We’ve been saying that YouTube has shadow banned the documentary Out Of Shadows for a while now, but we finally have proof that it’s the case.
I’ve made it very clear that I don’t agree with everything in the Out Of Shadows documentary.
That said, I do not believe that it should be silenced.
First off, I am a firm believer in freedom of speech.
You should be free to say whatever you want unless you are promoting violence or hate speech.
Secondly, there’s a lot in Out Of Shadows that I do actually think is very interesting and important to know about.
It covers a lot of what goes on in Hollywood – the way many people in powers of position pray upon young people and aspiring actors.
This is a huge problem in Hollywood and something that needs to be brought to light.
In this respect, I do think Out Of Shadows has a very important message that needs to be heard.
YouTube has shadow banned Out Of Shadows
I wrote an article last week about how it was very difficult to find the original documentary on YouTube.
If you search for it, the first hit that comes up is the documentary.
However, it’s a video that’s been re-uploaded to a different YouTube channel.
You can check out Eric Lopez‘s video on YouTube for proof that YouTube has ‘shadow banned’ the original Out Of Shadows documentary.
He screen recorded himself trying to find the documentary via YouTube’s search engine.
Eric had to do a lot of scrolling until he finally found it.
