YouTube has slapped Logan Paul with some serious consequences following his controversial suicide forest video. This episode is brought to you by Turbo Tax. Relax, there’s Turbo Tax.
According to YouTube, Logan Paul is now cancelled.
Logan is facing MORE aftermath from his inconsiderate YouTube vlog that featured an apparent suicide victim in Japan. Many wondered why YouTube didn’t take down the video before it racked up over a million views. Logan himself removed the video one day after it was uploaded, due to backlash over his insensitivity toward mental health issues. And now, 11 days after the video first went live YouTube has hit Logan with some severe punishment. YouTube announced yesterday it has removed Logan from it’s Google Preferred Program- the program that gives brands the ability to sell ads to the top 5 percent of creators. Logan can still run ads on his YouTube channels- buuuut he’ll have to do it like the rest of us.
In YouTube’s statement on the matter they also revealed Logan won’t be featured in season four of YouTube Red original comedy “Foursome”. AND on top of that Logan’s upcoming YouTube Originals project “The Thinning: New World Order” was put on hold. As you know, the film is a sequel to his sci-fi thriller “The Thinning”.
When Logan’s vlog first went live, YouTube issued a statement that his video violated their policies and noted that his channel received a strike. PS: If a channel receives three strikes within a three month period, the channel is deleted.
Then on Tuesday, YouTube wrote an open letter on Twitter revealing that punishment for Logan Paul’s inappropriate video was coming soon. The letter read in part: “Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views.” In another tweet YouTube expressed QUOTE, “We expect more of the creators who build their community on @youtube, as we’re sure you do too. The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences.”
Now the questions is: are these consequences too harsh?... or not harsh enough? Cancel whatever you’ve got going on for the next couple minutes and tell us below your thoughts on this controversy.
