UPDATE: Anita Sarkeesian’s YouTube Gets Nuked, Then Restored After Cry For Help

Anita Sarkeesian

I The breaking news I just saw this Friday evening should bring a smile to even the most hardened reader’s face. It seems Anita Sarkeesian’s YouTube channel has been suspended for “repeated or severe violations of our Terms of Service.” Obviously, this could be temporary, in which case I’ll have to settle for a short-lived laugh. But rumors are circulating that the takedown is the result of repeated copyright infringements, specifically the theft of footage from various Let’s Plays. Only time will tell, of course. I’ll keep this post updated all throughout the night.

2016-05-06_21-55-26

As of yet, there’s been no reaction from the official Feminist Frequency Twitter. Someone also speculated privately to me that perhaps this could be retaliation from Jonathan McIntosh after he was recently dropped like a hot rock by Anita and her pals. Of course, that is pure conjecture at this point. As I learn more, you will learn more.

As for now, have a beer and chuckle in honor of Anita getting rekt (even if it doesn’t last…but I’m optimistic that it might).

 

UPDATE: Anita is begging for help…

(archive)

 

UPDATE II: The channel has been restored. No explanation as of yet.

It’s funny how Anita can get her shit back up in a matter of minutes, but others have to wait days if not weeks for a proper review. And for all we know, she was actually in violation. Sarkeesian has been accused of multiple content thefts in the past, as I noted above. I guess when you have the right kind of politics you can get away with almost anything.

        Can’t forget this gem!

  • Julie Shaw

    Ayyy lmao…

  • Richard Onley

    I halfway think this could be a case of corroborating cahoots, with Sarky taking one for the team, just so that Facebook can later say “See? We banned her, too!”

    • Or a publicity stunt to reframe her as a “victim” of online “harassment”.

      Remember, she’s been mainly ignored for months now since becoming irrelevant, besides the occasional jeer directed at her general direction.

      Manufactured outrage always works to the perpetually gullible.

  • Jaker_K17

    This is fucking amazing news. So fucking glad to see that ship finally sink. Let’s hope it stays gone. Games industry is fucked enough without her lies and slander making it worse.

  • Tarzan

    HAHAHAHAHA. Hopefully she’s able to get a new channel to upload shit on, don’t wanna lose a good lolcow

    • She will, complete with a “WATCH THE CHANNEL MISOGYNIST TROLLS DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE” byline too, for added spin doctoring.

    • Ebola-Chan✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      It’d just get taken down for violating the terms of service. Namely, ban evasion.

  • Gigaknight

    “The breaking news I just saw this Friday evening should bring a smile to even the most hardened reader’s face.”

    Guilty.

    • If only it could have lasted lol. I figured she would find a way to get it back, but what I didn’t figure was she could do it so quickly. Must be nice to have that sort of privilege.

  • SmokeyBehr

    My Schadenboner is so massive right now. I need to loosen my pants and let it free…

  • Sarah Roberts

    REALLY hope it was Sony! XD I don’t think anyone in GG had that kind of pull, or else it would have happened SEVERAL times by now.

  • God truly exists.

    • Tam_ Revenire

      no, she didn’t do this. It was gamergate.

      • Ha, pardon. On a second thought, Cthulhu won’t interact with us.

  • SomeGeek

    What do you mean McIntosh was “dropped”?!

    • Maintenance Renegade

      She jettisoned his ass when she re-branded the channel with her weird purple lines shit and both of them were diminished in the process. Nobody pays attention to him anymore when he doesn’t have her to speak through and she has to try and make it without his Goebbels speeches and connections.

      • SomeGeek

        Sweeeet!
        I wish I could have seen that faggot’s expression!

    Just another blatant publicity stunt.

    I’ll sit up and take notice the day this fraudster & the rest of the con artists are there are locked up behind bars for a long, long time.

  • Tam_ Revenire

    i hope you gators are happy, you are depriving a strong woman of her voice. We know it is you who did this, no one else would have harmed someone as intelligent as her because you know that she is the one that will bring you down.

        • Charles Lam

          ah got it.

      • Katie Katie

        It says more about you than it does about feminists.

    • jlenoconel

      Yes, let’s see how her opinion of Uncharted 4 has no effect on its sales. The same goes for any game she reviews. She even slammed Rise of the Tomb Raider lol, and that’s one of very few games that sells well and has female lead protagonist. Yes, she’s doing absolutely amazing things for women in gaming, isn’t she.

      • Tam_ Revenire

        We need more PoC and Transexual and differently abled aliens in video games as well, one token CISgendered woman does not make up for the injustice of not having equal representation in the Citadel.

  • MGTOW dum moriar

    The party’s over for Sarkeesian and now begins the hangover.

  • derram

    Funny how it only takes her half an hour to clear this shit up, most people get fucked for weeks.

  • Italy GG

    Well they folded very quickly. Give a pass to feminists breaking the rules to not be called sexists

  • Her brief suspension made my 7 troll cocks hard & moist…

    But if this is not the last time it happens…

    • arrow2010

      A cock should be hard, but not moist.

      • Your cock expertise clearly does not cover the 7-troll cock spectrum arrow2010.
        I’ll sodomize you any day.
        I’ll bring the sand.
        You do the prolapsing.

      • Katie Katie

        You’ve never had precum? Both men and women can get both hard and wet. Men can get precum, women can get engorged clits. It’s basic biology.

  • Reaper of Salt

    A short lived victory. I knew it was to good to be true.

  • Phryj

    So, even though countless other YouTubers have been hung out to dry while attempting to appeal false copyright flags, Sarky’s actual infringement ends up getting a pass.

    • Maintenance Renegade

      Seriously fuck those San Francisco back channels.

      • Michael Meier

        No back channel via Twitter….

        • Maintenance Renegade

          Pop quiz, where is google located?

          • Michael Meier

            On the Internet 24/7

    • scemar

      That’s why all their supposed war on “harassment” is such an obvious bunch of lies.

      They just want the tools so they can censor people.
      They will only use it to protect the ones they have anointed.
      They will only use them to attack the ones that are not bowing to their cultlike behaviour.

    • Ali Radicali

      And yet she and her UN-faring ilk will turn around and complain that they & their complaints are not taken seriously, because wymyn.

      I swear to god if their doublethink gets any worse it’ll become fullblown schizophrenia….

    • Lost Question

      sarky as a “SJW” and a “feminist” with some manner of “fame” is automatically granted a bunch of connections and favor from feminists and SJW’s just because they are supposedly part of the same cult and unfortunately that cult is great at infecting, infesting, and corrupting stuff.

    • jlenoconel

      Just goes to show the climate of fear surrounding her, that if she’s not listened to folks will get accused of being sexists etc.

  • Javier Vega

    She violated the Review Embargo the released the video of Uncharted 4.

  • Andulvar

    At least the bitch has proven one thing today. She’s all about herself and not equality. If she was about equality she should have waited like every other Youtuber.

  • BasedLink

    Something tells me this is just another situation like I Hate Everything’s.

  • Silence Dogood

    Keep just spamming those content ID claim people – is she really going to take the LEGAL OWNERS of the Let’s Play content to court and claim she is in the right because she has a vagina? Really.

  • MONAD

    She was also planning on violating the NDA Media Embargo for Uncharted 4 two days before it lifted. Simply for clicks. That alone was enough to get her shit pulled more than likely.

  • Nikola Reljic

    😀

  • Michael Meier

    Apparently FemFreq got an exclusive review copy of uncharted 4, released a review on 5th of March right after Embargo was lifted for reviews and used it to shit all over the game with exclusive footage……..

    So it is possible sony did a manual take down request to nuke their entire shit before the game gets released on 10th.

    • Jaker_K17

      Are you fucking kidding? They should have known better than to give a review copy to someone who shits on everything ever because nothing fits her insane world views.

      • Michael Meier

        Together with the 30 minute timeframe it took and the method via twitter makes this shit likely unique in human history….

      • Mr0303

        Neil Druckmann is a big fan of hers so it makes sense. As a reminder to everyone:

        • jlenoconel

          Maybe he will cut ties with her dumb ass when he realizes she’s bringing negative attention to his franchise.

          • Mr0303

            Hopefully you’re right, but he may be too far gone. We’ll see how much agenda there is in Uncharted 4.

    • Mr0303

      Hopefully this will teach Sony to be more careful around hateful ideologues, but I’m afraid Naughty Dog has drank too much of the poison Kool Aid.

    • jlenoconel

      I don’t get why this dumb bitch has to shit on everything she touches. I’d love to be given a review copy of a game like Uncharted 4 and I would be as positive as possible about it. Seeing as its probably gonna be the top selling game for the next few months, Naughty Dog want to avoid any bad publicity. Perhaps folks need to stop giving her review copies of games.

  • Dieter Himmel

    Anita is such a hypocrite. What a false person. How can any sane parent send their son to such an university like hers?

  • scemar

    how privileged of them to have such a preferential treatment

  • utera

    Youtube couldn’t help but to prove their system was broken twice over…first with the false flag, then with the special rules for special people treatment.

  • Botiemaster

    Anita Sarkeesian is what happens when you are the first to use GamerGate as a stepping stone to mass media coverage that shoehorns you into everything it can think of thereby resulting in a person who has a minimal following to be boosted into the C celebrity spot light. It doesn’t matter that her YT following is a mere 211k subs with laughable video view counts, what matters is that she has now slithered her way into the backdoor of certain companies that allow her the privilege of getting out of jail free cards when more powerful people(measured in followings)would be dumped to the way side for something as simple as abused DMCA claims. But leave it to the kliq to get Anita out in record time. This shaddy business is not restricted to twitter, boys and girls. We are way past the GamerGate scandal. It’s growing into a mass media/social scandal. Maybe it’s a scandal that’s always existed. Maybe it’s just how the world turns. But it’s shady nonetheless.

    And it’s our fault for letting them take such control of our lives, and by “our” I mean the grand majority of human beings who are not SJWs, some of which thought it was a good idea to cave into their whining because, “oh, well it certainly won’t harm our current customers and it’ll gain new SJW customers, so why not?” Well, this is why not. Not only are they getting FAIR and EQUAL treatment by being recognized by society, now they are getting special treatment. AHHH and now we can come to the conclusion of what they were after all along. Funny how their screams of fairness and equality go out the window when the shoe is on the other foot.

  • Cleth

    That’s bad news that her channel came back up.

  • Yuuta

    Quite funny she didn’t used GG to get more attention

  • Rick

    I’m sad to see it’s back up…Somebody needs to scrape slime like her into the garbage where she belongs…except trash was actually useful before it became trash…she just has always been trash with no usefulness

  • Martin Scoff

    This site never displays properly in Firefox for me (big yellow boxes as opposed to pictures, but never the main image). Fine in Chrome.

  • Dranka Dranka

    Every time I see that picture of Anita I want to cry a little. Even with that flannel shirt and minimal makeup she couldnt quite suppress her inner Armenian club chola and it came through with the hoop earrings. This ain’t the real you Anita!

  • Dominic Blais

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

  • The sheer temerity, audacity and gall of YouTube to even think about and take down a feminist’s channel temporarily in the first place.

    Misogyny! Sexism! Woman-hater! Chauvinists! 1-in-5! Wage gap!

  • arrow2010

    FeministFucktoy should be banned for inciting hatred of all men which should be against Youtube TOS.

  • Iso

    It’s one rule for the Feminazi’s who go out and cry about the injustice of getting banned whilst normal people get their accounts locked for ages and have no immediate restoration.

  • Ali Radicali

    32 minutes? Give me a fucking break.

    Youtube isn’t even trying to hide their double standards here. I’ve heard from more than one smaller anti-SJW channel that it takes weeks if not months to get YT to repeal any sort of punitive measures, but of course Neenee and her galpals get special treatment.

    Because women online have it so fucking awful.

  • Kellen Joel

    Well, you know, she’s like the Hillary Clinton of #GamerGate, she can get away with just about anything

  • My channel got taken away and I tried to appeal and nothing still to this day… guess that’s how it works

  • Omnia Incendent

    Everything is sexist and you have to point it all out
    Then I point out Feminism’s Pussy Pass.

  • jlenoconel

    She leaked spoilers about Uncharted 4, the [email protected]**ng idiot she is. People need to stop asking her to promote her game. Wasn’t actually her reviewing it anyway, but Carolyn Petit (because Anita isn’t actually a gamer).

  • Stephanie

    God we need a youtube replacement so badly.

  • Frank and beans

    Her vids do not get over 40k views now and her twitter is dead. Seems she has finally been forgotten.

    Funny thing is she still has no achieved anything.

    • GodBowser

      Really?

      Are more people starting to see that she’s full of shit or is she not getting much attention because she’s hanging around with the wrong people

      • Frank and beans

        She failed hard and achieved nothing n the gaming world so she moved on.
