YouTube may allow hate speech if it's part of a larger argument-Vox
The start of the matter was that news media Vox journalist Carlos Maza revealed it as being 'attacked' by right-wing commentator & comedian Steven Crowder who works on YouTube. Maza is a person with a background that is homosexual and Latin American, but Crowder seems to have continued to make it a source of laughter in the movie that posted Maza on his YouTube channel about these points.
In the following post, Maza revealed how Crowder was attacking with Maza as a source. As Crowder turned Maza on the show, it seems that Crowder's followers harassed Maza on Twitter and leaked personal information such as phone numbers.
Since I started working at Vox, Steven Crowder has been making video after video 'debunking' Strikethrough. Every single video has included repeated, overt attacks on my sexual orientation and ethnicity. Here's a sample: pic.twitter.com/UReCcQ2J— Carlos Maza (@gaywonk) May 31, 2019
In contrast, YouTube's official account replies directly to Maza on Twitter. In this, YouTube expressed the view that Mr. Crowder's remark 'It hurts people but it is not a violation of policy.' From Mr. Crowder's point of view 'program host,' Vox indicates that the statement was an opinion expressed in a broader political debate and was judged not to be harassment . .
We take allegations of Harassment very seriously – we know this is important and impacts a lot of people.— TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) June 4, 2019
YouTube has a ' policy on harassment and cyberbullying ', and clearly Mr. Crowder is part of a 'bigger debate' despite being harassed based on sexual orientation and cultural background. YouTube's view that such an action would be allowed would have caused a big stir. And, Maza's post was retweeted in tens of thousands, and each news media came to be taken up.
And at this time YouTube revised the community guidelines . While the new guidelines mention efforts to combat white supremacitarian and other extremist hate speeches, “The content that contains malicious expressions is primarily intended for education, documentary, science, and art. , May be permitted on YouTube. ' Although YouTube has not been concerned with the revised guidelines and Maza's, many people, including Google employees, have protested against YouTube's behavior as if hate speech is acceptable.

And on June 10, 2019 local time, CEO Susan Washiky of YouTube apologized for the situation at the developer conference in Arizona, USA. 'I understand that the decisions we made were harmful to the LGBT Q community, and this was not what we intended,' said Wassicky.

'We personally apologize, too. YouTube is the home of many LGBT Q creators, and that's why it's an emotional issue. It's more difficult than making a decision, it's our mouth 'And, even if we decide, there will be a lot of people in the LGBTQ community on YouTube. We have openly wanted to help this community, and the company 'I hope to continue to support them in the future,' he continued, and explained the importance of 'the need to maintain consistency from a policy point of view.' In other words, if you delete one content, you will need to delete many other content.
The company said that when to act on a channel depends on the context. Late-night programs and rap movies may contain words and content that may be considered harmful, but from the context of “late-night programs” and “laps”, these content are targeted for deletion. It can not be considered.
On the other hand, YouTube has decided that the content of Crowder is 'not suitable for monetization' and has stopped advertising. In response to this, Crowder is carrying out the '# Vox Adpocalypse' campaign, which states 'Vox is trying to shut up individual creators.'
Maza believes that turning off advertising on YouTube will not solve the problem. 'The abusers will use this as a proof of discrimination against them. Based on this, they will sell and sell their products, broadcast live shows, and seek financial support from their followers. Advertising revenue is not a problem, the problem is on the platform, 'Maza posted on Twitter .
While watching a large number of movies in order to understand the context of the content, Mr. Woessicky found that Crowder's movie was not a violation of the policy, but at the same time identified an area that could be improved.
