After Logan Paul incident, Google Preferred YouTube videos will face further vetting

YouTube: upset by the video of body in Japan

Logan Paul loses another major gig following suicide video backlash

Suicide victims are often found in the 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.

Furthermore, by removing Paul from the Google Preferred program, he will not be able to sell ads, which means that there YouTube has effectively stripped him of his ability to earn money through their platform. Google expressed its disapproval and condemned Paul's suicide video, highlighting that suicide should never be seen as a light thing or be exploited as a means to gain more viewers.

Daniels, speaking during YouTube's executive session, said the company will look to develop breakthrough, original scripted content that will reflect the network's attributes of innovation, community and diversity in a very crowded TV environment. However, it did not detail just what those consequences would be at that point. In a tense executive session, Daniels and Kyncl explained their decision to halt Paul's projects as well as what steps they're taking to prevent similar situations like this from occurring with their young (and notoriously boundary-pushing) artists.

He posted an apology following criticism of the controversial video, saying he "should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through".

"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. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold," Alphabet Inc's YouTube, said in a statement. Google had recently announced it will be expanding it staff members by adding 10,000 more employees who will be focused on the task of flagging videos deemed inappropriate for ads. Paul, 22, is one of YouTube's top content creators, regularly drawing millions of views from his mainly youth-orientated audience.
