BREAKING: YouTube Suspending All Independent Streams of the Kyle Rittenhouse Trial

YouTube is currently suspending all independent livestreams covering the closing arguments in the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

Suspended streams include popular broadcasts such as Law & Crime, The Amazing Lucas, and Rekieta Law.

Mainstream media livestreams remain active.

“Today, @TeamYouTube is pushing down independent creators in favor of BOGUS copyright from Media Partners YT consistently shows that creators who actually build their platform are disfavored to media,” Rekieta Media tweeted moments after their stream was kicked offline. “Hey YouTube. We have a contract, you’re breaking it.”

Rekieta Media had 40,000 viewers when their stream was shut down. They have since went back online, in defiance of the social media giant.

Rittenhouse is charged with killing two men and injuring a third during the violent Black Lives Matter riots in Kenosha in August 2020. The teenager maintains that he was acting in self-defense.
