YouTubers Help Reinstate Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Banned For Violence Towards Women

A YouTuber by the name of Shirrako recently took to Twitter to vent his frustration over being banned from the site for his Red Dead Redemption 2 uploads.

Shirrako was reportedly contacted by YouTube in relation to a video he’d entitled “Red Dead Redemption 2 – Beating Up Annoying Feminist.”

Annoyed by the move, he tweeted various YouTubers asking for their help and the likes of Boogie, PewDiePie and KEEMSTAR all jumped on-board to slam YouTube for banning the channel.

As the tweets started to grow in popularity, YouTube stepped in to reinstate the account following a review. The reinstatement included an age restriction the content.

Ryan Watt, staff at YouTube, tweeted the following statement: “This was flagged this AM to me. The videos were re-reviewed, and we determined they should be age restricted, as they were not Community Guideline violations. The channel will be reinstated. All 8,000 videos will be rolled back to his channel.”

Since his channel has been back online, he’s gone on to upload a couple more RDR2 videos, including one titled “Red Dead Redemption 2: Beating Up Chinese Man,” and “Deporting A Mexican.”

YouTube’s reaction to the divisive videos continues the debate about censorship in videos on the site, especially when it comes to feminism, sexism, racism and prejudice.
