Please note, the following links are to Youtube account subscribers, also known as channels. Each channel has videos that need to be flagged, reported & disliked. The 'uploaded' videos are the videos that need to be reported --- not the favorites. If you wish to report the channel owner’s favorite videos, please do so after all uploaded videos have been reported.
*Instructions on how to flag, report & dislike videos on Youtube.*
Create YouTube Account – Click on one of the links provided below and then follow these simple instructions:
#1 Stop video from playing (some videos automatically start)
#2 Dislike the video (thumbs down)
#3 Move across to Flag icon to your right & click it.
#4 A drop down box will appear. Select ‘hateful or abusive content.’
#5 From there, move your cursor across to the right and select: ‘Promotes Hatred or Violence’
#6 A further drop down list will appear:
- ethnic origin
- gender identity
- national origin
- sexual orientation
- veteran status
You can select either race, gender identity, or sexual orientation, as these youtube users are promoting a gross falsehood about Michael Jackson and sexual abuse, and are often racist and homophobic. Your choices here are not ideal but youtube will not accept your report if you do not make a selection.
#7 On the upper right hand side select “switch to grid view”
#8 Once in "grid view" located on the upper left hand side of the screen, under the word “uploaded” are the videos that the abusive user has uploaded to Youtube and that need to be reported. Due to lack of spacing and depending on how many videos are uploaded, some of the videos may or may not be hidden. To assure you're reporting the correct amount of uploaded videos, while still in "grid view" select "ALL" the quantity is located in parenthesis ( ) to the left. Example: UPLOADS (10) FAVORITES (6)
#9 Select the next Youtube channel subscriber and repeat steps 1 through 8
*Here are the Users Channels to work through:*
The channels marked with an ‘x’ contain no uploaded videos but still have offensive videos that need to be reported, flagged and disliked.
