What is the Youtube Adpocalypse?
Many of you are wondering what is going on with YouTube and the recent "adpocalypse," that is occurring as of May 2017. Many YouTubers are closing their channels - why?
Right now YouTube is undergoing an "ad-boycott" thanks to an article released in the Wall-street Journal back in March 2017. Advertisers are nervous because ad display of racist and subjective content occurred costing Google millions of dollars in lost revenue.
This forced Google to de-monetize many accounts resulting in panic, and paralysis of many YouTubers receiving monetization.

Is this an act of censorship or a massive YouTube clean up? Many conspiracy theorists report acts of censorship, but we feel Google is taking steps to clean up YouTube.
