YouTube has terminated the account of popular anti-SJW content creator Bearing.
YouTube’s suspension of Bearing, who had over 300,000 subscribers, was announced and protested by other YouTube stars.
Just woke to find out about Bearings channel being taken down… he’s looking into it now and we’ll keep you posted. ❤️

I call on every single one of my fans to tweet @TeamYouTube and raise holy hell until Bearing is restored.
We are far more numerous than these flagging bullshit moralists and their buddies at mediamatters and other partisan hack sites. We must FIGHT. We must stand TOGETHER.

Some users questioned whether the channel was terminated for advertising cannabis oils, however a number of popular channels which also advertise similar oils are still active on the platform.
WHAT THE FUCK?????? WHY????? he’s been making pretty solid content lately. none of it was crazy controversial either. do you think its the cannabis oil ads? youtube has been going hard on people who talk about weed lately for some reason.

Attempting to visit Bearing’s channel returns users with a notice claiming that channel participated in “spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations,” an allegation which other YouTube creators denied.
“His videos as of lately have been pretty tame. I don’t think they’ve been anything out of the normal,” declared YouTuber TheQuartering.
“Bearing had a completely clean YouTube record, no strikes of any kind, and then out of nowhere today he got three copyright strikes in a row. That’s a little suspicious, wouldn’t you say?” added popular YouTube star Undoomed, who also has over 300,000 subscribers, in his own video.
YouTube has previously sanctioned conservative, libertarian, and anti-SJW accounts, including Mike Cernovich, Sargon of Akkad, Paul Joseph Watson, the Daily Mail, PragerU, Sky Williams, and Steven Crowder.
This year, a report revealed that YouTube had partnered with the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) to police the platform.
