YouTube has moved to prevent British comedian and internet commentator Russell Brand from making money through his YouTube channel this week, following allegations from multiple women that he sexually assaulted them more than a decade ago.
The online video platform announced Tuesday that it had suspended monetization for Brand’s channel, citing the creator’s “off-platform behavior” violating YouTube policy.
The site’s decision prevents Brand from earning revenue that comes from advertisements embedded in YouTube videos, the main way content creators make money on the platform.
