DomIsLive and Kwebbelkop, both popular and prolific GTA 5 YouTubers, have had their channels suspended from the video service.


Both expressed surprise at the move, which has been swift and seemingly came without warning.

Both youTubers create videos speculating on future Grand Theft Auto content, as well as showing glitches and hacks, stunts and other footage. According to his official site, DomIsLive has worked with publishers Rockstar Games and Ubisoft in the past.

DomIsLive’s original channel was suspended in December last year, prompting him to create DomIsLive2. Between them they have over 620,000 subscribers, but both have been suspended today. On Kwebbelkop’s Twitter page he claims to have over 800,000 subscribers on YouTube.

YouTube hasn’t given a particular reason for suspension, only stating: “This account has been suspended due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, gaming, misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.”

In his last update via twitter, DomIsLive said he was hoping to have his channels back and live on YouTube shortly.
