In a statement to Sky News, it said: "After careful consideration, we have chose to temporarily suspend ads on Logan Paul's YouTube channels".

In addition, he fired a Taser on a dead rat in his most recent video, as YouTube noted in announcing its decision to pull ads from Logan's channels.

He was also the target of animal rights critics who took offense with Paul's video depicting him taking a koi fish out of a pound and then placing the animal on the ground and tasing dead rats.

John Kasich is a Westerville native. "Please remember these officers - and all officers - in your prayers". Mobitzer calls the 39-year-old Morelli and 54-year-old Joering "true American heroes".

YouTube has gone ahead and also suspended Paul's ad revenue stream which is estimated to bring in over a million dollars for the YouTuber each month.

Rather than respectfully leaving the individual alone, the YouTuber, who has over 15 million followers, filmed the body and made a vlog out of the experience.

Paul's manager and publicist didn't respond to requests for comment on Friday. In some of his latest videos, Paul has tasered a rat, suggested that swallowing Tide Pods is a good idea, and attempted to monetize videos which clearly broke YouTube's advertising friendly guidelines.

Winter weather advisory issued for Saturday night, Sunday morning
He said the winter weather will be the result of a typical winter storm system moving into the area. Into Sunday afternoon the wind direction will become southerly, and it will be brisk (10-15mph).

Before returning to daily vlogs, Paul posted a video, a serious one, called "Suicide: Be Here Tomorrow". Many critics said YouTube should have banned Paul outright. Following huge backlash, Paul publicly apologized and pledged to donate $1 million to suicide prevention organizations. The company later removed Paul from its lucrative Google Preferred platform, which gives advertisers easy access to the most popular YouTubers, and suspended his content deals with paid streaming service YouTube Red. In a blog post this month, YouTube Chief Executive Officer Susan Wojcicki said the site is developing policies that would lead to consequences if a creator does something "egregious that causes significant harm to our community as a whole".

It's clear that Paul is far from a good role model, and many viewers think so, so it's unclear why YouTube chose to keep him on after demonetizing his videos.

YouTube has stopped all adverts on Logan Paul's vlogging channels. "You either love me, or you hate me", he said.
