From Alexei Mostrous at the UK Times:

Havas, one of the “big six” agencies, suspended advertising for 240 clients including O2, EDF and the Royal Mail across Google’s websites, including YouTube. Revelations in The Times that antisemites and banned hate preachers were receiving payouts from YouTube commercials has already led to dozens of organisations pulling their advertising on the video platform, including the Cabinet Office, Sainsbury’s and The Guardian.More.
