Welcome for YouTube’s belated Wiley ban

Board of Deputies Vice President Amanda Bowman has welcomed the belated decision of YouTube to terminate Wiley’s channels on YouTube, following continued antisemitic outbursts by the rapper.

Amanda said: “After Wiley’s antisemitic rants appeared on Twitter and Instagram, the Board of Deputies reached out not only to these platforms but to others as well, including YouTube, to ask them to pre-emptively block Wiley as it was obvious that he would seek to reoffend elsewhere. Sadly, we were proven correct and, although we would have wanted YouTube to take advance action on this, we welcome their decision today to terminate Wiley’s channels from their platforms for his repeated violations. There can be #NoSafeSpaceforJewHate.”
