Paul's share of the revenue will have come after YouTube had taken a roughly 50 per cent cut, meaning the company also stands to make tens of thousands of dollars from his controversial Japan trip. The film, a sequel to Paul's popular YouTube Red sci-fi thriller The Thinning, was announced in late November and was expected to drop on Red, YouTube's ad-free subscription streaming service, later this year. It was a person in their network who allowed the video to go up and be up without a warning.

Logan Paul, the social media influencer with millions of followers across several social media platforms, has finally been punished by Google and YouTube.

YouTube bars violent content that is shown in a shocking or disrespectful way, the company says. It's hard to get worse than filming a dead body for views, but apparently Logan Paul likes a challenge. Paul has also been pulled from the series "Foursome", and his other original projects are "on hold". If a video is graphic, it can only remain on the site when supported by appropriate educational or documentary information and in some cases it will be age-gated.

Both Paul and PewDiePie are in the top-10 earning YouTube vloggers, trousering millions of dollars for their videos which largely comprise of playing video games and carrying out stupid pranks. These channels are typically among the biggest and most watched on YouTube; think top influencers and creators like Logan Paul, Lele Pons, Casey Neistat and Marques "MKBHD" Brownlee. Paul also issued an apology for his video, which was also criticized as being tone deaf and self-praising.

YouTube has a serious problem with inappropriate content.

"We want advertisers to have peace of mind that their ads are running alongside content that reflects their brand's values", she wrote in December.

YouTube concluded its statement by admitting it had taken a long time to respond to the issue. It reiterated that suicide was not a laughing matter and added that it should not be "a driving force for views". "The channel violated our community guidelines, we acted accordingly, and we are looking at further consequences".

Logan Paul, who has more than 15 million subscribers on YouTube, later posted an apology on Twitter, saying he had been "misguided by shock and awe".
