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.
HOAX: Police Report Alleges Texas A&M Student Faked Racist Letters on Car Dashboard
The suspected hoaxster stopped cooperating with police after being confronted with video evidence.
Texas A&M University police are describing an incident in which a black student claimed racist and anti-Black Lives Matter messages were left on his car windshield as a hate hoax, after investigating Isaih Martin’s claims that he was targeted with the messages.
Martin had claimed that three pieces of paper stating “All Lives Matter,” “You Don’t Belong Here,” and a racial slur were placed on his car windshield when his vehicle was placed in the parking lot of an on-campus apartments. His claims elicited an outpouring of sympathy from the university community, with Texas A&M’s official Twitter even consoling the supposed victim without waiting for any verification of his dubious claims.
However, shortly after police began investigating the incident, Martin’s claim began to unravel. The Texas A&M University police obtained footage from a pool camera revealing that while a few individuals walked within several yards of his car, none of them stopped at the vehicle long enough to place the three piece of paper under the windshield wipers. Instead, Martin was the only individual who interacted with the vehicle long enough to place the notes.
“Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors. Martin is seen toward the front of his vehicle. A brief white speck is seen from about mid-torso of Martin moving toward his vehicle. Another white speck is seen near his chest area. Martin is then seen stepping back and onto the sidewalk in front of his vehicle, most likely taking photos and videos. He then approaches his vehicle again on the passenger side and remains there for a few moments. He is then seen walking around the front of his vehicle. Martin then enters the driver`s door and drives away a few moments later. The total time spent at his vehicle is 1 minute, 15 seconds.”
An investigating officer accused Martin of placing the notes on his windshield himself, confronting him with video evidence revealing that he was the only person close enough to his vehicle to place them there. Martin stopped cooperating with police on the investigation shortly after an officer confronted him on the video footage. The university senior won’t be charged because he didn’t file a formal police report on the matter.
Martin made his Twitter account private in the hours after the police report became public knowledge.
