YouTube slapped an “offensive content” label on a pro-recall Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) video. On Thursday, the 14 minute video was marked with a label, showing the content was age-restricted and only available on YouTube.
The video has included criticism of Newsom’s implementation of public health measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the hypocritical mask-free visit to a California restaurant last November as well as a litany of other reasons for his ouster.
Reporter: “Do you feel like your actions and decisions of governor would rise to a level where a recall is a fair response from the voters?”
Newsom: “No, not at all.”
Incredible. Two pop up warnings from YouTube to stop people from seeing this video about Gavin Newsom.

YouTube’s labelling comes as many pro-Newsom ads have continued to run unedited. California’s gubernatorial recall election is set for September 14.
