The video stirred a great deal of controversy and people even started a Change.org petition demanding that Paul's YouTube channel be deleted. The move is said to be a part of Google Preferred, a premium advertising programme. "We don't know, we can't really answer that. everything is evolving so fast". In a tense executive session, Daniels and Kyncl explained their decision to halt Paul's projects as well as what steps they're taking to prevent similar situations like this from occurring with their young (and notoriously boundary-pushing) artists.
YouTube star Logan Paul's fall from grace is complete, according to the channel's Chief Business Officer Robert Kyncl, it was confirmed on Saturday at TCA.
In an open letter earlier this week, YouTube said "suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".
Paul, who has not responded publicly to any statements released by YouTube or Japanese officials, has made a decision to take some time off to reflect on his offensive behavior.
Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You're right to be. 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.
He posted an apology following criticism of the controversial video, saying he "should have put the cameras down and stopped recording what we were going through".
"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.
As for whether Logan Paul would be welcomed back into the Youtube community eventually, Kyncl and Daniels are making no promises. Additionally, the network reports they will not feature Paul in the fourth season of its series "Foursome" and would put other work of his on hold.
