In case you missed it, Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai has vanished. Or, rather, she’s been vanished:
The vanishing of Peng Shuai: Oliver Bateman on the tennis player taking on the CCP, and China's attempts to make her disappear https://t.co/tDenWBRsqL

From the Washington Examiner:
In a detailed social media post on Nov. 2, Peng Shuai , a 20-year fixture on the Women’s Tennis Association tour and former top-ranked doubles player, leveled an accusation of sexual assault against a man with whom she had a decadelong affair. Within 30 minutes, the post was gone, and Peng hasn’t made a public statement since.
Peng’s disappearance doesn’t seem to have registered with the NBA (Enes Kanter’s the only player with balls, so to speak), but the tennis world is another story. Many tennis stars are using their platforms to raise awareness of Peng’s disappearance as well as of the CCP’s cruelty:
The number of tennis players sharing the #WhereIsPengShuai hashtag is growing quickly today, including from the ATP side.
Heartening to see so many in tennis willing to put concern for Peng Shuai’s well being over cynical business interests. A model for other sports re: China. pic.twitter.com/Z3zVACBZyC

Compare that refusal to cower in the face of the Chinese government with the abject spinelessness on display by YouTube:

Evidently YouTube has a major problem with Saagar Enjeti and Krystal Ball discussing Peng’s disappearance on a platform where the ChiComs could find out and get very offended:
Sorry @YouTube. We meant to say Peng Shaui is safe and sound and just can't wait for the Olympics in China which ofc is the best country in the world!

This is craven. Pathetic. Shameful. Disgusting.

What does YouTube stand for if they’re completely bent over for the CCP?

Censorship and manipulation happen when all you can know is what someone else decides what you should know. https://t.co/lYRDmRBGKA

This is outrageous. Google is suppressing American journalists on behalf of the CCP. https://t.co/gkvIzt8B0p

Because YouTube thinks they’ll be safe under the CCP’s thumb.
Is YouTube even capable of standing up to China at this point? It doesn’t seem that way.
I have YouTube Premium… Darn, I don't understand the video, I'll just loop it 100x to fully understand the content.

Better make it a million, just to be sure.
