YouTuber Stephan “SteveWillDoIt” Deleonardi’s channel has been permanently deleted.

The NELK Boys member has allegedly violated the video platform’s Community Guidelines, leading to a permanent channel ban. This came as a surprise to his 4 million subscribers, with few expecting to see the popular YouTuber deleted on August 1.

SteveWillDoIt is known for his over-the-top personality and pranks. As part of the NELK Boys, a Canadian YouTube channel, he would take part in challenges, vlogs, and pranks with other popular YouTubers. He’s been making videos since 2015, but is reported to have made most of his money from online gambling sponsors and being part of Full Send Entertainment.

Why was SteveWillDoIt banned from YouTube?

SteveWillDoIt reached out to YouTube in June to find out what happened to his YouTube channel and why it was banned. He told YouTube he didn’t break any guidelines. YouTube actually responded on Twitter, telling Steve that he should have received an email with details about the ban and how to get it resolved “if you think it was a mistake.”

SteveWillDoIt shared a screenshot of the email he received, which stated that he had “severe or repeated violations” of YouTube’s Community Guidelines. This led to his channel being removed, with YouTube explaining that the site needs to be a “safe place for all.”

The email didn’t give any specific information about the ban, so it’s still unclear what Steve’s violations were. It’s possible it’s the result of a recent prank video, but so far it’s not known what led to the permanent YouTube channel deletion.

On Instagram, fans went wild at the news. Many called for a boycott on YouTube. Some told Steve to create his own video site in response.

For now, SteveWillDoIt is permanently banned from YouTube. It’s unclear what his next move will be.

What is SteveWillDoIt’s net worth?

SteveWillDoIt is said to have a net worth of between $3.5 million and $4 million. He has made most of his money as part of the NELK Boys, although not in the way one would necessarily think.

The squad has stated in the past that it doesn’t make a lot of money on YouTube and has branched out into other things. In January 2022, the NELK Boys made $23 million from their own NFT collection.
