Casey Neistat: YouTube Doesn’t Do Enough To Take Care Of Creator Community

One of YouTube’s biggest stars, Casey Neistat, posted a sit-down vlog today in which he took the video giant to task for not doing enough to support its creator community.

The admonishment arrives after Neistat said that a second video on his channel — this time an innocous travel vlog featuring an interview with the president of Indonesia — had been unfairly demonetized. (YouTube subsequently reversed the decision). Earlier this month, YouTube earned the ire of top creators when a separate video by Neistat announcing a fundraiser in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting had also been demonetized — which YouTube said was because it does not vend ads against any videos about tragedies, regardless of their intent.

In Neistat’s latest retort, titled Demonetized Demonetized Demonetized, he says point blank: “I genuinely don’t feel YouTube does enough to take care of and look after their community.” While he acknowledges that he is grateful to the platform, hopes it continues to succeed, and believes that the company’s leadership executives — many of whom he knows personally — believe in their hearts that they are doing the best that they can, “I just don’t agree with them,” he says.

Check out Neistat’s thoughts in full below:
