Why was IShowSpeed banned from YouTube?

IShowSpeed has been banned from the platform after showcasing explicit content during his latest live stream. The YouTuber acknowledged that it wasn’t content that should be seen by children and due to this he hid his screen as the explicit content played in the background.

However, at one point, people are able to see what is happening as the picture disappears for a split second. There were nearly 90k viewers who had been watching the stream while the adult act was taking place.

People were quick to react to the same on social media with some slamming the YouTuber for showing the content to the young audience. As of now, IShowSpeed has not commented on the backlash.

YouTube is very particular about its guidelines

Just like every other social media platform, YouTube is also particular about the content people display and what others get to see. Due to this, anyone who is seen violating its rule is naturally banned from the platform.

The platform has especially strict guidelines for content revolving around nudity and sexual content policies. The website also notes that if they come across content that is seen violating the rules they will be taking down the video while sending a warning to the user.

It also notes that the user will get three strikes and if they continue to make mistakes their account will be terminated. It is unclear if or why IShowSpeed has violated the policies but the social media influencer did mention he has been banned.

He has also been banned from Twitch before

This is not the first time IShowSpeed is facing issues with a streaming platform. Three months ago, he found himself in trouble after a clip of him getting angry at another player went viral.

In it, he can be heard saying: “What b****? Is a b**** talking to me? Is a female talking to me? Am I trippin’? Get off the f****** game and do your husband’s dishes.” Shortly after this, he was banned from the platform.
