YouTube suspends ads on all of Logan Paul's videos

YouTube has issued a statement condemning Paul and his actions to the Huffington Post, revealing how "after careful consideration, we have chose to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul's YouTube channels".

Last month, Paul posted video of him in a forest near Mount Fuji in Japan near what seemed to be a suicide victim hanging from a tree.

This adds insult to the financial injury Logan was already facing with ads being suspended after he posted more disturbing videos, including tasering 2 dead rats.

Logan Paul can't stay out of headlines, and not for the right reasons.

Less than a month after YT removed the 22-year-old from Google Preferred, which is a service that "aggregates YouTube's top content...into easy-to-buy packages for brand advertisers", the company made a decision to suspend ALL ads from both his channels completely.

He had also deliberately tried to monetise the video that violated YouTube's advertiser-friendly guidelines, they said.

The YouTube star has had all adverts on his videos suspended over what Google describes as a "pattern of behaviour", repeatedly posting content which push the boundaries of what is acceptable on the site. If Paul's content doesn't evolve, he could be expelled from YouTube's Partner Program altogether, effectively killing his ability to earn money through the platform.

Since his return, however, Paul has joked about taking the unsafe "Tide Pod challenge", in which people eat laundry pods and post a video, and on February 5, Tasered a dead rat.

Paul's YouTube channel has over 16 million subscribers.

Logan Paul returned to his daily vlogging after taking an extended break from the suicide video and taking some time off to get woke.

This time around, the streaming service acknowledged that Paul's actions had rendered his channel "unsuitable for advertisers" and potentially a liability for the site as a whole.

I'm not going to comment on the morality of these activities, because I don't really care about them. Many critics said YouTube should have banned Paul outright. What interests me about this story is the statement YouTube gave Variety on the incident.
