Paul was filming in the Aokigahara forest in Japan, a popular suicide spot.

Logan Paul took Twitter to make an apology about the video and defended himself by saying that it was all to increase awareness of suicide.

His Originals are also now on hold.

In an emailed statement on Wednesday, a spokesperson for YouTube said, "In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently. "You're right to be", its tweet said. Paul eventually removed the video, apologized, and said he was taking a break from vlogging.

The "suicide forest" video, now deleted from YouTube, can currently be found on other sites and is reportedly being viewed by millions of people.

In a series of tweets, the company responded by announcing it was making changes which would prevent such a video from being shared in future.

"We expect more of the creators who build their community on YouTube, as we're sure you do too", YouTube said in a statement.

YouTube has cut Logan Paul from his Red comedy show and removed him from his main revenue stream. Following the backlash, he posted a video apology.

YouTubers including PewDiePie and Japanese vlogger Yuta Aoki had criticized what they thought was a lax response on YouTube's end. Shortly after the vlog was removed, Logan apologized for the video, insisting he never meant to offend viewers.

YouTube is placing Logan Paul's next movie, "The Thinning: New World Order", on hold.

Without hesitation, users were quick to highlight the fact that YouTube did not in fact "act accordingly" as they claimed to have done- Paul's channel still boasts millions of subscribers and no punishments were issued to the 22-year-old vlogger.
