Markiplier a YouTuber with more than 24 Million subscribers had an unfortunate experience with YouTube. He recently released a series with a “choose your own adventure” theme. While streaming he wanted the viewers to interact and choose the direction of the story. For this he asked chat to use emotes and because of this a lot of accounts were banned by an automated YouTube bot. But the biggest problem isn’t this, their entire Google accounts got banned. And to top it all off their appeals got also denied.
He made a video explaining the problem and fortunately, YouTube heard his “call”, they apologized and said that the accounts were reinstated. But still, some accounts haven’t been reinstated yet and some have missing videos.
