The video of H3H3 was examined
The latest ban comes in response to the video H3H3 uploaded to their YouTube channel. In it, Ethan addressed the recent shootings that took place in the United States and resulted in the deaths of 19 children and two teachers.
During the video, Ethan joked about the bombing of the NRA building. The YouTuber immediately retracted his comment. However, the joke was not liked by many and people were quick to smack him for it.
Ethna Klein is blocked on YouTube
Shortly after receiving much backlash, Ethan confirmed that he had been banned from the platform.
He wrote: “Conservatives were triggered by jokes I told and I was reported en masse. I was banned for a week and the episode was removed. If only they cared about dead children as much as they cared about jokes… Well, I want to apologize. I’m sorry, you’re all such pathetic snowflakes. Fuck the NRA & fuck Abbott.”
He further justified his comment by saying: “I want to make it clear that I am not in favor of any form of violence. That’s obvious to anyone who watched the segment, and not just the 10-second clip used to mislead the attention. Republicans are now the party of the dead children and nothing can detract from that.”
Finally, Ethan admitted he received many death threats after a short clip from his segment went viral on Twitter. However, the YouTuber insists the video doesn’t show what really happened in the latest episode of the H3H3 podcast.

The YouTuber has been banned before
This isn’t the first time the YouTuber has been banned from the platform. Previously, the YouTuber faced problems in December 2021 after an old video of the podcast was mass reported, as per Dexerto.
Because of this, the podcast failed to upload a new Christmas video. The latest ban from 2022 appears to last a week. After that, the podcast will be available again on the platform.
