Why Was Ludwig Banned From YouTube?

In a statement released on Twitter, Ludwig announced his YouTube channel had been banned from uploading to the platform due to a strike on his previous video.

The strike in question was regarding “child safety”, according to YouTube. Many have speculated on which video it may have been that caused the “child safety” strike, but no solid answer can be given on which video caused the ban.

Fans can still visit Ludwig’s YouTube channel and watch previously uploaded videos. Ludwig himself is no longer able to upload to his channel until the ban is lifted.

Ludwig discussed his ban during a live stream on Twitch, where he read the details of the ban directly from YouTube. Ludwig said that his “content was removed for violating community guidelines. [Ludwig] won’t be able to upload, post, or live stream”.

How Long Is The Ban?
