YouTube places restrictions on UK activist Tommy Robinson

YouTube on Tuesday placed restrictions on far-right anti-Muslim British activist Tommy Robinson’s account, but stopped short of banning him from the platform.

A YouTube spokesperson said the platform will no longer recommend any of Robinson’s videos to users, and his videos will no longer include a comments section or likes.

“After consulting with third party experts, we are applying a tougher treatment to Tommy Robinson’s channel in keeping with our policies on borderline content,” the spokesperson said.
