As YouTube Bans ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ for ‘Medical Misinformation’ It Blows Up in Their Faces, Goes Mega Viral

Over the past month, mainstream networks from all spectrums have been inundated during live events by spectators and crowds in general, chanting “f**k Joe Biden.” The chant had become a rallying cry of the right who feels out of place now that their team isn’t winning. The rally cry came to a head earlier this month as an NBC reporter at NASCAR attempted to cover up the chant by claiming the crowd was saying “Let’s Go Brandon.”

During the interview, what appeared to be thousands of fans were in the stadium seating section of the raceway while NASCAR racer Brandon Brown spoke with the reporter. The chants from the crowd increased in loudness and could be heard as “F**k Joe Biden.” The reporter, quick on her feet, told Brandon and viewers the chants were “Let’s Go Brandon.”

The sheer audacity of the claim led to the “f**k Joe Biden” chant, morphing into a “Let’s go Brandon” chant, which now meant the same thing. Rapper Loza Alexander even made a video out of the chant, which is actually quite catchy.

Alexander’s video quickly went viral and eventually found it way to the magnifying glasses of the YouTube censors. On Thursday, a version of his rap song, “Let’s go Brandon,” which featured Tyson James & Chandler Crump, was banned from the platform.

While YouTube is no stranger to arbitrary and often ridiculous bans, their reasoning behind this one was pretty crazy. Why did the platform remove “Let’s Go Brandon”? Well, “Medical Misinformation,” of course.
