Stop Animals From Being Killed, Tortured, and Eaten Alive on YouTube

Target: Susan Wojcicki, CEO of YouTube

Goal: End the torture, abuse, and killing of animals for human entertainment.

YouTube is profiting from animal cruelty. Videos of the abuse and torture of animals are on the rise in popularity, with dramatic consequences for the victims. An investigation on an online platform called “Lady Freethinker” published the shocking details of the promotion and encouragement of animal suffering.

Many of these disturbing videos violate YouTube’s own community standards, as well as U.S. and U.K. laws such as the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act. Nevertheless, the company condones videos of sentient beings suffering for human pleasure, including captivated and chained up monkeys and animals that succumb to injuries after being run over by vehicles. Additionally, the platform presents videos of dog- and cockfighting, animals that are eaten alive such as octopuses, staged videos where animals are put in life-threatening situations to be “rescued” live on camera, and numerous hunting videos that show illegal actions.

With over 1 billion views, these horrific videos might be worth $15 million for the people who post them and up to $12 million in advertising revenue for YouTube, based on an average cost per 1,000 views taken from a Business Insider survey. In the United States more than half of children between the ages of 8 to 12 watch online videos every day, mostly on YouTube. Animal cruelty videos convey a wrong message to kids and could have a traumatic effect on some.

The multibillion-dollar company YouTube has the responsibility to review and regulate the content on its platform. It has to step up to protect animals, children, and our society.

Sign this petition to urge YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki to implement a no-tolerance policy toward all animal cruelty, use a mechanism to discover videos with abusive content, and willingly remove any video in violation of this policy.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Miss Wojcicki,

Animal cruelty is on the rise on your website. Videos promoting cruelty towards animals violate your company’s community standards, as well as U.S. and U.K. laws such as the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act. Nevertheless, videos of cockfights, animals that are eaten alive, and dying animals are found on your platform. As the CEO of YouTube, you are directly profiting from the abuse of these thousands of animals. Additionally, countless children watch these videos that can have devastating effects on their mental health.

You must implement a no-tolerance policy toward all animal cruelty. This should entail employing a mechanism for quickly and accurately discovering videos featuring animal abuse, and promptly removing all videos in violation of such a policy. Govern the videos on your platform and protect animals from abuse now.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. These low life assholes that torture and abuse animals for fun need to be used in the VA lab for their experiments rather than the animals they use. Maybe after being tortured for awhile this subhumans will think differently

  2. So, let me understand this – we are censoring people from commenting different views political issues that are “unacceptable” but we’re totally fine allowing this garbage/sick crap on the intranet for amusement – social media police – get your act together – hire people to look for this stuff and remove it – pronto – you are doing it for other things like any comments against certain politicians/vaccines – do it for this – do your job!

  3. What the hell is wrong with people??!! If you participate or just enjoy watching this, you need serious help and should not be able to be out in public. You are sick and twisted. Perhaps you should have to suffer the same fate as these innocent animals. Eye for eye!

      TOTALLY AGREE ADRIENNE!!!! THESE SICK DARANGED LESS THAN HUMAN BEINGS THAT GET OFF ON TOURTURING AND WATCHING ANIMALS SUFFER ARE NOTHING BUT PHYCOPATHS THEY ALL NEED TO BE LINED UP AND EXACUTED!!!!

  4. We live in such a disgusting world-but the animals always suffer-the innocent not our fellow nasty subhumans.

  5. Why would you even tolerate vids such as this?

  6. why do they have to abuse selfless animals. It is bad enough that we abuse each other as humans

  7. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. WHERE ARE THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO STAND UP FOR THESE UNSPOKEN FOR ANIMALS ? BUSY ON TIKTOK? ITS TIME THIS WORLD WAKES UP THIS IS NOT OKAY AND NEITHER IS THE BLIND EYE EVERYONE TURNS. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER SPREAD THIS INFORMATION SO THAT WE MAY END THIS PERPETUAL DEMONSTRATION OF STUPIDITY AND LACK OF CLASS. YOUTUBE IS SHIT F THEIR PLATFORM BOYCOT NOW!!!!

  8. What world is it we are living in? Such evil… These disgraceful excuses for human beings need to be tortured then fed to hungry sharks.

  9. These s as re just cowardly bastards that need to be fed to the crocs in the Florida Everglades to be eaten alive. I’d watch them assholes fight for their lives. Then justice would be served!

  10. HORIFYING, DESPICABLE, REPREHENSIBLE, CRUEL, EVIL….and all those involved in these horrors – including those at YouTube need to suffer the same. These horrors must end NOW…IN MY OPINION

  11. Youtube and facebook..needs to be held accountable for the tortures and killings of these poor innocent living beings..ive flag and made some nasty cimment on these faake staged pretend rescues videos. Got ban on youtube and suspension on facebook..because they’re profiting from these animal tortures videos. So what i did was get on google and left a review on trustpilot..which they send directly to companies..then post for public to view.call them DISPICABLE CULPRITS thats profit from animals tortures videos..please everyone google facebook and youtube review..then stroll down to trustpilot and write a reviw for each company separately..leasve them so much so nice review..its going to be send to them immediately..enough is enough..this is barbaric!!

  12. Me Wojcicki- you are responsible for animal torture, abuse, etc if you allow these sick videos to be posted. You censor political views that do not align with yours so I can only assume that you are pro-animal abuse and torture. You should be charged and jailed the same as the sick people that commit these crimes.

  13. Who the hell is doing this crap, they need put out of there misery on a live feed!

  14. These sick, depraved monsters must be charged and put away for good. Damn you YouTube for allowing these perverted torturers to get away with these atrocities.

  15. Youtube, and all other social media sites that allow this unspeakable EVIL should be SHUT DOWN. You are complicit in TORTURE and MURDER!! How do you bastards sleep at night? Shame on every last spineless, soulless, heartless one of you – you should be in jail where you deserve to rot forever. Karma will find you…

  16. “For human entertainment”…exemplifies how much better off this planet and all its species would be without a great deal of those counted as “humans”. It is beyond depraved. Evil incarnate.

  17. Mark Wright says:

    These lowlife motherfucking worms should be crushed without mercy. However, what we all should do is be vigilant and as soon as something appears, report them to law enforcement and animal welfare. If they are banned, the menace goes underground and we will never be able to catch them. We have successfully nailed child molesters and predators, and should do the same with animal abusing cocksuckers. I hope karma makes them wish they were dead.

    • Mark Wright – I couldn’t have said it better myself. Susan Wojcicki is not the person who should be CEO of youtube. Animal torture and murder do not phase her…

  18. Maggie Loughran says:

    This is sick shit

  19. May those who participate, encourage or condone this behavior have karma rain down on them 100 fold. May they suffer great pain, may they lose all they hold dear – jobs, homes, family. May they be left with the nothing they deserve. May guilt wash over them in relentless endless waves.
