We've Done It: Logan Paul Officially Announces His Retirement From The Internet

Source -Logan Paul just called it quits — well, not entirely — but the popular, and at times controversial, daily vlogger announced he won’t be vlogging on a daily basis anymore.

Paul told his 17 million subscribers know on Sunday he’s “thankful” and “blessed” to have created so much content, but “your boy wants to exercise his creativity in other ways.”

The 23-year-old is known for creating wacky videos daily for the last two years. But Paul’s channel was under heavy scrutiny earlier this year, after he posted several inflammatory videos, including one where he mocked a corpse hanging from a tree in Japan’s Aokigahara Forest.

Paul eventually followed up with a video on suicide prevention after he was publicly shamed, but soon returned to posting questionable content. After encouraging his followers to eat Tide Pods, YouTube banned ads on his channel for two weeks, calling the video “not only unsuitable for advertisers, but also potentially damaging to the broader creator community.”

Just because he won’t be posting videos everyday doesn’t mean Paul is going away anytime soon. Paul said he wants to spend more time on other projects, like sketch comedy, and will still upload occasionally to his main channel.

We’ve done it, friends. It took months of public shaming by the news media and two very well-written blogs by yours truly, but we’ve gotten Logan Paul to quit the internet. Here’s the video that he posted to his 17 MILLION followers on YouTube.

I had to scrub through because sixteen minutes of Logan Paul would make me want to run into traffic, but the long and short of it is that he’s branching out. Or as he puts it, “Diversifying, bro.”

“YouTube is not my career,”said Paul. “This is a hobby. I hopped on this platform like two years ago. I have diversified, bro. I’ve got my tentacles spread out in a lot of industries.”

Unfortunately for Logan, YouTube is his career and his career is over. Who knew posting videos of dead teens and laundry detergent lunches would get old? I would be shocked if he were able to get work anywhere other than the Internet but he claims that’s the plan so more power to him. As long as I don’t have to see his face every time he does something stupid I’m all for it. He should probably quit Twitter, Instagram, and everything else while he’s at it. Completely unplug, move off the grid. Go somewhere safe like Pakistan or Chechnya and get away for a while.

Credit where credit is due, at least he announced his retirement. As Neil Young said, “it’s  better to burn out on the Internet than to fade away.” So in honor of Logan, let’s take a look back at some of his “best” work. Enjoy.
