YouTube has come forward to brush off calls for its content to be regulated similarly to traditional broadcasters amid the Logan Paul scandal

Speaking to BBC the sites’ chief business officer says the platform is ‘different’ and doesn’t have the same ‘editorial hand’ broadcasters have.

YouTube’s Robert Kyncl told the publication: ‘We’re not content creators; we’re a platform that distributes the content.’

His comments come after many called for YouTube to be regulated after a video posted by Logan Paul, one if it’s biggest stars, showed disturbing footages of a body hanging in  Japan’s Aokigahara forest.
