As many may know by now, YouTube has been under fire for their lack of response towards Logan Paul's disgusting video which included images of a body of someone who had apparently killed themselves in Japan's "suicide forest", but today they wrote an open letter to their followers on Twitter.
Aside from the mentioned series, Paul has also been booted out of several projects, which has several people questioning the future of "The Thinning: New World Order", which was announced last November.
Paul, who has not responded publicly to any statements released by YouTube or Japanese officials, has made a decision to take some time off to reflect on his offensive behavior. The move is said to be a part of Google Preferred, a premium advertising programme. Millions more viewers tuned into his apology. Social media reacted with outrage when Paul laughed throughout the distressing situation. "Logan Paul is making millions off of kids' views on his YouTube channel". Three strikes in a three-month period can result in suspension from YouTube.
Last year, Felix Kjellberg, a Swedish vlogger (video blogger) known as PewDiePie who has almost 59 million followers and is very popular with young people, had his original YouTube Red series canceled after the Wall Street Journal reported on videos with racist language and anti-semitic imagery. As Anna Akana put it perfectly: 'That body was a person someone loved. "It's taken us a long time to respond, but we've been listening to everything you've been saying".
Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (NYSE:COG)
Cambridge Investment Research Advisors Inc. increased its holdings in shares of Cabot Oil & Gas by 2.8% in the second quarter. Following the sale, the chairman now directly owns 2,887,018 shares in the company, valued at approximately $80,605,542.56.
It's now unclear how the most popular YouTubers will be affected by this change and if any will speak out if and when their channels experience flagging, demonetization, or other actions from YouTube.
"We expect more of the creators who build their community on, as we're sure you do too". The company will use the combined forces of its 10,000 human moderators and artificial intelligence software to identify videos posted by the biggest channels that violate YouTube's guidelines and are not suitable for advertisements.
Top creators applauded YouTube's handling of the controversy-although the company swung its gavel a week and a half after the vlog in question was posted.
As expected, YouTube took action to penalize Logan Paul for the gruesome suicide video.
