As many may know by now, YouTube has been under fire for their lack of response towards Logan Paul's disgusting video which included images of a body of someone who had apparently killed themselves in Japan's "suicide forest", but today they wrote an open letter to their followers on Twitter. As Anna Akana put it perfectly: 'That body was a person someone loved.

Google had already set out to hire 10,000 more human moderators to keep a closer watch on what content reaches the public, following a series of blows to their reputation as a dependable platform for advertisers; over the past year some advertisers have become wary after their brands appeared in adverts along side inappropriate content, including videos supporting terrorism and racism.
