YouTube has suspended ads from video star Logan Paul's channels

FILE - In this Dec. 1, 2017 file photo, YouTube personality Logan Paul arrives at Jingle Ball in Inglewood, Calif. Paul describes himself as a "good guy who made a bad decision" when he posted images of what appeared to be a suicide victim online, and says the backlash he's faced includes some calling for his own suicide. In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, Paul says that he realizes the impact of his actions, and believes the criticism he has received is fair.

YouTube has temporarily suspended all ads from video star Logan Paul's channels after what it calls a pattern of behavior unsuitable for advertisers.

In an emailed statement, YouTube said that the videos on Paul's channels are also "broadly damaging to the broader creator community."

“After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul’s YouTube channels. This is not a decision we made lightly, however, 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.”

Last month, Paul posted video of himself in a forest near Mount Fuji in Japan near what appeared to be a body hanging from a tree. YouTube suspended the 22-year-old at the time for violating its policies.

According to The Hill, YouTube pointed to a video Paul posted on Monday that showed him "tasering dead rats and Paul encouraging his fans to do the Tide Pod challenge," an internet meme that involves individuals swallowing laundry detergent.

An email sent to Paul's merchandise company for comment was not immediately answered Friday. YouTube is owned by Google parent company Alphabet.
