Remove White Supremacist Content From YouTube

In the wake of the most recent mosque shooting I believe it is time to take action as a community and remove white supremacist content from our platforms. One of the largest platforms for white supremacist content is PewDiePie's YouTube channel. PewDiePie has on many occasions proven once and again to promote and affiliate himself with white supremacist and Nazi ideologies. Worst of all his channel is very much aimed toward children in their formative years. The New Zealand mosque shooter even mentioned PewDiePie by name and asked people to subscribe. PewDiePie has in the past: used the N slur twice in two separate videos and has hired people to say the N slur ( video of him saying the swedish version ( he has promoted videos that contain Adolf Hitler speeches and anti-Semitic cartoons ( he paid Indian men on website Fiverr to hold up signs that say death to all jews ( he performed the nazi heil in one of his videos ( he used images of famous African-Americans (Neil deGrasse Tyson, Barack Obama) captioned with the wrong names ( he made a clip of a man dressed as Jesus holding a sign stating "hitler did absolutely nothing wrong" ( he makes rape jokes ( ( in his face-swapping video he repeatedly uses an image of actress Leslie Jones to represent Harambe, the gorilla killed in the Cincinnati zoo last year. ( Sean Vanman of Campo Anto studios which developed the popular game, Firewatch, has filed DMCA reports to remove the streams containing his games from the internet. Even though PewDiePie's streams have brought his company over 5.7 million views, Mr. Vanman saw the dangers. The Disney corporation also saw the dangers and terminated all contracts with PewDiePie. Up until 2017, YouTube considered his content "brand safe". In 2017 they took minor action to appease angered customers. It is not enough. Even if PewDiePie cleaned up his act his comment sections are still a cesspool of white supremacist activities and commentaries. At what point is YouTube legally responsible for the content it provides and allows on its platform? I believe that his actions constitute a clear and present danger to society. YouTube’s guidelines state, "if content is intended to be humorous or satirical, it may remain online, “even if offensive or in poor taste.” However, “if the uploader’s intent is to incite violence or hatred, it will be removed.”  How long will YouTube remain negligent? It's Time to remove PewDiePie from YouTube permanently and develop AI to find and remove extremist material instead of having the SPLC do their work for them. Please sign this petition.

Google: Take down instructional videos for illegal automatic gun modifications!

It only took fifteen minutes for the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history to occur. One man was able to injure or kill 574 people from a Las Vegas hotel window. The Clark County Sheriff has confirmed that two of the weapons used in the massacre “appeared to have been mechanically converted to full automatic fire.”Despite automatic weapons being illegal, people can turn to places like YouTube to learn how to turn their weapons into killing machines. A quick search for “diy automatic rifle” on Youtube returns 1.8 million video results! These videos provide advice and step-by-step guides for private citizens who want to make illegal modifications to otherwise legally-available semi-automatic firearms.YouTube shouldn’t be allowing videos that teach people how to turn their weapons into deadly, illegal machine guns. YouTube must remove and ban these videos now.I believe the ease with which anyone can turn to a website like Youtube to find tips and detailed instructional guides to make deadly weapons even more lethal presents a clear and present danger to society.Platforms like Youtube should be part of the solution to gun violence – not an enabler of deadly behavior. They must take action now. Enough is enough.If you agree with me, please sign and share this petition calling on Youtube to take down millions of videos showing gun owners how to illegally modify their semi-automatic weapons into fully automatic killing machines today.

YouTube, Stop Exploitation of Indian Children!

I recently stumbled across a series of very disturbing videos on YouTube. Each video shows Indian children in a village sitting in front of a blackboard out in the open. They are being taught to say lines in English. The lines vary from video to video. “Adolf Hitler did nothing wrong”“Feminism is Cancer” Soon the lines get obscene. “I’m not gay, but $20 is $20.” “I get more a** than a toilet seat.” The other lines have worse content with filthy words that I won’t repeat. These lines are blatantly racist, sexual and filled with hatred. And the videos feature 8 to 10-year-old Indian children saying these lines. Sign my petition asking YouTube to take down these offensive videos. A ‘tuition teacher’ is charging 5 dollars to make these innocent children say these perverted lines and have their videos put up on the internet. Indian children are on sale for the world to do with as they please. If this disturbs and disgusts you, sign my petition asking YouTube to take down these videos immediately. This tuition teacher is not just making his class children say vulgar things. He is also taking money to write messages on their half-naked bodies and make them dance. Again, these videos are online for everyone to see. I asked YouTube to take down the video and they said that they could not find “a violation of their community guidelines”. Is exploitation of children for commercial gain and featuring them in obscene content not a violation? Sign and share my petition to ensure YouTube does not allow this kind of content on their platform. And tell everyone who cares about children. If enough of us get together and show our outrage, we can get YouTube to respond. We need to stop this immediately or this twisted trend will spread and become a plague that will expose our country’s children to the world and the internet’s scariest monsters.

Tell YOUTUBE to Leave FUNnel Vision Alone & Restore DOH MUCH FUN

The youtubers on the channel are having videos removed from the site due to pressure from advertisers to stop advertising on inappropriate kids videos, however FUNnel Vision and Doh Much Fun especially has No Inappropriate Kids videos.  The content ranges from many things but there is never any cursing, there is no bullying of children and most importantly there is no masquerading of kids content happening which is what Youtube has been targeting.  Youtube has cast too wide of a net saying they will remove videos if they feel inappropriate comments have been left on them by child predators.  Funnel Vision cannot control who leaves comments on their videos but are being the ones persecuted for such action instead of going after the commenters themselves. Youtube is targeting a wide array of videos based on certain keywords like waterpark, mermaid, pool, fashion show because they think kids may be inappropriate clothed or exploited which sounds great, but they aren't reviewing every video, they are just completely taking them down saying they are innocent based on metadata.  Judging a book by its cover! They are also not reviewing our appeals, it's like appeals have been turned off.  There are other terms which may seem like a no brainer to remove from the kids sector like videos containing "poop" or "scary" but again, if we play a major brand nationally released board game like Doggie Doo or Poopy Head or play with Playdoh Poo Dough Prank, that's inappropriate too? What if we make DIY Slime that's brown and joke around, that's also inappropriate? No, they've gone too far.  Also if we use the word scary, it's not Rated R scary, it's just kid age appropriate spooky but because we use the word they aren't allowing us to remove that word, instead whole vid comes down. They have not answered or worked with FUNnel Vision or Doh Much Fun to understand what the problem is with their videos.  They've been creating videos since 2013 with no community guidelines broken and all of a sudden some advertisers come along and say we don't want to be apart of disturbing kids videos which was in reference to the take down of recent Toy Freaks channel and other channels where kids costumed characters were doing adult and inappropriate things, so all Youtube is doing is removing any kids video / channel just to show force.  If you feel FUNnel Vision and Doh Much Fun do not deserve this treatment, please sign the petition.
