LGBTQ creators are suing YouTube for content discrimination

LGBTQ creators are suing YouTube for content discrimination. The group of seven creators are suing YouTube for allegedly discriminating against their LGBTQ-focused videos by suppressing recommendations and making it hard to earn ad revenue. The suit alleges both the machine language-driven algorithms and human content moderators unfairly target channels that include the words “gay,” “bisexual,” or “transgender” in their title. YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki responded that YouTube does “not automatically demonetize LGBTQ content.” The Verge
