It Gets Better: Apple Employees
For more than eight hours, the Apple employees’ “It Gets Better” video was banned from YouTube for a terms of service violation claim of “depicting harmful activities.” The video, created for Dan Savage’s “It Gets Better” Project, featuring Apple employees discussing growing up gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, and coming out and living openly, and “better” as adults, was removed from YouTube sometime Friday evening or early Saturday morning, and restored hours later.
MacObserver first reported the video had been “pulled,” in an article dated Saturday at 2:16 AM. A reader comment at 10:12 AM noted the video had been restored.
It has been suggested that in retaliation for Apple’s banning of two anti-gay Apple iOS (iPhone and iPad) apps that supporters of the apps got together and staged a protest by way of reporting the video to YouTube. It is not known how many reports activate an automatic deletion.
YouTube has not yet stated why the video was removed or restored.
You can view the video again, here, for it was never removed from my Blog. Thanks.
