Following the massive debacle caused by Logan Paul when he uploaded a video of a dead body in Japan’s ‘suicide forest’ many were calling for the popular YouTuber to be banned from the website.
However, YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcicki has finally shared her thoughts on whether or not Logan should be removed from the site.
Speaking at Recode’s Code Media conference in California yesterday, she explained the reasoning behind why Logan is still able to upload, saying he didn’t do anything wrong in the website’s eyes.
‘We do terminate accounts all the time,’ Wojcicki said, before revealing the company has a ‘three strikes’ system for violating policies. ‘He hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes.’
Instead of being banned outright, the 22-year-old had his ad revenue stripped and isn’t able to advertise on his videos – which are watched in the millions.
In regards to that move, Wojcicki said: ‘We think that’s actually a pretty strong statement.’
