YouTube Censors Jordan Peterson For “Hate Speech”

Jul 10, 2023 | Political News

Dr. Jordan Peterson, the ex-University of Toronto psychology professor who gained fame for his vigorous defense of free speech, has been subjected to what is perceived as a systemic censorship effort by YouTube. A popular figure in media circles, Peterson’s prolific online presence took a hit when the video-sharing platform decided to censor his account, a move the professor lamented on social media.

On Wednesday, the professor shared on Twitter a copy of the email he received from YouTube justifying the censorship. YouTube’s response to Peterson’s appeal against the decision, which it labeled as a part of their efforts to maintain a “safe place for all,” has been met with fierce opposition by the professor.
