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

The move is said to be a part of Google Preferred a premium advertising programme

Paul, 22, is one of YouTube's top content creators, regularly drawing millions of views from his mainly youth-orientated audience.

YouTube said Wednesday it is removing popular American vlogger Logan Paul from its Google Preferred platform and putting future projects with him on hold, after Paul posted a video on the platform of a suicide victim in Japan. Daniels announced changes to those guidelines in December to the company that will further protect the YouTube creative community and the service's relationships with advertisers who don't want to be tied to videos like Paul's "misstep".

Videos that are part of Google Preferred have always been governed by YouTube's general and posting rules that define offensive and unacceptable content. However, it did not detail just what those consequences would be at that point. It adds that it was taking steps to ensure similar videos are never circulated again.


Without his ability to make the most out of his YouTube videos and majority of his projects removed as companies attempt to distance themselves from him, Paul's fate remains unknown. 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.

It follows the huge backlash over Paul's video entitled "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest", which showed him and his friends laughing at the body of a man hanging in Paul later apologised for the clip, which was viewed more than a million times before it was taken down, saying it was "wrong" and "misguided".A YouTube spokesman said: "In light of recent events, we have made a decision to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred. 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.

The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds.
