First they came for his YouTube monetization. Then they came for the t-shirts.

Comedian Steven Crowder has been under almost constant attack from YouTube and the legacy media over the last 24 hours. Now the ecommerce platform Shopify appears to have joined in by reportedly removing the iconic “Socialism Is For Figs” t-shirt from Crowder’s store.

The t-shirt, along with many YouTube creators, appears to be a victim of the fallout from the latest YouTube adpocalypse which started after YouTube rolled out new “hate speech” rules. YouTube introduced these new rules after Vox host and writer Carlos Maza called for Crowder’s YouTube channel to be censored.

After rolling out the new rules, YouTube informed Maza that Crowder’s YouTube channels had been fully demonetized. However, Maza wasn’t satisfied with YouTube’s action and set his sights on Crowder’s “Socialism Is For Figs” t-shirt.

YouTube continued to attempt to appease Maza and said that one of the requirements for Crowder’s channel regaining monetization is that he removes the “Socialism Is For Figs” t-shirt.

However, Maza still wasn’t happy and continued to complain and swear at YouTube.

YouTube then further clarified its stance on the t-shirt and Crowder’s channel monetization.

Shortly after this incident with the t-shirt, Crowder said on his latest live stream that the “Socialism Is For Figs” t-shirt had been removed by Shopify and it can no longer be seen in his Shopify store. Shopify hasn’t commented on the t-shirt but given the timing, it appears that the increased attention from Maza and the adpocalypse has led to Shopify taking the t-shirt down.
