Is pewdiepie even demonetized? I feel like he is one of those examples of a performer who can do anything without getting hurt.
My problem with the adpocalypse is that it makes no sense and is just stupid.
From what i remember, it started from an unconfirmed report that there was a coke ad on a terrorist recruitment video on youtube. This resulted in videos like political talk shows, news shows, random IRL performers and other silly things being destroyed. To be clear, their algorithm is not smart targeting highly offensive/illegal content, it is blanket targeting a lot of innocents that are significantly less controversial than even stuff you see on local channels.
At the same time, companies like coke are more than happy to buy ads during stuff that is truly not safe for kids/work such as mass shooting coverage, cable series with extreme nudity/violence or basically anything on fox news. They aren’t afraid to be associated with the content, they are afraid of negative coverage from “some random moron” making a stink about how there is a coke ad on hate speech out of millions of videos.
