In the tweets, YouTube also stated that like many others, they were upset by the video.

"Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views," YouTube tweeted, inserting a quote by actress Anna Akana stating "That body was a person someone loved. You do not walk into a suicide forest with a camera and claim mental health awareness."

YouTube also decided to take out Logan Paul's account from its Preferred Program where popular creators are offered to advertisers. He was also cut from the 4th season of YouTube's original series 'Foursome', and "his new Originals are on hold," a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement.
