TAIPEI — Taiwanese singer 謝金燕 Jeannie Hsieh’s new music video for her single Turn Face Mask was banned by YouTube on Monday, right after it went online.
A scene in which the singer stands behind a mannequin with breasts showing was considered inappropriate content by YouTube, according to Chinese-language media.
It seems that it was all a misunderstanding and the fault was in YouTube’s algorithms which misread the boobs as real boobs. The MV was back online later that evening. Many videos on the subject of Covid-19 have been similarly blocked in recent months. No apologies from YouTube of course.
