And it’s one, two…no, he’s still got one more.
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki pronounced Monday that controversial vlogger Logan Paul wasn’t kicked off the streaming service since he hadn’t disregarded the three-strikes rule.
“We do cancel accounts all the time,” Wojcicki pronounced at Recode’s Code Media. “He hasn’t finished anything that would means those 3 strikes.”
Instead, YouTube temporarily dangling the 22-year-old’s ads, slicing off his income stream, which Wojcicki called “a flattering clever statement.”
“This is not a decision we done lightly, however, we trust he has exhibited a settlement of function in his videos that creates his channel not only unsuited for advertisers but also potentially deleterious to the broader creator community,” the company pronounced in a matter to the Daily News last week.
Paul’s problems began with a New Year’s Eve video in which he filmed himself with a self-murder victim in Japan’s Aokigahara forest.
He was cut from “Foursome,” the YouTube Red comedy that premiered its third deteriorate in November, and his YouTube Red film “The Thinning: New World Order,” a supplement to his 2016 “The Thinning,” is on hold.
After a month-long break, Paul returned with a hazard to critics to “crucify me, vilify me.”
He also resumed his videos, including one of him intolerable a passed rat.
Wojcicki pronounced at the discussion that YouTube may change its three-strikes rule, but that it’s unlikely.
“On the one side is censorship, and on the other side is too much leisure of speech,” she said. “It’s a difficult and very nuanced place where that line is drawn.”
