YouTube Got Called Out By A School Shooting Protestor And It's Powerful AF

Is it time for YouTube to stop hosting NRA content?
This week, thousands of school students across America held protests and walked out of classes in response to call for gun reform in the wake of February's tragic Florida High School Shooting. High up on the list of targets for this current gun control movement are America's biggest gun lobbying group, the National Rifle Association, and the extensive list of companies who support them - YouTube included.
One protestor, a 14 year old student named Georgia, had a particularly powerful way of calling out YouTube and other companies that offer discounts to NRA members or host their content - putting their logos on a bullet-proof vest.

While YouTube don't offer any discounts or privileges to NRA members, the platform does host NRA content, including videos such as "The Truth Is That They Want To Ban All Guns," and "Gun Control Is People Control," both aimed at stifling the debate about gun control in the US.
