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, 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 was in the top 5% of most-viewed YouTube content — but he’s clearly taken a hit since posting the video he shot in Japan’s so-called Suicide Forest.
Despite the hit, Paul’s father says his son will be returning to vlogging soon.
