Here’s why YouTube hasn’t banned Logan Paul for good | Code Media

Some people believe YouTube star Logan Paul should be kicked off YouTube for good.

YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki is not one of those people.

Paul, who has almost 17 million YouTube subscribers, is currently in YouTube’s doghouse for a few questionable videos — one in which Paul filmed what appeared to be a suicide victim from Japan’s Aokigahara forest, and a second in which he tased a dead rat.

As punishment, YouTube has “temporarily” suspended ads on Paul’s YouTube videos, which means Paul won’t make money from ads running before his videos.

Some believe Paul’s behavior warrants a more severe punishment. A petition with more than 610,000 signatures says his video of the suicide victim was “disgusting and shouldn’t be tolerated.”

Wojcicki, though, says Paul shouldn’t be kicked off for good despite calling his videos “a pattern of egregious behavior.” The reason? He hasn’t violated the company’s three strikes policy, she said.

“We do have a three strikes rule, and if somebody violates [our policies] three times, we do terminate those accounts and we do that all the time,” Wojcicki said from Recode’s Code Media Conference in Huntington Beach, Calif. “He hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes.”
