YouTube severed ties with Paul on Wednesday, removing him from its lucrative Google Preferred ad tier, writing him off of the YouTube Red series Foursome, and also putting a sequel to Paul's YouTube Red movie The Thinning on hold.
The popular video platform has now removed Paul from Google Preferred, a program created to ensure that brands sell its ads alongside the top 5 percent of YouTube's content creators.
Google reportedly told advertisers that it has a team of 10,000 workers dedicated to the task of moderating the content.
Google's plan isn't much different from previous plans for policing the majority of videos on YouTube.
On Tuesday, Jan. 9, YouTube said that Paul's channel violated its community guidelines and it will have consequences.

Logan Paul became a hot topic of conversation recently, when he uploaded a video to his popular YouTube channel showing the corpse of a man who had recently committed suicide by hanging in Japan's notorious "suicide forest".
Further reports also reveal that Paul has been removed from an original series that he signed with a French digital-media company Blackpills.
"We've put all his projects on hold indefinitely, and we'll see in the future", Kyncl said.
It's now unclear how the most popular YouTubers will be affected by this change and if any will speak out if and when their channels experience flagging, demonetization, or other actions from YouTube.
"It's insane - the haters think they're having an effect on us, and if the haters knew how much love was out there and how much support was out there, they'd shut their freakin' mouths", he said in an Instagram video. In the past, there has been a lot of controversy and speculation surrounding how videos get chosen for YouTube's Trending page as well as its "recommended" and "what's next" suggestions, and it's possible that, with this new vetting, Google could influence what makes "popular" YouTube content even more popular than before.
