YouTube Removes Logan Paul From Preferred Program, Puts 'Thinning' Sequel on Hold

Logan Paul

Paul, a former Disney Channel star alongside his brother Jake, was one of YouTube's most popular content producers, with over 15 million subscribers.

Netizens recently called out Paul after he posted a video taken from Aokigahara park in Japan, which is commonly known as "Suicide Forest" among tourists. Paul starred in the YouTube Red Original film The Thinning, which now has a 5.9/10 rating on IMDb. On top of that, his new Originals are on hold, as well as the planned sequel to The Thinning.

Paul's channels were removed from YouTube's Google Preferred programme, where brands sell ads on the top five per cent of the platform's content creators, the BBC reported.

A day after YouTube's Twitter statement, the video platform announced it is putting several projects involving Logan Paul on hold indefinitely, and would be removing his channel from their Preferred Program.

State voter rules are reasonable
Ohio's system of elections is once again under national scrutiny, this time for the way in which voter rolls are kept up to date. A federal appeals court panel in Cincinnati split 2-1 past year in ruling that Ohio's process is illegal.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokeswoman said in a statement. The move to cut ties with the vlogger comes just days after the company actually issued its own statement on the incident.

Paul deleted the video and issued two apologies before announcing plans to suspend his vlog temporarily so he could "take time to reflect". It reiterated that suicide was not a laughing matter and added that it should not be "a driving force for views".

Soon after Hell broke loose, Logan posted a video and written apology on his YouTube and Twitter accounts. "You deserve to know what's going on", the video-sharing site said. Not unlike Netflix Originals, YouTube Red Originals are films or TV shows created by YouTube which feature some of their most famous content creators. Rather than stop filming and retreat, Paul and his band of morons filmed the body, made fun of the deceased man, and then uploaded it all to YouTube.

Liza Koshy accepts the Choice Female Web Star award and Logan Paul accepts the Choice Male Web Star Award. Before the suicide video brought his trip to a sour ending, highlights included videos like WE FOUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF TOKYO (there is nearly no actual fighting) and REAL LIFE POKEMON GO IN TOKYO (mostly just Paul and friends being rude in Pokemon onesies).

YouTube has revealed its "further consequences" previously hinted at in a series of tweets about embattled vlogger Logan Paul.
