YouTube Puts Logan Paul Film On Hold, Removes Him From Preferred Program

YouTube Puts Logan Paul Film On Hold, Removes Him From Preferred Program

YouTube's premium ad program is no longer part of the "Logang", as fans of Logan Paul are sometimes called.

Paul starred as the older brother of Jenn McAllister's character, Andie, on Foursome, which premiered its third season on Red, YouTube's ad-free subscription streaming service, on November 1. Without Google Preferred, however, which gives companies the ability to sell ads on videos produced by the top five percent of YouTube creators, Logan faces a loss of revenue. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of Foursome and his new Originals are on hold".

Although his dad, Greg, says that Logan would return to the platform, it doesn't seem like that's the case at all.

To recall, Paul's video titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest", which was shot in Japan's suicide forest, was removed from YouTube shortly after receiving backlash.

On Jan. 3, three days after posting the video, Paul announced on Twitter that he was stepping away from posting videos "for now", and "taking time to reflect". The vlogger also reported in a lengthy post that he did not weigh the consequences when he posted the controversial video. Critics blasted the video as Paul exploiting human suffering for his channel.

'Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week'. The video, which initially had 6 million views before Paul's team took it down, featured Paul and his friends encounter an apparent dead body of a suicide victim. As YouTube star Anna Akana noted, though: "That body was a person someone loved".

In a statement spread across a series of tweets, the company acknowledged that people had been "frustrated with our lack of communication" and hinted that it was considering the removal of Paul's vlog channel.

"It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying". Logan Paul later claimed that the monetised upload was an attempt to create suicide awareness.
