Logan Paul may face 'further consequences,' says YouTube

YouTube has cut ties with Logan Paul after the viral streaming star posted a disturbing video on December 31 that showed footage of a man who had killed himself in a Japanese forest.

YouTube said Tuesday via Twitter that it was "looking at further consequences" against Paul and stated that "suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".

Here's the full texts of YouTube's open letter:Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. In addition, YouTube said Paul will not feature in the upcoming fourth season of comedy series Foursome.

The vlogger also reported in a lengthy post that he did not weigh the consequences when he posted the controversial video. Paul's account, however, has not been taken down or suspended.

"In light of recent events, we have made a decision to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred", a YouTube spokeswoman said in an email statement.

The community previously commented about the platform being too slow to act on the situation, which YouTube addressed by saying: "It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying".

YouTube has announced it is removing disgraced vlogger Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred, which had provided him with a substantial income.

"Foursome" is a show produced by AwesomenessTV and is featured on YouTube Red, which is a subscription-based, ad-free video offering. "We partner with safety groups such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline to provide educational resources that are incorporated in our YouTube Safety Center".

As reported by The Verge, Paul rescinded the video and issued two public apologies, citing his desire to raise general awareness on mental health and suicide.

Paul, said to be worth $14 million, also released an apology over the vlog, which he shockingly said was meant to be "fun".
