“I can’t believe he isn’t shut down by now. I thought he had already been banned.” “[YouTube was] contemplating how much money they were going to lose.” YouTube finally released a statement following Logan Paul’s disturbing video. Yahoo Newsroom readers have serious thoughts as Paul faces the fallout.
One week after star Logan Paul posted a video from Japan’s “suicide forest” and quickly deleted it, YouTube has spoken out. The company says it’s upset about the video, which shows Paul laughing at what seems to be the body of a man who took his own life. Says the video giant: “Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views,” but YouTube didn’t reveal the fate of Paul’s channel.
Many viewers want him to be banned for good, while others see another side: “Removing his ‘channel’ from YouTube is censorship.” Paul has apologized twice and has since taken a break from vlogging; his channel has roughly 16 million subscribers
