We’ve gotten to the point now where the name Logan Paul has become more synonymous with a piece of shit than toilet paper. So it should be no great shock that he’s in trouble again for his insufferable antics.
On Monday, 22-year-old Logan uploaded a video of himself and two friends finding two dead rats on his patio. Logan declared: “No rat comes into my house without getting tased!” before whipping a taser from the waistband of his pants and zapping them. He tases them again as their bodies go into the trash.
Deadline says that after Logan got backlash for the video, YouTube punished him by gently tapping him on the wrist again. They have temporarily suspended advertising on his channel. They deemed the content “unsuitable for brands.” In the same video, Logan Paul also makes a joke about the Tide Pod Challenge. So I’m just going to leave it up to the skeptics out there to decided whether it was the dead rodents or the bad press for a huge corporate sponsor that got him in trouble.
YouTube released the following statement:
“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.”
Logan Paul has 16.6 million subscribers. YouTube doesn’t say how long his advertising suspension will be. He has uploaded three videos since the rat-tasing video, and I’m positive this isn’t the last obnoxious video he’ll post. Rats could seek vengeance against their humiliated brothers by breaking into Logan’s pantry and shitting in all his dry goods, and he’d respond with a video titled: Rats Shat in My Pasta?!?
