YouTube attributes ’error’ for censoring anti-China phrases

Following criticism, YouTube has denied having censored comments critical of the Chinese government. Comments mentioning the phrase ’communist bandit’ and ’wumao’ which describes the Chinese Communist Party’s ’50 Cent Army’, were removed from the comment section within seconds of posting. A spokesperson said the comment deletion ’appears to be an error’ and an investigation was ongoing.

There is some irony when someone uses Twitter to point out censorship on YouTube. Usually seems to be the other way around.

Ok, so it’s an error is it? Right, now undo the error and let people post sh*t about China and the CCP and perhaps them we will believe you.

These "errors" always seem to be going one way don't they? Get real YouTube : you *cannot* have done this by error. Forgetting the letter "E" would be more likely.

Error? "Oops, we got caught. Our bad." It's not like we didn't know they're willing to bend to Communists. It's okay to sell our your country as long as you're making money!
