YouTube ‘miscarriage prank’

Buzzfeed reports

A video titled “I HAD A MISCARRIAGE PRANK (EMOTIONAL)” posted to YouTube by a young couple is being aggressively flagged by community users. People are now demanding the company pull the video from the platform altogether.


YouTube did not respond to inquiries asking if they will remove the content, and/or suspend Team VZ’s account.

You wonder if, rather than remove the video, there’s some way to make this a “learning experience”. This is spreading across social networks like wildfire, deleting it altogether seems a missed opportunity to discuss the issue at hand.

Per Buzzfeed, YouTube has “age restricted” the clip.
