Eleven days after YouTube star Logan Paul posted a video featuring the body of a person who committed suicide, YouTube says it will take his channel off its Google Preferred section for advertisers. It also won't feature him in the upcoming season of YouTube show "Foursome," and won't air his new movie "The Thinning: New World Order," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Backstory: On New Year's Eve, Paul posted a video of himself and a group of friends venturing into Japan's Aokigahara Forest, frequently referred to as the "Suicide Forest," and making jokes. Paul took it down following intense criticism but not before it was watched over 6 million times. Earlier this week, YouTube said that Paul had received a strike and that it was looking into "further consequences."
