YouTube suspends Logan Paul’s ad revenue

YouTube has temporarily suspended all adverts on Logan Paul’s channel citing his “recent pattern of behavior,”.

Google announced this morning that it had “temporarily suspended” ads on Paul’s channels — stopping an income stream estimated to be worth more than a million dollars a month.

In December, he was criticised for uploading a video of a dead body recorded in Japan’s so-called suicide forest. He later apologized.

Since his return to YouTube, he has made a video in which he fired a taser at a dead rat and joked on Twitter about eating detergent capsules.

YouTube’s advertiser policy guidelines states “serious or repeated violations” may lead to ads being disabled for a channel or suspension from the YouTube Partner Program.

“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.”– youtube spokesperson said.

On 1 February, YouTube chief executive Susan Wojcicki said: “egregious” behaviour by popular video bloggers had the potential to cause “significant harm” to the reputation of the platform.

The company has made it a “priority” to develop policies to deal with video-makers who damage the reputation of the website.
