The company added that Paul's new video blogs on the website are now on hold.

If Logan Paul still doesn't realize how much he effed up by posting a video that featured the dead body of a man who committed suicide in a Japanese forest, hopefully the ramifications will help him understand.

For those unfamiliar with the whole debacle, the YouTuber posted a video on December 31, showing a suicide victim in Japan's Aokigahara Forest, commonly referred to as "Suicide Forest".

The statement said. "Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently", the statement begins. Although Logan apologised, a We The Unicorns video showing more problematic behaviour from his Japan trip went viral on Twitter, resulting in further criticism. You deserve to know what's going on.

"Plus he's left video evidence, on his own YouTube channel", said a former police detective, according to the Daily Beast.

But think about the other recent additions to the MCU's ever-growing slate that featured a single character's name in the title. Schaeffer recently penned Walt Disney Animation Studios' Olaf's Frozen Adventure .

The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds. On Wednesday, Google announced that it had removed Paul's videos from Google Preferred. But many people rightly point out that Paul's actions aren't enough, and Google should take more steps to prevent such videos from being posted online in the first place.

Logan's channel can still be viewed on YouTube, but they have been removed from YouTube's Google Preferred platform, which features its most popular content in packages for sale to advertisers.

Paul had issued an apology on New Year's Day on Twitter after taking down the video, but it did little to silence the critics.

"We built Google Preferred to help our customers easily reach YouTube's most passionate audiences and we've seen strong traction in the past year with a record number of brands", a spokeswoman for Alphabet Inc.'s Google wrote in an emailed statement. The video platform had assured concerned advertisers that Google Preferred features videos of the highest quality, so Paul's controversial suicide video dealt a heavy blow.
