YouTube CEO Explains Why Logan Paul Hasn't Been Banned Yet

Ever since his controversial video made headlines, many digital creators and online users have been calling for a ban on Logan Paul on YouTube.

But, according to CEO Susan Wojcicki, it’s not going to happen. Here’s why: Because he didn’t violate any specific policies when he posted the video showing a person who had committed suicide, hanging in Aokigahara, at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan.

“He hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes,” she shared during a conference this week. “We can’t just be pulling people off our platform…They need to violate a policy. We need to have consistent [rules]. This is like a code of law.”

She adds, “What you think is tasteless is not necessarily what someone else would think is tasteless. We need to have consistent laws, so that in our policies, so we can apply it consistently to millions of videos, millions of creators.”

And if you’re thinking that because Logan‘s one of the more popular creators is the reason he’s not banned yet, you’re wrong.

“They might complain about that, but we try our very best to be consistent across everybody,” she added.

YouTube already has pulled the ads from both of Logan‘s channels, and he’s issued an apology video and suicide PSA in response.
