YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said Tuesday that it’s ‘more important than ever’ for YouTube to remain an ‘open platform’ just one day after a banning spree targeted users for so-called ‘hate speech’.

Can the world’s largest video company continue to let its 2 billion users upload anything they want, whenever they want?

Yes, says the woman who runs that company: In a letter (link) addressed to creators on YouTube, in a new level of gaslighting:

“I believe preserving an open platform is more important than ever,” Wojcicki writes in a quarterly note aimed at YouTube’s most ardent users, who upload videos onto the site for fun and profit.

While that note is usually dedicated to celebrating YouTube’s wide swath of creators, this one spends most of its time defending the idea that YouTube will continue to keep its doors open to anyone who wants to post just about anything on the site.
