This is total bullshit! You don’t have to agree with the guy but banning Hunter Avallone is censorship pure and simple. The channel had zero strikes. When will we stop trying to silence opinions we disagree with? pic.twitter.com/QeLZs0MUWp

YouTube just deleted Hunter Avallone’s entire channel for making fun of SJWs. Says he didn’t even have any strikes, but they completely banned him. He’s a conservative millennial who had over 600,000 subscribers, now censored for WrongThink.

Avallone would update his fans that his channel is back. He would write, “Messy hair and tired face but my channel is back. Thank goodness. Thank you SO much to everyone who rallied around me and showed your support.”
What do you make of YouTube’s decision to suspend Hunter Avallone’s account and the subsequent reversal of that decision?
