“Most Offensive Video Ever” Skewers YouTube’s Latest Censorship Debacle
YouTube recently got themselves into a pickle pretzel over their demonetization policy for videos deemed "offensive." Offensive to include, well, just about anything, turns out. Which inspired a little offensive video of our own. No, there are no funny cats. Don't get too excited.
How quick until YouTube demonetizes this? This video is like when you're in fourth grade, and you played the game of tipping your chair back. You remember that? And your teacher told you if you fell, you'd get a detention? New game, right? How close to the floor can you tip?
That's exactly what we did here. Because what's offensive to one is comedy to the other. Also, let's just say whatever we want to say and let the market decide, yeah?
YouTube said no. They built up their market off the backs of people who created content, and now they're not so hot on paying those people so much. They're hiding behind "IT'S OFFENSIVE!" mask to pull this off. Do they have the right? Sure. They're a private company. But still, kind of a snake-like, scummy thing to do, no?
I talked more about what YouTube is doing on our last show. Watch it. Learn something. Don't get triggered.
