After gay political personality Carlos Maza complained on Twitter about conservative Youtuber Steven Crowder’s commentary about Maza, YouTube has decided to demonetize Crowder’s channel.
Although YouTube’s original response was to do nothing because it "did not violate [their] Community Guidelines," the platform changed its mind on Wednesday after receiving a lashing from leftist media.
"Update on our continued review–we have suspended this channel’s monetization," YouTube wrote. Fox News reported that the company also said “Crowder would have to make fundamental changes to the entire channel if he wanted the decision reversed.”
Additionally, Fox News reported that the company has seemingly gone on a mass purge. Now other unrelated YouTube creators have been “erroneously caught up in the situation,” as their channels have been unexpectedly demonetized and some of their videos deleted.
