Nearly two weeks after Logan Paul’s infamous trip to Tokyo
, Japanese police have announced that he could be charged with at least four different crimes after viewing his videos.
The news comes as YouTube released a statement confirming that Paul would be punished for his misdeeds.
“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred,” a YouTube spokesperson said
. “Additionally, we will not feature Logan in Season 4 of ‘Foursome’ and his new originals are on hold.”
Now, Japanese authorities who have viewed his other videos
have discovered that Paul could be charged with at least four different crimes: public indecency, interference with business operations, destruction of property, and countless traffic violations.
“Plus he’s left video evidence, on his own YouTube channel,”
said a former police detective, according to the Daily Beast
. “We haven’t seen such a dumb criminal since those idiots uploaded videos of themselves bullying a convenience store clerk and stealing cigarettes [in 2014].”
Although his video in Aokigahara
was offensive and in poor taste, it is unlikely that he violated any Japanese laws.
Paul, who has not responded publicly to any statements released by YouTube or Japanese officials, has decided to take some time off to reflect on his offensive behavior. His father, Greg Paul, took to Instagram to tell fans that his son would be back soon
, calling anyone who disagreed with Logan Paul’s actions “haters”.
“It’s crazy — 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.
It has yet to be determined if Japanese police will move forward with pressing charges against the disgraced YouTuber.
