Here’s Why #YouTubeIsOverParty is Currently Trending. [UPDATE]

Per TeenVogue:

“The platform’s ‘Restricted Mode’ has been notably blocking and filtering out content from LBGBTQ+ creators, which is confusing considering that the feature is only designed to “use community flagging, age-restrictions, and other signals to identify and filter out potentially inappropriate content.”

The question is: Will you join the #YouTubeIsOverParty?


UPDATE

YouTube’s official Creators account (@YTCreators) has publicly responded in an effort to qwell the negative press the site is currently receiving, by issuing the statement – below.
