Radio 1 pulls interview with YouTuber Logan Paul

A recorded interview with Logan Paul was pulled last night after Radio 1 said they don’t feel it is right to broadcast it in full.

Listeners contacted the station after a teaser clip was played, asking them to cancel the interview. Logan Paul caused controversy earlier this year by filming the body of an apparent suicide victim hanging from a tree by his neck in Japan for his blog, but has since apologised.

Radio 1 said: “We were going to hear from Logan Paul & KSI on their boxing match tonight. After listening back to the interview we don’t feel it’s right. We understand some of your strong views on Logan – but ultimately if we don’t think the interview is good enough – we don’t air it.”

Charlie Sloth spoke about the issue on-air yesterday during his show. He said: “We’ve listened back to the interview we did with Logan and even though it was only part of a wider piece, we don’t feel it’s right, so we’ve decided we are not going to run it.”

    Why would these morons even consider airing an interview with this pathetic excuse for a human being?

      You fit in well with the virtue signallers at the BBC. It’s pathetic they cancelled, true signs of PC sensorship. Freespeech doesn’t exist anymore.
