Do better, YouTube.

On June 3rd, Elijah called YouTube out after fans reported that anti-gay adverts were appearing on his channel. In response, YouTube told Elijah that he could fill out a form to stop the problematic adverts appearing - ignoring the fact that homophobia shouldn't really have a place on YouTube whatsoever, as it violates their policies against hateful content.

"Don't think I should have to fill out a form to have homophobic ads not run on my... channel," Elijah responded. "How about just not running homophobic ads?"

Not the best start to Pride month, Youtube.
