"You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness, '" YouTube said.

Last year, Felix Kjellberg, a Swedish vlogger (video blogger) known as PewDiePie who has almost 59 million followers and is very popular with young people, had his original YouTube Red series canceled after the Wall Street Journal reported on videos with racist language and anti-semitic imagery. In a tense executive session, Daniels and Kyncl explained their decision to halt Paul's projects as well as what steps they're taking to prevent similar situations like this from occurring with their young (and notoriously boundary-pushing) artists.

"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 company said in a statement to Variety.

While Paul apologized for posting videos of him in the forests of Japan near what seemed to be a body hanging from a tree, the location is one well-known in the country as a frequent site for suicides. "I want to make sure that we all recognize that a few missteps don't spoil the work of all the other hardworking creators on YouTube". You deserve to know what's going on", "Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week.


The popular video platform has now removed Paul from Google Preferred, a program created to ensure that brands sell its ads alongside the top 5 percent of YouTube's content creators.

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. It's also shaken the mini digital empire the 22-year-old Paul built out of his prank-and-stunt-filled daily missives on YouTube watched by millions of followers, many of them tweens, teens and kids.

YouTube was criticised for moving slowly in response, taking almost two weeks to take action.

This move is in the wake of the recent incident involving popular YouTuber Logan Paul who was taken off the "Preferred" platform for uploading the video of a dead body from Japan's famous suicide forest. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold".
