Belle Delphine is back — again.
Back in November 2020, the cosplay model, gamer girl and notorious hawker of bathwater took to Twitter to claim that her popular YouTube channel was terminated for supposedly violating the platform's sexual content policy.

"Why was my YouTube account terminated with no warning/no strikes for 'sexual content' when you allow and promote songs like 'WAP?,'" Belle Delphine wrote alongside screenshots comparing her "I'm Back" video with a Nicki Minaj music video. "Seems a lil sus."
In response to her online complaint, Team YouTube replied that they would "take a look." However, the social media star — who reportedly had 1.79 million YouTube subscribers at the time of her account's deletion — went on to tell fellow YouTuber Kavos via Twitter DM that she thought the surprise deletion was "pretty shitty" as it "went from nothing to straight up ban."
"I had no strikes either," she explained, referring to the YouTube policy that gives content creators three "strikes" before terminating their channel. And while YouTube "didn't say which videos [caused the ban] in particular," Belle Delphine went on to add that it happened a couple of days after her latest upload, which only received a warning that didn't even technically count as a strike.
"I'm fine with YouTube removing that video though, it was super nsfw, but to remove my whole channel with no warning is extreme," she continued. "I wasn't even going to post shit like that anymore to YouTube so that's a bummer. Not even allowed to make a new YouTube account I already tried."
That said, YouTube quickly reinstated her account after responding to her tweet, writing that the deletion was "a mistake by the review team" and apologizing "for the frustration this caused."
Glad you saw your account has been reinstated. The termination was a mistake by the review team – we’re so sorry for the frustration this caused. We’ve sent you an email with more info.— TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) November 24, 2020
Soon enough though, Delphine ended up disappearing once again, though this time it seemed to be on her own accord.
Following her highly successful OnlyFans debut — which netted her a cool £1 million — fans began to wonder where she’d gone in late 2021 after not posting to any of her social media accounts in months. But in April 2022, Delphine resurfaced via Twitter with a set of photos captioned, “Damn, time flies when ur rich.” She then went on to explain in a follow-up tweet that she was “in all seriousness… glad to be back and seeing all your familiar faces again.”

“The internet has always been such a big part of my life and this past year I feel like I've missed... A LOT," Delphine continued. “Guess I've got some catching up to do!?”
