YouTube may review its most popular channels for offensive content

  YouTube may review its most popular channels for offensive content It became pretty clear last year that YouTube has a content problem. Last spring, companies like AT&T and Verizon pulled ads because they were found to be appearing alongside extremist videos. Paul's channel was one of YouTube's Google Preferred accounts -- a group of top-tier, highly viewed channels that Google sells ad space on at a higher rate. YouTube pulled Paul's Preferred status yesterday as part of its response to his video, but for content creators that still have that status, those Preferred accounts will now reportedly be vetted in order to make sure their content is appropriate for the brands buying ad space on the videos.

However, Kyncl does think Paul still has a chance to make amends. “Actions should speak louder than words. Logan has the opportunity to prove that,” Kyncl says. Also Read: Logan Paul Gets YouTube Downgrade: Ousted From Google Preferred, Booted From ‘Foursome’.

Though all of Logan Paul ’s projects are “indefinitely” on hold with YouTube , chief business officer Robert Kyncl says they don’t know with full certainty whether they will work with their former star again.

Though all of disgraced YouTube star Logan Paul's projects are "indefinitely" on hold with the video-sharing platform owned by Google, chief business officer Robert Kyncl says they can't know with full certainty whether they will work with him again.

"We don't know," the Kyncl said during YouTube's panel at the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday. "I couldn't really answer that. Everything is evolving so fast and the best thing we can do is make sure we put all projects on hold indefinitely."

However, Kyncl does think Paul still has a chance to make amends. "Actions should speak louder than words. Logan has the opportunity to prove that," Kyncl says.

YouTube implements stricter requirements for partners

  YouTube implements stricter requirements for partners YouTube has been under fire for months over inappropriate content masquerading as kid-friendly videos and popular creators acting out of line. Creators part of Preferred get more per click than their counterparts and have bigger earning potential. The program was recently thrust into the spotlight when it booted popular YouTuber Paul Logan from its roster. Logan was slammed for posting a video showing him and his friends laughing and making jokes upon coming across a body in Aokigahara, Japan's "suicide forest," and claiming that his video was meant to raise mental health awareness.

The two-time 2017 Teen Choice Award winner came under intense fire earlier this month after posting a video titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese suicide forest" that showed a corpse hanging from a tree in Aokigahara forest near Mt. Fuji. He took down the clip a day later, when it had already garnered at least 6 million views and has since apologized for the gaffe multiple times.

Kyncl says YouTube -- who removed Paul's channels from Google Preferred earlier this week, put his new originals on hold and will not feature him in Season 4 of "Foursome" -- acknowledges Paul made mistakes and they aren't trying to sweep that under the rug.

"Specifically as to Logan," Kyncl says. "I think, obviously, we believe he's made missteps, unfortunate missteps. He's expressed remorse very quickly. And uh, is learning from the experience."

Logan has the opportunity to prove that,” Kyncl said. Kyncl believes that Paul has learned from the whole experience, and won’t write him off altogether. Paul himself deleted the ill-advised video, not YouTube .

Logan has the opportunity to prove that," said YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl as he and originals chief Susanne Daniels fielded questions from TV press. Instead, the focus was squarely on Logan Paul , the YouTube star who on Dec.

While Paul will still be able to monetize from his YouTube videos, like any average user, the benefits he reaped from his Google Preferred status, which allows advertisers to identify top content and purchase easy-to-buy ad packages, have been stripped.
