The YouTube personalities known as Diamond and Silk are accusing the Google-owned platform of censoring their popular video channel because of their strong support of President Trump.
The duo announced on Thursday that 95% of their videos were demonetized, with YouTube citing that the content wasn’t suitable for advertisers.
That got the girls to thinking, that with all the crackdowns on free speech across America, perhaps they were the next to be made examples of for straying from leftist groupthink:
What Diamond and Silk found strangest was how the same videos have been monetized with no issues for the last two years, but suddenly, they “violated” policy:
The duo, whose channel has over 90,000 subscribers, also said a class action lawsuit against YouTube and parent company Google could be on the way to respond, stating, “This… S.ugar H.oney I.ce T.ea have got to stop.”
Within the last two weeks, YouTube announced it was cracking down on content on its official blog:
We’ll soon be applying tougher treatment to videos that aren’t illegal but have been flagged by users as potential violations of our policies on hate speech and violent extremism. If we find that these videos don’t violate our policies but contain controversial religious or supremacist content, they will be placed in a limited state. The videos will remain on YouTube behind an interstitial, won’t be recommended, won’t be monetized, and won’t have key features including comments, suggested videos, and likes.”
And so, it would appear that conservative black women supporting Trump proves too controversial for the thought police over at YouTube.
