Paul, who has more than 15 million subscribers on YouTube, later posted an apology on Twitter, saying he had been "misguided by shock and awe". Paul was supposed to star in The Thinning: New World Order, but the project has been put on hold. Last night, YouTube responded by, among other things, kicking Paul out of Google Preferred.

Paul was also removed from Google Preferred, a premium advertising scheme on videos by the most popular YouTubers.

Paul's next and last public communication was a tweet on January 3, where he said he's "taking time to reflect".

YouTube and Google have been hit with a string of bad publicity over the past year that has advertisers concerned. According to YouTube's guidelines if a channel receives three strikes in three months it will be deleted.

On Wednesday, YouTube finally came up with a statement on the video, stating that "Suicide is not a joke, nor should it ever be a driving force for views".

The company believes that it will able to beat a Nvidia 1080 Max-Q with thin-and-light device that has long battery life. The chip maker has also launched the latest and most powerful IntelĀ® NUC created to complement the latest processor.

In its open letter, YouTube expressed that it was equally "upset" by Paul's video. No one knew for sure what those consequences would be, but now it's becoming clear that the former Viner is not going to get away with his actions scot-free. With Google Preferred, individuals who create content are assured of getting access to the revenue collected from advertisers. In the video, Paul is seen calling out "Yo, are you alive?" and then, "Are you fucking with us?"

And while it admitted it had taken its time, the company also announced it will "have more to share soon on steps [it's] taking to ensure a video like this is never circulated again".

Despite trying to make amends on more than one occasion, Logan Paul managed to become the comic book villain literally. He followed this lapse in judgment by making an apology, but it turns out that it was too little too late.

Both Paul and PewDiePie are in the top-10 earning YouTube vloggers, trousering millions of dollars for their videos which largely comprise of playing video games and carrying out stupid pranks. Online comments have called the Japan video, which garnered millions of views on YouTube before it was taken down, "disrespectful" and "disgusting".

Paul's video was up for hours before he himself took it down, causing users and critics of YouTube to ask why the platform didn't take down his video immediately, even after admitting that "the video appeared to have violated its standards".
