At least according to youtuber CoryxKenshin, who started a storm about being victim of racism or favouritism within youtube. Yes, boys and girls, he is convinced that robots are out to get him. I think we should re-watch Terminator movies, just in case...
Youtuber CoryxKenshin raised alarm over his mistreatment from the platform over The Mortuary Assistant video. While the game contains scenes related to self-harm and suicide youtube have age-restricted access to CoryxKenshin’s video. He then checked that JackSepticEye’s and Markiplier’s videos, both containing the same scenes were not age-restricted, so he reached the only logical explanation (for him) - it’s either racism (because he is Black) or it’s favouritism. Just footnote: as far as I know Markiplier is of Asian descent or mixed race, which makes the first argument invalid.
Since CoryxKenshin uploaded his video complaining about his mistreatment both videos (on JackSepticEye’s and Markiplier’s channels) were also age-restricted, which... actually invalidates the second argument. Then there was, as usual on youtube, some weird stuff going on when some of those videos were cleared, then again age-restricted, cleared, etc. In his video CoryxKenshin raised some valid points about youtube being a total mess with no clear rules, but to be honest everyone already knew that (everyone, who ever used that platform). But for him behind it was "either racism, favouritism or mixture of both" and he raised that matter with his personal youtube representative.
Umm... What?! You have your own youtube rep, someone you can complain to, someone to discuss your problems with and you think favouritism is a bad thing? I don’t wanna rain on your parade mate, but 99% of youtubers do not have their own yuoutube reps, so if they get hit by something it sticks and they have no one to turn to. Of course they can send angry letters that will be answered by AI and that is it! Then I checked who CoryxKenshin is and... he has 14 million subscribers and on a good month gets 30 million views. Wow man, how do you cope with that racist youtube, who doesn’t let you grow? It must be hell to be victimized so much that within 1 year your channel grew by 50%...
Youtube, just like any other google product, is a frickin mess, everyone knows that who ever used them, but playing victim (and especially race card) is really pathetic from someone who is among those privileged on the platform. Just like any company that is too big for its own good youtube does stupid stuff, again everyone knows that, with each year it gets worse, everyone knows that, with each year more on the platform is done by AI, which never understands such things as context, everyone knows that. So what is your point dear CoryxKenshin?
AI is out to get you because you are Black? Ok, let’s assume that this is actually true. So how did you grew your channel so fast? How do they still let you grow so fast? You have huge number of subscribers and views, you must be (I assume) making good money on youtube, so... Are they so inept in their racism or they just too lazy to act on it? And as for favouritism... Really? That is your best shot? You are one of the small group of privileged people on the platform, so I guess it would be fair that your complain should be not about being victim, but about not being privileged enough.
You wanna be treated like Markiplier and JackSepticEye? I’m pretty sure you already are, but since they have more subscribers, they are more important for youtube, which, as you might have heard, is a business. Any small youtuber could say that they wanna be treated just like you are right now, but without millions of subscribers they will never even be heard by youtube, so really, I wouldn’t go down that road if I were you.
Let’s say that youtube will remove your privileges, you will have no rep and everyone will be given the same chance to be heard by youtube with their complain. Then when your video will be age-restricted you will file your complain and... wait in a line for months and months until it will be reviewed by youtube employee.
You, dear CoryxKenshin, are part of huge and inept platform that youtube is, there are incompetent people working there (like in any other company), there is some buggy software involved (like in any other company), there are some issues with the direction the whole thing moves (like in any other company), so just take under consideration that the world is not out to get you, it’s just how the world works.

YouTube is about to crack down on one, tiny aspect of their platform, which might lead to beginning of the end for this giant streaming provider.

Trainwreck, one of the more prominent Twitch streamers, just started a new platform for "content creators", called Kick and it aims to provide the best possible environment for the streamers. Sounds great, but it is not true.
I recently revisited old British sitcom called Cowboys, about inept builders taking jobs they are not qualified for, doing them as quickly and as cheaply as possible and then running away with the money. Few days later GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition premiered and I got the strange feeling of deja vu.
No, it’s not title to sequel for adventures of not greatest superhero called Pathetic Drama... which is not bad idea actually. Nope, it’s the Bayonetta 3 pathetic drama that just wouldn’t die.
Elden Ring premiered recently to pretty much universal acclaim - critics and users seem to love the concept, the outlook, the formula, the experience. And someone should tell FromSoftware they’re do...
