Egypt arrested 13 men in connection with sexual assaults. But Egyptian President Sissi also asked YouTube to remove a video showing a woman being sexually assaulted in Tahrir Square. Why YouTube has refused.
YouTube has refused to remove a video showing an Egyptian woman being sexually assaulted.
That’s a difficult call, but probably the right one.
Imagine the negative global reaction if YouTube – which is owned by Google, Inc. – had acquiesced to Egyptian officials. YouTube would have been accused of helping to cover up Egypt’s sexual assault problem: An estimated 250 women have been subjected to mob sexual harassment or assaults during demonstrations in Tahrir Square since November 2012.
