Diamond and Silk are in trouble – the monetization to their videos is stopped and according to them, it’s because they “such a huge supporters” of the president.
YouTube no longer allows making money off of “extremism” promoting videos, but Diamond and Silk’s have for some reason been flagged as “Not Suitable For All Advertisers.”
I would say that their videos are quite the opposite! It seems like YouTube is trying to suppress their viewpoints by de-funding the videos, but I bet they won’t give up!
YouTube’s new guidelines were released August 1st: “The plan is to apply tougher treatment to legal videos, but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If those videos don’t violate our policies, but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos won’t be deleted from YouTube and also won’t be recommended, monetized and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.” This seems like it could be abused to silence conservative speakers like Diamond and Silk.
