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.

This decision by YouTube disavows Logan Paul, who has become one of the channel's biggest stars. In turn, creators with channels in Google Preferred get a better cut of the advertising revenue than those on Google's lower-tier advertising programs.


"Everything is evolving so fast", Kyncl said. The video was taken down following a slew of complaints from viewers and celebrities, but it was more than a week before further action was taken by YouTube.

YouTube has finally taken a stand and has released a statement regarding vlogger Logan Paul and his controversial video in Japan's "suicide forest". YouTube said on Twitter this week that critics were right to be frustrated by its initial lack of response. There was an immediately backlash of public outrage, and though the video was quickly taken down, the damage was done.


As for whether Logan Paul would be welcomed back into the Youtube community eventually, Kyncl and Daniels are making no promises.

It follows the huge backlash over Paul's video entitled "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest", which showed him and his friends laughing at the body of a man hanging in Paul later apologised for the clip, which was viewed more than a million times before it was taken down, saying it was "wrong" and "misguided".A YouTube spokesman said: "In light of recent events, we have made a decision to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred". YouTube also said it would not feature Paul in the fourth season of its series "Foursome" and would put other work on hold.


The popular video platform has now removed Paul from Google Preferred, a program created to ensure that brands sell its ads alongside the top 5 percent of YouTube's content creators. Google had recently announced it will be expanding it staff members by adding 10,000 more employees who will be focused on the task of flagging videos deemed inappropriate for ads.
