YouTube is taking action against Logan Paul. The vlogger that posted a video filmed in Japan's Aokigahara forest that showed Paul making jokes about finding a dead body. The video garnered millions of views before being taken down. YouTube has put Paul's YouTube Red movie, The Thinning: New World Order on hold and he was removed from Google's top tied prefered ad program. 

Our hearts go out to the family of the person featured in the video. YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner. If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated. We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center.


Logan Paul has issued two apologies for the video but it's unclear if he'll be returning to vlogging anytime soon. His father said that this won't stop Logan and he's still proud of his son even though he made a mistake.
