  • YouTube Pares Back Logan Paul Partnership After Suicide Video Post

YouTube initially released a statement about the suicide forest video after it was uploaded and taken down, sending sympathy to the family of the loved one who committed suicide and was featured in Logan Paul's vlog. The action by YouTube whose parent company is Google serves to show how the company is dealing with controversial content.

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.

Part of Logan Paul's video schtick includes global travel, where he goes to other places and interacts with locals in various brash, if not offensive, ways.

India launches 31 satellites in single mission
ISRO is helping not just India but several other countries in putting communication, navigation and other satellites into orbit. The micro satellite would be India's 100th satellite in space around the earth's orbit.


The streaming giant said Paul's channels would no longer feature in Google Preferred - a service that gives advertisers access to top YouTube channels to target 18 to 24 year olds. It is uncertain at this time if Pauls Youtube Red thriller "The Thinning" will still air later this year. It's also placed Logan's upcoming original content on hold, Deadline reports. With 15 million subscribers, Paul is estimated to have made approximately $12.5 million from his online video antics. Ms. Mason also said that all YouTube pending projects that involved Mr. Paul would be delayed. The video was posted and titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest" while the thumbnail of which was of Paul standing next to a blurred out dead body. Paul would have to accrue three account strikes within three months for YouTube to terminate his account (YouTube reportedly hit Paul's account with one strike for this incident).

In comparison, after PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, posted anti-semantic content, Disney Maker Studios dropped him and YouTube Red canceled the second season of his Halloween special - replacing him with Logan's brother Jake by the way. You're right to be. Many have also pointed out that the video was, in fact, taken down voluntarily by Paul and not by YouTube. "You deserve to know what's going on". Two days later, Paul issued a statement on Twitter, saying that he would be stepping away from the vlogging process to regroup.

Paul immediately faced intense scrutiny over the video as an all-out social media war between the Logang, Paul's faithful followers, and critics that included Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul, Game of Thrones and X-Men movie actress Sophie Turner, and the vloggers.
