Bungie Clarifies Content Strikes and Takedowns Affecting Destiny 2 Community


While content warnings and channel takedowns aren’t new to YouTube, the Destiny 2 The community was recently hit by a wave of strikes against some of the game’s most notable content creators. The situation became such that some content creators, such as Aztecross, were at risk of losing their channels as a result of the strikes, compounded by the fact that it was not clear why these strikes were happening.
