YouTube has terminated the account of a 14-year-old conservative YouTuber with nearly a million followers who goes by "Soph."

The channel was terminated after her latest video, full of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric, was flagged for violating the platform's hate speech policies, YouTube says.

This was Soph's third violation of YouTube's community guidelines in 90 days, which under YouTube's three-strike policy results in a channel being permanently deleted.

After her channel was terminated, Soph reportedly tweeted an image of herself holding what looked like a gun along with the caption, "youtube headquarters here I come," according to Buzzfeed.

Tweet - Joke

She later deleted the tweet and said it was a joke.

A 14-year-old far-right YouTuber with nearly a million followers has been kicked off the platform for violating its hate speech policies in a video calling the LGBTQ community pedophiles.

YouTube on Thursday terminated the channel belonging to the conservative personality, who goes only by "Soph." She's known in the far-right movement for her simple videos filmed in front of a green screen, in which what she says to the camera is often laced with derogatory and hate-fueled attacks of Muslims, immigrants, and liberals.

Video - Pride - Prejudice - Minutes - Soph

Her most recent video was called "Pride & Prejudice," and contained 13 minutes of Soph criticizing the LGBTQ community and Pride Month, which she refers to as "30 days of AIDS-carrying pedophile victims patting themselves on the back for their lifestyles."

The video also included an intro where Soph advertises her merchandise, and directs viewers to "make sure to blame me in your manifestos." Soph was likely referencing the hate speech-filled manifestos that have been found online, including the one published on messaging board 8chan by the suspect in the El Paso mass shooting this past weekend.
