A YouTube vlogger has been banned from the site after viewers of one of her videos complained that it was "blatantly racist" and "deliberately insulting to black men". The vlogger who is white and an avid dog lover and who goes by the YouTube name Becky the canine lover had posted a video of one of her dogs - a black Labrador Retriever doing tricks. The problem? She named the dog Othello - the black main character from the Shakespeare play. In the video Becky is seen with the dog in a park where she continually commands him by name to do the tricks like fetch, beg, roll-over and play dead and he promptly obeys.

Although the video got over one thousand likes, by contrast it got over ten thousand dislikes. One YouTuber going by the name SexyShaunte commented:

"So out of all the names she could have named the dog she chose no other name than that of a black character? This is the way these white bitches feel about you brothers. You are all dogs to them. I honestly don't know why weak brothers constantly chase after them when they have absolutely no qualms showing up their inherently racist nature. This hoe is blatantly racist and deliberately insulting to black men."

Another commentator going by the name Daquan1989 remarked:

"I wish that I could meet this Becky bitch personally so that I could punch her in the face. These pale skin cave bitches are always looking to stir up trouble by doing shit like this. Even up to this day black men are treated as dogs in AmeriKKKa. Becky's video couldn't have been more symbolic about the current racial situation in the country."

He ended by saying:

"But I blame Trump for all of this. I would stop short of calling him President because he sure as hell ain't my President. His rise to power has emboldened racists like Becky and the millions like her. Not to mention the Joshes who they love so much and who still see us black people as less than human which is somewhat ironic seeing that we were the first humans on earth and they are all Neanderthals who haven't fully evolved."

Thankfully the YouTube account of Becky the canine lover has since been terminated due to the outrage.

I've laughed, I've cried, I've lived... and I've died. But this still beats all those experiences. Have a feeling this sort of thing might just take over my entire life. :)
