YouTube has temporarily suspended advertising on Logan Paul’s channel, as per The Verge.
In a statement, the streaming platform wrote: “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 came under fire early this year after posting a video in Japan’s “suicide forest” that featured an apparent suicide victim, but that’s not the only time the star has attracted negative attention. The latest development comes just 24 hours after Paul received harsh criticism from PETA for a video that shows the YouTuber tasering dead rats.
In response to the controversy, YouTube canceled Paul’s upcoming projects on hold and removed him from a lucrative ad platform. However, according to SocialBlde, this latest move will be a huge financial blow, as Paul’s channel is estimated to bring in up to $1.2 million a month in ad revenue.
