YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki apologized to the LGBTQ community for not banning videos involving homophobic slurs last week, but maintained that she believed the company made the right decision based on its current policies.




"I know that the decision we made was very hurtful to the LGBTQ community and that was not our intention at all," Wojcicki said on Monday at Recode's Code Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. "And we're really sorry about that."




The apology followed a tumultuous week for YouTube following its decision not to remove videos from one of its stars Steven Crowder after the conservative commentator made repeated homophobic remarks about Vox journalist, Carlos Maza.




"We need to enforce those policies consistently," Wojcicki said. "We don't want to be knee jerk."
