YouTube Finally Issues Response to Logan Paul Controversy

Logan Paul You Tube Statement

Logan Paul You Tube Statement

The company wrote, "An open letter to our community - Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently". You're right to be.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokesman said.

Paul faced fierce criticism after the December 31 video, which appeared to show the aftermath of a suicide in a Japanese forest, with many critics saying the clip was inappropriate and insensitive to people facing psychiatric problems.

He was subsequently criticised, with filmmaker and actor Anna Akana arguing: "That body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness". We know that the actions of one creator can affect the entire community. Many viewers voiced outrage at YouTube for allowing the video to be posted, since it violates the platform's community guidelines. Paul has about 15 million subscribers to his channel, which has not been taken down. Although the 22-year-old vlogger deleted the distasteful video on YouTube immediately after the backlash, other users eventually uploaded a censored version on the popular video-sharing website.

Logan Paul's vlog on "suicide forest" took the audience by storm.

Today, more than a week after the incident, YouTube posted a response on Twitter.

In the apology video, Paul said he had made a "huge mistake" and was ashamed of himself.

YouTube would not comment beyond the official statement. The company has at times struggled to enforce its policies prohibiting violent and gory videos.

Earlier this month the Swedish streaming music service Spotify also reported to be making a "confidential" or "secret" IPO. How the stock fares post-listing will be an ongoing focus for both Wall Street and the tech community.

It was not the first time YouTube's PR image has suffered because of its own content creators.

Ads will still be served on Paul's content through the YouTube Partner Program.

Further, his channel received a "strike", and if three strikes are levelled at a channel in a 3 month period, the channel is removed from the site and permanently terminated.
