After sacking vlogger Logan Paul, Google to now screen premium YouTube videos

After sacking vlogger Logan Paul, Google to now screen premium YouTube videos”

"Logan Paul's previously announced project with Blackpills is no longer in development, and Blackpills will not be pursuing it at any time in the future", the production company and app told Variety in a statement.

Paul announced earlier that he was stepping away from posting videos following the outcry over his "suicide forest" video.

A petition on that demands his YouTube channel be deleted had by Thursday morning. Google expressed its disapproval and condemned Paul's suicide video, highlighting that suicide should never be seen as a light thing or be exploited as a means to gain more viewers. In the statement, YouTube claimed that "The channel [Paul's] violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences". However, it did not detail just what those consequences would be at that point.

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. According to a source at the website who spoke to Bloomberg, YouTube is planning to vet videos in the top-tier Preferred Ad Programme more closely, with more human moderation. You're right to be. Paul later posted a video apologizing for his actions, and stated that he would take a break from social media.

Logan's channel can still be viewed on YouTube, but they have been removed from YouTube's Google Preferred platform, which features its most popular content in packages for sale to advertisers.

According to Google, The Preferred Ad Programme includes "the most popular YouTube channels among USA 18- to 34-year-olds" and "the most engaging and brand safe content on YouTube". "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold".

In recent months, advertisers and others have complained about the unfiltered nature of some videos involving children and popular stars such as Logan Paul - the second round of such scrutiny in the past year.

YouTube has been having troubles recently regarding ads displayed alongside inappropriate content, and this incident adds more fuel to the fire. "YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner", YouTube said in a statement.
