YouTube announced today that it would be removing British rapper M.I.A.’s new music video, ‘Born Free’, from the site. The nine minute long video clip features gun-toting soldiers capturing and executing redheads in an extremely graphic nature, nudity, and profane language. A YouTube spokesperson said, “On YouTube the rules prohibit content like pornography or gratuitous violence. If the content breaks our terms then we remove it.” M.I.A.’s video clearly broke YouTube’s terms and is therefore suffering the consequences.
