YouTube is officially cutting ties with Logan Paul.
The video platform is halting current projects it has with the 22-year-old vlogger who offended many users after sharing a controversial video of an apparent suicide victim in Japan.
A rep for YouTube said, “In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred. Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of ‘Foursome’ and his new originals are on hold.”
The news comes one day after YouTube released an open letter, condemning the internet celeb’s video. The statement said, “Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. You’re right to be. You deserve to know what’s going on. Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week. Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views.”
Paul’s father issued a statement via Instagram. He wrote, “We all screw up. It’s a part of life. Logan is coming back. That is definite. The amount of love that has been coming out has been unbelievable … The haters think they’re having an effect on us. If the haters knew how much love was out there, how much support was out there, they would shut their freaking mouths.”
