Youtube called out for posting uncredited video on Twitter

On Christmas, Youtube posted a cool dominos video on its official Twitter account.


However, a few people recognized the video as being the work of Lily Hevesh (Hevesh5), a Youtuber who specializes on intricate dominos designs. Not only did Youtube not credit her in the tweet, they actually cropped out her intro and outro.


Hevesh became aware of the tweet, and started posting about it.




Eventually, Hank Green caught wind of what happened and tweeted about it.


Then Youtube FINALLY tweeted an apology (although obviously the original tweet was never removed).




tl;dr: Youtube is trash, water is wet, the pope poops in the woods.
