YouTube Cuts Off Fidesz Friendly PestiSrácok Again
Fidesz-friendly website PestiSrácok is organising a protest demonstration outside the local headquarters of Google on March 31, after the technology company deleted the website’s YouTube channel.

The channel, PsTV, launched last September, was deleted a few days ago. It reportedly had more than 54,000 subscribers.

Google said in a statement that the PsTV channel was shut down because it was an attempt to circumvent the ban on PestiSrácok, which was removed from YouTube in February, 2020 because of the violation of conditions related to children’s safety.

The website’s chief editor Gergely Huth denied the claim in an interview with Magyar Nemzet, and said it had become obvious to them from background information and explanations that Google actually objected to their videos concerning LGBTQ topics.
