YouTube temporarily suspended ads on Logan Paul's videos following the controversial video Paul uploaded (and since deleted) of a suicide victim in Japan’s Aokigahara forest in December 2017.
YouTube’s decision will cut off Paul’s income stream, estimated by some experts to be more than a million dollars a month.
“After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul’s YouTube channels,” YouTube said in a statement. “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.”
