YouTube Has Blood On Its Hands And They Don’t Fucking Care

‪When I was a kid I felt I deserved to be mistreated because I was gay. This had a lot to do with me not seeing grown gay people standing up for themselves — and it wasn’t safe to.‬

‪So when you see me fighting now, it’s not about winning.‬

‪I’m reclaiming myself, and all the years.‬

After over a full year of this super intense, targeted harassment campaign against me by the since-banned Reddit trolls, every single tech company has intervened except for YouTube, which just this week let us know they will not be taking action to protect me on their platform.

The teams at YouTube have all the facts, covered extensively everywhere from People Magazine to gay blogs, to the official Reddit blog itself. This situation caused Reddit to change their entire harassment policy, yet YouTube would still rather get paid for the clicks than help. More on that setup HERE.

The safety team at Reddit, which had previously been the garbage fire of the internet, said it best in their post about why they intervened: “Ban evaders (and others up to no good) often work across platforms, and so it’s important for those of us in the industry to also share information when we spot these types of coordinated campaigns.”

Yet, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s teams at YouTube refuse to look at the big picture and have sided with the content creators (trolls) whose entire goal in mocking me for my past mental health struggles, discrediting my career, publishing lies about crimes I’ve never committed, and attempting to dangerously “out” people in my private life for being gay, is to drive me to suicide — something they have stated plainly throughout this process as their end goal in torturing me.

YouTube’s charming clickbait algorithm serves up these videos, intended to organize troll narratives and coordinate these attacks across platforms, while also allowing these troll YouTube creators to monetize the abuse, to anyone who watches my music videos or searches my name. None of it is true, and all of it is meant to diminish, intimidate, cyberstalk and harass me, as part of this larger targeted abuse campaign.

No one should have to endure what I have over the past 18 months since this latest wave of homophobic hate and attempts to destroy me, my career and my reputation, began. Wikipedia locked the Logan Lynn article down FOR THIS VERY REASON. Facebook jumped in to help and removed all of the fake profiles and instances where even these exact videos that YouTube refuses to remove were posted on their platform and on Instagram. Twitter Support jumped in and banned these users from harassing me or posting these videos on their platform, too.

It is ONLY YouTube who refuses to do anything about their piece of this mess, and it’s absolutely disgusting — especially in light of their recent announcements and the positive PR they’ve received for supposedly updating their harassment policies to also include public figures. The reality is, it’s all for show. They have no intention of actually making YouTube safer for anyone, because clicks are clicks and ad revenue is ad revenue.

To anyone who could possibly help me over at YouTube and Google: I am literally begging you to just be as decent as Reddit. That’s a VERY low bar, and one you should be trying to hit.

This right here is a twisted business model:

Removing a handful of comments encouraging me to commit suicide under the videos, but leaving the actual videos where the trolls are organizing and amplifying those exact narratives and comments as their larger online abuse strategy misses the mark of community safety completely.

The Logan Lynn Reddit page got banned and shut down because these YouTube users and their troll friends took it over — an exact directive from one of the many videos we have reported on YouTube over the past year, encouraging viewers to find me on other sites to bully and harass me.

As far as my team, attorney, and management is concerned, the careless, irresponsible Executive Team at YouTube is solely responsible for the torture at this point because you continue to protect and promote the abuse as “content”. This is ALL on you. What you’re doing is dangerous and wrong.

The only thing we have ever asked of YouTube is that they actually take a look at the larger context of this well-documented trolling and stop allowing the pieces that only YouTube can stop, just as Reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Instagram and all other platforms have done.

PLEASE HELP ME.

Whoa. 2019.

For a year that included me having to fight multiple tech companies in and out of the press for protecting trolls and profiting off of abuse, a full blown RV manufacturing scandal and international media tour that I inexplicably found myself at the center of as a RoadTrek owner, and a major integration back into society after 9 months of off-grid misadventuring at the beach, I love that my 2019 still somehow managed to be all about pop stars, very pretty clothes, building rad shit with my favorite people, responding to hate by going punk on systems change, having my songs somehow make their way into the mainstream, signing to a new label, and the beauty of nature in spite of it all.

If you’re reading this, fuck yes. I love you. Thanks for being here. 🖤

Thank You, Recording Academy!

Thanks to everyone who voted for My Movie Star in the 3 categories it was up for at the GRAMMYs!

We (predictably) lost the Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album nomination to Barbra Streisand, John Legend, Elvis Costello, Michael Bublé, and Andrea Bocelli, but holy hell it was fun to see our names on that ballot.

I also cannot stress enough how much I loved working with (and then #Grammy campaigning with!!!!) my childhood pop hero Tiffany. Her beautiful rendition of Big City Now from My Movie Star ultimately lost the Best Pop Solo Performance nom to Beyoncé, Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, Lizzo and Taylor Swift, but I’m #TeamTiff FOREVER.

Working across genres on My Movie Star was really exciting, and while Scott Simpson’s cover of Underground was knocked out of the Best Country Solo Performance race by Willie Nelson, Blake Shelton, Ashley McBryde, Tyler Childers, and Tanya Tucker in round 2, infiltrating the Country ballot was a trip.

Congrats, everybody! I’ll see you at the big show in LA on January 26th. 🤘🏆
