On Sunday and Monday, many outspoken LGBTQ YouTubers took to Twitter to call out the site for blocking their videos to people on restricted mode.

This new feature is meant to block potentially inappropriate content to younger viewers, but has been met with a significant amount of backlash.

For instance, most of the music videos by Canadian recording artists Tegan and Sara can’t be viewed, along with content by gay YouTuber Tyler Oakley.

Since the discussion sparked, Youtube has responded on Twitter, although their is no sign that the “confusion” has been fixed.

What do you think of the new restrictions? Let us know in the comments below.
