Nice to see they have their priorities

YouTube has demonetised the latest episode of our weekly YouTube News show 'YouTuber News', which focused solely on the Logan Paul 'suicide forest' video and backlash that followed.

The video featured no footage from Logan's video, no images of the body (we would never do that), and, as is typical for YouTuber News, there was no swearing. We can find no YouTube guidelines that we appear to have violated in order to get the video restricted.

This follows hot on the heels of YouTube restricting a video Nathan Zed about the subject and - lest we forget - never demonetised Logan's 'suicide forest' or in fact restricting it in any way.

Seeing as we are one of the few sites that focus solely on YouTube and one that tries to prevent a more balanced and less negative view of YouTubers (where possible) than conventional media sites, this is, frankly, not a good look.

Here's the video:
