Hololive VTuber Kobo Kanaeru has just had their YouTube account banned after being targeted by bots as part of a wave of attacks impacting Indonesian VTube channels.

With Twitch being well accustomed to dealing with hate raids, as the problem has been a persistent issue over the past few years, others have abandoned YouTube to join the Amazon-owned platform in the hopes that they have a better appeals process.
