YouTube Execs Open Up About Logan Paul's Future on Site

YouTube cuts business ties with Logan Paul amid fallout of suicide video Logan Paul Suicide Forest Video Controversy: A Timeline of Events

The company will use the combined forces of its 10,000 human moderators and artificial intelligence software to identify videos posted by the biggest channels that violate YouTube's guidelines and are not suitable for advertisements.

While YouTube cast its net far and wide with new content regulations introduced a year ago after the, now the company seems to want to zero in on the most popular channels as their videos typically get the most views.

YouTube also added that it will share more information soon on the measures it plans to implement to ensure that such an appalling YouTube video never makes rounds again.

On Twitter, YouTube said it was upset by the video that was shared and suicide is not a joke. There was an immediately backlash of public outrage, and though the video was quickly taken down, the damage was done.

That said, Paul still appears to be repped by his agency, CAA, and his multi-channel network, Studio 71, according to Variety, and TMZ reports that he will be keeping his role in a Jeffrey Reddick-directed horror film entitled Superstition: The Rule of 3's-for now.

But the Frenchman was adamant that he's committed to seeing out his contract. "I've never questioned his commitment or attitude". Wenger also dismissed speculation that he could leave the club himself this summer if Arsenal have another disappointing season.

YouTube has finally taken a stand and has released a statement regarding vlogger Logan Paul and his controversial video in Japan's "suicide forest".

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently.

The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds. YouTube severed ties with Paul less than two weeks later.

"In light of recent events, we have made a decision to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokesperson said. YouTube also said it would not feature Paul in the fourth season of its series "Foursome" and would put other work on hold. It's also shaken the mini digital empire the 22-year-old Paul built out of his prank-and-stunt-filled daily missives on YouTube watched by millions of followers, many of them tweens, teens and kids.

Eric Dahan, co-founder and CEO of Open Influence, an influencer marketing firm that works with brands like Coca Cola and BMW, says the controversy has woken up YouTube to the havoc that the missteps of one of its top content creators can wreak on its global brand.
