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

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.

Things are not looking any better for Logan Paul, nearly a month after his controversial video he filmed from Japan’s “suicide forest” which showed a dead body hanging.

Since his return to YouTube, the digital creator has since put out an awareness PSA, only to overshadow it by joking about taking the “Tide Pod challenge” — a meme that has spread across the internet in which people attempt to eat the detergent capsules; and most recently, tasering a dead rat.

YouTube has now pulled all ads from his channel.

“After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul’s YouTube channels,” YouTube said in a statement. “This is not a decision we made lightly; however, we believe he has exhibited a pattern of behavior in his videos that makes his channel not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.”

In the wake of his controversies, Logan has also lost a series deal with Blackpills digital studio and was also cut from YouTube Red’s original series Foursome, and The Thinning sequel has been put on hold.

Logan Paul Shares First Vlog Since Controversial Video: 'I'm Not Going Anywhere'

Logan Paul is making his return to vlogging.

The 22-year-old YouTuber shared his first vlog since going dark on social media following his controversial suicide forest video one month ago.

In the video, Logan opens up about what he’s being doing during his break and the aftermath of the incident including a lawsuit, YouTube cutting his AdSense and a petition to get him removed from the site.

“I took the blackout, I met with suicide prevention experts, I made the suicide Be Here Tomorrow video, as you guys know I pledged to donate $1 million to suicide prevention organizations. I’m immersing myself in that world…I’m not going to pretend like it didn’t happen,” Logan said.

He later added, “Even though I f**cked up, like I’m an idiot, it doesn’t feel good to have millions of people to tell you to go die.”

“I know for a fact everything I do from this point forward will get criticism…because I’m a very polarizing person…But I can promise you one thing guys. I’m not going anywhere,” Logan concluded.

“It’s odd, because Michael [Strahan], I’m 22 years-old,” he said. “It’s not like I’m making content necessarily for kids. Sometimes I cuss, sometimes I make inappropriate jokes.”

Logan adds, “I want to make jokes that kids my age will like. I’m my own demographic.”

“I think parents should be monitoring what their children are watching more,” he continues. “But at the same time. It’s not like I’m a bad guy. I’m a good guy who made a bad decision.”

“It’s been tough because ironically I’m being told to commit suicide myself,” Logan says about the backlash he’s received on social media.
