Belle Delphine has officially returned to YouTube.
Belle Delphine has had her YouTube channel reinstated after the platform terminated her account for violating its policy on "nudity and sexual content".
On Monday (Nov 23), fans noticed that Belle's account had disappeared from YouTube. Instead, the message: "This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy on nudity or sexual content," stood in its place.
Belle was incredibly upset about the deletion of her account and said she had received "no warning/strikes" before her account was removed. YouTube has a three-strike policy before it permanently deletes a channel unless the video has severely breached their policy.

Several YouTubers, content creators and fans supported Belle and complained that they had had the same issue. They even started the hashtag #UnbanBelleDelphine and Belle's name was trending on Twitter.
She tweeted: "Thankyou SO much to everybody who has stood up for me. @TeamYouTube please explain to me why i was banned when i have done nothing different to 'WAP'. This is my entire career."

Belle Delphine getting banned on youtube is seriously messed up. Nobody should support that shit. The double standard of Youtube when the videos they've had on their FRONT page is on equal if not worse than Belle's music videos makes zero sense to me.— Repzion (@DDsulzbach) November 23, 2020

Apparently you can only have sexualized music videos if you’re part of the music industry.
