Hate troll Matt Walsh loses YouTube & Twitter platforms partly because of his Dylan Mulvaney hatred

Notorious far-right troll Matt Walsh is having a bad week. And he can thank his obsession with trans influencer Dylan Mulvaney for Monday’s installment.

That’s when YouTube demonetized his channel on the social media platform carrying The Matt Walsh Show, which Walsh claims pulls in $100,000 a month. The reason? According to Walsh, YouTube says he violated the platform’s terms of service when he repeatedly misgendered Mulvaney, who celebrated “365 Days as a Girl” earlier this month.

Walsh has been promoting the Bud Light boycott since the beer brand entered into a partnership with the popular social media star, celebrating her milestone with a portrait on a custom tallboy.

Walsh revealed the YouTube spank on Wednesday in a speech at the University of Iowa.

The self-described “theocratic fascist” claims unnamed sources at the platform told him the decision to target him was made “at the highest levels” of the company and that “they were looking for something, a reason to take us out.”

“‘Well it’s your turn, and we’re going to look for a reason,'” Walsh whined in air quotes.

“It doesn’t seem that other channels are being held to this standard,” the transphobic host added, not saying which channels should also be demonetized.

On Tuesday, the right-wing bomb thrower’s troubles mounted when a hacker, later identified by the alias Doomed, broke into Walsh’s Twitter account and started posting what he described as “funny tweets.”

In one post directed at Ben Shapiro, Walsh’s boss and fellow right-wing troll at the Daily Wire, Doomed wrote: “You Know What You Did, You Are A Closeted Homosexual And Hide Behind Being Jewish.”

Others tweets included “Joe Rogan is a pedophile,” and “I Ain’t A Gangsta, I’ma Sassy Shoota,” a reference to the song “Sassy Shooters” by gay gangsta artist Gabriel

“The intent was to make funny tweets, as Matt Walsh likes to ‘trigger’ people,” Doomed told Wired, in a story by Dell Cameron that got the author permanently banned from Twitter for sharing the hacking story on the platform.

The magazine is appealing Cameron’s expulsion.

Walsh’s attacks on LGBTQ+ humanity are legion, from accusing LGBTQ+ people of being responsible for their own murders at mass shootings, to organizing protests with people demanding “Doctors who mutilate children should be killed.”

Walsh has spent the last year on a roadshow screening his debunked anti-trans screed What Is a Woman?

As of Wednesday, Walsh’s Twitter account was back up and running, “funny tweet”-free, as usual.

In answer to YouTube, the trans-baiting presenter says he’s collecting his toys and going home.

“As I announced during my speech tonight, YouTube has demonetized my show and threatened to ban us if we don’t respect the pronouns of trans people,” Walsh pouted. “I’d rather take my show off YouTube than cooperate with that nonsense. So I am. Starting Monday you can find my show free for everyone on Daily Wire.”

He also had a warning for Wired, and the writer who shared Walsh’s woes.

“Your reporter directly solicited stolen material from my phone. A Twitter suspension is going to be the least of his problems, and yours.”
