YouTube Just Suspended Advertising On Logan Paul's Channel

Controversial YouTube star Logan Paul has been dealt a blow after YouTube has suspended all advertising on his videos.

"After careful consideration, we have chose to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul's YouTube channels", a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News.

Paul faced an worldwide backlash last month after he posted footage of himself with a suicide victim in Japan's Aokigahara "suicide forest".

Taufatofua, who was born in Australia but raised in Tonga , made world headlines when he bared his torso in the warm Rio climate. As he did in Rio, Taufatofua will carry Tonga's flag at the Opening Ceremony as the country's sole athlete at the Games.

That situation got global attention as millions across the world condemned his actions, with Logan Paul releasing multiple apology videos but eventually going silent for nearly a month, where he reportedly worked with suicide groups to understand the impact.

Since then, Paul has joked about taking the "Tide Pod challenge" - a meme that spread across the internet in which people attempt to eat the detergent capsules.

YouTube has once again penalised vlogger Logan Paul for posting inappropriate content, just weeks after he was suspended from the company's paid-content program over a video trivialising suicide.

Reps for Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

YouTube said his actions could "damage" the wider video-making community.

It's possible the suspension is due to a recent video in which Paul finds two dead rats on his balcony and discusses with his friends how to get rid of them. After throwing the rats in a bin outside, Paul fires his stun gun into the bin, saying: "I hate rats".
