A content creator is fighting with YouTube over a recently uploaded Mega Man 2 speedrun documentary. Initially, Google’s streaming platform restricted the documentary due to excessive profanity, but has since maintained this restriction for violating its “Sex and Nudity Policy”. To be clear, the documentary does not contain either.
