This comes almost two weeks after Paul posted a video of him visiting Aokigahara in Japan, also known as the "suicide forest", and prominently featuring a dead human body in the video and in the video's thumbnail. Paul will also not appear on the next season of the YouTube Red comedy "Foursome", where he had been a regular cast member.
YouTube said in a statement that it has removed Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred, which presents top YouTube videos. We should note that Paul, despite being an actual walking bag of garbage, is one of YouTube's biggest and most successful stars, and they have a rather large monetary stake in his "brand". He subsequently posted an apology video, and has not published any videos since then. True to their word, YouTube stripped Logan Paul from their main advertising platform, which will see a considerable chunk of his income taken away along with halting the production of his original content. The company acknowledged this, saying: "You're right to be [frustrated]".
On Tuesday, YouTube released a statement on its Twitter page indicating Paul would be penalized for sharing the inappropriate video with his 15 million subscribers. The video streaming website was also under criticism when Paul posted the video because the site reviewed it and still posted it and they didn't even take down the video Paul did.
Paul, who has parlayed his YouTube popularity into television guest spots and hosting roles at teen awards shows, now faces a hard path forward for his career. Three strikes within a three-month period will cause the platform to terminate an account.

Initially YouTube issued a "Community Guidelines strike" against Paul. It reiterated that suicide was not a laughing matter and added that it should not be "a driving force for views".
This follows hot on the heels of YouTube restricting a video Nathan Zed about the subject and - lest we forget - never demonetised Logan's "suicide forest" or in fact restricting it in any way.
It seems YouTube has taken action against Logan Paul, only one day after the platform tweeted that it was looking to take further action. The Preferred Program, however, happens to be a more exclusive grouping which acts as a guarantee of sorts for advertisers to expect quality video content.
