YouTube has confirmed that it has “suspended monetisation” on Russell Brand’s channel due to “violating” its “creator responsibility policy”.Brand was last week accused of rape and sexual assaults alleged to have taken place between 2006 and 2013.
Brand has denied those allegations. BBC News writes that the Metropolitan Police has since received a report of an alleged sexual assault in 2003. “If a creator’s off-platform behaviour harms our users, employees or ecosystem, we take action”, a YouTube spokesperson said today (September 19).
The online platform added that it was taking action “to protect” its users.YouTube’s decision to block his revenue streams applies to “all channels that may be owned or operated” by the comedian, it confirmed to the BBC.In recent years Brand has reinvented himself as a wellness guru and YouTube star discussing conspiracy theories about politics, UFOs, COVID and more to millions of followers.
