Google you’ve done it again…

YouTubePopular video sharing site, YouTube has blocked/removed four videos that poke fun at Thailand’s king, a “serious offence” in Thailand. However, YouTube has kept two videos on as they do not break the lese majeste laws, which the other four videos ‘broke’.

However, YouTube thankfully refused to remove the videos when they first surfaced on the Internet.

When the videos first surfaced mocking King Bhumibol Adulyadej, YouTube was blocked in Thailand. It has been suggested that Google, which owns YouTube, bowed to the pressure because of lost revenue.

Google, unfortunately, has bowed to political pressure, and agreed to censorship, like it did with China’s search results.
