YouTube Cuts Role, Revenue Stream

Logan Paul‘s on the outs with YouTube after posting a video of a suicide victim — he’s been cut from one of its original series … and he’s taking a major hit to the wallet.
YouTube announced Wednesday it was dropping Paul from the YouTube Red comedy, “Foursome.”
The bigger shot though came from Google Preferred (the top 5% of most-viewed YouTube content) which says it will no longer aggregate Paul’s multimillion-subscriber channels for advertisers. That basically means he’s cut off from his main source of YouTube income.
Paul — as he’s no longer part of Google Preferred — has clearly taken a hit since posting the video he shot in Japan’s so-called Suicide Forest.
Despite the blow, Paul’s father says his son will be returning to vlogging soon.
