YouTube on Thursday restored the Ron Paul Institute channel after mistakenly removing it for violating its community guidelines, the company said.
Responding to a tweet from former Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul announcing that his channel had been removed apparently without warning, YouTube said its enforcement action was a “mistake” and quickly corrected the error.
Earlier, Paul tweeted he was “Very shocked that @YouTube has completely removed the Channel of my Ron Paul Institute,” the popular libertarian host of the “Ron Paul Liberty Report,” saying the channel was removed without warning, strikes, nor evidence of wrongdoing.
“Only explanation was ‘severe or repeated violations of our community guidelines.’ Channel is rarely used. The appeal was automatically rejected. Help?” said Paul.
