It follows the huge backlash over Paul's video entitled "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest", which showed him and his friends laughing at the body of a man hanging in Paul later apologised for the clip, which was viewed more than a million times before it was taken down, saying it was "wrong" and "misguided".A YouTube spokesman said: "In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You deserve to know what's going on. Suicide victims are often found in the forest. We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we're sure you do too.

On Twitter, YouTube said it was upset by the video that was shared and suicide is not a joke.

YouTube assured its audience that in addition to dishing out consequences for Logan, it will also be taking steps to prevent something like this from happening again.

With a petition on Change.org, the community demanded his YouTube channel be deleted, and this had over 450,000 signatures Wednesday morning.

The clip uploaded by Paul on December 31, which had millions of views on YouTube before it was taken down, showed the vlogger and his friends discovering the body, which led to strong and continued backlash. Paul later posted a video apologizing for his actions, and stated that he would take a break from social media.

Google had already set out to hire 10,000 more human moderators to keep a closer watch on what content reaches the public, following a series of blows to their reputation as a dependable platform for advertisers; over the past year some advertisers have become wary after their brands appeared in adverts along side inappropriate content, including videos supporting terrorism and racism.

Paul is one of YouTube's most popular contest creators, with more than 15 million subscribers. This is the last thing we want to be showing our children.
