Logan has made a number of controversial videos, even after being disgraced forposting footage showing a dead body in Japans suicide forest.All the recent videos likely break YouTubes advertiserfriendly guidelines, which stipulate against harmful acts.

After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Pauls 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 unsuile for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.
The resulting outcry resulted inYouTube suspending a planned movie deal, and in his removal from YouTubes Preferred Ads programme, which prioritises top creators for advertising.
