Dan Bongino tells YouTube where to ‘plant a big wet kiss’ after they suspend his account

Fox Nation and syndicated radio host Dan Bongino went full Hulk on social media Friday after he was suspended by Google’s YouTube under their Covid-19 misinformation policy.

Bongino’s account was suspended for a week on a first strike offense for violating the company’s prohibition on claiming that masks are ineffective—despite the CDC’s recent admission that cloth masks simply don’t work as well against the virus.

A spokesperson for YouTube told Forbes that the channel, which boasts about 870,000 subscribers, was also demonetized and removed from the company’s Partner Program for a month for “repeatedly violating our Advertiser-Friendly Guidelines on harmful and dangerous acts.”

Following the suspension, the Bongino Report account on Twitter posted a screenshot of his angry email to YouTube. The rage was palpable, as Bongino vowed to continue to violate the policy upon his account’s restoration.

“If I said I was surprised here I’d be lying,” said Bongino of his suspension. “We knew it was just a matter of time before the tyrannical, free-speech hating, bullsh-t, big tech sh-thole you work for, would try to silence us. I anxiously waited for this moment, however, as I’ve said on my show many times.”

Bongino cited Rumble, a popular free-speech alternative to YouTube, saying he has many more subscribers there. Bongino is an investor in Rumble, which is currently basking in the free publicity his “anxiously” awaited suspension is bringing to them.

“After your ‘suspension,’ I will immediately post content questioning why masks have been totally ineffective in stopping this pandemic,” taunted Bongino. “I dare you to do something about it.”

No doubt, the response may swiftly be another suspension, but the threat of being canceled isn’t fazing Bongino.

“Respectfully kiss my a–,” Bongino concluded in his letter to YouTube.

It was a mic drop heard ’round the Twitterverse.

In subsequent tweets, the Bongino Report account sparred with liberals and media members reacting to his rant.

To its many fans, ‘The Bongino Report’ signed off Friday night with this triumphant message of gratitude: “Thank you all! We kicked the sh-t out of YouTube today. We couldn’t be prouder to fight this fight with you. More big news this week on this victory. It was a good day. Goodnight!”

Bongino has locked horns in a public battle with Cumulus Media over their mask and vaccine policies and his future with the radio giant remains up in the air. What is certain to all, including Cumulus and YouTube, is, regardless of which platform Bongino calls home, his loyal listeners will enthusiastically follow, if only to cheer him on.
