YouTuber Stephen Deleonardis, better known as SteveWillDoIt, revealed that YouTube deleted his main channel in order to promote his second channel, where he used to broadcast gambling videos.
On August 2, 2022, the YouTuber reported that he had been banned from the platform. He captioned a screenshot on Instagram, “Youtube just permanently canceled my channel.”
On August 30, SteveWillDoIt stated the reason for his channel’s termination on Bradley Martyn’s Raw Talk.
Why was SteveWillDoIt banned from YouTube?
Deleonardis said that the removal of his primary channel was
influenced by his second channel, where he broadcasted gambling-related films.
In a recent appearance on Bradley Martyn’s Raw Talk, he claimed that YouTube
did not provide him with any warnings before permanently canceling his account.
“I have a second channel where I posted about my trip to Mexico and gaming footage, which you are authorized to do.”
He went on to say that you could film yourself playing [gambling site] and publish it on YouTube,
and you’d be able to tell what website you’re playing on vocally,
but if the [gambling site] is on video, YouTube will deactivate your account.
His second channel was terminated because the clip exposed the domain name completely and was not blurred.
This worried him about his main channel, so he created a separate one specifically to communicate with a YouTube representative.
The YouTube representative assured him that it should be fine
provided the primary channel’s Google AdSense account is not linked to the second channel.
“My main mistake was that I advertised my second channel on my primary channel,” he explained.
SteveWillDoIt also took to Instagram to query YouTube about the deactivation of his channel.
He asked YouTube to explain why displaying a domain name on his second
account was wrong, and he believed it was merely a pretext to remove his channel.
SteveWillDoIt stated that his channel had no strikes.
Deleonardis claimed on August 18 that he had zero community guideline
strikes before his YouTube channel was suspended.
While most accounts are terminated after three strikes unless something terrible happens,
the YouTuber claimed that his channel had no past violations.
“My primary channel got deleted when I had 0 strikes and my main purpose is to aid people in need,” he tweeted.
Fans back SteveWillDoIt, with one claiming,
“He is directly transforming lives and bringing hope to those who have almost given up on life.”
What is SteveWillDoIt going to do next?
“If it is not YouTube, are there other sites that you are exploring?” Martyn inquired of Deleonardis.
“Well, fortunately, YouTube has not said you can’t establish a channel,” he replied.
He also stated that he would be appearing in the knock boys videos.
However, we will have to wait to see what happens next because it is unknown
what Deleonardis would do now that his station has been suspended.
