In a stroke of irony, Google-owned YouTube has deleted an American Conservative Union (ACU) video featuring former President Donald Trump’s announcement of his lawsuit against Big Tech for banning him from social media platforms. YouTube claimed in an email to the ACU that the “America UnCanceled” episode, in which Trump cited a study on hydroxychloroquine as treatment for COVID-19, was removed because of “medical misinformation.” YouTube “did not specify” what statements “allegedly violated their policies,” according to ACU. “The ACU, which hosts the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), received ‘a strike’ on their account from YouTube on July 9, preventing them from uploading new content for a week. This includes ACU’s CPAC 2021 Part 2 in Dallas, Texas, and Trump’s CPAC speech scheduled for Sunday,” the Ohio Star reported. In the offending video, President Trump said, “doctors and medical groups have been barred from these platforms for posting about therapeutics such as hydroxychloroquine… now, most recent studies say [the drug is] effective in combating the virus,” the ACU shared.
