YouTube Execs Open Up About Logan Paul's Future on Site

"Logan Paul's previously announced project with Blackpills is no longer in development and Blackpills will not be pursuing it at any time in the future", the company said in a statement to Variety.

YouTube has finally taken a stand and has released a statement regarding vlogger Logan Paul and his controversial video in Japan's "suicide forest".

For many years, YouTube and other platforms emphasised that they are tech companies and not media companies as they don't create content.

YouTube severed ties with Paul on Wednesday, removing him from its lucrative Google Preferred ad tier, writing him off of the YouTube Red series Foursome, and also putting a sequel to Paul's YouTube Red movie The Thinning on hold.

Paul's channel, Logan Paul Vlogs, which has more than 15 million subscribers, is still active on YouTube and advertisers can still choose to advertise on his videos, or they can opt out.

This decision by YouTube disavows Logan Paul, who has become one of the channel's biggest stars. You're right to be.

YouTube in an open letter on Tuesday said it was "upset by the video that was shared last week", saying that "suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".


"We believe he's made missteps", Robert Kyncl, YouTube's chief business officer, told reporters at the Television Critics Association Press tour today (January 13).

"We've put all his projects on hold indefinitely, and we'll see in the future", Kyncl said. I get views. I did it because I thought I could make a positive ripple on the internet, not cause a monsoon of negativity. Many people believe his actions were inconsiderate of those who lost a family member or friend due to suicide.

YouTube said the images violated its policies.

He also said the channel will soon announce changes that will further protect the YouTube community. At the moment the petition has over 450,000 signatures.

Paul's claims that his son plans on returning to his channel but is taking a break for now.

It's time that YouTube and other social networking services got serious about establishing real, identifiable and enforceable rules governing their services in such a manner that reasonably good taste prevails, but in such a way that cranks and trolls do not unduly influence what users of such services see or wish to see.
