So recently they also attacked my Persian channel … And if you go and check my videos, you will see my new videos hardly get views and my old videos that used to get many views stopped getting views. This is because I am getting filtered”.
“They age restricted my ab workout video. A video that has nothing bad in it. Nothing sexual. Why did they do that? Because it got famous and was getting many views, so they age-restricted that video to keep it from getting views. I contacted support team and team and they all said the same thing, ‘there are some inappropriate things in your videos.”
