Does YouTube enable controversial stars like Logan Paul?

YouTube has dropped blogger Logan Paul from its premium Google ad service and cut him from a starring role in a web series following continued outcry over a video he posted showing the body of a dead man in Japan's so-called "suicide forest".
"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul'schannels from Google Preferred", a YouTube representative said. Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. A selection of videos from publishers the site says are really, really, really trustworthy.
The corporation acknowledged the anger by starting a tweet response on January 9 with the sentence: "Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently".
YouTube also said that Paul's channel, which has 15 million subscribers, received a strike. The video gleaned millions of views and sat on the YouTube Trending page for a while before community members and celebrities including Aaron Paul and Chrissy Teigen called Paul out for his offensive and disrespectful video.
About one year after the YouTube ad-pocalypse shook up the online video website, the company is handing down a punishment to another YouTube star for posting an obscene video. Three strikes within a three-month period triggers termination of the offending account. Or do you think YouTube is more liable for the video going live than Logan is for producing it? YouTube had been silent on the whole incident so far until now. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences", the statement reads. The statement also promised that the company would take steps "to ensure a video like this is never circulated again".
