In this clip, "Louder with Crowder" host Steven Crowder highlighted the potentially permanent ban his channel is facing for what he described as "three hard strikes" against one of his parody videos that YouTube claimed was in violation of the platform's copyright policy.
According to Crowder, YouTube flagged his "Dr. Trump" parody for copyright infringement, placing Crowder's channel in jeopardy of being permanently removed.
"I know that you hear a lot about shadow banning, demonetization, or a lot of Chicken Littles out there, but I do want to at least inform you in case this channel goes away for good as to why," Crowder said.
Crowder explained that his "Dr. Trump" parody video received the three strikes within the span of one week, prompting YouTube to flag the video, which could potentially lead to a permanent ban.
According to Crowder, YouTube claims they want conservatives on their platform because it promotes "a healthy discussion," but has banned, demonetized and restricted his "Change my Mind" videos on several occasions in the past.
Crowder said if demonetizing his videos would solve the issue, then YouTube should demonetize them, adding that he created #MugClub so that his content doesn't end up at the mercy of big tech.
