Youtube shadow bans one of it’s most popular content creators, than tries to say they didn’t

YouTube is trying to ease controversy over allegations that it shadowbanned its second-most-popular content creator, PewDiePie, but his fans said the company’s explanation didn’t match up with what they saw on the platform.

Pressed for answers as to why PewDiePie subscribers weren’t receiving notifications of his new videos and weren’t able to find his channel or content in searches, the video-sharing platform tweeted on Thursday that “YouTube doesn’t shadowban channels. It’s possible the video was flagged by our systems as potentially violative and needs to be reviewed first before it shows up in search, etc.”
