Who decides to put a LGBTI commercial before a Cocomelon toddler video? 0 Recommended Answers 1 Reply 4 Upvotes

I am one of undoubtly many millions of parents who allows his children to enjoy Cocomelon content on YouTube, 1 or 2 times 30 minutes per day. Their content is excellent. We appreciate the neutral, children oriented approach, where fun, politeness and honesty seem to be important values. We are happy to accept the commercials surrounding their YT videos as indirect payment.

However, this morning, before one of their 30 minutes videos, YouTube played a lgbti promoting commercial, including (samesex) couples in suggestive poses. I do not know what organization the commercial was from, because I turned off the video hastily.

We really enjoy YouTube's content, but we will of course not allow our children being exposed to any content or commercial that pushes a political idea or normalises controversial adult themes. Who is responsible for deciding about which commercial is played before or after these videos?

Use the YouTube Kids app instead. Children under 13 are not permitted to use YouTube. The ads have been approved for audiences 13 and above.

I suspect no one "chose" the ad as a match to a specific video, it was just picked out of an array of available ads.
