YouTube drops ads from vlogger's channels

The ad suspension comes after Paul posted a video featuring him using a Taser on dead rats, which the group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called "repulsive" in a statement on Thursday. Paul has openly broken many of YouTube's policies on a regular basis, the YouTube vlogger stated that he had learned his lesson following the suicide forest debacle but since that video has uploaded even more questionable content.

YouTube has decided after witnessing the "pattern of behavior" of youtuber Logan Paul to drop advertising on his channels.

This time it has chose to temporarily suspend all advertising on his channels. That jest has landed the embattled YouTube star in hot water-again-with the platform that made him famous. And, at the time, YouTube simply removed Paul's channel from its Google Preferred program, which highlights the top channels on YouTube that are safe for advertisers, and said it was looking into ways of preventing videos like that from surfacing on the site. It wasn't just the rat, however, as the video shows Paul finding out one of his koi fish is ailing. Among them, encouraging his young followers to participate in the Tide Pod challenge in a now-deleted tweet: "swallowing 1 tide pod per retweet".

The company also said Paul will not be featured on season 4 of the original YouTube series, "Foursome" and that "his new Originals are on hold".

He had also deliberately tried to monetise the video that violated YouTube's advertiser-friendly guidelines, they said.

Paul eventually issued an apology on Twitter and later issued a video apology for the incident.

Amazon plans to spend up to $5 billion USA on its second headquarters, which it says will create 50,000 new high-paying jobs. He noted the two nations' economies are so interlinked that Canada wants a good deal with the U.S.

Suspending all ad revenue is the most severe punishment yet for Paul's channel.

Paul's channel, Logan Paul Vlogs, has more than 16 million subscribers.

It's clear that Paul is far from a good role model, and many viewers think so, so it's unclear why YouTube made a decision to keep him on after demonetizing his videos.

As with Paul, YouTube makes a point of the fact that none of this will apply to the majority of people who post content on its platform, and these sorts of sanctions will be applied as a last resort and will often not permanent but will last until the creator removes or alters content. "You either love me, or you hate me", he says toward the end of the video.

Paul hasn't commented on YouTube's decision to suspend all ads from his channel.
