Or banning gun videos because they could teach someone how to shoot up a school.

It’s no surprise YouTube opted not to censor this genre based on their workplace shooting incident. Companies are getting more and more paranoid these days.

Gun youtubers were hit very hard by adpocalypse to my knowledge.

Big advertisers dictate what content is allowed on YouTube. Corporations like Disney and Coca Cola get to decide what we can watch.

Aren't there any corporations that market to people who like guns, violent videos, etc? Is if you like guns you don't exist or consume anything? I bet that a lot of people that like guns drink a lot of coca cola and eat a lot of junk food.
