YouTube has reportedly removed a staunch pedophilia supporter from their platform for violating sitewide community guidelines.
Amos Yee, 19, took to Facebook to announce that Youtube had taken his channel down—something he believes was due to his pro-pedophilia stance. Yee’s termination comes weeks after The Sun reported that the US Toy Association had yanked their ads from YouTube after discovering one of their campaigns had appeared on his channel. The outlet reported that the organization’s ads on early childhood development were incorporated into Amos playlist, entitled “pedophilia is life.”
My Youtube Channel and all the videos there have been completely taken down because of my views defending pedophilia. Well
In September, Yee was granted asylum in the U.S. after being imprisoned twice in Singapore for creating videos that criticized religion and the government. In December, Yee said he was booted from an immigration facility in Chicago because of his controversial comments on pedophilia, according to BBC News.
While YouTube lists various reasons why a channel could be deleted in their community guidelines, the company has yet to confirm if—and why—Yee’s channel was removed. However, Coconuts Singapore called attention to the fact that Yee has argued for the age of consent to be abolished, and just last week, he bragged about having the support of the North American Man Boy Love Association, more commonly known as NAMBLA.
So NAMBLA (The North American Man Boy Love Association (it’s the largest pedophile advocacy group in the world)) said…
Yee’s YouTube channel had been active for three years and boasted 40,000 followers, according to The South China Morning Post.
The news outlet noted that this wasn’t the first time Yee had been booted from a social media platform. Facebook had reportedly suspended Yee’s account for 30 days last November. He also had his Twitter account suspended last year but returned under a different handle.
My Youtube channel I built up for over 3 years, has been taken down….
