YouTube is restricting access to PragerU’s videos on the Ten Commandments, labeling them as mature content that’s “inappropriate” for “sensitive” audiences.
In a series of posts to Twitter on Tuesday, PragerU reported that hundreds of their videos, including many of those focused on explaining the Ten Commandments, were being restricted by YouTube. This limits viewers’ access to the videos and limits ad revenue going to PragerU.
“Our last count was conducted in April and at that time there were over 100 PragerU videos restricted — including over 50 of our 5-minute videos. There are now over 240 PragerU videos restricted including over 100 of our 5-minute videos,” tweeted PragerU.
“Among the newly restricted videos are more videos from our 10 Commandments series with Dennis Prager including: Do Not Misuse God’s Name … Do Not Steal … Do Not Covet. Why would YouTube restrict these videos?”
PragerU added a link to a petition demanding that YouTube remove the age restriction to the videos. As of Wednesday morning, over 643,000 people have signed it.
“There is no excuse for Google and YouTube censoring and restricting any PragerU videos, which are produced with the sole intent of educating people of all ages about America’s founding values,” they said.
“We need your help to tell YouTube that their restriction of our videos is wrong. Join the thousands of Americans who value the free exchange of ideas.”
