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. STOP ALL ANIMAL KILLINGS AND EATING ALL ANIMALS ALIVE IMMEDIATELY!!! ANIMAL CRUELTY IS A CRIMINAL CHARGE; SO THEREFORE, ANYONE KILLING WILD PROTECTED ANIMALS SHOULD BE HELD CRIMINAL RELIABLE AND PUT THEM INTO A PRISON CELL FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES!!!!!

  2. Susan Wojcicki sorgen Sie dafür das diese schrecklichen videos von der Plattform verschwinden, wie kann man nur so abscheulich sein aus Profitgier und diese videos online stellen lassen, sie haben die Pflicht dafür zu sorgen dass so was nicht auf YouTube zu sehen ist. Sie sollten sich schämen sonst sind sie Mitschuldig.

  3. It sickens me to see what some so called humans have become!

    • So true- I believe the moral has sunk
      The deepest ever since the pandemic
      !
      Someday we eat each other!
      Not so far fetched!

    This evil torture of these helpless, defenseless creatures, has to stop NOW. I know both Mr. Durbin and Ms. Underwood to be honest, decent and caring representatives of we voters and I implore them to do the right thing and push as hard as they need to, in order end this criminal, in humane abuse of these animals. Making money via the showing of this torture is wrong, evil and criminal, no matter how anyone tries to rationalize all of this. Make money the old fashioned way……..work for it and earn it, honestly and ethically!!

  5. Monstrous monstrous evil, heartbreaking and horrific, karma is theirs – I feel you, poor lost innocent souls; their blood on your souls

    The abuse, torture & murder of the innocents

    Some heartbreaks can never be unseen, some horrors never unheard – PLEASE GOD

    And the universe weeps tears of blood

    Your life as theirs, as their death

  6. Stop giving these sick people a platform for other sick demented people to watch. Please end it now!!

  7. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. THIS IS UNCONSCIONABLE. WE ARE VERY SURPRISED THAT THIS COMPANY/WEBSITE ALLOWS THIS TO BE SHOWN. THE PEOPLE OF POST THESE ARE DESPICABLE “INHUMAN” “IT” THINGS. THEY ARE DESPICABLE LOW-LIFE HEARTLESS INDIVIDUALS. THIS MUST BE STOPPED AND BANNED IMMEDIATELY. AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE DOING THESE SICKENING CRUEL ACTS MUST BE REPORTED AND ARRESTED.

    YouTube should monitor it’s website to make sure images and videos of all forms of animal abuse, pain and suffering are not allowed on it’s website. I’ll never understand how people can get pleasure or enjoyment out of abusing animals and/or watching it. It so repulsive and despicable.

  9. YouTube is actively supporting and enabling horrific animal abuse for profit, period. If they weren’t making money on animal abuse they’d take it down, but money is more important than life is to YouTube. Despicable corporate greed and complete lack of integrity.

  10. It all goes to show you that there are really sick people everywhere, & it doesn’t stop when it comes to the thoughtless, uncaring humans that run YouTube. For them to think(?) showing animals in extreme danger or being killed as entertainment, would be psychological problems that would have kept doctor Sigmund Freud busy his whole life. They need to grow up & make a cleaner, less offensive dollar by showing more tasteful clips.

  12. Lynn Skilling says:

  13. Maria Bertrand says:

GET THE F…K OF THIS PLANET YOU ALL DESERVE EACH OTHER ON SOME NOMANSLAND WHERE YOU CAN’T TORTURE ANYTHING BUT YOURSELVES. I BELIEVE TORTURE WILL COME TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU IN TIME… I PRAY SOONER!!!!!!!

  14. Kat Gonzalez says:

    These people are INSANE! Totally insane! They need prison time for at least 10 years to give them time to think of what they have done. Of course, they probably will never be sane with compassion but hoping they do not do it again if they have a LOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGG prison time with NO parole.

  15. Shirley Lemieux says:

    It truly is appalling that a Ceo and a person of this stature like Susan Wojcicki permits individuals to promote videos of violence, torture, and animal abuse on their platform for public viewing. Everyone involved in the uploading of these videos and those who allow it should all be prosecuted. What a sickening and pathetic world we live in.

  16. Elizabeth Bona says:

    It’s outrageous that you allow thos animal torture on YouTube. There isn’t even a button to report animal cruelty, animal cruelty isn’t mentioned as a reporting option! Why? Why are you profiting off torture? I had the misfortune to be subjected to one of these videos without my prior knowledge and it’s affected me terribly. I’m haunted by it, I still cry about it. How dare you allow this? You have no heart!

  17. Susan – What the hell is wrong with you that you would allow these types of videos to be uploaded to Youtube and then viewed by millions, if not billions, of people? It is obvious that money is more important to you than the torture and murder of innocent animals. You need to be removed as CEO of Youtube – immediately. WTF? How do you even sleep at night?

  18. Maria Bertrand says:

    Wojcicki How about you actually REPORT ALL THESE PSYCHOS THAT POST ANY KIND OF VIOLENCE TO ANIMALS!!!

    IF YOU DON’T YOU NEED TO FEEL WHAT THE ANIMALS ARE SUBJECTED TO. AGREE WITH KATHY YOU NEED TO CHARGED WITH AIDING AND ABETTING.

  19. What the hell is wrong with these sadistic, demonic subhumans and what the hell is wrong with YouTube? Anyone doing this or promoting any of this should be incarcerated and prohibited from all contact with animals, children or any decent human being. These subhumans should also be prohibited from breeding–we don’t need more psychopaths.

  20. Death penalty for these idiots
