YouTube takes down less than half hate content that gets reported, according to a shocking new report by a think tank.
The material that does get taken down – which includes Islamist extremist postings – is left for almost two weeks before being removed, researchers found.
One of the videos that YouTube refused to remove included a video of a man filmed slapping a Muslim teenager with bacon and calling him ‘ISIS scum’.
The report is the latest of many to expose inappropriate content being posted and promoted on the Google-owned site.
