YouTube pulls Red Dead Redemption 2 suffragette violence channel, then reinstates with age warnings
YouTube has backtracked its decision to suspend a channel which hosted videos of a suffragette being beaten up in Red Dead Redemption 2.
The original video which sparked the controversy, “Red Dead Redemption 2 – Beating Up Annoying Feminist,” was posted by a YouTuber named Shirrako last week. Shirrako’s channel is now back online, although the video now has an age warning attached. All of Shirako’s other videos – including “Annoying Feminist Fed To Pigs”, “Dropping Feminist To Hell & Killing The Devil” and “Annoying Feminist Fed To Alligator” – have similarly been reinstated with age warnings.
Ryan Wyatt, Global Head of Gaming for YouTube, has explained the videos had been re-reviewed and deemed not to violate community guidelines. In a separate tweet, Wyatt called the channel suspension an error and said “the reviewer will be educated on this outcome and on how to avoid repeating this mistake”.
