YouTube Suspends Ads From Logan Paul Videos After Another Scandal

Entertainment | 1 hour

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.

Rand Paul slams Republican 'hypocrisy' over government shutdown-ending bill
The bill passed in the House thanks to the support of 73 Democrats and despite opposition from 67 Republican deficit-hawks. Rand Paul delayed a vote on the Senate's massive spending deal, pushing the government to shutdown on Friday morning.

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.

- Premium Monetization Programs, Promotion and Content Development Partnerships: YouTube may remove a channel from Google Preferred and also suspend, cancel or remove a creator's YouTube Original.

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.
