The ultimate gamer girl, Belle Delphine, was banned from YouTube. The content creator known for her bathwater amongst other things was banned without warning from the video-sharing website. After protests from fans and creators, calling YouTube out on double standards her channel is now back up.
Belle Delphine is half content creator, half meme at this point. She has used her platform and her impeccable knowledge of what people on the internet want to talk about to gain a massive following across social media.
The creator was suddenly banned from YouTube without warning, however. Usually, if you are to be banned from the platform, YouTube will have a system of strikes. One, two, three you're out. These strikes are also over a timed period so they aren't permanent on you YouTube record, you just have to make sure you don't violate any other rules for several months.
Belle Delphine is saying, however, that she didn't get any warning. YouTube has in the past banned people instantly without strikes if their abuse of the rules is extreme but some are arguing that Delphine's content isn't far from other videos you'd see on the platform.
"WAP" from Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion caused quite a bit of fuss all over the internet earlier this year as some thought the video and the lyrics were too sexually explicit for social media. That video is still up on YouTube without a problem, and the amount of nudity/content is a similar level to that of some of Belle Delphine's work argued many.

However, Belle Delphine has announced that her YouTube is back up after calls for it to be reinstated. There isn't any information on if she got a strike rather than a ban, for example, but we're sure she'll have to be more careful about what she puts up from now on.
