YouTube mentioned it had stopped “monetisation” on Logo’s platform as a result of he had violated the corporate’s “writer accountability coverage.” Logo denies felony wrongdoing.
“If a writer’s off-platform behaviour harms our customers, staff or ecosystem, we take motion to offer protection to the neighborhood,” a YouTube spokesperson mentioned.
Logo has 6.6M subscribers on YouTube and his movies steadily get thousands and thousands of perspectives. A contemporary interview with Tucker Carlson has been watched 2.5M occasions.
His content material will stay on YouTube, however he’ll now not have the ability to make cash from the movies, which lean closely into web conspiracies about politics, Covid, and UFOs.
Sara McCorquodale, leader government of social media research company CORQ, instructed The Parent that Logo makes an estimated £2,000 ($2,500) to £4,000 according to video, which might equate to as much as £1M a 12 months if he revealed 5 per week.
YouTube’s intervention follows The Instances, Sunday Instances, and Channel 4 reporting allegations that Logo sexually assaulted 4 girls on the peak of his repute.
The Metropolitan Police mentioned on Monday it had gained a “file of sexual attack” in 2003 towards Logo. Officials are involved with the lady, who alleges she was once assaulted in Soho, London.
Logo vehemently denies the claims and has mentioned all of his relationships had been consensual. He has now not commented since publishing a video throughout his social media channels wherein he preemptively denied the “litany” of allegations about his felony conduct.
“The relationships that I had had been completely at all times consensual,” he mentioned. “I used to be at all times clear about that then, nearly too clear. And I’m being clear about it now.”
