"You're right to be", the company said. "You deserve to know what's going on", YouTube tweeted, though it appeared not to explicitly apologise for its slow response and what looked to be a lack of action over the Logan Paul channel.
After Paul posted a video of a dead body he filmed hanging from a tree in Japan's colloquially titled "suicide forest", it's no surprise that YouTube and Google would want him out of its Preferred program.
Fellow YouTuber Anna Akana, who has openly discussed her younger sister's suicide on her channel, expressed her disdain for the video, saying: "That body was a person someone loved".
Paul later apologised for the clip, which was viewed more than a million times before it was taken down, saying it was wrong and misguided. But with Google's technology and monetary clout, there's nearly certainly more YouTube can do to tackle problem videos that get uploaded onto it. In the video, Paul and his crew spot a dead body in the forest and approach it, later laughing about the experience.

YouTube faced criticism for not responding quickly enough to the video, something the site acknowledged in its statement.
YouTube prohibits violent or gory content posted in a shocking, sensational or disrespectful manner, the company says.
It was not the first time YouTube's PR image has suffered because of its own content creators.
The company, which relies heavily on artificial intelligence and users to identify material that violates YouTube guidelines, has recently pledged to hire an additional 10,000 staff members to help combat the spread of inappropriate videos.
