If Logan Paul still doesn't realize how much he effed up by posting a video that featured the dead body of a man who committed suicide in a Japanese forest, hopefully the ramifications will help him understand.

The 22-year-old's YouTube channel has more than 15 million followers and was reportedly worth more than 12 million dollars in advertising revenue last year. It adds that it was taking steps to ensure similar videos are never circulated again.

"It's insane - the haters think they're having an effect on us, and if the haters knew how much love was out there and how much support was out there, they'd shut their freakin' mouths", he said in an Instagram video.

In an open letter earlier this week, YouTube said "suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".

YouTube, which is facing growing condemnation for an increasing number of videos containing graphic or inappropriate content being uploaded to the platform, conceded this week that it took a long time to respond to public outrage.

YouTube has made a decision to cut ties with Logan Paul following a firestorm of criticism over the vlogger's controversial Japan "Suicide Forest" video.

"We expect more of the creators who build their community on, as we're sure you do too". Daniels announced changes to those guidelines in December to the company that will further protect the YouTube creative community and the service's relationships with advertisers who don't want to be tied to videos like Paul's "misstep".

YouTube was criticised for moving slowly in response, taking almost two weeks to take action.

YouTube also removed Paul's channels from its Google Preferred program, which gives brands the ability to sell ads on the top 5 percent of creators on the platform. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of "Foursome" and his new originals are on hold".

The popular video platform has now removed Paul from Google Preferred, a program created to ensure that brands sell its ads alongside the top 5 percent of YouTube's content creators.

The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds.
