Logan Paul removed from top-tier ad platform as he faces backlash

At the end of December 2017, Mr. Paul was highly criticized for posting a video from a Japanese forest that is believed to be a suicide destination.

To brush up, YouTube's guidelines specifically states that "it's not okay to post violent or gory content that's primarily meant to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful". 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. In the thread, YouTube said, "We were upset by the video that was shared last week", and "We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we're sure you do too".

The above actions come after YouTube came in for some severe criticism for being soft on Paul even after being so insensitive as to depict a dead body of a suicide victim hanging. The video's thumbnail also included an image of the body. The video in question was taken down by Paul within 24 hours, but it had already gained 6 million views. But most of Paul's videos are problematic.

There is something deeply disturbing about the notion that this is where civilization has brought us - to an epoch in which 22-year-olds are visiting suicide sites to make unfiltered reaction videos in search of YouTube clicks and money. The newly announced actions appear to be those consequences. The company acknowledged this, saying: "You're right to be [frustrated]". YouTube Red is YouTube's paid subscription service, one element of which is YouTube Red Originals.

Things aren't all lost for Paul though, for the vlogger can still look to monetize his videos via the YouTube Partner Program. The suicide video was removed and thus not monetized.

'Dark Souls: Remastered' Rekindles The Flame On May 25
Dark Souls as a series has garnered critical acclaim for its intense combat difficulty matched by an unforgiving nature. It features Dark Souls Remastered , Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin , Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition .

Paul now has three YouTube Red projects that are all on hold, Logan Paul Vs. and The Thinning - New World Order and he will be written off of Foursome. "Good job YouTube, better late than never".

As a result, whether or not The Thinning: A New World Order will launch is still unclear.

But some of the YouTube community felt that the streamer hadn't done enough.

However, that didn't satisfy the masses who were metaphorically calling for Paul's head. According to YouTube's guidelines if a channel receives three strikes in three months it will be deleted. Considering the fact that this situation hasn't damaged YouTube monetarily (at least not immediately), we may not see any additional rules from YouTube. It's hard to get worse than filming a dead body for views, but apparently Logan Paul likes a challenge.
