Another YouTuber ProSyndicate posted similar videos of the same gambling site, and later it was exposed that the two YouTubers were actually the owners of the site, a fact which they had never disclosed. Even as the Logan Paul controversy continues, other YouTubers are uploading videos highlighting live, illegal activities (trespassing and breaking and entering) on the service without any outcome whatsoever. Kyncl didn't shut YouTube's door on Paul.

"We don't know", Kyncl said. Furthermore, by removing Paul from the Google Preferred program, he will not be able to sell ads, which means that there YouTube has effectively stripped him of his ability to earn money through their platform.

Until then, however, the streaming service has put all of Paul's projects "all of his project on hold indefinitely", said Kyncl, adding that it's still too early to say if this is a permanent severing of ties.

Paul's channel, Logan Paul Vlogs, which has more than 15 million subscribers, is still active on YouTube and advertisers can still choose to advertise on his videos, or they can opt out.

YouTube said the images violated its policies.

Paul's claims that his son plans on returning to his channel but is taking a break for now.

"In light of recent events, we have chose to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred".

"Specifically as to Logan", he said, "I think, obviously, we believe he's made missteps, unfortunate missteps".

It's now unclear how the most popular YouTubers will be affected by this change and if any will speak out if and when their channels experience flagging, demonetization, or other actions from YouTube. "Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of "Foursome" and his new Originals are on hold," Alphabet Inc's YouTube, said in a statement. PewDiePie, the biggest star on YouTube, brought in some flack to the platform previous year as a result of anti-semitic elements in his videos.

YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl and head of original programming Susanne Daniels told reporters that when incidents arise involving YouTube talent, what's most important is to "protect the community" of YouTube creators, advertisers, and viewers.
