On the March 16 edition of Louder with Crowder, streamed on YouTube, host Steven Crowder and his co-hosts engaged in a racist segment about Black farmers for which they were widely condemned. Later that day, Bloomberg reported that the entire video was removed from YouTube for violating the platform’s coronavirus content policies.
During the March 17 YouTube livestream, even though Crowder himself was absent from the show, his guest host Dave Landau and other co-hosts doubled down on the show’s racism, transphobia, and general bigotry.
Landau and co-hosts went after Elliot Page for public comments Page made regarding his transgender identity. The crew continuously misgendered Page, and Landau remarked, “The breasts will be auctioned off on eBay.” After this, Landau mocked Marvel Comics’ announcement of a new gay Captain America character, suggesting that the character will contract AIDS.
During a segment in which the crew was dismissing the ethnic cleansing of Native Americans in North America, guest Darrin Crowder, who is Steven Crowder’s father, said that Native Americans were incapable of advancing as a society: “Somebody is going to come over here and clash with a society of pantheists that couldn't possibly advance. Their world couldn’t advance. So somebody was going to make sure that that happened.”
Landau called a new video from the band Rage Against the Machine “anti-white.”
The co-hosts turned the blame for slavery upon Africans who sold slaves to Europeans while downplaying America’s role in the slave trade.
