Who is doing this???!!

Bad news, friends. Some mysterious villain is attempting to cleanse everyone's favourite nightmare 'Johny Johny Yes Papa' from the internet.

The horrible, terrible, no good kids video, which features 'Johny' and his father debating the nature of human dishonesty, has rapidly become harder and harder to find online since it became a full-blown meme. We did a full breakdown of the video and why exactly the world has become so obsessed with it - you can see it here!

But now any instance of the video that appears on Twitter is being automatically removed en masse (remember that, next time Twitter claims they aren't able to remove something from the site).

Take a look at the Twitter video that started this whole phenomenon. It has been thoroughly Thanos'd:

The reason for the removal is stated as copyright violations, leading many to suspect that the culprits are BillionSurpriseToys, the utterly bizarre YouTube channel that produced Johny in the first place.

The good people at Mashable have compiled an extensive list of the all the tweets that have been mysteriously cleansed of their high quality sugar-and-lying-based content.

Who is really responsible? I think you know. I think we all know:
