Logan Paul Uses Taser On Dead Rat, YouTube Suspends Ads
Question: when will Logan Paul learn? When will he learn that exploiting dead bodies — human or not — is not a good idea?
It’s been about one month since Logan uploaded his infamous video titled, “We found a dead body in the Japanese Suicide Forest,” and he’s clearly wasted no time returning to his not so smart — or, as I would say, DUMB — antics. In a recent video titled, “THE PAULS RESPOND TO THE CSI FIGHT! **called out**, Logan is shown using a taser on two dead rats. You can watch the video below.
The video, of course, received a lot of backlash from those on social media, and — more importantly — PETA. In response to Logan, PETA posted this video to Twitter. You can watch it below.
PETA followed that video by saying —
How many chances does @LoganPaul get? PETA finds it repulsive that this internet personalty with millions of impressionable young followers has not learned the lesson that there is sadness, not humor, in the death of others. This sort of content has no place on @YouTube or anywhere else, as it could desensitize young people to cruelty to animals, so PETA is calling on the platform to remove it.
Well, the video is still on YouTube, but the platform did respond to Logan’s “recent pattern of behavior,” by “temporarily suspend[ing] ads on his channels.”
Prior to this controversy, it seemed as though Logan was trying to make a genuine attempt to recover from his Suicide Forest video — he took time away from YouTube and returned with a video he hoped would raise suicide awareness. Was he criticized for that video? Yes, but I will give him this — he tried. In fact, it could have been the start of something good for Logan, but instead — we’re here. Questioning whether or not he’ll ever NOT do something controversial on YouTube.
What do you think? Will Logan ever learn, or is he too far gone? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
