Conservative Comedian Steven Crowder Under Investigation by YouTube

Conservative comedian Steven Crowder has found himself under investigation by YouTube after accusations of racism and homophobia surfaced over the weekend from Vox host Carlos Maza, who hosts the media literacy series “Strikethrough.”

“So, I have pretty thick skin when it comes to online harassment, but something has been really bothering me,” he tweeted on Friday, followed by a long string of tweets.



“Since I started working at Vox, Steven Crowder has been making video after video ‘debunking; Strikethrough. Every single video has included repeated, overt attacks on my sexual orientation and ethnicity. Here's a sample.”

Crowder has addressed the attacks on his personal Twitter account.


On May 31, he tweeted a video with the caption “Vox is trying to ban my channel.” The tweet was followed by several tweets and retweets of similar content. Crowder retweeted prominent gay conservative Dave Rubin’s tweet “Same Vox ‘journalist’ who lobbied @PeteButtigieg to not do my show....”

The tech giant YouTube has responded to Maza’s request by tweeting to him “Thanks so much for outlining all of this–we’re looking into it further. Sending you a DM now.”
