YouTube has cut ties with blogger Logan Paul after backlash from a controversial video he posted on December 31 that included footage of a person who died from a suicide.

"In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul's channels from Google Preferred," a YouTube spokesperson said.

YouTube received backlash for its delayed response, waiting 11 days to address Paul's video. The video, which received six million views before being taken down, immediately ignited a social media firestorm.

The video had featured a blurred image of a man apparently hanging from a tree in Japan's so-called "suicide forest", Aokigahara.

Paul apologised for the content in a video and tweeted that he was taking a break from posting online content.

"Suicide is not a joke," Paul said after deleting the video. "Depression and mental illness are not a joke. We came here with an intent to focus on the haunted aspect of the forest. This obviously just became very real, and obviously a lot of people are going through a lot of s--t in their lives."
