Could Logan Paul's 12 million euro Empire fall?
According to the press release, Paul's repeated failure to correctly label his videos for YouTube's advertisers seems to be his main offense. And after saying Paul may face further consequences for the suicide video, YouTube said it would address "egregious" content from all creators. If Paul's content doesn't evolve, he could be expelled from YouTube's Partner Program altogether, effectively killing his ability to earn money through the platform.
In the new spate of videos posted as Paul returned from an extended hiatus following the suicide forest controversy, the 22-year-old also encouraged the unsafe Tide Pod challenge (swallowing dishwashing detergent capsules) that's been slammed as risky by health officials.
Casey Neistat has over eight million subscribers on YouTube and burst into the limelight when he started uploading daily vlogs in 2015.
Well, it didn't take long for YouTube personality Logan Paul to run afoul of the video-hosting platform once again.
But you know what, I don't care about Logan Paul. One of the biggest vloggers on the website, Paul caused huge controversy after he released a video that included footage of a dead body hanging in Japan's "Suicide Forest".
Paul made numerous apologies and said he was "taking time to reflect". I'm not going anywhere. Earlier in that same vlog, Paul takes a fish out of a pond to give it CPR as a joke.
As always, people like Logan Paul (literally). get away with murder.
YouTube ads aren't Paul's only source of income, however: His vlogs also serve as infomercials for his "merch", apparel and accessories emblazoned with his "Maverick" logo. You can read YouTube's statement via YouTube Creators' Twitter account.
