SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Over the course of three months, YouTube says it took down millions of videos that violated its community guidelines.

In a report published Monday, the company said it removed over 8 million videos between October and December 2017.

YouTube said many of those videos were spam or people trying to upload adult content to the site.

And the vast majority of the offending videos were flagged by computers, not by humans.

YouTube's report comes as the company continues to face criticism over how it handles offensive content on its platform.
