Paul's video, filmed in Japan's Aokigahara Forest, showed the body of a man who had committed suicide, though the face was blurred.

YouTube has officially dropped Logan Paul as a preferred ad partner and begun removing him from projects in the wake of the controversy surrounding his "Suicide Forest" video. He was supposed to star in a new YouTube movie called The Thinning: New World Order, a sequel to the film YouTube and Paul released two years ago. 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 scandal started shortly after Logan posted the clip on his YouTube channel, his subscribers accusing him of being insensitive and posting trash content for click-bait purposes.

YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner, the company says. Although the video was removed within 24 hours, it managed to garner over 1 million views and the viewer expressed disappointment on uploading such an eye-hurting video on YouTube.

Liza Koshy accepts the Choice Female Web Star award and Logan Paul accepts the Choice Male Web Star Award. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of Foursome and his new originals are on hold". After the public uproar that followed when Logan Paul did that very stupid thing on December 31, YouTube is now taking action.

Despite the graphic nature of the video, Paul uploaded it to YouTube.

The company went on to tweet the words that many people had been thinking, which was "suicide is not a joke" and shouldn't be the main force of racking up views.
