YouTube Removes PewDiePie’s Video that Targeted Cocomelon, Here’s Why

A video from the famous YouTuber PewDiePie has been reportedly removed by YouTube from the platform for violating guidelines involving child safety and harassment. Bloomberg said that the title of the video which had been taken down was “Coco.”

Based on reports, the said video was a diss track that criticized Cocomelon, a popular children’s channel on YouTube.

A Twitter user reacted to what happened to PewDiePie video, saying “Damn, that really hurts to hear.” And the official Twitter account of Team YouTube has dropped an explanation.

According to the Team YouTube, Child safety has been violated “by looking like it was made for kids but containing inappropriate content.” Then harassment too since the video had “crossed the line.”

“Also, any reuploads of the original, including full length or partial reuploads, clips, etc will be removed too,” the Team YouTube added, noting that still images are “ok.”
