Bryson Gray’s song “Let’s Go Brandon” suffered a quick ban from YouTube on Thursday for allegedly carrying “medical misinformation,” and then removed from Instagram on Sunday for breaking restrictions about “harmful false information.”
“Let’s Go Brandon” has become a popular anti-President Joe Biden chant following a recent NASCAR race in which an NBC reporter falsely reported fans were cheering on the race victor, Brandon Brown, when in fact they were yelling “F*** Joe Biden.”
“YouTube has banned ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ song from YouTube due to ‘medical information,’” Gray posted to Twitter. “What medical misinformation is in the song? Whoa.”
According to Fox News, the artist said that the lyric version of the video was first banned, “but then the actual music video was taken down,” too.

After Gray tweeted about the ban, YouTube tech support said they would “re-review” the matter — but Gray has still not heard back.
“Jumping in – we’re passing this along to the right team for a re-review,” the reply said. “We’ll share updates once we hear back from them. Appreciate your patience in the meantime.”
Following the ban, Gray’s song shot to the top of the iTunes charts on Sunday morning, according to PopVortex rankings. Ironically, Gray won the number one place after learning that Instagram had reportedly blocked his song as well.
“WE DID IT. FROM BANNED ON YOUTUBE TO PASSING ADELE ON THE ITUNES CHARTS TO BECOME THE #1 SONG IN THE COUNTRY!” he posted to Twitter. “Stop being afraid of censorship. Stop being afraid to be canceled. STAND UP. Thank y’all so much! KEEP IT GOING!”
In a follow-up post, he noted the Instagram block, writing, “Haha cute but it’s too late.”

“Why is the most censored rapper in the country someone that doesn’t even curse in songs?” Gray told Fox News.
On the rapper’s album, “Letters to the Church,” he says via Twitter that he uses “No profanity. No unbiblical ideas. Every word is based on scripture.”
“Why can you rap about murder, sex, and drugs but when I rap about questioning the government I get banned? Is this still America?” Gray questioned.
