Los Angeles – Below, please find a statement from PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange in response to a video posted this morning on YouTube showing Logan Paul laughing while repeatedly tasing dead rats before throwing them in the trash:

How many chances does Logan Paul get? PETA finds it repulsive that this “internet personality” with millions of impressionable young followers has not learned the lesson that there is sadness, not humor, in the death of others. This sort of content has no place on YouTube or anywhere else, as it could desensitize young people to cruelty to animals, so PETA is calling on the platform to remove it.

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to abuse in any way.” For more information, please visit PETA.org.
