Last video deleted, comments disabled and inability to post any new content for a period of seven days, the least we can say is that the current President of the United States’ account suffered a shock treatment of from YouYube.
Indeed, Google’s video platform fears that the new exits of the future ex-president will further fuel violence, this ahead of the inauguration of his successor, Joe Biden, which should take place in a week.
Avoid further violence
“After verification and in light of fears regarding the possibility of further violence, we have removed the new content from Donald J. Trump’s account, for violation of the charter of use of our service” Youtube announced on Twitter.
“The channel now has a warning and is provisionally suspended for a period of seven days (…) given the concerns about the violence they could cause we have decided to deactivate comments on the account until further notice”.
The offending video, the one that resulted in the suspension of the presidential account, is a seemingly banal campaign clip. It shows a Donald Trump speaking to reporters and leaving the White House for Texas. Nonetheless, much of the comments below the video, mostly from supporters of the incumbent president, appeared to believe a call for insurgency on the part of their leader.
Words such as “There is always a possible response” or “Our journey has only just begun” were easily interpreted as calls for violent action by its most vocal supporters.
The suspension of Donald Trump’s YouTube account follows identical actions on Twitter, Facebook, but also Shopify, Reddit and Twitch. These decisions on the part of social networks come a few days before the official handover of power while an internal FBI note, to which the ABC channel was able to have access, fears the organization of a series of violent actions through the country.
