YouTube disables Milo Yiannopoulos livestream hours before immigration speech in New Mexico
YouTube has the ability to broadcast events live as they happen, but YouTube decided that it would not allow it in this particular case. Only after Milo Yiannopoulos finished his speech did YouTube allow him to put it up on his channel. So here it is:
YouTube Disables MILO Livestream Hours Before Immigration Speech in New Mexico
January 27, 2017
YouTube disabled Breitbart News Senior Editor MILO’s livestreaming ability on Friday, just hours before his speech on immigration at the University of New Mexico.
MILO’s ability to host livestreams was withdrawn from YouTube after his video “MILO At UC – Colorado Springs: Democrats Are The ‘Party Of The Cuckold,’” was flagged and subsequently removed.
“Your video ‘MILO At UC – Colorado Springs: Democrats Are The ‘Party Of The Cuckold’ was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines,” YouTube declared in a notice to MILO. “We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.”
Though MILO has appealed the channel restrictions, YouTube has yet to remove the livestream ban.
Consequently, MILO’s speech at the University of New Mexico tonight will not be livestreamed. The speech will be posted in its entirely to MILO’s YouTube channel after the event as usual, but fans will not be able to watch it live.
