Before this, YouTube has only allowed profanity words that are considered light such as “hell” or “damn” when it comes to monetized videos. Now it seems that they will be more lenient in accepting words such as “s**t” and “b***h” in the first 30 seconds of a video.

  • Recreational drugs and drug-related content
  • Documentary or news content that may include violent interactions with law enforcement
  • Controversial issues where non-graphic, objective discussions of controversial issues are in the video
