For Some Unknown Reason, YouTube STILL Wants To Work With Logan Paul…

As disgraced a YouTube star as he may be right now, Logan Paul STILL has a shot to get back in YouTube's good graces — but for what, exactly??? Paul's projects have been placed on hold "indefinitely" with the network, and even though he can still reap ad revenue from people watching his videos, he has [...] As disgraced a YouTube star as he may be right now, Logan Paul STILL has a shot to get back in YouTube's good graces -- but for what, exactly??? Paul's projects have been placed on hold "indefinitely" with the network, and even though he can still reap ad revenue from people watching his videos, he has been stripped of his Google Preferred status ever since that shameful stunt he pulled in Japan. Related: Just How Rich IS Logan Paul? But now, it sounds like even though projects are being pulled away from Logan Paul left and right, YouTube STILL isn't ready to fully part ways with him yet. That's according to Robert Kyncl, Google's chief business officer speaking at the Television Critics Association press tour on Saturday sounding like he REALLY wasn't ready to let go of Logan Paul: "We don't know [if we will work with Logan Paul again.] I couldn't really answer that. Everything is evolving so fast and the best thing we can do is make sure we put all projects on hold indefinitely. Actions should speak louder than words. Logan has the opportunity to prove that ... I think, obviously, we believe he's made missteps, unfortunate missteps. He's expressed remorse very quickly. And uh, is learning from the experience." Unreal. The very definition of white male privilege... both for Logan, and that always-controversial and possibly racist brother of his, too. Un. Real. [Image via YouTube.].....»»

As we previously reported, the YouTube star has since deleted the extremely graphic clip from his channel which actually shows the body of someone who seems to have committed suicide. The potentially triggering video was slammed on Twitter for its harmful and insensitive content, and Logan's apology hardly touched on the reality of his actions. Related: Three Months Later, Puerto Rico Is Still In Crisis Mode Now, many are calling for the Internet celebrity to be banned from YT: Dear @YouTube Can you do us all a favour and permanently remove Logan Paul from YouTube, showing someone that has Committed suicide in a video and laughing about it, is not cool Yours sincerely Everyone who has been effected by suicide — Benny (@Beno_ldn) January 2, 2018 My disappointment is two-fold. Logan Paul is an adult who uploaded horrific content, and youtube made it TRENDING. So much wrong with the community. — Hayley Williams (@HayleyWi11iams) January 2, 2018 I do think @YouTube should make a stand and delete @LoganPaul channel. This would be a great start to 2018 — Ashley Horne (@AshleyNHorne) January 2, 2018 While others, like Chrissy Teigen, have suggested people just don't watch his videos: Re: Logan Paul, something I always think about is when people make...ethical mistakes, as in, not-illegal, should we really be trying I ruin their lives and end their careers or accept the apology, personally make a choice to stop watching, and move on. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 2, 2018 An example I have is with a certain clothing company. Years ago the designers said things i personally found horrible about IVF children. I made the choice to simply...never wear or purchase again instead of trying to "end them" — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 2, 2018 So, we have to ask... If you, or someone you know, is thinking about suicide, feeling depressed, or is struggling emotionally, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It's not easy, but it gets better. [Image via Brian To/WENN.].....»»

Kim Kardashian Reveals North Wants A YouTube Channel — But Kanye West Is Totally Against The Idea!

According to the four-year-old's momma, Kim Kardashian West, the youngster is eager to launch her own channel on YouTube. However, it appears as though poppa Kanye West isn't too keen on the idea. Related: Kim K. Confirms Baby #3 Is A Girl Apparently, Nori has been checking out makeup tutorials on the video sharing site and is ready to join in on the fun. Mrs. West explained to Women's Wear Daily: "The other day, it was so funny. My daughter watches so many YouTube tutorials and videos. She was unboxing the My Little Pony ColorPop collection, and I thought to myself, 'I wish I was recording this,' because her reaction was so funny. And then she did makeup on the My Little Pony that they gave and she said, 'Mom, I want to do a YouTube video.'" Sadly, Yeezus is NOT on board with the idea and Kimmie also expressed her concerns about exposing North to the world via social media. She continued: "I don't know if it's something she would really want to do ... but it's always a struggle on how much you want to have exposed or how much access you want them to have to social media." Apparently, as a compromise, they've allowed North to create some tutorials for her family's eyes only. In regards to North's potential social media stardom, Keeks shared: "In the world we live in today, I don't think you ask someone young growing up to not be on social media - that's just cruel. That's like asking [someone] to not communicate." Still, we think the oldest West child should wait a few years before getting online. We mean, there are A LOT of creeps out there. Regardless, this isn't the first time Kim has controlled how a family member uses social media. Per Kardashian West, she used to log into Kendall and Kylie Jenner's accounts in order to keep tabs on them. She dished: "I remember when Kendall and Kylie were growing up. We were so freaked out and we always had their passwords and we would always go check their accounts, and I mean, they were really little. I don't know if they knew we knew." Sneaky, sneaky!! Hopefully Kimye will allow North to be a kid a bit longer, before thrusting the tot into the limelight further. *Sigh* [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»
