YouTube permanently suspends white nationalist Nick Fuentes
Google on Friday terminated the YouTube channel of white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
A notice on the channel, which was known as “America First with Nicholas J Fuentes,” states that the termination is related to violations of the platform’s hate speech rules.
“This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy prohibiting hate speech,” the notice reads.
The removal comes just over one month after Google opted to demonetize the channel and end the far-right figure’s ability to earn revenue from advertisements.
At the time, a video on Fuentes’ channel centered around Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) was also removed for violating the site’s rules on hate speech.
In a statement to the Daily Dot, a YouTube spokesperson confirmed that the channel was terminated after receiving three strikes for hate speech within a 90-day period.
