YouTube reinstated the page for a conservative family group in Washington, D.C. after briefly suspending it on Monday, provoking backlash from Republicans.
The company said in a statement that the group, the American Principles Project, was suspended for sharing a video featuring former White House adviser Steve Bannon, whose War Room podcast YouTube banned without explanation in January.
The group’s president, Terry Schilling, attributed the move to a video his group shared in July promoting its “Big Family” project, which is centered on traditional values. “Hey looks like @Google shutdown @approject’s @YouTube page over this video,” Shilling wrote on Twitter. “Pretty obnoxious [to be honest]. No warning, no explanation, nothing. These people are evil.”
