Navy SEAL who 'outed' Nathan Phillips' military record post-Covington claims YouTube retaliated, banned him


February 28, 2019

A retired Navy SEAL who claims to have outed Covington viral video figure and Native American activist Nathan Phillips for masquerading “as a Vietnam vet” now says he believes YouTube removed his popular account weeks afterward in an act of retaliation.

The comments from Don Shipley come after his “Buds131” account was banned from the video-sharing site on Feb. 21. Shipley started the account in 2008 to expose cases of Stolen Valor, in which people impersonate being U.S. service members, and it is reported to have amassed more than 230,000 subscribers.
