YouTube Cuts Ties With Logan Paul After Suicide Video Controversy
12 January, 2018, 06:22
YouTube has cut ties with actor Logan Paul, who posted a shocking video of himself joking and laughing around a dead body. A YouTube Red movie Paul was supposed to star in, The Thinning: New World Order, has been put on pause. The Thinning: New World Order is now in limbo after it was to be released this year. YouTube's move will cost Paul financially as his videos will no longer earn top-tier cash per click.
On the 9 of January, YouTube's staff posted an official apology, declaring that it expects so much more from its content creators and that this sort of facetious attitude is only blamable but that it affects the entire community as well. The authorities were called, and the video closed with Paul briefly mentioning suicide prevention.
Representatives for Paul did not immediately return requests from Reuters for comment.
The technology company also shared something that American-Japanese YouTuber Anna Akana said. "If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated", a YouTube spokesperson said at the time.
The platform promised that it is looking into further consequences for Paul and his Youtubechannel, which enjoys over 15 million followers. However, YouTube via a series of tweets has assured to take necessary action against this awful act as they say "we'll have more to share soon on steps we're taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again".
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. In light of its recent struggles to police inappropriate content on its platform, YouTube wasn't going to let this slide.
YouTube's action doesn't mean that Paul has been banned from the channel.
