YouTube Cuts Business Ties With Logan Paul

YouTube has cut financial ties with Logan Paul following outrage after Paul posted a video mocking a suicide victim. The company announced that it has cancelled his upcoming YouTube Red movie “The Thinning: New World Order,” a sequel to his previous YouTube Red movie, “The Thinning.” The company has also removed Paul from Google's preferred ad network. “In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” a YouTube spokeswoman said in a public statement. “Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season four of ‘Foursome’ and his new Originals are on hold.”
