YouTube Suspends Ads From Logan Paul Videos After Another Scandal

YouTube star Logan Paul is under scrutiny yet again for a video posted to his channel this week showing him using a stun gun on dead rats

The Google-owned platform has announced that it is temporarily suspending adverts on Logan Paul's various channels, citing Logan Paul's "recent pattern of behavior" as the reason behind this decision.

YouTube stated in a tweet that the vlogger's ad revenue had been suspended in response to his "recent pattern" of behavior, likely a reference to Paul's infamous "Japanese Suicide Forest" video in which he filmed the hanging body of a suicide victim.

In a statement released overnight, YouTube said they were prompted to punish Paul after he posted videos showing dead rats being tasered and a live fish removed from water - this despite his apparent remorse for sharing footage of a dead body in Japan's "suicide forest".

TechCrunch reports that popular YouTube Star Logan Paul has had advertising revenue on his channel suspended.

"This is not a decision we made lightly", a YouTube spokesman said in a statement to The Washington Post.

Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this story.

Hopefully, Logan Paul is hungry, because after offering to eat a Tide Pod, he may want to eat his words.

Bouts of snow followed by freezing rain Sunday
Freezing rain warnings are issued when rain failing in sub-zero temperature creates ice buildup and icy surfaces. Conditions are expected to improve by Sunday evening and into the start of the work week on Monday.

It's only a matter of time before Logan Paul is back to make a tearful apology now that his income stream has been cut off.

It's also says it's concerned his actions could "damage" other bloggers. Less than one week later, however, he has found himself with a temporary suspension by YouTube from displaying ads on his channel after filming himself using a Taser on a#dead rat.

However, it's now unknown how much this move will affect the YouTuber. And, he was unstoppable: Less than two minutes into the video, still dressed as a movie messiah or castaway, Paul bragged about gaining 1 million subscribers during the break.

Paul apologized for the "mistake", and also stepped away from the platform for some time to reportedly do some soul searching.

Late on Friday, YouTube released more detailed guidelines which included a warning that the company could pull ads or boot creators off the service if they "cause harm" to other producers and consumers.
