YouTube has upgraded its hate talk guidelines to ban more types of clips. They clearly include or refute Nazi philosophy or reject certain events that include the shooting of the Sandy Hook or the Holocaust. YouTube will therefore remove a number of videos and channels that fall below the rules renovated.
“Now, we’re taking one further step towards our hate speech guidelines specifically banning videos, which blame a group for being better able, based on qualities such as gender, age, casta, race, sexual orientation, religion or veteran status in order to justify segregation, discrimination or exclusion,” it claimed in a blog post. It also prohibits clips that place hate or act violence on nationality, handicap or immigration-based groups or persons and on the “family and victims of primary violence.”
There were no instances in YouTube that could prohibit videos or channels. YouTube is yet another controversy concerning the occurrence of hate talk in its service as a policy upgrade. It refused to make clips posted by a commentator on the right who was responsible for attacking a journalist who had racial and homophobic comments.
In a related note, after substantial public disgrace, This week, YouTube said that Steven Crowder (controversial conservative commentator) would no longer be allowed to take advantage of the videos on its channel. The move follows when the company refused to take part in a sequence of YouTuber videos in which Carlos Maza was used in a bigoted and homophobic language (Vox writer).
«We have prohibited the monetization of this channel,’ said the company in an interview to the media. “We have come to this decision as a pattern of egregious measures has hurt and is opposed to the broader community.”
