YouTube hasn't shut the door on working with Logan Paul

Share

Particularly about the inexplicably popular YouTuber Logan Paul and their decision to yank the floppy haired "influencer" following his horrifically disrespectful video of a suicide victim hanging in the notorious Japanese suicide forest.

Google has chose to step up its monitoring process and will reportedly start vetting YouTube channels more strictly from now on. The company expressed that it is upset about the video and is searching for ways to ensure videos in that nature never make it to the video-sharing website. Many apparently believe YouTube needs to remove Paul's channel permanently, although given the growing proliferation of robot tweets in the Twitterverse, it's really hard to say which critics are real and which ones are Memorex.

YouTube has chose to cut ties with Logan Paul following a firestorm of criticism over the vlogger's controversial Japan "Suicide Forest" video.

YouTube also condemned Paul's actions and stated that suicide should never be used as a joke or a means for viewership. 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.


"Everything is evolving so fast", Kyncl said. Amid the Paul flap-up and other brand safety concerns, YouTube is reportedly reimagining its Google Preferred ad package, and will henceforth vet channels using human and technological moderation.

As for whether Logan Paul would be welcomed back into the Youtube community eventually, Kyncl and Daniels are making no promises. YouTube severed ties with Paul less than two weeks later. 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".

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokeswoman said in a statement earlier this week. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of "Foursome" and his new originals are on hold".
