Limited features for certain videos
Hate speech is not allowed on YouTube. We remove content promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes. YouTube also doesn’t allow content intended to praise, promote, or aid violent criminal organizations.
Content that doesn’t violate our policies, but is close to the removal line and could be offensive to some viewers, may have some features disabled. This may include the following. This is not a complete list.
- Inflammatory religious or supremacist content without a direct call to violence or to promote hatred
- Conspiracy theories ascribing evil, corrupt or malicious intent to individuals or groups based on certain attributes
- Videos denying that a well-documented violent event took place
Content will remain available on YouTube, but the watch page will no longer have comments, suggested videos, or likes, and will be placed behind a warning message. These videos are also not eligible for ads. Having features disabled will not add a strike to your channel.
If one of your videos has features disabled, we will send an email to notify you. You can appeal the decision directly from a link in the email or by following the appeals process.
