When it comes to social media and censorship, YouTube is one of the most conservative platforms. YouTube frequently strikes and demonetizes videos for sexual or explicit reasons—whether that be swearing or a girl wearing a bikini. However, while most creators tend to keep their brands squeaky clean to please advertisers, others have built their brands off a past in pornography. That's right, many of your favorite YouTube creators were once porn performers and you won't believe some of their scandalous pasts. Take a look at the gallery below to learn who's guilty and let us know your thoughts in the comments section on Facebook.
