YouTube have finally given a response to their site-wide pedophile problem, which was uncovered by YouTuber ‘MattsWhatItIs’ in a chilling video on February 17.

While YouTube has suffered from dangerous and pedophilic content for some time, the site has since given a decisive response to this recent exposure of apparent predatory culture across the platform.

YouTube addressed the issue in reply to YouTuber Philip DeFranco’s video on the subject, where they claimed that they have terminated over 400 problematic channels – and even reported certain commenters to the authorities.

Philip DeFranco, TwitterYouTube’s response to their site-wide pedophile issue claimed that they have terminated over 400 channels – and even reported commenters to the authorities.

“In the last 48 hours… we’ve disabled comments on on tens of millions of videos,” YouTube stated. “We’ve also terminated over 400 channels for the comments they’ve left on videos, and reported illegal comments to law enforcement.”

YouTuber Matt ‘MattsWhatItIs’ Watson uncovered the issue during a video in mid February, where he noted that he was able to find suggestive videos of young girls within five clicks on the site.

That’s not all; Watson also found himself in what he called a ‘wormhole’ of problematic content, which featured a plethora of disturbing comments targeting underage girls featured in the videos.

Since Wattson’s video went live, a number of notable companies have halted their ads on the platform altogether, after being made aware that their ads were being featured on such videos.

Such companies include the likes of Swedish furniture company IKEA, spell-checking service Grammarly, and even Fortnite developers Epic Games, among others.

Wattson’s video has garnered over two million views as of February 21.


Hasan calls out ‘doppelganger’ Spanish Twitch streamer after hilarious rant

Hasan jokingly called out a Spanish Twitch streamer named IlloJuan who made a hilarious rant after his fans told him they looked similar.

Hasan Piker, better known as HasanAbi, has met his match. Not in terms of political commentary, but rather, his appearance. It happened after the fanbase of a Spanish streamer named IlloJuan described the two of them as doppelgangers.

IlloJuan reacted hilariously to the comparison live on stream. Somebody captured a video of it, and it went viral. Eventually, it found its way to Hasan, who watched it live on his stream.

Hasan streams games, but his priority is to keep viewers updated on major political events.

“This guy? This guy me?” said IlloJuan. He pointed to the picture of Hasan. Then, he pointed to himself and flexed his biceps. “I am stronger.” But he didn’t look too convinced about his claim, and neither did Hasan.

“Hey! Hey! Listen,” said Hasan, while jokingly cracking his knuckles. “It’s on-site, mother f**ker.” He sat back and listened to the rest of IlloJuan’s rant.

“No, I mean, with glasses, maybe,” said IlloJuan. “But no, this guy is very strong. He kills me with one punch. Dangerous guy, this guy. What does this guy stream? He seems like he streams Team Fight Tactics.”

“What?” said Hasan, in disbelief. It seems like he thought that was the last game he’d be associated with. His viewers were in stitches, and so was he. They spammed the chat with laughter.

Fortunately, somebody told IlloJuan what he actually streams.  “Politics? He streams politics?” he said. “Ah, he speaks about politics, oh okay. Well, yes, with glasses, yes, he’s a smart guy.”

Hassan burst out laughing and stopped the video. He couldn’t get over the fact IlloJuan thought he streamed Team Fight Tactics. “Mother f**ker said Team Fight Tactics, bro. What?” he said.

“I think English [speakers] and Spanish speakers are [coming together on Twitch]. A lot of Spanish streamers are talking about English speaking streamers, too. What’s going on? I mean, listen, I’ve got a big Latina community in my audience too, so.”

Hilarious rants and reactions aside, it seems like Hasan could be on to something here. The two communities have overlapped quite a bit in recent weeks. For example, TheGrefg broke his own viewership record and became a household name among English speakers.

Hasan and his reaction to IlloJuan is another example. Who knows, maybe the two of them will collaborate in a doppelganger steam at some point. Perhaps it’s something their viewers would love to see.
