UPDATE October 18, 2021: 2:52PM
The Upright Health YouTube channel has been restored. Thanks to the retweets of fans on Twitter as well as the efforts of multiple Google employees who are also fans of Upright Health, YouTube reinstated the Upright Health YouTube channel.
I am very grateful for the show of support from so many strangers, and I'm glad things got resolved quickly.
I hope that YouTube creates a better system for dealing with channel shutdowns and appeals. Having an algorithm IMMEDIATELY shut down reputable channels due to obvious hijacking without any warning or investigation leaves creators like me with a VERY sour taste in the mouth.
