Is Anyone Surprised? YouTube Had to Deal With an ‘Unprecedented Volume’ of Violent Videos After Christchurch Terrorist Attack

The Washington Post has reported that YouTube dealt with an “unprecedented volume” of violent videos after last week’s terrorist attack in New Zealand.

On Friday, a gunman murdered 50 worshippers at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. Currently, 35 more are hospitalized with 12 in critical condition, including a 4-year-old-girl. In an appalling act of cruelty, the murders were recorded and posted to social media channels around the world. As the news unfolded, the footage spread at an alarming rate. After the weekend, Facebook has reported that they removed an astonishing 1.5 million videos of the attack in just 24 hours.

Although YouTube has not made an official statement about how many videos have been moderated, the company said they have experienced an unprecedented volume of violent content. According to The Washington Post, moderators worked through the night to remove tens of thousands of videos of the terrorist attack. In an interview with The Post, chief product officer Neal Mohan said that some uploads were altered to prevent automated tools from spotting the footage.

Reports suggest that copies of the video were being added as fast as one per second. Eventually, this drove the streaming site to disable some search options to control the problem. In addition, they also shut down some human review features to speed up the process. However, by Friday, they had no choice but to send newsworthy clips via human moderators to check for violence or disturbing imagery.

Since the shootings last week, the entire world has been united in shock and sadness. The assailant, Brenton Harrison Tarrant, appeared in court on Saturday. The Australian citizen did not make a plea, but flashed a white supremacist hand signal.
In response to the attack, US Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said:

“We, too, have seen the face of such evil with attacks in places such as Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, and Charleston. And in the wake of the New Zealand tragedy, I want to make one thing very clear: We will not permit such hate in the homeland.”

However, unlike the United States, New Zealand’s government has made decisive moves to reform gun laws in the country. In a statement, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said:

“We have listened to public sentiment following Friday’s terrorist attack in Christchurch and decided to remove all semi-automatic firearms sales and parts associated.”

Meanwhile, social media giants are facing new challenges about how to moderate violent or disturbing content. While most services agree that this was an unusual incident, the spread of the Christchurch footage has led to calls for companies to do more to protect users from hateful and violent material.

Roger Mathews Claims J-Woww Is Lying About Abuse – Claims She Has Always Been The Violent One

According to a report from Us Weekly, Roger Mathews recently took to his personal website to release a long article about what he considers to be the truth of the matter regarding his bitter – and very public – fight with his estranged wife, Jenni “JWoww” Farley.

In a post encompassing 6,000 words, Roger accused the reality star of lying about physical violence in their relationship, placing the blame on her for what he describes as abuse. The reality star, Roger, said in his blog post that he wonders why nobody ever asked him about the supposed abuse he inflicted on her.

The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star accused his estranged spouse of bragging about stabbing both of her ex-boyfriends, as well as being the “true aggressor” in their altercations. Roger accused JWoww of even punching him in the face one night.

Moreover, Mathews claimed that the 32-year-old reality star threw a candle as well as a vacuum cleaner at not only him but their two-year-old son, Greyson. However, Roger did admit to shoving her on several occasions but claims his actions were in retaliation against her aggression.

According to Roger, there were moments in their marriage that were truly a “nightmare.” The reality star supposedly has incriminating footage of JWoww but has chosen not to release it because he feels it’s “ethically wrong.”

Roger went on to say that he is not the monster she has portrayed him to be. The reality star’s post went on in the same vein for literally thousands of words, accusing Farley of being the abusive one in the relationship, and in general, offering his side to the story.

As it was reported previously, Farley and Roger’s situation has been quite nasty for the last few months, following Farley’s filing for divorce last year in September after just a three-year marriage. On the 30th of January, Jenni accused Roger of being abusive on her own website.

Furthermore, she released footage online in which it appeared as though Roger shoved her. Mathews accused JWoww of “playing the victim” in the situation.
