YouTube Reinstates MFA Video

YouTube has reversed its ban on Mercy For Animals’ most recent undercover film.

YouTube, the popular video-sharing site, has reversed its ban on Mercy For Animals’ (MFA) latest undercover video, which depicts shocking acts of cruelty against calves at a Texas dairy farm. Last week, YouTube removed the video over concerns of sensational, graphic images, and said that any such videos should be “balanced” with educational information. In response, MFA’s Executive Director Nathan Runkle wrote an open letter to YouTube’s CEO, noting, “Silencing one side of the debate over how farmed animals should be treated flies in the face of democracy.” The letter continues, “YouTube seems to be sending a message that hurting animals for fun or profit is acceptable but speaking out against such abuses is not.” According to MFA, YouTube has now reinstated the video.
