After the official apologies for his previous vlog that featured footage of a suicide victim, Logan Paul's new video showed him using a stun gun on dead rats and poking at a fish struggling to breathe, which apparently made him the subject of controversy yet again.

The largest animal rights organization, PETA slammed the YouTuber for his shocking video content on Thursday.

PETA condemned the act and posted a tweet saying, "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. All animals deserve respect."

In the video, Paul is seen firing at the rat remains saying, "No rat comes into my house without getting tased." After throwing the rats in a bin outside, Paul fires his stun gun into the bin, saying: "I hate rats."

"Repeatedly, Logan Paul has shown a serious lack of respect, both human and nonhuman," PETA further added.

PETA has called on YouTube to take action regarding the video, saying, "This sort of content has no place on YouTube or anywhere else, as it could desensitize young people to cruelty to animals," PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange told TMZ.
