YouTube Finally Speaks Out About Controversial Logan Paul Video

Logan Paul

Paul now has three YouTube Red projects that are all on hold, Logan Paul Vs. and The Thinning - New World Order and he will be written off of Foursome.

It was also decided that Logan will no longer play Andie's (Jenn McAllister) older brother, Alec, on season four of YouTube RED comedy Foursome, and his upcoming movie, The Thinning: New World Order, is now on hold indefinitely.

Numerous video bloggers and internet insiders believe that these actions were a little too late.

Despite the saga, experts say Paul may still have made up to $96,000 from the Aokigahara forest video. "Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently", the service wrote.

Golden Globes speech leaves many hoping Oprah Winfrey will run for president
Oprah Winfrey won over the Golden Globes , and that was good news for Weight Watchers International Inc. investors. And though polls show his approval up slightly since, Trump is the least popular first-year president on record.

The site added that Paul's video violated its guidelines and it was "looking at further consequences". Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. But most of Paul's videos are problematic. When this situation unfolded, Paul was in a middle of an adventure in Japan. The forest is internationally known as a suicide black spot.

He posted two apology videos for his 15 million subscribers and announced a break from YouTube to reflect on his actions. Paul and his colleagues found a dead body and recorded the encounter.

Paul later apologised for the clip, which was viewed more than a million times before it was taken down, saying it was "wrong" and "misguided". The video included several shots showing the body of a man who had killed himself.

On Jan. 1, Paul apologized for his actions and stated that the controversial video's original intention was to create a dialogue regarding suicide awareness. The video has since been taken down, and Paul has issued numerous statements of apology. YouTube took similar action past year when PewDiePie made anti-semitic comments.
