YouTube has once again suspended advertising on Logan Paul's channel following another controversial video, in which he repeatedly shoots a dead rodent with a taser.

The streaming-video company has suspended ads on the popular YouTube channel Logan Paul Vlogs.

DISGRACED YouTube star Logan Paul has caused fresh anger after tasering a RAT in a video and encouraging viewers to carry out the risky Tide Pod challenge - leading YouTube to suspend adverts on his page.

YouTube star Logan Paul apologised for his "suicide forest" video, but after posting new disturbing content he's had his ads blocked by YouTube.

"This is not a decision we made lightly", a YouTube rep told The Washington Post.

YouTube said this week that Paul's behavior could be "damaging to the broader creator community".

"In the weird video, he brandishes the taser and screams: "'No rat comes into my house without getting tased!"

Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment for this story.

At least 18 killed, 62 injured after bus overturns in Hong Kong
A double-decker bus has crashed in Hong Kong killing 18 people and injuring almost 50, officials say, APA reports quoting BBC. One passenger was sent to Prince of Wales Hospital in Sha Tin in a "half-conscious" state, according to the force.

The company, which is owned by Google, notes that in the past few weeks, Paul - who has some 15 million YouTube channel subscriber - "encouraged" followers to perform the potentially deadly Tide Pod Challenge, and also tasered a dead rat.

The decision, The Verge reports, impacts the YouTube creator only temporarily.

'How many chances does Logan Paul get?' reads a PETA statement. While the video drew millions of views, it also drew fervent rebukes from people on social media who said it made light of a tragic issue.

YouTube says that it will take away a channel of its ability to serve ads and access monetization services like Google Preferred and YouTube Partner Program.

Paul also posted a video that appears to show how incomplete the YouTuber's redemption narrative really is.

If Paul continues to violate YouTube's policies, ads could be permanently disabled from his channel, per YouTube's guidelines.

On his return to YouTube, Paul said: "I know for a fact everything I do from this point on will get criticism, it will get backlash, because I'm a very polarising dude".

After the incident, Paul stopped producing his daily video blog for a while, but returned to the platform in January, saying he'd learned from his mistakes. Crucify me, vilify me, and I can promise you one thing, guys.
