The Communications and Information Ministry has warned Indonesian gaming YouTuber Kimi Hime that it would take down “vulgar” content on her YouTube channel.
The ministry said it had summoned Kimi via email and Instagram direct message on Monday.
“We have requested that Kimi Hime come to the ministry’s office. If she does not come soon, we will take down her content that we deem vulgar,” acting head of the ministry's public relations bureau, Ferdinand Setu, said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.
He said that Kimi had yet to respond.
“She should have read our email by Monday. If she responds, then she should immediately come to our office so we can ask her about some content on her account that is quite vulgar,” he said.
“We want to take down some of her content, not her account. We have prepared [which content needs to be taken down],” he said.
He said the ministry would still give Kimi some time to respond to its request. “At least within this week."
Ferdinand added that the ministry had received reports, including from several members of the House of Representatives, requesting to take down some of Kimi Hime’s vulgar content.
“Commission I of the House requested that we take action [regarding Kimi Hime],” Ferdinand said.
