Logan Paul Is Becoming Officially Cancelled And We're Only Two Months Into 2018

Logan Paul Is Becoming Officially Cancelled And We're Only Two Months Into 2018

The down fall of Logan Paul.

We've been hearing the name "Logan Paul" for the last two months now due to the scandal surrounding him recording a video of himself in front of a dead body that recently committed suicide. The platform, YouTube, didn't really set forth real consequences on him immediately following the video but more or so to the four hundred million content creators by implementing new policies that prevent them from even creating videos and hurt the content creator community.

He recently went on an apology tour and spoke the message of making sure his younger viewers, who are his main fanbase, are protected from inappropriate and violate content and are also well informed about suicide.

But then he comes back online after a three-week hiatus and he decides to bring back the viewers by using a taser on two dead rats. Logan Paul showed that he didn't learn his lesson even after the public scrutiny and backlash over his actions. Now we are seeing the punishments being enforced by the company himself.

In a recent interview with prominent Youtuber Casey Neistat, Youtube executive chief business officer Robert Kyncl spoke on the recent policy changes to the platform since the scandal happened. He didn't address the Paul situation directly but said this:

We were trying to formulate our response, and of course with Logan and a lot of his projects for original productions, there are hundreds of people involved, people whose paychecks depend on it,” he says. “We don’t want to make a rash decision that impacts so many people’s livelihoods. It’s not just Logan. It’s many other people.”

The interview was done at the end of January after new content creator policies were implemented and before Logan Paul's recent video caused controversy. So let's just go through all of his punishments that have been put forth in the last seven weeks.

He's been banned from the country of Japan after disrespecting and offending the culture and people. He's been either fired from his TV show, The Foursome, on YouTube Red after being on for four seasons. The sequel to his YouTube Red movie, The Thinning: Uprising, has been put on hold of release as producers plan to recast his character.

He's been taken off of Google preferred and demoted to earning basic ad revenue instead of the high earning ad displays. His projects that were in development have been canceled. The clothing company, Maverick, is suing Paul for $4 million for copyright their name for his clothing line. Now, As of February 9th, 2018, YouTube has temporally suspended ad revenue from his YouTube channels.

YouTube's golden boy, know as the Kim Kardashian of YouTube is watching his empire fall apart from under his feet. The top tier of the crop is suffering the consequences of his reckless and idiotic actions. This is a message to people who take part in social media and want to be content creators.

The constant need to stay relevant and the high of fame and money can cause you to lose all sense of morality and common sense. Let this be a lesson to millennials that once you post something online, you are putting yourself in situations where there are consequences.

The Ultimate List Of 'One Tree Hill' Moments That Left Us Shook

There's only one Tree Hill.

Late last semester, I was in desperate need of a new Netflix show to start watching. I casually inquired to my roommates if I should start watching "One Tree Hill." Both having watched the show before, and slightly horrified that I've never even seen a single episode, they wholeheartedly urged me to begin the emotional journey that is "One Tree Hill." The show is quite a doozy at nine seasons, but I powered through all the ridiculous, melodramatic, and, above all, ups and downs that the multitude of characters experience. I have way too many thoughts concerning this show, but here we go.

Here are some of the best things about this show:

1. Brooke & Peyton's Friendship

2.Haley & Nathan's First Kiss

3. The Cracker Jack Box Prize

4. The Boytoy Auction

5. Lucas and Nathan's Budding Friendship

6. Whitey's Tough Love And Wisdom

7. Jake Being The Best All-Around Guy

8. Lucas's Heartfelt Speech To Brooke In The Rain

9. Peyton Bonding With Her Biological Mother

10. Karen & Keith Getting Together

11. Mouth Being The Ultimate Friend

12. Haley & Nathan Renewing Their Vows

13. The Ravens Winning The Basketball Championship

14. Lucas Declaring His Love To Peyton

15. Haley & Nathan Having Jamie

16. The Heartfelt Farewell To The River Court After Graduating High School

17. The Transformation Of Brooke Davis

18. Brooke & Peyton Reuniting In Tree Hill

19. Haley & Nathan's Little Family

20. Quentin & Jamie

21. Lucas & Peyton Getting Back Together

22. Deb Knocking Nanny Carrie Out

23. The Dog Eating Dan's Heart

24. Lucas & Peyton Getting Married

25. Peyton & Lucas Having Sawyer

26. Nathan Getting Into The NBA

27. Brooke & Julian's Relationship

31. Lydia Scott Arriving

32. Brooke Telling Julian She's Pregnant

34. Chase Being The Best Bar Manager

35. Chris Keller Returning

36. Keith Forgiving Dan

37. Clay & Quinn Getting Engaged

38. Clay & Quinn & Logan Becoming A Family

39. The Cast Singing Along To The Theme Song

40. This Iconic Line

"One Tree Hill" is definitely a show that gives you some serious feelings, and because of that, I think it's one of the best teen dramas ever made. Lucas, Nathan, Brooke, Peyton, Karen, Keith, Whitey, Jamie, Deb, Mouth, Skills, Clay, Quinn, Millie, Chase, Chris, and even Dan will always have a place in every OTH fan's heart. There is, after all, only one Tree Hill.
