Logan Paul, apparently the internet's #1 moron, is in hot water again - and this time he won't be able to make money off it. Youtube has decided to temporarily suspend the vloggers advertising in response to his recent (and heinous actions.) One would think that after the suicide forest debacle and subsequent tearful apology, Paul had learned his lesson. But that's just not the case.
On February 5th, Logan Paul came under fire for animal cruelty following the upload of this video - in which Paul shoots dead rats with a taser. Lovely. PETA was not happy about this, and Paul received a lot of criticism from people pointing out that his newfound "respect for the dead" does not, apparently, extend to animals.
Just days before, Logan Paul made a very foolish Tide pods reference on Twitter - saying he would swallow one Tide pod per retweet. At this point, we're all aware of the insane crackdown regarding the Tide pod challenge. It was this tweet, and the animal cruelty, that ultimately led Youtube to suspend the advertising - tweeting "In response to Logan Paul's recent pattern of behavior, we've temporarily suspended ads on his channels."
All animals have the ability to suffer and feel pain in the same way that human beings do. 💔 Destroying and mocking the bodies of dead animals for shocking video content is never OK. Just imagine a person shooting a Taser at a deceased dog or cat. All animals deserve respect.— PETA Shares (@PETAShares) February 8, 2018
Repeatedly, Logan Paul has shown a serious lack of respect for all animals, both human and nonhuman. Destroying and mocking the bodies of dead animals for shocking video content is never OK. https://t.co/QSXpJuJwIx— PETA Shares (@PETAShares) February 8, 2018

Logan Paul is just going to continue to create garbage content and continue making money being an idiot cause he knows that's all his loyal followers want to see. If they didn't unsubscribe after the suicide forest video they never will. It's sad but true 🙄. https://t.co/UvG0Mt1j5m— Dayna B (@daynabreezy) February 8, 2018
