A neo-Nazi earned thousands from YouTube, which profited from him allowing people to promote their racist comments alongside his videos.

Mark Collett, a former British National Party (BNP) official – who previously praised Adolf Hitler and was arrested for inciting racial hatred – is one of several far-right commentators to profit from Super Chat, a revenue tool owned by Google.

Super Chat allows fans to pay for their comments to appear more prominently in the live chat next to YouTube videos and live streams.

Mr Collett has generated 95,000 subscribers and 10 million views on YouTube as a right-wing activist. His videos cover topics including “The Jewish Question Explained in 4 Minutes” and “White Genocide Explained”.

According to Storyful, Mr Collett has earned £7,265.93 from 36 videos which include livestreamed discussions with form Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke and white nationalist Richard Spencer.

Most of the money goes to Mr Collett but YouTube takes an estimated 30 per cent.
