It seems that YouTuber Logan Paul has got some serious issues over what’s right and what’s wrong, more so on moral grounds. After all, bouncing back to reality from a Suicide Forest scandal isn’t quite the super easy thing to do.
Although helping Logan Paul in being a bit stress-free, YouTube, in response to Logan Paul’s “recent pattern of behavior,” has now temporarily suspended ads from the Suicide Forest vlogger’s channel. However, without a clear reason provided for the same.
In response to Logan Paul’s recent pattern of behavior, we’ve temporarily suspended ads on his channels.

Though, we don’t need to guess long as the suspension came shortly after PETA took issue with Paul’s videographed act of a deceased rodent tasering. Lisa Lange, who is PETA’s Senior VP, called the footage “repulsive” and stated that its existence showed how Paul has not learned from his Suicide Forest misstep. “This sort of content has no place on YouTube or anywhere else, as it could desensitize young people to cruelty to animals, so PETA is calling on the platform to remove it,” Lange said on Thursday.
Repeatedly, Logan Paul has shown a serious lack of respect for all animals, both human and nonhuman. Destroying and mocking the bodies of dead animals for shocking video content is never OK. https://t.co/QSXpJuJwIx

Also in another statement, as given to the Guardian on Friday, a YouTube rep explained how Paul’s behavior has become “potentially damaging” to the platform’s entire community of creators. “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,” the spokesperson said.
This whole new scandal comes after Logan Paul’s apology tour stop at Good Morning America last week. During the interview, Paul talked about how “tough” it had been recently because “ironically, I’m being told to commit suicide myself.” Paul also described himself as a “good guy who made a bad decision” as well as promised to think as many as “three times” before posting videos in the future.
Maybe, he should think up much better and good content for his videos, instead!
