Logan Paul competence still have a prolonged way to go before he’s kicked off YouTube for good.
The polarizing video blogger has spent new weeks at the core of debate over a span of heavy videos he posted to his page — including one featuring the physique of a self-murder victim.
Yet his YouTube comment stays active, and the video-sharing company’s CEO Susan Wojcicki says Paul hasn’t disregarded the company’s three-strikes-and-you’re-out policy.
“He hasn’t finished anything that would means those 3 strikes,” she pronounced at a media discussion hosted by Recode.
YouTube suspends Logan Paul’s ad income after bad function
History shows YouTube has typically been miserly about totally banning an comment due to controversial behavior, and instead mostly opts to demonetize a page as a form of punishment.
Some accounts have been banned for displaying horrific calm or function in their videos. Among the inhuman offenses that have led a YouTuber to be henceforth deactivated embody the indignity of animals or child, as good as horrible tongue or activities.
One of the many high-profile examples of a YouTuber getting banned occurred last November, when the comment “Toy Freaks” was taken down for what the company vaguely characterized as a “violation of the policies.”
The account’s videos centered on a singular father, Gregory Chism, and his two daughters — both under 10 years old — in creepy and mostly disturbing scenarios. The videos enclosed scenes in which one or both girls ate baby food, simulated to be infants, separate up something they ate or were left in pain.

At the time, Chism pronounced YouTube had told him his videos were garnering viewership from people who didn’t have the “best interests” of children in mind, according to Variety.
“While it is disturbing to me that anyone would find inapt pleasure in the video skits, we deeply conclude YouTube’s concerns for my family and we could not be happier with having had this conspicuous experience,” he said.
Toy Freaks ranked within YouTube’s top 100 many noticed accounts and had over 8.5 million subscribers before the channel was taken down.
Another channel — a dark comment called Boots666 — was taken down in 2016 for featuring videos of someone abrasive tiny animals with their boots. The comment seemed to be run by the same person behind a distant tamer account, BootsMade4Crushing, which featured videos of someone abrasive unfeeling objects like food and toys with boots.
Logan Paul is ‘ironically’ being told to kill himself
An 18-year-old Canadian user named Evalion with 40,000 followers, meanwhile, was banned a couple months after for uploading mixed videos in which she spouted extremist and horrible vitriol, including praising Adolph Hitler and uttering anti-Semitic and anti-black diatribe.
Her comment was banned after she uploaded a video where she sang happy birthday to Hitler and displayed cupcakes with swastikas, according to reports at the time.
It’s misleading how YouTube’s “three strikes” order factored into those accounts being banned.
Paul, 22, first sparked debate at the finish of 2017 when he shared footage of what seemed to be the physique of a man who’d hung himself in Japan’s Aokigahara forest, a plcae famous for its high rate of suicides.
In the video, Paul primarily stressed that suicide, basin and mental illnesses “are not a joke,” but after giggled while expressing his startle from seeing the body.
He apologized twice and took a mangle from YouTube amid the successive backlash, yet he shared another divisive video where he shocks a passed rodent with a Taser on his return to the website.
Earlier this month, YouTube cut Paul’s ad revenue, but Wojcicki done it transparent YouTube didn’t consider his offenses serious adequate to close down his channel.
She also remarkable that they “terminate accounts all the time.”
