YouTube Removes Ads from Anti-Vaccine Channels

Advertisers flee YouTube after video comments get even more disgusting

In context: YouTube continues to fight back against inappropriate, dangerous, or otherwise false content that violates its terms of service. August Oetker KG also said they had postponed YouTube spending after their ads were shown to play before the videos.

This comes in the wake of YouTube removing millions of videos and channels previous year for spam, scams, extreme content, or conspiracy theories.

YouTube told us that restricting ads for anti-vaccination videos is not a new policy for the company. "What we're all hoping is that brands and YouTube will together realize that they'll make even more money if they get a solid grip on brand safety".

The latest situation is still playing out, but if history is any guide, YouTube will keep growing and raking in cash for Google.

Additionally, DeFranco stated that YouTube is prioritizing disabling comments over demonetizing videos.

In a statement, a YouTube spokesperson said, "Any content-including comments-that endangers minors is abhorrent, and we have clear policies prohibiting this on YouTube".

Comments on the videos time-stamp moments where the children's bodies are exposed in some way or where children do something that commenters consider sexually suggestive.

It also said it had disabled comments on tens of millions of videos that "could be subject to predatory comments". Others are uploaded from accounts that seem to collect videos of minors.

The move comes just one month after the USA wireless carrier announced it would resume buying advertising on YouTube, after a almost two-year boycott of the platform.

The shocking video has been edited in between the Nintendo game Splatoon and the man Filthy Frank a YouTuber says "Remember, kids, sideways for attention, longways for results". Perhaps advertisers pulling their YouTube pre-roll ads, which many have done over the last 48 hours, will help push this process along more quickly.

Watson's video shows that YouTube's comments section, when it comes to giving child predators a forum in which they can indulge their predilections, goes beyond vile and into the realm of risky.

Watson criticized YouTube for monetizing these videos: he called out major brands, including McDonald's, Lysol, Disney, Reese's, Dodge Ram, and Maybelline, among many others.

"We have strict policies that govern what videos we allow ads to appear on, and videos that promote anti-vaccination content are a violation of those policies".

Though parents should talk to their children about the videos, Dr Kaslow said, YouTube Kids also should address the issue, explaining to children what the videos were and why children should never harm themselves.
