YouTube has been “cleaning” up the site for advertisers. If content is deemed as offensive it can be demonetized, locked as private, or even get you banned from the site. A lot of content creators, but especially politically conservative and independent channels have been effected.
I didn’t think I would be affected because I don’t make political content and I am a tiny channel.
I was wrong! A video that I had posted on my main channel about being afraid of Tumblr was deemed too EXTREME for advertisers.
NOTE: This video was private for a like month because I was transitioning the main channel to more serious content. I did upload it to CutesyDoodle.
The video in question:
The joke is that this guy has an unpopular opinion, but is so afraid of the backlash he goes into hiding. That’s it. What I am saying doesn’t matter. I could say, “Kitty face” repeatedly and it would have the same effect.
The unpopular opinion was that we should judge a movie by its own merits, not by who made it. I know this is really fringe stuff, but I digress.
I do find it amusing that Google would go out of there way to bother a video with 35 views. They truly are the people’s champion.
