A transgender video chat user filed a lawsuit against the popular video site on Monday, saying she was sexually harassed and bullied by other users of the site and other videos.
In her lawsuit, which was filed in California Superior Court, Brittany Lee, an Austin, Texas, resident who identifies as a lesbian, claims she was subjected to the following types of harassment and bullying: “harassment and bullying by the people who created the content” of her videos and other online content that was shared with the public, according to the lawsuit.
She also alleged that the company failed to take action to stop the harassment and harassment she received.
The lawsuit says the harassment started in August 2015, when a user named Brittany Lee posted an online video about the “LGBTQ” video chat service she had been using.
The video was removed from the site after it was viewed more than 40 million times.
The company later apologized, saying the video was a mistake and had been removed from its site.
A year later, Lee posted another video about “straight” sex with her partner, saying her partner was gay.
YouTube removed the video, and a company representative apologized to Lee.
But in March, a YouTube employee posted a video about a new feature in the YouTube video app that allowed users to share videos from other users that they found offensive, according, the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
That video has since been viewed nearly 3.3 million times, according.
Lee is now suing YouTube for defamation, copyright infringement and breach of contract.
She is seeking unspecified damages.
The suit does not include specific details of the harassment she alleges was perpetrated.
In a statement emailed to Reuters, a representative for YouTube said the company “takes allegations of this nature extremely seriously.”
“We are working with the lawsuit and have begun an investigation to determine if any further action is necessary, and will cooperate with authorities if warranted,” the statement said.
“This case highlights the need for us to protect users of YouTube’s service from harassment and abuse.”
A spokesperson for YouTube, however, did not respond to requests for comment on Lee’s claims.
The LGBT video chat feature was introduced in August 2016, a year after YouTube launched the video site, which is available to all users.
YouTube has not commented on the lawsuit but told Reuters it does not comment on pending litigation.
Google, which owns YouTube, is owned by Alphabet Inc.
The feature allows users to watch videos posted by other people who share their interests and preferences.
The feature has come under increasing scrutiny over the past year after videos shared by gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people and other minorities have sparked protests, boycotts and even legal action against YouTube.
