YouTube Execs on Logan Paul Scandal: "Actions Should Speak Louder Than Words"

After sacking vlogger Logan Paul Google to now screen premium You Tube videos

However, Logan Paul's channel is still active on YouTube and advertisers can still place their ads on his other videos.

Noting that some of the streaming site's "very young" content creators "get themselves in hot water", Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl emphasized that Paul-whose channel was pulled shortly after the scandal erupted-was basically a rare bad apple among a huge stable of creatives who are not terrible.

But Kyncl told reporters that he felt that while YouTube has had to deal with situations like this, he didn't feel it was all that different from what other networks have had to deal with in terms of their talent, and that these situations haven't changed the ways in which they may vet creators going forward.

"Everything is evolving so fast", Kyncl said. "We've put all his projects on hold indefinitely", Kyncl said. Furthermore, by removing Paul from the Google Preferred program, he will not be able to sell ads, which means that there YouTube has effectively stripped him of his ability to earn money through their platform.

According to Google, "Preferred" is a collection of some of the most popular YouTube channels watched by people between the age group of 18-34 years in the US.

The Xbox One beating out the PS4 might surprise many, as the PS4 is still the best selling console this generation, so far. Who knew? EA actually can still make games for gamers that doesn't appear to be trying to pull any shady business on them.

With millions of videos being uploaded to their platform, which are they then use to generate profit, content platforms such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter should be held responsible for the same content they monetise. "Actions should speak louder than words and Logan has the opportunity to prove that".

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

On Tuesday, YouTube announced that Paul would not be appearing in season 4 of their original series Foursome, or the upcoming thriller The Thinning. Paul is one of the platform's biggest stars, with Forbes magazine estimating he earned US$12.5 million past year.

Kyncl said that damage control in a case like this is primarily about protecting, "the community of creators, users and advertisers".
