Chelsea Manning says that Youtube removed ‘inappropriate’ mark from her campaign video


YouTube has lifted an age warning placed on Chelsea Manning’s election campaign video. The trans activist commuted by Barack Obama is hoping to take a seat in Maryland Senate. The video was labelled “inappropriate for some users” and age restricted. YouTube guidelines say it restricts videos if the content involves nudity, is sexually explicit, hateful, harmful or if it is violent or dangerous. Other rules include copyright and privacy, though it is unlikely the video would remain live if this were the issue. The reason why Manning’s video was banned remained unclear and after the media backlash the ban was removed. In the campaign video, released last Sunday, Manning says Americans should “stop expecting that our systems will fix themselves” and calls for citizens to “take the reigns of power”.
