In case you missed it, Logan Paul‘s been having a fairly eventful last few months. After posting a video which showed a dead body to his millions of impressionable young viewers, YouTube effectively kicked his arse by temporarily suspending ads on his channel.
They also booted him out of Google Preferred, an advertising program that allows companies to sell ads on some of the platform’s hottest content creators, as well as pulling the plug on any and all YouTube Originals that were in the pipeline.
Now, Buzzfeed is reporting that YouTube has allowed ads to return to Logan’s page, just a mere 18 days after the suspension was introduced.
As you’d expect, the Logan hate was strong and people were pretty disappointed that it appeared he’d gotten off scot-free.
No, don’t give him ads, don’t let him have a channel. The guy is not funny and is toxic as hell.

Why, what good does this person serve?

Although adverts are back, Logan still won’t be in Google Preferred, he still has to serve a 90 day probation period and to be honest, his reputation has been permanently wrecked from the whole ordeal.
Back at the beginning of February, YouTube’s CEO Susan Wojcick spoke on why the social media star still had a place on the platform.
“He hasn’t done anything that would cause those three strikes. We can’t just be pulling people off our platform … They need to violate a policy. We need to have consistent [rules]. This is like a code of law.”
