YouTube has caused quite the stir after people discovered that their ‘restricted mode’ blocks LGBT+ content.

Although the website has since apologised and set out to make changes, it’s taking longer than people hoped.

One person not happy with Youtube is Zara Larsson who slammed the website for blocking the video to her hit single Symphony with Clean Bandit.

The video, which doesn’t contain any nudity or swearing, simply shows a gay man struggling with the death of his boyfriend after a hit-and-run accident.

Zara tweeted: “Is this shit for real” alongside an image showing the video being blocked when restricted mode is turned on.

Following the huge backlash over their restricted mode, YouTube released a statement (21/03/17) saying: “We recognise that some videos are incorrectly labelled by our automated system and we realise it’s very important to get this right. We’re working hard to make some improvements.”
