Pokimane calls YouTube when her Will Smith slap video is reported by Oscars

Twitch star Pokimane is asking YouTube for help after the platform flagged her video as ‘inappropriate’ for advertisers in response to Will Smith’s viral Oscar slap.

The internet still can’t stop talking about the moment when Will Smith took the stage at the 94th Academy Awards to slap Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith.

The moment took social media by storm, sparking a slew of reactions from high-profile celebrities and fellow comedians like Joe Rogan and even Jim Carrey.

While slews of influencers have posted their take on the situation online — including full footage of the slap itself — Twitch streamer Imane “Pokimane” Anys has had some trouble sharing her thoughts on the matter.

Anys is asking YouTube for help over reported Will Smith Oscars slapping video

Anys uploaded her reaction to Monday’s slap to YouTube with no problem, but says her video has now been flagged as not ad-friendly.

The issue completely confuses them as other creators uploaded the slap to YouTube with ads enabled without any issues. Now she is asking the platform and other YouTubers for help.

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s biggest stars and the only woman in the top 20 most followed Twitch streamers.

“My video was flagged as not ad friendly, even though there are many videos with millions of views that address this topic with ads,” she wrote on Twitter. “Anyone have any idea why?”

Anys attached a screenshot of an email she received from YouTube, which said her video “is running limited or no ads due to content that was determined to be unsuitable for most advertisers.”

While most commenters theorize that the slap was deemed too “violent” for advertisers, others wonder if their video wasn’t specifically targeted by internet trolls – something that recently happened to steamer JustaMinx, which has been hit three times by TikTok was banned.

Fortunately, Pokimane’s video remains viewable. Anys said that Jada’s alopecia was a “s**ty thing to joke about,” but ultimately called the situation “confusing” as Smith initially seemed to laugh at Rock’s joke.

Will Smith has issued a public apology, and he is doing so is currently being studied by the Academy because of the hit.
