Controversial vlogger Logan Paul has had advertising suspended on his YouTube channel after posting videos in poor taste.

YouTube has temporarily suspended all ads from video star Logan Paul's channels after what it calls a pattern of behaviour unsuitable for advertisers.

In an emailed statement on Friday, YouTube said that the videos on Paul's channels are also "broadly damaging to the broader creator community".

Last month, Paul posted video of himself in a forest near Mount Fuji in Japan near what appeared to be a dead body.

YouTube suspended the 22-year-old at the time for violating its policies.

Paul returned, and has since posted a video of himself using a Taser on dead rats.

That video is still up, with an age restriction.

An email sent to Paul's merchandise company for comment was not immediately answered on Friday.

YouTube is owned by Google parent company Alphabet.
