The year 2018 hasn’t been good for popular vlogger, Logan Paul.
Following the backlash he received after uploading his Japanese suicide forest video, YouTube has finally cut business ties with him.
Now, YouTube has announced that Paul, whose channel has over 15.6 million subscribers, will lose access to top-tier Google’s ad platform.
A YouTube spokesperson stated, “In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred.”
YouTube has also announced that it won’t move forward with a planned YouTube Red movie, ‘The Thinning: New World Order.’
The movie, which was supposed to be a follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Thinning’ was set to be released later this year.
YouTube has also confirmed that they also issued a strike against Paul’s channel for breaking its community guidelines.
This has reminded us about PewDiePie, who received a backlash for featuring anti-semitic content and got his YouTube Red projects canceled.
Many of Paul’s fans have acknowledged Logan’s intention of releasing the video as to raise awareness about suicide.
Actually, he had ended his controversial video ‘We Found a Dead Body’ on a note that suicide isn’t really a solution for any problems and also gave suicide hotlines of the US, UK and Japan.
Depression, distress and disabilities are just problems which have solutions, but suicide ends your life.
According to WHO, about 800,000 people die committing suicide every year that is about 1.4% of total deaths worldwide.
It has been the second leading cause of death among the 15 to 29 years-olds globally and the eleventh leading cause of death among Americans.
Not talking about problems can elevate your distress. If you are feeling suicidal and need to share your feeling with someone, then don’t worry.
The befriending centers can help you alleviate misery, despair and loneliness, and give you emotional support.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is the US-based suicide prevention network of 161 crisis centers that provides a 24/7 toll-free hotline available to anyone.
You’re alive for a reason so, don’t ever give up.
