In the video, Paul showed the body hanging from a tree.

The video was posted and titled "We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest" while the thumbnail of which was of Paul standing next to a blurred out dead body. The video's thumbnail also included an image of the body. The video received immediate backlash across the internet, with many noting that a chunk of Paul's following in Youtube are minors.

Despite trying to make amends on more than one occasion, Logan Paul managed to become the comic book villain literally.

The punishment for Paul is sure to be closely watched by media buyers and advertisers, who buy on YouTube's Preferred platform in part to ensure that their ads are being placed next to premium content that is brand-safe and will reach key audience groups. The newly announced actions appear to be those consequences.

Google told partners that it plans to use both human moderators - the company recently announced it will have 10,000 employees focused on the task - as well as artificial intelligence software to flag videos deemed inappropriate for ads.

However, that didn't satisfy the masses who were metaphorically calling for Paul's head.
