You might also have heard of his most recent scandal, in which he posted a video of a suicide victim's corpse in Japan's Aokigahara forest. After a public uproar, he spoke to Michael Strahan on Good Morning America, saying, "I am a good guy who made a bad decision" -- a claim that is 100 percent true if you remove the word "good" from it.
For you see, good guy Logan Paul has a storied past of doing things that are objectively dumb and also terrible. Like the time he pretend to be shot in the back of the head in front a crowd of screaming 10-12-year-old children. As soon as he returned to YouTube after the suicide forest video controversy, he immediately showed his respect for the sanctity of life by pulling a fish out of a pond and pretending to give it CPR and tasing some dead rats.
YouTube cited Paul's "recent pattern of behavior" (corporate speak for "We're secretly worried this person might be a budding serial killer") when they decided to suspend ad revenue on his account, which has 16 million subscribers, many or most of whom are children. The suspension lasted for two whole weeks. It's been reported that he actually gained around 80,000 subscribers after his recent controversies. And why not? He made international headlines. You can't buy that kind of publicity!
And the next time he thinks his channel needs a boost, well, now he knows exactly how to do it.
