YouTube suspends ads on Logan Paul videos

Logan Paul

YouTube has said it's chosen to do this after "careful consideration" and because of Logan's recent "pattern of behaviour".

It's been a little over a month since infamous YouTube celebrity Logan Paul walked into Japan's Aokigahara Forest and filmed the body of a recently deceased person who was the victim of suicide.

The video was fiercely derided online and by fellow YouTube personalities, and eventually led YouTube to kick Paul's channel out of its premium video network, Google Preferred, which is created to only offer higher-quality videos for brands to run ads.

Logan Paul can't stay out of headlines, and not for the right reasons. Paul also drew the wrath of PETA earlier this week over videos where he tasered a dead rat and poked a fish struggling to breathe after he took it out of water.

In the same video, posted on February 5, Paul removes a fish from his pond and attempts to resuscitate it using CPR.


Logan Paul is already a controversial character on YouTube. A recent video showed Paul shooting a Taser stun gun at dead rats.

YouTube just slapped Logan Paul again after announcing it has temporarily blocked him from running ads on his content. YouTube says that they suspended the advertising because Logan Paul's behavior could be "damaging to the broader creator community".

Casey Neistat has over eight million subscribers on YouTube and burst into the limelight when he started uploading daily vlogs in 2015. Paul admits that "I know for a fact everything I do from this point on will get criticism, it will get backlash, because I'm a very polarizing dude". So internet, please, use me, bro.

The video exists, in essence, as evidence that Paul has learned and grown from the controversy. Crucify me, vilify me, and I can promise you one thing, guys.

I'm not going to comment on the morality of these activities, because I don't really care about them. He has a loyal fan base in the millions who are young and continually support Paul, even as he is heralded as YouTube's king asshat. What interests me about this story is the statement YouTube gave Variety on the incident.
