The Logan Paul comeback does not seem to be going well. The YouTube star took about a month off after filming a suicide victim’s corpse and setting off an international furor, but now he’s back. Paul says he’s learned his lesson, but soon after his return, he’s already reverted from “apologetic” to “messing with dead bodies again.”
In his most recent video, for instance, Paul removes a dead fish from a backyard pond and pretends to give it CPR (at the 2:30 mark). He also fires a Taser at a dead rat (at the 4:50 mark).
In response to Logan Paul clearly having learned nothing, and in accordance with new guidelines for its most popular creators, YouTube suspended Paul’s ability to run ads and thus earn money directly from his online viewership. “In response to Logan Paul’s recent pattern of behavior, we’ve temporarily suspended ads on his channels,” the video site tweeted. Previously, Paul was removed from the Google Preferred ad program, which offered access to the most lucrative advertisers.
Rest assured, Logan Paul will be back to earning money off of his loyal fans, collectively known as the Logang. In the meantime, if you’d really like to help a struggling, humble video-smith out, maybe buy some merch?
