Logan Paul in trouble again after YouTube return

If you don’t know, Logan Paul is some 22 year old tool that seems to have aspirations of being one of MTV’s Jackass members and does ridiculous pranks on his Youtube channel.

The flash point came Dec. 31 when the 22-year-old vlogger posted a video during his trip to Japan on Dec. 31 that included footage of a person who had died from a suicide. Paul deliberately tried to monetize the video on YouTube before he deleted it and apologized.

Since then, Paul joked about taking the “Tide Pod challenge” — a meme that has spread across the internet in which people attempt to eat the detergent capsules. 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.

“After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul’s YouTube channels,” YouTube said in a statement Friday. “This is not a decision we made lightly; however, we believe he has exhibited a pattern of behavior in his videos that makes his channel not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.”

Reps for Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

YouTube had previously pulled Paul’s channels from the Google Preferred premium-advertising program following the suicide video.

In the wake of the controversy, Paul also lost a series deal with French digital studio Blackpills and was cut from YouTube Red’s original series “Foursome.” He is represented by CAA and affiliated with Studio71.
