Thom Yorke Likens YouTube To Nazi’s

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has launched an astonishing attack on social media phenomenon YouTube.

Radiohead Frontman Yorke is well known for his dislike of streaming platform Spotify but it seems that Yorke has a special hatred for youTube.  According to Consequence of Sound Yorke likens the practices of YouTube and its parent company Google to that of Nazi Germany.

“All I know is that they make money from the work of many artists who do not derive any benefit. Service providers make money: Google, YouTube. A lot of money. ‘Oh, sorry, it was yours? Now it is ours. No, no, we are joking, it is always yours,’ They seize it. It’s like what the Nazis did during the Second World War. In fact they all did that during the war, the British too: steal the art from other countries. What’s the difference?”

Musically was less that enamoured with Yorke’s drawing comparisons with the Nazi’s and called it the “inappropriate comparison of the year”.
