YouTube has suspended Russell Brand‘s channels from monetizing through ads, citing a violation of its “creator responsibility policy.”
This action comes as the platform seeks to safeguard its users.
Meanwhile, the BBC has removed certain programs featuring the comedian from its streaming services.
These moves follow allegations of rape and sexual assault against Brand spanning from 2006 to 2013, which he denies, asserting that his relationships were consensual.
YouTube clarified that the suspension of ad revenue applies to all channels potentially owned or operated by the 48-year-old.
Brand made a significant revenue from YouTube.
Despite the setback, Brand continues to be active on various platforms, including Instagram, X, and Rumble.
