Controversial social media star Logan Paul feels that YouTube might be censoring content with his name attached – and he isn’t the only major YouTuber to come forward with this claim.
Drama Alert host Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem posted a Tweet on December 5, which claimed that his videos with Logan Paul’s name in the title or tags did poorly in comparison to his other uploads – and even accused YouTube of “suppressing” any videos mentioning the Maverick mogul.
“Every time I make a video with Logan Paul’s name in title or tags the video… the video gets way less views, and fans complain they did not get notifications,” KEEM wrote. “It’s clear YouTube is suppressing videos mentioning him. Even his own content is being suppressed.”
Every time i made a video with @LoganPaul 's name in title or tags the video ( over last 60 days) the video gets way less views & fans complain they did not get notifications.
Its clear @TeamYouTube is suppressing videos mentioning him. Even his own content is being suppressed.

Logan Paul responded to KEEM’s claims with another Tweet on the same day, admitting that he has been seeing similar results on his own content.
“I hate to say this, and I mean I REALLY hate to say this, but I think these are facts,” Paul replied. “Please love me again YouTube.”

KEEMSTAR went on to post a video further detailing the effects of YouTube’s supposed “suppression,” finding a significant difference in views and interactions upon removing Paul’s name from his content.
While YouTube’s past statements have expressed clarity concerning their policies, KEEMSTAR is far from the last YouTuber to call out the website for its “broken” system; massive YouTuber Markiplier likewise speculated that Google Plus’s removal from the site could be throwing a wrench in the platform’s code, resulting in major hiccups throughout the website’s back end.
