YouTube cancels Logan Paul's advertisement deals following controversial video


In comparison, after PewDiePie, whose real name is Felix Kjellberg, posted anti-semantic content, Disney Maker Studios dropped him and YouTube Red canceled the second season of his Halloween special - replacing him with Logan's brother Jake by the way.

The YouTube star Logan Paul has been punished for posting a video in which he joked about discovering the body of a Japanese man who had killed himself. Then Google removed Kjellberg from their Preferred Premium Ad Tier Status.

YouTube announced that it will remove Paul from his original YouTube series "Foursome" and will hold off on releasing "The Thinning: A New World Order", which was expected to arrive this year.

Sorry brands: Facebook says it'll show more friends and family posts
However, Facebook does conveniently and constantly offers me the opportunity to pay them to show a post to more of you. Facebook is testing a new product meant to help users find local news, events and various community updates.

Google Preferred aggregates YouTube's top content and sells it to advertisers.

YouTube has not taken internal action as of yet.

Amidst outrage from the YouTube community and some celebrities, Logan Paul removed the video from YouTube and issued two apologies before announcing he would take time off from YouTube "to reflect". It reiterated that suicide was not a laughing matter and added that it should not be "a driving force for views".

Canada convinced Trump will pull out of free trade deal
They have so far yielded little firm indication of whether a deal can be reached to update the pact, the Canadian officials said. Canadian government officials say there's an increasing likelihood that US will give six-months' notice to withdraw from.

While Paul can still monetize his videos, he won't be earning the same money per click as he did before. "You deserve to know what's going on", the video-sharing site said. That doesn't preclude him from running ads like many YouTube channels do, but likely means lower CPMs than those that Preferred creators see.

Numerous video bloggers and internet insiders believe that these actions were a little too late. He followed this lapse in judgment by making an apology, but it turns out that it was too little too late. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences", the statement reads. Additionally, the streaming site went on to say that they prohibit the gory content that Paul shared.

Part of Logan Paul's video schtick includes global travel, where he goes to other places and interacts with locals in various brash, if not offensive, ways. Online comments have called the Japan video, which garnered millions of views on YouTube before it was taken down, "disrespectful" and "disgusting".

Trump Tower: fire at president's New York HQ
The blaze was reported at 721 5th 6:58 a.m., FDNY said, describing it as both being on the top floor and roof. Starting around 7 a.m., smoke billowed from one corner of the building for a while before most of it dissipated.

Things aren't all lost for Paul though, for the vlogger can still look to monetize his videos via the YouTube Partner Program.
