that may not be appropriate for ads.
