YouTube demonetizes gun review channel for 'harmful content': Justin Opinion, a YouTube channel that had accumulated over 84,000 subscribers in the last 12 years, has now been deemed "harmful content" according to a video posted to the channel. The channel host explained in the video that the money previously earned from the videos covered around 40-50% of the costs associated with making his videos, and the demonetization came right after he invested in new video equipment. He also explained that he has done everything to keep his videos within YouTube's guidelines to the best of his knowledge, and he was not provided any further information about why his videos are now considered "harmful content" after 12 years. He also expressed that because he is a relatively small channel, he has no avenue to appeal the situation to YouTube, or even to speak with someone to better understand what he did wrong.
