And see what they are actually using. Using and highlight that yeah, and let the company's no and frankly public about it because you know if it wasn't for groups, like is and for individuals that are during this work. People wouldn't know and again. Businesses aren't interested in acting, so we try to keep this as public as possible because we also want other platforms smaller platforms to be thinking about this as well. We want this to be on their radar in ways that it hasn't been for. Will has been on everyone's radar, but Y-, facebook and Google haven't responded. It's almost a problem that's that's so out of control. You'd have to go all the way back to square one to to start.

June saying that ever since he took on this job, he's been bleeding harassed online by a guy on Youtube Steven, crowder and Steven crowder would make these like homophobic racist ethnic. Slurs against him and he would end up being you know seeing a wall of. Harassment hatred on his instagram and twitter profiles like on a daily basis and he he brought attention to this and said you know. Youtube has a acceptable use policy dot should ban the sky from having channel, but instead he's being monetize. He's being amplified by this platform and this thing went viral. It was during pride months. You know and Youtube which had invested I. Don't know how much money and how much effort into. Changing everything to rainbows on all their social media and Sponsoring all these pride events in whatever they were faced with a very very essential problem like a very basic question.
