…I don’t intend to go down this disturbing rabbit hole. Kudos to this guy and his mental fortitude.

Default Advertisers Boycott YouTube After Pedophiles Swarm Comments on Videos of Children

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/20/t...edophiles.html

Quote:
Nestlé, Epic Games and other major brands said on Wednesday that they had stopped buying advertisements on YouTube after their ads appeared on children’s videos where pedophiles had infiltrated the comment sections.The companies acted after a YouTube user posted a video this week to point out this behavior.
I'm guessing the YouTube link in the OP is the same video referenced in the article (I haven't watched either one).

What the guy in the video does is search for videos of young girls being coerced into doing things like yoga (so people can note times when the girls are as “on display” as a clothed young girl can get).

The guy being talked about in the video by a different guy is the one searching for videos for that purpose? Because I really hope you didn't link to one of the guy's actual videos.

It's funny how sometimes something I had no interest in following will show up anyway when I'm not looking for it.

The individual in question, Matt Watson, seems to have some credibility issues. He claimed not to have had a Twitter account before all this came to light (he did, and it doesn't paint his personal crusade in a particularly good light - NSFW), and he also had/has a second YouTube channel, called Totally Uncreative (I'm not posting the link), where he comes pretty damn close to engaging in the very things he's railing against.

It's gotten my curiosity piqued enough to dig a little deeper (no pun intended), but I'm not terribly impressed with him thus far.

(*I expect he's the type to use the old "Can't you take a joke?" defense, but I'm not going to give him the attention he seems so desperately to want.)
