YouTube Chief Executive Officer Susan Wojcicki apologized to the LGBTQ community for the company’s response to homophobic and racist jokes in videos from conservative comedian and commentator Steven Crowder.
YouTube said Wednesday it will prohibit videos “alleging that a group is superior in order to justify discrimination, segregation or exclusion based on qualities like age, gender, race, caste, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status.”
YouTube’s automated recommendation system — which drives most of the platform’s billions of views by suggesting what users should watch next — had begun showing the video to users who watched other videos of prepubescent, partially clothed children, a team of researchers has found.
In the clip, the candidate and former MP Pradeep Kumar Singh is heard instructing a worker “to take 15 to 20 motorcycles”. He is then heard saying that they have to save the Hindu religion and that they cannot let Araria become another Pakistan.
