YouTuber Shirrako has been banned from the platform for his viral video in which he punches a feminist in the face and runs away in the popular video game Red Dead Redemption 2.
YouTube banned the user who created the viral video “Red Dead Redemption 2 – Beating Up Annoying Feminist” claiming it advocated violence, in spite of allowing other game play videos from the popular video game, which requires the player to commit bank robberies, train robberies, massive shooting sprees, theft, and kidnapping in the course of playing the game, to remain on the platform.

The game offers a historically inspired view of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, typically in the form of women asking the player to express support and donate money while protesting for their rights in various locations throughout the game.
In the video, the YouTuber is seen walking around the environment when a woman’s voice is heard advocating extending the vote to women. The player speaks to the female NPC, or non-playable character, delivering a scripted sarcastic remark about the futility of voting. Then, the YouTuber turns to the feminist and punches her in the face before running away from the scene.
After Shirrako’s initial video, he released several more, including one where he fed the feminist to an alligator, and another where he fed her to pigs.
As the video began to go viral on YouTube as well as Facebook and Twitter, leftist websites began to take notice. Yesterday Vice News’s Motherboard wrote a scathing condemnation of the video and those who enjoyed it. Then, The Guardian followed suit, claiming some users were concerned the video advocated violence in its article.
The following day, Shirrako’s channel and the YouTube video were both banned.
Shirrako took to Twitter to express his frustration with the ban, writing “Spend the entire games [sic] murdering men and no one cares, punch a woman and you get banned,” he concluded, “Are you out of your mind @YouTube?”
YouTube closed by channel because I killed a female NPC in #RDR2
They said It promoted violence.

YouTube has been under fire in recent months for what conservatives consider censorship. Alex Jones’ channel was famously taken down three months ago, then the platform threatened to remove the popular channel of philosopher Stefan Molyneux. Most recently, YouTube pulled and blocked Right Side Broadcasting’s live streams of several last minute rallies held by President Donald Trump in the run up to the 2018 midterm elections.
Update: After an intense backlash, YouTube restored Shirrako’s channel.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
