YouTube has removed more than 270 accounts and over 150,000 videos from its platform, and switched off commenting on 625,000 videos targeted by child predators, according to Vice News. More and more people are jumping to the kid's section of YouTube to create "algorithmically" generated videos with keywords like "Elsa" or "Spider-Man" to target the advertising revenue with content that's clearly unsuited for kids.

"Marketers have spent millions of dollars over many decades to build brand equity and loyalty", said Association of National Advertisers CEO Bob Liodice, a USA trade group representing more than 1,000 companies. YouTube said it would block predatory comment sections on videos of minors earlier this month, and said it would crack down on freakish videos targeting children. The company has expanded its enforcement guidelines for removing child-endangering content that features minors, even when that isn't the uploader's intent. (Those autocomplete terms appeared to have been removed by Tuesday morning.) The weird search results may have been the work of trolls who successfully gamed the YouTube search algorithm to make the phrases appear at the top of the autocomplete list, the BuzzFeed report speculated.
