The famous vlogger was harshly criticized all over the world for uploading an astonishing video showing the body of a suicide victim in Japan’s “suicide forest” to his channel.

Despite the removal of the video and his apology, the incident has been in the spotlight for nearly two weeks now.

The California-based company has removed Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred, putting its projects with the vlogger on hold.

“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” a YouTube spokeswoman said in a statement. “Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of ‘Foursome’ and his new Originals are on hold.”

The news stirred a wave of reactions on Twitter, with some users praising YouTube for its actions…

But many others slammed the platform for putting the vlogger’s video on the trending list and then being reluctant in responding to the incident…

There were those who warned the company that it might actually lose its platform, as Paul’s 15.5 million subscribers may backlash…

According to the company’s policies, if his notorious video is deemed to have broken the community guidelines, YouTube would give Paul’s once successful channel a strike. If the channel receives three strikes within a three-month period, then it will lead to its removal from the service.

Logan Paul posted a video showing him and his friends walking in the Aokigahara forest, Japan’s infamous “suicide forest”, and stumbling into a body hanging from a tree. Despite seeing the corpse, they continue to film it from different angles while appearing to joke around. After being slammed throughout social media, the popular vlogger took to Twitter and YouTube to issue apologies.
