YouTube Allows Violent Parody Video of Trump Shooting Journalists

A violent parody depicting President Trump shooting journalists and attacking political opponents (both Democrats and Republicans) — which had been available on YouTube for more than a year — saw a spike in traffic after it aired over the weekend during a conference hosted by the pro-Trump group American Priority at the president's Miami-area golf resort. Critics warned the video could incite real-world violence, but YouTube said the video does not violate its policies because it is "clearly fictional." The company added an age restriction to the video requiring viewers to confirm they are adults before they can watch it.
