YouTube's CEO says Logan Paul doesn’t deserve to be kicked off the platform

YouTuber Logan Paul has made waves for several controversial vlogs in recent weeks, but he apparently hasn’t violated one of the streaming site's main policies as of yet.

What will it take for YouTube to ban Logan Paul? Well, according to YouTubes CEO, three strikes, none of which Paul has... yet. 

 

The controversial YouTuber, who faced worldwide backlash after uploading a video from Japan on Dec. 31 that featured the body of a man who had recently committed suicide, returned to vlogging on the video sharing site earlier this month and continues to make awful decisions with the content he shares. After returning, the 22-year-old tased dead rats at his home and gave his dead fish CPR.

I'm often reminded of how big of a reach I truly have & with great power comes great responsibility... for the first time in my life I'm regretful to say I handled that power incorrectly. It won't happen again.

Though Pauls videos resulted in YouTube removing ads on his content and the cancellation of his YouTube Red projects, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said the company isnt going to kick him off the streaming site just yet. 

 

"He hasnt done anything that would cause those three strikes," Wojcicki said at the Code Media conference on Monday. "We cant just be pulling people off our platform. They need to violate a policy. We need to have consistent [rules]."

 

Sadly, we haven't seen the last of Paul on YouTube.
