YouTube has begun a purge of accounts on their platform and a lot of people think it’s because of the crazy feud betwen Vox social justice warrior Carlos Maza and Steven Crowder.
Some people are taking to twitter to blame Maza for their accounts being deleted or demonetized:
Carlos Maza has left thousands of YouTubers up shits creek with no way to pay their rent. All because he couldn’t handle being called gay and Mexican despite in fact being gay and Mexican. I dislike most of @scrowder’s content but this is a truly terrifying state of affairs pic.twitter.com/CqnR3ggraJ— adam22 (@adam22) June 6, 2019
From the Hill:
YouTube on Wednesday updated its policies to ban videos that promote extremist ideologies such as white supremacy or caste superiority, a move that could see hundreds of thousands of videos removed.
The changes aimed at curbing hate speech and misinformation come amid escalating scrutiny from regulators and lawmakers around the world over how the company, which is owned by Google, deals with bigoted or potentially radicalizing content.
But the ban was derided by critics on Wednesday as a public relations stunt. YouTube announced the policy in the midst of a high-profile controversy over its decision to allow a conservative commentator accused of racist and homophobic harassment to remain on the platform.
Yup. This is the chaos we’re in because they tried to police their platform based on definitions of “hatred” that the insane left has been pitching.
I hate that I gotta defend Crowder to make this point. But this is just going to keep happening. All the shit we think is normal in rap videos is going to be up on the chopping block next.

Carlos Maza of vox literally destroyed the livelihoods if not the lives of many honest good creators, all of this because his feelings got hurt. BULL— Luke Rudkowski (@Lukewearechange) June 5, 2019
Clearly he is not a journalist but an activist working for the special interest of NBC trying to destroy the competitors to MSM
Up until today, Carlos Maza was someone I disagreed with politically yet respected. Today it has become official that he is a free speech terrorist who is in the process of destroying the ad revenue of thousands of Youtubers who are caught in the crossfire#VoxAdpocalypse— Nat Marlowe (@nat_marlowe) June 6, 2019
Now he’s all sad:
What’s happening to Ford is fucking awful. He’s a good journalist doing important work.— Carlos Maza (@gaywonk) June 6, 2019
I don’t understand how @YouTube is still so bad at this. How can they not differentiate between white supremacist content and good faith reporting on white supremacy? https://t.co/AEpDvTH4I1
It’s the law of unintended consequences, idiot. If you actually listened to conservatives instead of just sneering at them condescendingly, you might have learned about it sometime before you ruined YouTube for so many creators….
