BANNED: Tide Pod Meme Gets YouTuber Bijuu Mike Two Community Strikes

BANNED: Tide Pod Meme Gets YouTuber Bijuu Mike Two Community Strikes
The Tide Pod meme has been a popular topic of conversation on YouTube and the Internet in general. The laundry product's resemblance to gummy candy has caused a lot of people to try to eat them in something called The Tide Pod Challenge. It's an obviously dangerous thing, yet people won't be discouraged from doing it.

Strangely, YouTube has been issuing community strikes to channels that are merely discussing the meme. These channels aren't eating the Tide Pods, and they aren't encouraging people to eat them. In fact, they're actively warning people not to eat Tide Pods. In particular, one YouTuber named Bijuu Mike received two community strikes over his Tide Pod videos. Because of these strikes, he can no longer upload videos to his channel with nearly 1 million subscribers. YouTube will also not tell him why they upheld the strikes upon appeal.

YouTube's lack of consistency and transparency in how it enforces its rules is absolutely ridiculous, and it must change.

Bijuu Mike - 2018-01-13
Thanks for putting the message out there it means alot dude! This was really good video and im not saying that because it was about me. I agree that this is not very consistent with other videos in fact there are still plenty of other videos still up about tide pods although i don't think i am the only who got affected by this. I also want to clarify that as of right now i cannot upload but i guess i can in 2 weeks but what worries me even more is the loss of traction that happens when you do not upload for 2 weeks and it kinda screws you over in the algorithm because youtube favors daily uploads. Also im worried about how this effects my standing as far as ads and if this will somehow label me a "problematic channel" in YouTube's Eyes.

They say if your last name is Paul and your first happens to be Logan you can post whatever you want, only other option is to post under ISIS then you can put up decapitations and shootings and your good!

A youtuber got banned when he did a video about tide pods in VR Chat


Entropydemic - 2018-01-14
I was blocked from my youtube channel a few years ago and had to make this new channel. The video I posted was a fully clothed woman crawling on a bed (no face shown) and her heaving breasts dangled and jiggled when she'd move but nothing was showing. I tried to appeal the upload ban but the channel died with that twelve second video.

I reviewed it dozens of times to look for ANYTHING that might be offensive before I uploaded it.

Maybe standards or rules have changed, because there is far more sexually intense videos of much greater magnitude, and even during the rise of my old channel there were much racier things about.

I’m magically delicious

I like your facial hair bro

Hey, your channel is good and I kind of secretly hate everyone.. so you’re doing something right. Your content is relevant, interesting, consistent, you’ve got good aesthetics and you literally sound like a radio personality. I like that you are a huge skeptic and I feel like if someone told you to act a certain way, you’d tell them to go fuck themselves. I mean I don’t just go on social media looking for people to network with but I keep running across people I feel like are on kind of the same page. YouTube isn’t really my platform, as you can see from my totally random nonsensical content but I had to stop here and say something because I feel like that maybe I could help you, like I have been fortunate enough to connect with some really awesome Internet personalities lately and I’m just kind of trying to help dial everyone in because I see this sort of vision for how we should expect entertainment to be, and we need to do a better job at being more responsible about who we push to the top. Not to talk shit but I just can’t get down with a lot of these major influencers right now who are doing such dumb stuff just for the views. I feel like you’re more mature and not a huge egotist like a lot of the people who are getting all of the views right now and I think it’s time we expect this stuff to change. So I build websites, write SEO niche content. I cover a pretty broad range but I’m building different communities based on each niche. I direct content for a project management SaaS web app and I’m authoring a book for a major influencer on the board of tech advisors for Forbes. I’ve got an adult coloring book collaboration I’m working on. I run a couple of “female music producer” groups and pages but dudes are welcome in them too. I’m promoting a few Super Deluxe personalities right now, and some other really rad artists. I’m not trying to take any money from the little guys so I’ve been trying to get creative for ways to build mutually beneficial friendships with people who are working hard like I am ... but the criteria is just I’m kinda looking for people who don’t buy into all of the bullshit expectations of society so everyone I’ve been following and writing about is a lil weird but like in a good way. So I produce music. I’ve been producing since the 90s but I stay kinda under the radar or I had been until I left my corporate job of over a decade about a year ago. I was selling phones so I’m pretty tech oriented I guess. I write for this website Sanvada and this dude who owns it just scored a gig working for the San Francisco Chronicle. Pretty much everyone I have been befriending has been on the upswing so anyways.. I feel like if you keep it consistent it won’t be long before you’re a major influencer too like some of my other friends because from what I can see you’ve got the formula down pat. I dunno if you want to talk hit me up. Here’s one of my websites: http://www.beatreaper.com and here is the startup I work for: http://www.webuildmonsters.io here’s my artist page: http://www.soundcloud.com/lacyreneehey or gracelesslacy I can’t remember. .. Not trying to spam your channel but maybe we could work on something. Maybe I could feature you on my site or something. I wasn’t really looking but you seem like you got it together so ya know.. why not get creative and I can see if I can maybe help you somehow. Maybe if you think there is anything that fits with your vibe you can borrow some music for your channel or something. I’m not stingy with my intellectual property and I’m not money hungry or anything. I’m just sick of what people are passing off as good entertainment and our bullshit mainstream media sources. I write too much. I think you get where I’m coming from. If you have time just hit me up and maybe we can figure something out and maybe I can try to dial you into my network. Otherwise carry on I like what you’ve done with the place lol.

Seriously youtube. Stop being the disney channel let people be creative


Karolyn K - 2018-01-14
Proctor and Gamble is prob important to Youtube.


vikipoyta - 2018-01-14
Trusted Flagger on twitter might be able to help


Chloe Malveaux - 2018-01-14
Random guess, but I am thinking it might be Tide as a company trying to work with Youtube to get rid of videos that highlight this meme since a brand explicitly being tied to a meme that can potentially kill people. That might be enough of a negative connotation that the brand will work to remove mention that this meme is a thing. So probably not a problem with the youtube and the content but the brand still has a problem and Youtube probably wants to make that company happy so they keep advertising on Youtube.


Benji James - 2018-01-14
well holy shit, that's just not ok, dude. What gives!? At this point, they're just cutting themselves off at the knees by removing content that's making them more money than the average content creator

Nightcore AnimeFreak - 2018-01-14
I TOTALLY F*****G AGREE, Bijuu Mike IS one of my favorite youtubers (only one i watch) and they freaking do that to him, that's just basically f***d up. Why don't like they WATCH the video or make somebody watch it and know what they are talking about, it's like a freaking WARNING to the peeps out there EATING the tide pods, like a girl just did who f******g got killed, I am just triggered right now and I hope that this will not affect Bijuu Mike Reaching his goal.


Caalamus - 2018-01-14
Your recent content is headed in a solid direction√


NotThe Khara - 2018-01-13
There's a video about someone that ate a detergent pod and didn't give any warnings about it. That didn't get a strike. But bijuu mike's video got a strike!!? YouTube used to be a good place.


SmilingDrip25 - 2018-01-13
This is my first time watching one of your videos (cuase of bijuu) and i definetly loved your little outro at the end!


Darqueness - 2018-01-13
Yet another situation where everyone is expected to follow the rules or else, yet aren't really told exactly what all the rules are. Cuz that clearly makes perfect sense...


KIMetal - 2018-01-13
You have to be kidding me. YouTube is just getting more and more ridiculous.


Star Boy - 2018-01-13
I like that profile picture it's funny. 0:32


TheLastingEmber - 2018-01-13
Bullshit. Fucking bullshit. He’s DISCOURAGING EATING THE DAMN THINGS! And he gets community stricken.


Capitán Rastrero - 2018-01-13
You old intro was better


JacksPerspective - 2018-01-13
GREAT video btw, very valid good logical points you make.


Blooms Indiana - 2018-01-13
Around a few hours before Bijuu Mike got hit with the strikes, Tide released a statement saying not to eat tide pods on twitter. This might be a correlation with the brand requesting to take Down any videos that showed people eating the pods, and Bijuu Mike unfortunately got hit too. Notice how the similar don’t drink bleach and don’t eat shaving cream reacting to memes didn’t get struck down even though they were the exact same thing.


JacksPerspective - 2018-01-13
I personally DONT like that colour hat on you. I prefer the punkish style, too much colour. Just my brain, you do you :) x


Doritolover 95 - 2018-01-13
How did bijuu mike get these strikes when Logan Paul showed a dead body #WTFYOUTUBE


Doritolover 95 - 2018-01-13
Like this comment if you want to riot against YouTube for bijuu mike


wavywebsurf - 2018-01-13
they hit me with the fatty age restriction on my tide pod thing


Antonio Lopez - 2018-01-13
Brilliant video


TheDyingcherry - 2018-01-13
Logan Paul:*shows dead body. Bijuu mike: Shows cute anime girl resembling tide pods...WTF youtube. Are you serious? Not when he's this close to 1 mil.


Love Hart - 2018-01-13
You're probably getting a lot of traffic from bijuu Mike's Channel right now cuz I recognize at least three of the people who have commented down below as Bijuu Mike fans (me included)


Godsign - 2018-01-13
Fucking t*de p*ds


Shmurrberry - 2018-01-13
im subbing to you


WifiIs4Wafflez _ - 2018-01-13
Poor bijuu mike...I love him!


Athel - 2018-01-13
Now what would happen if Pewdiepie were to post something related to tide pods


Random_Human #6,371,409,257 - 2018-01-13
Can everyone just riot against YouTube?


Gisvyne - 2018-01-13
Slazo also got 2 strikes because of videos about Tide pods.


Honky Tonk - 2018-01-13
Does two strikes means he's demonetized too? wtf.


Mike R. - 2018-01-13
Logan Paul puts up a video of a dead body, doesn't seem to have suffered any major consequences. People upload videos talking about the dead body video, and they get their videos deleted.


Honky Tonk - 2018-01-13
Stop joking around. how could anybody get strike for that!


Sean Mccracken - 2018-01-13
I think political correctness has a huge part on why alot of these videos keep getting hit. Or more or less, everyone is a bunch of pussies. Great video. Keep it up.


murfy murf - 2018-01-13
I was totally wondering if you were gonna make a video about this. A few days ago, a toddler died from eating a tide pod. I figured youtube would crack down on this meme.


Whang! - 2018-01-13
Here's a collection of my less serious videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAWWxaGLLbA&index=1&list=PLU_4_X2epTdCLuOoKy3MDvVwM4GNhOSR9


TheSlayFer Ch. T. - 2018-01-13
Ok, considering that prior to the Tie Pod meme people used to shitpost the "Drinking Bleach" or Clorox meme and still use it on videos and whatnot, shouldn't YouTube also be cracking down on videos that have that meme as well?
And yes this is the aftermath of Logan Paul's fuck up, YouTube cracks down on everyone else but their "golden boys".


-xX666Archain666Xx- - 2018-01-13
we can still eat t*** p**-chan right


Clifford your big red God - 2018-01-13
Shoulda just uploaded a video of a kid dying from the challenge.

Would've avoided any drama.


Geraldo iz cool - 2018-01-13
