youtube movie adsYouTube punishes YouTube star Logan Paul againYouTube has punished Logan Paul, one of the video sites biggest stars, again.

Its worth noting that another one of Pauls actions that bothered YouTube executives didnt happen on YouTube. Instead, theyre upset that he joked about the Tide Pod challenge to hisTwitterfollowers, via a nowdeleted tweet.

If you want to watch Paul tasering a rat, you can see it near the fiveminute mark of this clip, published February .

Up until this year Paul was one of YouTubes vorite stars, with more than million subscribers. But YouTube has also spent the last year fending off a series of controversies about inappropriate content on the site, and is trying to convince marketers that the site is a safe place for them to run their ads.

CNBCs parent NBCUniversal is an investor in Recodes parent Vox, and the companies have a content sharing arrangement. NBCUniversal is also aminority investor in Buzzfeed.

This time the worlds largest video site has temporarily turned off all of the ads in Pauls videos, for offenses that include tasering a rat in a YouTube video and promising, presumably in jest, to eat laundry detergent.

This time it has turned off all of his YouTube ads, for promoting the Tide Pod challenge and tasering a rat.

Earlier this year YouTube had previously reprimanded Paul for showing the body of a suicide victim, by taking him off its most lucrative advertising tier and scrapping a YouTubesponsored movie that was supposed to star Paul.
