Internet man child Logan Paul just can’t stop being an idiot.

After taking some time off and posting an apology video for filming a suicide victim’s corpse during his trip to Japan, Logan Paul just can’t stop it with the silly shenanigans.

In one of his latest videos, he is seen trying to give CPR to a dead fish (2:30) and later on, tases a dead rat around the 4:50 mark.

YouTube quickly responded to the video by temporarily suspending advertisements on all his related YouTube channels and associated videos.

The video giant has been speedily updating its community guidelines after receiving much backlash from the whole Logan Paul scenario (on top of other disputable videos posted by other major influencers. YouTube’s initial lack of commentary about the situation put them under a lot of pressure by the wider community.

Even though a few shills like Tanner Fox and Mo Vlogs tried to show support for the vlogger, many other tops names have publicly commented about his lack of morals and how it could destroy the community, while others openly mocked his apology video.

In a new article about creator influence, YouTube outlined that “severely, egregiously, or repeatedly violating” their community guidelines; and/or “seeking to monetize videos that severely or egregiously violate [their] advertiser-friendly content guideline”, can result in partner benefits being taken away either on a temporary or permanent basis.

Some of the penalties include:

  • Premium monetization programs, promotion, and content development partnerships: Creators may be removed from Google Preferred; YouTube Originals may be suspended, cancelled, or removed.
  • Monetization and creator support privileges: Creator channels may lose the ability to serve ads, earn revenue, and potentially be removed from the YouTube Partner Program, including access to support and YouTube Spaces.
  • Video recommendations: Creators may no longer be eligible to be recommended on YouTube, such as appearing on our Home page, Trending tab, or in Watch Next recommendations.

I guess Logan did not get the memo about their new guidelines.
