The Wall Street Journal was doing this with PewDiePie a few months ago:
“After Robert Bowers stormed the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27, far-right personality Ethan Ralph launched a live stream on YouTube to discuss the shooting that claimed 11 lives. Soon, some viewers began paying to have their comments featured on the live chat scrolling alongside the streaming video, through a feature YouTube launched last year called Super Chat.
During the live stream, which YouTube said Mr. Ralph has since deleted, one user paid two British pounds to write, “How u get a Jewish girls number? Roll up her sleeve.” Another viewer paid $5 and wrote: “If you want to know if the Synagogue shooting was a false flag then check out the lucky Larry life insurance policies on those dead Jews.”
YouTube said late on Friday that it had permanently removed Mr. Ralph’s channel, “Ralph Retort,” from its platform for policy violations and for going against its terms of service. …”
Blah blah blah … how can we exploit this to censor the internet?
Everywhere you look it the same story: floundering legacy media outlets that hide behind paywalls whining and complaining about entrepreneurs using social media platforms to find fans who want to bypass and tune out their garbage. In the name of “democracy,” they have anointed themselves the guardians of the internet and reserve the right to censor anyone they disagree with.

YouTube just revoked my live streaming & striked my channel for a violation they won't even specify.
I get hundreds of times more views on my tiny BitChute channel than on my 193k subs YouTube channel, proportionally.
I am just about ready to leave YouTube for good.

Ethan Ralph is “hate speech.” Alex Jones is “hate speech.” Sarah Jeong isn’t hate speech. Don Lemon isn’t hate speech. If you disagree, you’re “hate speech.”
Why hasn’t anything been done about the issue? Why isn’t Congress standing up for free speech? The answer is because of some convoluted True Cons ideological bullshit about the free market. Monopolies abusing their market power to engage in censorship is okay unless it is the GUBMINT doing it. Jared Holt is right that FOX News and The Wall Street Journal are both owned by the Murdochs.
Note: This is one of the reasons why there isn’t any Red Wave. I think there are too many people who are sick and tired of the lack of a response to this bullshit.
