YouTube censors some of its top contributors by taking away monetization

Posted on Friday, September 02 2016 @ 12:33:54 CEST by


YouTube dropped a bombshell on some of its most popular contributors by changing its rules so that various content is no longer appropriate for advertising. There's a lot of controversy about this as the new rules are ambiguous and it seems like a big crackdown on anything that can be considered not politically correct.

As financial doom and gloom blog ZeroHedge reports, YouTube now has the right to demonetize any video that is deemed to be not advertiser-friendly. This includes videos with sexually suggestive content, even if its just sexual humor, but also anything that contains violence or "inappropriate language".

Even more controversial is that the rules also cover videos about "controversial or sensitive subjects an events", even if graphic imagery is not shown.
YouTube’s new policy will completely disincentivize YouTubers from discussing politically incorrect topics or expressing controversial opinions because they know they will be punished for doing so. Many YouTubers make a living off their channel and will therefore be walking on eggshells to avoid the company’s stringent new rules.


Heatstreet reports YouTube already used the new rules to effectively shut down Philip DeFranco, a popular anti-SJW YouTube star with over 4 million subscribers. I presume this also means the end of all this big-bosomed YouTube stars with low-cut dresses.
