YouTube suspends ads from Logan Paul's channels

YouTube suspends ads from Logan Paul's channels

In addition, he fired a Taser on a dead rat in his most recent video, as YouTube noted in announcing its decision to pull ads from Logan's channels.

DISGRACED YouTube star Logan Paul has caused fresh anger after tasering a RAT in a video and encouraging viewers to carry out the unsafe Tide Pod challenge - leading YouTube to suspend adverts on his page. YouTube says they are not censoring Logan Paul but advertisers also have the right to object to their brands being associated with certain channels.

While the company didn't go into details about the videos it believed exhibited Paul's disturbing "pattern of behavior" to its advertisers and the public, the YouTuber had reportedly published numerous videos recently which easily fall into this category.

Paul has not addressed the backlash from his recent rat video, but did publicize a TMZ article about him making a citizen's arrest of a man who broke into his home on Tuesday.

An email sent to Paul's merchandise company for comment was not immediately answered Friday. And he reportedly tweeted "swallowing 1 tide pod per retweet" on the same day, in reference to the risky Tide Pod challenge, in which people record themselves eating detergent packets and post the videos to social media. In a blog post this month, YouTube Chief Executive Officer Susan Wojcicki said the site is developing policies that would lead to consequences if a creator does something "egregious that causes significant harm to our community as a whole".

Paul is one of the highest-profile stars YouTube has sanctioned so far.

This marks the second time YouTube has taken what amounts to economic sanctions against Paul.

Paul eventually issued an apology on Twitter and later issued a video apology for the incident. Then on February 4th, he posted a video that bragged about how he gained over a million subscribers during his break. The video in question was viewed more than eight million times. Crucify me, vilify me, and I can promise you one thing, guys.

On his return to YouTube, Paul said: "I know for a fact everything I do from this point on will get criticism, it will get backlash, because I'm a very polarising dude". (The tweet appears to have been deleted.) Both instances are examples of why Paul's videos are unfit to run ads, according to YouTube.
