Almost two weeks after Logan Paul's infamous trip to Tokyo, Japanese police have announced that he could be charged with at least four different crimes after viewing his videos. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences", the open letter concludes.
With a petition on Change.org, the community demanded his YouTube channel be deleted, and this had over 450,000 signatures Wednesday morning. You deserve to know what's going on.
But while YouTube finally took action against Logan, by removing him from Google's top tier "preferred" ad program and cancelling his upcoming YouTube Red film, a question mark remained over what YouTube would do about the fact that a video featuring a dead body in the thumbnail was allowed to be published and monetised in the first place.More news: Feinstein's Unauthorized Transcript Release Called Legal but 'Bizarre'
Paul had issued an apology on New Year's Day on Twitter after taking down the video, but it did little to silence the critics. 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.
According to Google, The Preferred Ad Programme includes "the most popular YouTube channels among U.S. 18- to 34-year-olds" and "the most engaging and brand safe content on YouTube". The video platform had assured concerned advertisers that Google Preferred features videos of the highest quality, so Paul's controversial suicide video dealt a heavy blow.More news: Huge transfer fee a 'compliment', says Van Dijk
