On ofthem being The TV series “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul tweeted: “Dear @LoganPaul, How dareyou! You disgust me.
I can’t believe that so many young people look up to you.So sad. Hopefully this latest video woke them up. You are pure trash.
Plain andsimple. Suicide is not a joke. Go rot in hell. Ap”The young videoblogger also received a strike from the site due to breaking the communityguidelines.
If a youtuber receives three strikes, their channel is removed fromthe platform, could this mean that Logan Paul’s career is coming to an end?
