YouTube says that an error caused comments critical of China’s government to auto-delete

YouTube responded to reports that it is automatically deleting comments criticizing the Chinese government on Tuesday, explaining that the seeming censorship is actually an error in its automated moderation systems.
As the Verge reported, comments on the platform using the Chinese phrases for “communist bandit” or “50-cent party“—two terms tied to criticisms of the Chinese Communist Party were taken down almost instantly, even if those comments were positive. The latter term (?? or “wumao dang“) refers to China’s censorship efforts, particularly the idea that online commenters are paid to deflect criticism for the government.
Oculus and Anduril founder Palmer Luckey drew attention to the phenomenon on Monday.
