Popular conservative pundit Dan Bongino had his YouTube channel temporarily suspended and demonetized Friday after he said in a video that masks are “useless” in stopping the spread of COVID-19. The suspension lasts a week.
This is the Fox News personality’s first strike in the platform’s three-strike system. Three strikes in 90 days results in a permanent ban. The suspension is still significant: He has 870,000 subscribers on YouTube.
His Bongino Report Twitter account tweeted Friday, “BREAKING: YouTube just suspended Dan’s channel for daring to question the mask fascists. I guess they were waiting for an apology from us. But that’s not quite how it worked out for them.”
The tweet shared a screenshot and said it was an email Bongino had sent to a YouTube representative. In the note, he wrote, “If I said I was surprised here I’d be lying. We knew it was just a matter of time before the tyrannical, free-speech hating, bulls—, big tech s—hole you work for, would try to silence us. I anxiously waited for this moment however, as I’ve said on my show many times.”
He went on to say he’s an investor in Rumble, the YouTube competitor that has attracted a number of conservative creators in recent months. He called it “a video platform that respects free-speech.”
“As a matter of fact,” he said, “I have more than double the number of followers there, than on your s— platform.”
He said he will not negotiate and will continue to “post content questioning why masks have been totally ineffective in stopping this pandemic. I dare you to do something about it.”
A representative for YouTube did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
‘Mandolorian Fans’ Want This Character to Return for Season 3 (no, Not Cara Dune)
One of the keys to the Star Wars franchise’s forty-plus years of success is its ability to create memorable characters that become fan favorites, sometimes after only a single appearance. Some characters, like the bounty hunters Bossk and Dengar, for example, may not even have a single line of dialogue and yet will go on to populate the pages of the various novels and comic books that flesh out the expanding Star Wars galaxy.
The new Star Wars streaming series are no exception to this rule and the series that created the mold for Disney Plus’s offerings, The Mandolorian, is a prime example of the phenomenon with characters from the first season gaining extended storylines in the second season and even crossing over into other Star Wars properties.
Rihanna Already Has the Best Pregnancy Style
Rihanna had a very exciting announcement over the weekend, as she debuted her baby bump while strolling around New York City with her boyfriend, A$AP Rocky.
Rihanna and A$AP Rocky, who started dating in November 2020 after several years of friendship, were photographed walking around Manhattan hand-in-hand with a picture-perfect snowy backdrop, and Rihanna revealed that the two are expecting their first child together in the most stylish way possible.
The Fenty mogul had a very high-fashion pregnancy debut, as she wore a bubblegum-pink silk Chanel puffer that was unbuttoned to reveal her bare baby bump. The chic pink jacket, which is from Karl Lagerfeld’s 1996 Chanel collection, features gold buttons and a mid-calf hem. The Grammy Award-winner paired the puffer jacket with loose, light-wash distressed denim jeans, and a classic gold-and-black Chanel belt. Her jewelry was on point, of course; she accessorized with a cross necklace with colorful gemstones, layered with other baubles.
The bare stomach was definitely an ambitious choice considering the frigid temperatures in New York right now, but from the adorable snaps of the couple, it seems that Rihanna, who earned official billionaire status in August 2021, wasn’t bothered by the brisk weather.
Rihanna wore her hair half-up, and while nothing could compete with her pregnancy glow, of course the Fenty Beauty entrepreneur did not disappoint when it came to her makeup; she kept up the pink theme with a dusty pink lip and blush, and finished off the look with a slight smoky eye.
The sweet pictures of the couple were taken by celeb photographer Diggzy in Harlem, where A$AP Rocky grew up, per People.
Rihanna has been giving us a subtle sneak peek of her maternity style over the past few weeks; she’s managed to hide her bump with chic oversized jackets, including an orange shearling Bottega Veneta coat, a bright blue Martine Rose windbreaker with a Prada fur stole, and a big red nylon Balenciaga puffer jacket. Even though Rihanna has only given us a glimpse of her absolutely fantastic maternity style, the phenomenal high-fashion looks are sure to continue throughout her pregnancy.
