The internet has transformed ordinary people into viral superstars. However, celebrity vlogger Logan Paul is learning the price of the massive fame
YouTube Speaks Out
The video sharing website decided to remove all ads on Paul's official YouTube channel temporarily.
"After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul's YouTube channels," a YouTube spokesperson told Enstars. "This is not a decision we made lightly, however, we believe he has exhibited a pattern of behavior in his videos that makes his channels not only unsuitable for advertisers but also potentially damaging to the boarder creator community,"
According to YouTube, they believe that Paul's brand has become toxic to potential partners and his actions have made the YouTube creator's community vulnerable.
YouTube pointed out that creators are free to create material but also advises vloggers that if they wanted to have the opportunity to work with advertisers, they should use their common sense, do not abuse the site, and be respectful of other creators.
Logan Paul's Latest Stunt
The YouTube creator came under fire once again for several disturbing behaviors. He encouraged his 16 million YouTube subscribers to participate in the deadly Tide Pod Challenge, where it has landed a major number of its participants in hospitals.
Also, Paul uploaded another controversial video where he electrocuted a dead rodent. The video-sharing website stated that Paul tried to monetize off of the video.
Paul's actions violated the organization's rules and likely the video-sharing website to temporarily hit pause on advertisements that would come to Paul's channel.
Logan's Citizen Arrest
YouTube's decision to temporarily remove advertisements from Paul's channel comes a few days after Paul received an unwelcome visitor.
The YouTube content creator made a citizen's arrest when an intruder entered his San Fernando Valley area of Encino, California. The intruder knew that he entered Paul's house and charged his phone as he was waiting to meet him. Paul's fellow housemates did not even check for the intruder as they thought that the intruder was Paul himself.
The 'Good Morning America' Interview
As Paul continues to deal with the fallout from the Tide Pod Challenge and electrocuted rat controversies, he might have to face Good Morning America's Michael Strahan once again.
Paul gave his first television interview to the former Live with Kelly and Michael co-host after he uploaded a viral video of him and his friends discovering a dead body in Japan's Aokigahara area.
"I am much more aware of the impact that my actions have on myself and others," said Paul.
He also spoke about his new mission to spread suicide awareness and prevention. Paul pledged that he would donate $1,000,000 to various suicide awareness programs.
