The video, posted on December 31, was titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest..." and included Paul shouting "Yo, are you alive?" Paul starred in the YouTube Red Original film The Thinning, which now has a 5.9/10 rating on IMDb.

Almost a day after the tweeted response, YouTube has announced it is removing Logan's channels from Google Preferred and will not feature Logan in the Web series Foursome.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", YouTube said in a statement. YouTube also won't feature Paul in the fourth season of Foursome, a YouTube Red show, and Paul's other Originals projects have been put on hold. The streaming platform responded on January 9, admitting that its response had taken time.

YouTube is dropping Paul, one of its biggest stars from its Google Preferred platform, which aggregates top content for advertisers.

Initially YouTube issued a "Community Guidelines strike" against Paul.

They then asked him whether the rumours that he was having a baby were true, to which he said: "I don't want to talk about that". Remember when you were 20, you didn't want anything to do with a baby, ' but added that Kylie's 20 is more 'like 35'.

Following Paul's video, a petition was made to have his YouTube Channel deleted.

The company went on to tweet the words that many people had been thinking, which was "suicide is not a joke" and shouldn't be the main force of racking up views. Akana is a comedian and actress with a large YouTube following who had condemned Paul's video. That doesn't preclude him from running ads like many YouTube channels do, but likely means lower CPMs than those that Preferred creators see. But most of Paul's videos are problematic. Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner called Paul an "idiot" and said his apology was "self-praising".

In Paul's first apology, he said he had wanted to raise awareness about suicide, and denied he was being controversial in order to promote his social media content.

YouTube says it has punished an American blogger over a video that appeared to show the body of a suicide victim.

The platform promised that it is looking into further consequences for Paul and his Youtube channel, which enjoys over 15 million followers. The scandal started shortly after Logan posted the clip on his YouTube channel, his subscribers accusing him of being insensitive and posting trash content for click-bait purposes.
