YouTube plans to change profanity rules that have sparked outrage from creators
The platform’s gaming community rallied against the company this week after some creators noticed their old videos had been demonetized, TechCrunch reports.
The culprit is a new policy the company introduced last November to make specific types of content more ad-friendly.
The company’s approach to violence and profanity was completely overhauled when those changes to the platform’s advertiser-friendly content restrictions were announced.
“Over the past few weeks, we’ve heard from many creators about this update,” said YouTube spokesperson Michael Aciman.
“That feedback is important to us and we are in the process of making some adjustments to this policy to address their concerns. We will reach out to our maker community shortly once we have more to share,” Aciman added.
Last November, the video-sharing platform had expanded its definition of violence beyond real-world images, including in-game violent content “focused on a real named person or acts created to create shocking experiences (such as brutal mass murder).),’ the report said.
