  • YouTube: upset by the video of body in Japan

"Like many others, we were upset by the video that was shared last week", the statement continues.

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.

For those unfamiliar with the whole debacle, the YouTuber posted a video on December 31, showing a suicide victim in Japan's Aokigahara Forest, commonly referred to as "Suicide Forest". We expect more of the creators who build their community on @YouTube, as we're sure you do too.

Paul has not posted any videos in the past week, saying he was "taking time to reflect".

On Tuesday, Jan. 9, YouTube said that Paul's channel violated its community guidelines and it will have consequences.

The video stirred a great deal of controversy and people even started a Change.org petition demanding that Paul's YouTube channel be deleted. Its decision comes more than a week after Paul posted the video, and YouTube received heavy criticism during this time for not removing the channel and not issuing a statement sooner to express its regret to the family of the victim.

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. This is the last thing we want to be showing our children.
