More recently, one of YouTube's biggest stars, Logan Paul, was lambasted for his ill-conceived video set in Japan's so-called "suicide forest", which featured a semi-blurred corpse hanging from a tree for several minutes.

The statement said. "Many of you have been frustrated with our lack of communication recently", the statement begins.

In recent months, advertisers and others have complained about the unfiltered nature of some videos involving children and popular stars such as Logan Paul - the second round of such scrutiny in the past year. You deserve to know what's going on.

In an open letter earlier this week, YouTube said "suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views". As Anna Akana put it perfectly: 'That body was a person someone loved.

For those unfamiliar with the whole debacle, the YouTuber posted a video on December 31, showing a suicide victim in Japan's Aokigahara Forest, commonly referred to as "Suicide Forest".

"Logan Paul's previously announced project with Blackpills is no longer in development, and Blackpills will not be pursuing it at any time in the future", the production company and app told Variety in a statement.

Paul, who has not responded publicly to any statements released by YouTube or Japanese officials, has chose to take some time off to reflect on his offensive behavior.

With Paul's fan base of more than 15.5 million subscribers, his YouTube consists largely of young children. These channels also have some of the most interesting content, which are also brand safe.
