YouTube Cuts Off Logan Paul's Ad Revenue After He Uploads Video Of Himself Tasering Dead Rats
The straming giant made the decision to yank advertising across all of Paul's channels, on the basis that his "recent pattern of behaviour” has rendered him “unsuitable” for its brands.
The dead rat tasering of course came after Paul sparked global outrage for posting a video of a suicide victim from Japan‘s Aokigahara forest online, before taking it down, apologising and taking nearly month-long break from YouTube,
But it didn't take him long to royally p*ss off the public after making his return to the interwebs, and now YouTube has taken action.
The company's statement reads:
“After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul’s YouTube channels. 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.”
Paul has yet to respond publicly to the move.
