YouTube is officially cutting ties with Logan Paul, the famous Youtube vlogger. Logan offended many users after sharing a controversial video of an apparent suicide victim in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest, where many people take their lives every year.
Paul’s channels were removed from YouTube’s Google Preferred programme, where brands sell ads on the top 5% of the platform’s content creators.
YouTube also said it had put on hold original projects with the US vlogger.
Paul posted the video with a man’s body on 31 December, triggering widespread criticism.
