The clip that got Ishowspeed banned from YouTube
Why was Ishowspeed banned from YouTube?
IShowSpeed was banned from the video sharing platform, YouTube, after showcasing explicit content during his latest live stream. The young YouTuber acknowledged that it wasn’t content that should be watched by kids and due to this, he hid his screen as the explicit content played in the background.
So at a point, people are able to watch what was happening as the picture disappears for a split second. A total of about 90k viewers had been watching the stream while the adult act was on-going.
People were quick to react to the same on social media with some slamming the YouTuber for showing the content to the young audience. As of the time of writing this, IShowSpeed has not commented on the backlash.
Why did YouTube ban Ishowspeed?
Just like every other social media platform, YouTube is also particular about the content people display and what others see on their page. Anyone who is caught violating its rule is automatically banned from the platform.
The platform has especially strict guidelines for content revolving around nudity and sexual content policies. The website also notes that if they come across content that is seen violating the rules they will be taking down the video while sending a warning to the user.
It also notes that the user will get three strikes and if they continue to make mistakes their account will be terminated. It is unclear if or why IShowSpeed has violated the policies but the social media influencer did mention he has been banned.
Recall that this is not the first time IShowSpeed is facing issues with a streaming platform. Three months ago, he found himself in trouble after a clip of him getting angry at another player went viral. In it, he can be heard saying: “What b****? Is a b**** talking to me? Is a female talking to me? Am I trippin’? Get off the f****** game and do your husband’s dishes.” Shortly after this, he was banned from the platform.
