Logan Paul is Getting Punished

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First, the article:

https://www.polygon.com/2018/1/10/16871562/logan-paul-youtube-red-thinning

 

Many of you heard about Logan Paul's video of his visit to the Suicide Forest in Japan.  In this video, he filmed and laughed at a suicide victim who had hung himself, which is disrespectful beyond belief.  As I would've expected, Logan Paul was met with severe backlash for this video, which he eventually took down.  Later on, Logan provided a slew of apologies for his video, not all of which seemed sincere, and YouTube was slow to condemn his actions.  Many of us expressed disgust regarding YouTube's slow response and lack of disciplinary action, but guess what?  YouTube has now done some things about this!

 

Quote

YouTube is beginning to punish Logan Paul in the wake of controversy.

 

The company announced today that it will not move forward with a planned YouTube Red movie that Paul was supposed to star in at this time as the project is on hold. The Thinning: New World Order was supposed to be the sequel to Paul’s 2016 YouTube Red movie, The Thinning. A YouTube representative also confirmed to Polygon he is removed from Google’s top tier preferred ad program.

 

“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” a YouTube representative said. Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of ‘Foursome’ and his new Originals are on hold.

 

I didn't like YouTube's slow response, either, but better late than never!  Thus far, I'm seeing a lot of similarities between Logan's punishment and PewDiePie's punishment for the one anti-Semitic video he put out last February.  Speaking of which...

 

Quote

Since the Paul controversy, PewDiePie has repeatedly said that if Paul remains unpunished, PewDiePie should be allowed to release the sophomore season of his show, which he claims is already finished.

 

"The man has a point," the guys at YouTube headquarters mumble to each other.  xD 

 

It doesn't sound like Logan Paul is getting fully demonitized yet, but I hope things are headed in that direction.  Bottom line is that the video was an abomination that made Google look bad, YouTube look worse, and Logan Paul look absolutely despicable.  And God knows how many kids watched that video!  Ugh!

If I were logan paul I would just take a nice vacation somewhere for a month and forget about all this. I would basically just "go dark" for a month. Visit someplace nice and forget all this crap. 

 

If the internet still hates me after a month, I would just "retire".

Real easy solution, don't watch his videos. Want to punish him for being a complete ass? Don't watch him being one.

That's too smart for people to do. People just get offended by everything and want to feel important by asking for "divine" punishment instead of just getting their heels off and on a another road.

"Paul was supposed to star in at this time as the project is on hold. The Thinning: New World Order "

I Think the key word here is 'Supposed' as this does imply a restructure to the Movie so I could end up being release later on just without Paul. 


Some people prefer a challenge, I just band my head against a wall until my method works...

you'd be surprise what people do to keep money coming in. And I highly doubt youtube would Drop a movie they have already invested in because of this which is why I'm suggesting the Character replacement. If it means he gets killed off or goes missing within the first 5mins then fine. I Just don't see them wasting money on a production they already started.

 

Just my Opinion, Stupid Opinion I may add :D

i dont think youtube can win with this. their either can a, effectively, finished film and take the loss, re-film most of the movie or they release it and get destroyed by people because Logan Paul is a stupid <REDACTED> <REDACTED> who <REDACTED> <REDACTED> <REDACTED>.

He alredy has millions l, unless he’s j debt from all the spending he does it really doesn’t matter. He can still sit back and laugh with millions in his pocket,

 

personaly i I didn’t get offended or care about the video of the dead guy and I’ve had a friend who hung himself in high school. People are just sissy’s now.  

 

Why dont we go and boycott live leak if seeing dead people is so bad. You see 80 suicide vidoes uplaoded to live leak daily

Anyone remember when YouTubers where getting the whole channels terminated for using misleading tags to boost views? I reckon his channel should have just been terminated when that video came out.

I agree. At least it would make people realize that full time YouTube isn't going to be a worthwhile formula forever. The bubble will eventually burst and leave many people with a giant hole in their resume.

“If it makes money it makes sense”. Youtube is a business and if there is revenew to be made then they are still consodering it.  It will be fully cut if Paul loses support from fans.

 

Thats how I see it.

He should actually get his lawyers on the horn and see how much in damages he can extract from YouTube. YouTube, being the terribly managed organization that it is, likely has broken far more aspects of their contracts than you might think, plus the reality is that they kept the video monetized during it's controversy and high viewership count. YouTube is now trying to save face at the expense of Logan, which means that YouTube has now taken actions detrimental to him. This could get very expensive by the time it's all say & done.

 

He should personally rethink a few things, but that's irrespective of what he should be doing right now.

If he turned around and sued YouTube I think his career as popular idiot would be over. Not that's not over already, but even more so

I’m going to be the one person to say, this doesn’t matter. Oooh! He’s not on the top tier! So what?? He had 30 MILLION VIEWS on his “I’m sorry” video. People think that this is going to hurt him when it won’t.

It's always about the money.  My injustice meter went full scale deflection.  If this had been anyone with less than X subs they would have had any chance of making money from youtube removed.      You tube (and google) is definitely not a level playing field, they look after the dollars.   


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.
