Paul has been involved in several controversies, most notably relation to a visit to Japan, during which he filmed the corpse of a man who had hanged himself and posted the footage on his YouTube channel. On February 9, 2018, YouTube suspended all advertising on Paul’s channels due to his “pattern of behavior”, referring to his participation in the Tide Pod challenge, removing a fish from his pond to “jokingly give it CPR”, and tasering two dead rats.
His revenue was temporarily halted as a result, and as a result of the suspension, he broadcast live on Twitch for the first time. Two weeks later, on February 26, YouTube restored ads on Paul’s channel; however, his channel was still on a 90-day “probation period” during which time content from his channel was not eligible to be on YouTube’s trending tab. In January 2019, Paul remarked on his Impaulsive podcast, “What is it, male-only March? We’re gonna attempt to go gay for just one month.” He received widespread criticism for implying that being homosexual is a choice, with LGBTQ+ organization GLAAD responding to Paul’s statement on Twitter, writing, “That’s not how it works, Logan Paul.” On December 6, 2020, it was announced that Paul would fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an exhibition bout on February 20, 2021.Paul has English , Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Jewish and German ancestry.

This proximity facilitated various collaborations on their respective videos. In October 2017, Paul and Eckenrode relocated to an estate in Encino, California.
