YouTube have finally taken action against controversial vlogger Logan Paul

Amid widespread criticism, Paul took the video down and repeatedly apologized.

A few days ago, YouTube star Logan Paul came under a lot of fire for publishing a disrespectful video featuring his trip to the Japanese Aokigahara suicide forest.

"Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently", YouTube said in an open letter to viewers posted to Twitter. You're right to be.

A YouTube representative said in an official statement, "In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

The famous vlogger was harshly criticized all over the world for uploading an astonishing video showing the body of a suicide victim in Japan's "suicide forest" to his channel. As Anna Akana put it perfectly: "That body was a person someone loved".

Earlier this week, YouTube had promised "further consequences" for Paul following a now-infamous video featuring a dead body.

The popular blogger has over 15 million subscribers on YouTube, many of whom are children.

Logan Paul's vlog on "suicide forest" took the audience by storm.

Female lawmakers plan to wear black to Trump's State of the Union
More recently, the group spearheaded a call for a Congressional investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Trump. The move comes after almost every woman at this year's Golden Globes wore black to show their support.

The video was viewed 6 million times before being removed from Paul's YouTube channel.

For many, social media giveth fame.

In a string of tweets, YouTube posted an apology in a series of tweets on their official Twitter page.

YouTube's comments follow a brief statement issued shortly after the video went viral January 1.

This is the first time YouTube has stated that Paul's video violated the "community guidelines". (One of those guidelines states, "It's not okay to post violent or gory content that's primarily meant to be shocking, sensational, or disrespectful.") But they are apparently looking at implementing "further consequences" removing the original video.

"YouTube has turned into nothing but a battle of who can shout the loudest and shocking clip bait rather than good creative content that used to do well".

A YouTube spokeswoman did not immediately respond to request for further comment. You can call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or for Spanish speakers at 1-888-628-9454.
