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?!?

Logan Paul became a familiar name outside of 3rd grade circles earlier this month when he uploaded a video of himself and friends looking at the body of a man who hung himself in Japan’s Aokigahara forest in (sometimes known as the “suicide forest“). YouTube never removed the video; Logan Paul eventually removed it, and gave two apologies before going on a self-imposed hiatus.
YouTube took their time deciding what to do about Logan Paul, but they’ve finally come to a conclusion. Logan will still be able to upload videos of himself dabbing on them haters, it’s just that now he’ll be paid a little bit less for it.
On Tuesday, The New York Times published an op-ed written by Salma Hayek detailing the alleged horrors of working with Harvey Weinstein on the 2002’s Frida. Salma claimed she was faced with a non-stop barrage of sexual harassment, sexual assault, requests to look sexier as Frida Kahlo, blatant threats of murder and general bullying.
Well, gather ’round, it’s time for another edition of Harvey Weinstein Half-Assed Apology Theater!
If Matt Lauer has a cartoon angel and devil on his shoulders, then the angel might be responsible for Matt’s recent apology for sexually harassing co-workers at NBC News. But it sounds like the devil has been doing a little whispering too. Page Six says Matt is thirsty for a huge chunk of bye-bye money, and he’s sent his lawyers to NBC to get it.
Don’t question his logic. Scott Disick is clearly the most underestimated relationship expert of our time. How else could he lure Kourtney Kardashian back as a repeat customer to his good-for-nothing ass? Thankfully, for those out there who hope to learn from love guru Scott, he’s giving away free lessons. I guess not free – the lesson comes from watching a clip of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, so it it will cost you part of your soul.
Last week, Karrueche Tran was granted a 5-year restraining order against Chris Brown, and in addition to keeping his abusive ass away from her for five years, it was also reported that he had to attend domestic violence prevention classes. During the hearing, Karrueche said that Chris had beat her in the past, so TMZ says the court ordered him to attend a 52-week program.
As it turns out, there was a clerical error and he doesn’t have to go those classes after all. The courts filed a document on Monday with an amendment to Karrueche’s restraining order explaining that the issue was not raised at the hearing, and the court doesn’t require him to participate in a “batterer intervention program.”
Whoever discovered that mistake must have had a real tough decision on their hands. That’s the kind of internal conflict that brings out the shoulder angel and devil and I bet even they couldn’t offer any help. The angel probably said, “Normally I’d tell you to be honest, but let’s face it, that dude should be forced to take a whole year of violence classes.” And the devil said, “This would usually be where I’d disagree with the angel, but I think we’re on the same page. If I had to encourage you to do something wrong, maybe scratch out 52 and change it to 104.”
