Two days later, the animal rights organization PETA2 tweeted[2] the video with the caption "When you think shooting dead rats with a taser will help your channel 🙃😡@LoganPaul -- TRUE mavericks don't find humor in suffering & death. It's time to stop." The post (shown below, left) received more than 1,100 retweets and 2,500 likes in two days.

Additionally, the organization tweeted[3] at YouTube. They said, "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." The tweet (shown below, center) received more than 100 retweets and 490 likes in two days.

Responding to comments regarding the welfare of rats, PETA2 responded,[4] "All animals have the ability to suffer and feel pain in the same way that human beings do. 💔 Destroying and mocking the bodies of dead animals for shocking video content is never OK. Just imagine a person shooting a Taser at a deceased dog or cat. All animals deserve respect." The tweet (shown below, right) received more than 4,300 retweets and 15,000 likes in 24 hours.

On February 8th, Twitter[5] user @toontownstaff tweeted about the contradiction between Paul's self-proclaimed respect for the dead following the backlash to his suicide forest video and this new video. The tweet (shown below) received more than 1,000 retweets and 3,600 likes in 24 hours.

That day, Twitter[6] published a Moments page about the backlash to the video.


Logan Paul: I have learned and matured, I truly do care about and respect the dead Logan Paul: The video shows Paul lifting the corpse of a rat using the taser's conductive wire after shooting it before placing it in a cardboard box. "No rat comes into my house without getting tased Paul says. In the next scene, Paul fires the taser at the rats again, seconds after they have already been thrown into the bin by a more sensible friend. Logan's latest vlog also shows the Pauls' dad Greg saying that he's totally on board' for fighting KSl in an MMA-style fight after the British boxer called the family out after a fight in London. That's going to end well, isn't it? Paul's latest video didn't go down well with some people on social media who are clearly tired of Paul's antics.

Later that day, memes based on the controversy began appearing on the /r/dankememes. On February 8th, Redditor[7] Miximum Dennis posted a two-panel photoshop meme featuring Paul tasing Remy from the Pixar film Ratatoulie. The post (shown below, left received more than 100 points (92% upvoted) and 25 comments in three days.

Two days later, on February 10th, Instagram [8] user @memepoleon posted a Daily Struggle variation with Logan Paul choosing between "Lay low and make risk free content after controversy" and "Taser dead animals and put it on YouTube." The post (shown below, center) received more than 22,000 likes in two days.

The following day, Redditor[9] AFriendlyUserName posted a Bae Come Over image macro featuring a close up of Logan Paul's face while he is running and the caption "Her: Babe come over / Him: Im busy / Her: My pet rat just died / Him:" The post (shown below, right) received more than 25,700 points (89% upvoted) and 390 comments in one day.
