By the end of 2017, Google and YouTube were dealing with a sea of bad actors who were publishing disturbing children's content or videos targeted toward kids.

YouTube announced that it won't move forward in making the sequel to 2016's YouTube Red original movie, The Thinning.

The company also dropped the aspiring actor from the upcoming season of YouTube's original comedy series Foursome.

Paul and his entourage of other idiots visited Japan, and in a video that sparked outrage around the world, filmed a dead body they found in Aokigahara.

The video, which has since been taken down, brought an avalanche of criticism to Paul and to YouTube for leaving the video up until it reached more than 6 million views, the Post noted.

He admitted that he made a grave mistake and is ashamed of himself. YouTube also gave his channel a strike (3 strikes in a 3-month period means YouTube could terminate the account).

YouTube has had to deal with a number of brand-safety issues over the past year, and the Paul punishment is the clearest step yet that the company is not afraid to take action to combat the problem, even against its most high-profile channels. You can see it first by subscribing to our YouTube channel, so it's delivered straight to your sub box when it comes out. We should note that Paul, despite being an actual walking bag of garbage, is one of YouTube's biggest and most successful stars, and they have a rather large monetary stake in his "brand".

They are removing him from YouTube Red, as we mentioned yesterday, is what happened to PewDiePie.

The Logan Paul controversy shook the internet, especially the YouTube lovers, massively. It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying.

On Wednesday, YouTube finally came up with a statement on the video, stating that "Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views". As Anna Akana put it perfectly: 'That body was a person someone loved. "You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness". YouTube initially issued the video a "strike" for violating their terms of service, but have now chose to take a more drastic set of actions against Logan Paul. "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences".
