YouTube takes positive step to stop ads from appearing on hate speech videos

YouTube has responded to complaints about ads running in channels featuring hate speech and offensive content.  Many of the places the ads were running were fairly new channels, or creators trying to build an audience with outrageous statements designed specifically to get attention.

That won’t work anymore for newer accounts.

Until channels on YouTube reach an audience of 10,000 views, ads won’t be served against them.  Once they hit the 10K mark, they can apply to be part of Google’s YouTube Partner Program.  Then YouTube will review the channel to make sure it fits its community guidelines and advertiser policies.

While it won’t stop people that have already gained 10,000 views from creating offensive content, it’s a good start.
