Google Terminates All Of R.Kelly’s Channels From YouTube

Google Terminates All Of R.Kelly’s Channels From YouTube

R.Kelly’s YouTube channels have officially been removed. 

After the disgraced singer was found guilty in his federal racketeering and sex trafficking trial, Google terminated all of the pages that have his videos and songs on them.

If viewers attempt to search for any R.Kelly music or videos, they will be met with a message that reads, “This account has been terminated for a violation of YouTube’s Terms of Service.”

The pages have been removed due to the “creator is participating in abuse or violence, demonstrating cruelty, or participating in fraudulent/deceptive behavior leading to real-world harm.”

YouTube’s head of legal Nicole Alston said in a statement, “The egregious actions committed by R.Kelly warrant penalties beyond standard enforcement measures due to a potential to cause widespread harm.” 

Thoughts on this?
