Egirl Belle Delphine’s YouTube channel was banned without any warning from the platform. As you probably already know, content creators have to violate one or more of YouTube’s guidelines in order to get their channel deleted, and even then, they usually receive two warnings beforehand. But for Belle Delphine, this was not the case. Her YouTube channel was terminated straight away, without any warning. So what did Belle Delphine do exactly for her two million subscriber channel to get banned?

Why was Belle Delphine banned from YouTube?

On 23 November 2020, Belle Delphine’s 1.79 million subscriber YouTube channel was terminated with no warning or notice from the platform. It has sparked some conversation in the YouTube community as well as Belle Delphine’s fanbase, and many videos have already shown up discussing the sudden ban.

If you search for Belle Delphine’s channel, you’ll see that it was actually terminated for violating YouTube’s policy on sexual content. Your search should say: “this account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content.”

YouTube is already facing backlash online for not warning the creator and many are complaining that it is unfair as there are many videos already on YouTube that contain nudity or explicit content, but are not banned. On top of that, fans are aware that Belle Delphine should have received a couple of warnings before her channel was deleted.

On Twitter, Belle Delphine herself highlighted how suggestive videos like Cardi B’s ‘WAP’ were allowed to live on YouTube, yet her videos brought on the ban.

It seems like she is banned due to the nature of her content, more specifically for her music video ‘I’m Back’, which she posted in June 2020 when she returned to social media.

Will Belle Delphine be back on YouTube?

While it remains unsure whether Belle Delphine will be coming back to YouTube, be that on her original channel or through a new one, it is not the first time that YouTube terminated huge creators’ channels such as James Charles, so she might come back soon.

YouTube did reply to Belle Delphine’s tweet, which means that we can at least be sure that they are investigating the situation.

Who is Belle Delphine?

Belle Delphine became widely popular on social media after her GamerGirl Bath Water stunt, where she sold her own used bath water on her merch store in July 2019 for £24 a jar. She claimed that the idea came from her followers who regularly commented on her posts saying that they would drink her bath water. Belle Delphine’s bath water sold out in three days.

The 21-year-old is also known for her explicit content on social media, most notably on her Instagram account, which has since then been banned too. As the queen of skimpy cosplay, Belle Delphine had a 4.5 million following before her Instagram ban. She also promised nude content of herself on OnlyFans and never delivered—another one of her attempts at trolling her fans.
