Note from Steve Rothaus: The Mac Observer reported Saturday that YouTube briefly pulled the video.

[Update: YouTube has restored the video, and it is once again viewable. Note that neither YouTube nor It Gets Better responded to our request for comment. Readers in the comments below noted that videos automatically get pulled on YouTube if enough complaints are registered, where it is then reviewed by YouTube staff. Whatever the case, it is once against available. - Editor]

YouTube has pulled a video made by Apple employees for the “It Gets Better” project, replacing it with a still image that said the video violated “YouTube’s policy on depiction of harmful activities.” The video included testimonials and stories from gay, lesbian, and transgender Apple employees with the theme that though they were bullied when they were young, things got better, which is what the It Gets Better project is about.
