YouTube responded to the outcry over its decision to punish “controversial” opinions by demonetizing videos by insisting that the policy had already been in place for three years.
The Google-owned platform recently released new “advertiser friendly” guidelines that stipulated how discussion of “controversial or sensitive subjects and events” would be punished by the user being unable to collect advertising money on such videos.
This prompted a huge backlash from the YouTube community, with many seeing the move as a way of disincentivizing the creation of any videos that touched on contentious political or social issues.
