Conservative commentator Dan Bongino sent a scathing email to YouTube after the company temporarily suspended his channel, concluding his message by writing “Respectfully Kiss My A**,” before signing his name.
A YouTube spokesperson told the Daily Beast, “We removed a video for violating our policies on COVID-19 misinformation, specifically for comments that masks are useless, resulting in a first strike on the channel.”
The Big Tech behemoth also suspended the channel’s monetization “for repeatedly violating our Advertiser-Friendly Guidelines on harmful and dangerous acts.”
One of the penalties for a first strike is that a channel cannot upload videos for one week.
Bongino did not mince words, lambasting the company as a “s**t platform,” and noting that he is an investor in Rumble, a different platform that he said “respects free-speech.”
