YouTube cuts some ties with star vlogger Logan Paul

The report comes just after YouTube confirmed it was removing Logan Paul from the Google Preferred group, which could reportedly slash his ad revenue by 50 percent. Additionally Paul will not feature in season four of "Foursome" along with his new Originals series being put on hold.

YouTube has dropped the hugely popular video blogger Logan Paul as the fallout from the 22 year old's highly controversial "suicide forest" video in Japan rumbles on. It has also sent its condolence to the family and friends of the man in the video.

YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner, the company 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. The forest is internationally known as a suicide black spot.

YouTube has made several financial decisions regarding their business relationship with Logan Paul.

How did a dead body end up on YouTube? The video streaming website was also under criticism when Paul posted the video because the site reviewed it and still posted it and they didn't even take down the video Paul did.

The Ohio native quickly removed the video from YouTube after a backlash. It's been hinted he may be punished further, but for now the millionaire can still earn money from YouTube's nonpreferred platform.

YouTube previously posted a statement on its Twitter page, stating that the platform stood against the YouTuber's actions. But the recent Logan Paul controversy seemingly caught YouTube flat-footed. Prior to its removal, the video amassed well over one million views. That was followed by reports that ads from major advertisers were running alongside hateful and risky videos in Google Preferred's program.

Paul announced earlier this month he was taking a break from making YouTube videos "to reflect". "Good job YouTube, better late than never".

This means that the fate of The Thinning: New World Order is in question.

Logan Paul attends 102.7 KIIS FM's Jingle Ball 2017 presented by Capital One at The Forum on December 1, 2017 in Inglewood, California. This time, YouTube apologized for the "lack of communication" and mentioned that there will be more news to come. The company offers those videos to advertisers. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences". The company handled the situation with the rules it had in place, albeit slowly.

Logan Paul, who has more than 15 million subscribers on YouTube, later posted an apology on Twitter, saying he had been "misguided by shock and awe".
