  • YouTuber Logan Paul is seeing a big slowdown in subscribers and views in the months after he controversially posted a video of a dead body in Japan’s so-called suicide forest.
  • SocialBlade statistics examined by Business Insider show a 47% dropoff in views, and an 88% slowdown in subscribers between December and March.
  • Paul stopped posting videos for the month of January, and YouTube has taken steps to demote Paul on its platform.
  • The figures cast Paul’s decision to move to rival platform Twitch in a new light, given his YouTube revenues are probably meaningfully impacted.
  • Paul has also agreed to fight fellow YouTuber KSI which is likely to give a big boost to his numbers.

There’s a good reason why controversial YouTuber Logan Paul has decided to launch a channel on rival site Twitch — and it isn’t just creative pride.

Statistics from SocialBlade show that Logan Paul is seeing a major decline in his viewers and subscribers on his primary YouTube channel LoganPaulVlogs. This will directly be hitting his earnings, pegged at up to £5.6 million ($ 7.9 million) a month.
