In a bizarre turn of events, Oppo India’s YouTube channel was terminated on Monday during the live stream of its much-anticipated launch event. YouTube pulled down the channel citing a violation of its terms of service. The message on the screen read- “This account has been terminated for violating YouTube’s terms of service.”
The action was apparently taken after Oppo compared its Reno 8 Series with Apple’s iPhone. The brand is yet to react to the development.
