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

YouTube video layout

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", reads the full statement from a YouTube spokeswoman, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Amid the Paul flap-up and other brand safety concerns, YouTube is reportedly reimagining its Google Preferred ad package, and will henceforth vet channels using human and technological moderation. Paul, 22, is one of YouTube's top content creators, regularly drawing millions of views from his mainly youth-orientated audience. Paul has also been pulled from the series "Foursome", and his other original projects are "on hold".

Paul's channel, Logan Paul Vlogs, which has more than 15 million subscribers, is still active on YouTube and advertisers can still choose to advertise on his videos, or they can opt out.

This isn't the first time YouTube got into a predicament as a result of videos posted on its platform.

NCI Building Systems Inc (NCS) Insider Sells 85424 Shares of Stock

YouTube said the images violated its policies. Paul is one of the platform's biggest stars, with Forbes magazine estimating he earned US$12.5 million previous year. He also advised young viewers on how to win money by gambling.

Paul said he had made a "huge mistake" and was ashamed of himself, and he deleted the video after it caused a social media backlash.

YouTube has been under pressure in recent months due to widespread conspiracy videos and inappropriate content on YouTube Kids. Even in the case of Logan Paul, the video was taken down by him voluntarily. In 2017, the second season of "Scare PewDiePie", featuring creator Felix Kjellberg, AKA PewDiePie, was canceled after controversy arose surrounding anti-Semetic videos posted the creator (once the most-subscribed YouTuber on the planet).

"It's insane - the haters think they're having an effect on us, and if the haters knew how much love was out there and how much support was out there, they'd shut their freakin' mouths", he said in an Instagram video. YouTube said on Twitter this week that critics were right to be frustrated by its initial lack of response.
