YouTube Finally Speaks Out About Controversial Logan Paul Video

As for whether Logan Paul would be welcomed back into the Youtube community eventually, Kyncl and Daniels are making no promises. You deserve to know what's going on", "Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. In turn, creators with channels in Google Preferred get a better cut of the advertising revenue than those on Google's lower-tier advertising programs. The video was taken down following a slew of complaints from viewers and celebrities, but it was more than a week before further action was taken by YouTube.

Logan's channel can still be viewed on YouTube, but they have been removed from YouTube's Google Preferred platform, which features its most popular content in packages for sale to advertisers.

"It's insane - the haters think they're having an effect on us, and if the haters knew how much love was out there and how much support was out there, they'd shut their freakin' mouths", he said in an Instagram video. But YouTube came under fire for not meting out a more serious punishment.

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.

Initially YouTube issued a "Community Guidelines strike" against Paul.

YouTube assured its audience that in addition to dishing out consequences for Logan, it will also be taking steps to prevent something like this from happening again.

The company said it had shut down its original projects with the 22-year-old vlogger, who has more than 15 million subscribers, and he would no longer appear in its comedy series Foursome.

"Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views". He recently uploaded an apology video on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwZT7T-TXT0 ), explaining how sorry he really is and that "this is an unforgivable mistake" and he hopes that he can soon be forgiven by all the people of social media. YouTube severed ties with Paul less than two weeks later.

Eric Dahan, co-founder and CEO of Open Influence, an influencer marketing firm that works with brands like Coca Cola and BMW, says the controversy has woken up YouTube to the havoc that the missteps of one of its top content creators can wreak on its global brand.
