YouTube star, Logan Paul is under fire yet again for his latest post where he’s seen tasering dead rats someone threw on the balcony of his L.A. mansion. His most recent contribution has caused controversy.
Paul offended many last month when he poked fun at the hanging body of a suicide victim in Aokigahara, Japan. Many thought he responded with insensitivity and crassness.
In this latest post, Paul is seen making fun of animals; he tasers the two rats then discards them then fires the taser again. This video is his latest foray into vlogging after last month’s scandal. Apparently, the guy hasn’t learned.
“I’d love to say Logan Paul has changed and learned to respect dead things since coming back on YouTube,” Twitter user Elliot Hackney said. “But now he’s just tasering them instead.”

After Paul puts the rat in the cardboard box, he says: “No rat comes into my house without getting tased!”
Then, in the following scene, Paul fires the taser again at the rats who’ve been tastefully tossed into the garbage by a more sensible friend.
British boxer, KSI, called out the Paul family, challenging them to a fight. Paul’s father Greg said he’d love to fight him in an MMA-style battle. This too was included in Paul’s video debacle.
As usual, social media responded to Paul’s video. Some hated it, and they weren’t afraid to voice their displeasure with his antics.
“I care more about dead rats than I do about logan paul,” one guy said.
“Yo Yo @KSIOlajidebt do the needful bro,” someone else said, implying that KSI should lay the smackdown.
YouTuber, PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg, slammed Paul for his public appearances since the incident in Japan and the criticism that followed. He accused Paul of being dishonest about the supposed lessons he’s learned since last month. According to PewDiePie, Paul is doing everything for his personal gain.
“Seeing all this track record of dishonesty and doing literally anything to redeem your brand, I’m going to call that out. It seems just too perfect for me,” Kjellberg said.
“Logan Paul should just keep making videos and be honest. That would be my advice, and as long as he’s not, I’m going to call him out on it.”
Of course, Paul does have fans who don’t have a problem with his videos: “You haters will always find something to complain about lol,” said one person under the name MavericksUnite – named after Logan’s fans, Mavericks – in response to Hackney’s tweet.
Whether you like Paul or not, he’s back.
