YouTube Investigating Right-Wing Pundit Steven Crowder for Harassing Gay Journalist

YouTube is finally investigating right-wing commentator Steven Crowder the host of Louder with Crowder, after a series of videos containing homophobic and racist comments towards a gay journalist.

Carlos Maza brought the harassment to light on a Twitter this week Maza hosts Strikethrough for Vox, a show about media, politics and technology.

Crowder has made ‘rebuttal’ videos over Maza’s Vox segments that have caused a flood of homophobic and racist abuse on Instagram and Twitter. Crowder’s fans have doxxed him multiple times, leaving his phone unusable with the amount of abuse.

This is a direct violation of YouTube’s community guidelines. Content ‘deliberately posted in order to humiliate someone, make hurtful and negative personal comments/videos about another person, or incite others to harass or threaten individuals on or off YouTube’ is banned.

Crowder is well know for making anti-gay videos and also currently sells and advertises t-shirt that say ‘Socialism is for f*gs’ on his YouTube channel. While he with a “straight” face claims the word stands for ‘figs’, it features an image of Che Guevara with a limp wrist – an offensive gay stereotype.

Back2Stonewall was unable to contact Crowder via Twitter for comment.
