YouTube Remove Advert For The Nun Because It’s Too Scary
YouTube has removed an advert for The Nun because it's seriously scary and it breached its 'shocking content' policy.
The six-second teaser advert starts with a volume sign decreasing until it reaches mute, before the nun jumps out looking pretty horrifying, and basically scares the living daylights out of everyone. It's certainly not for the faint-hearted, that's for sure.
One person tweeted: "WARNING! If you see an ad on youtube with the volume sign being turned down and nothing else, ITS A JUMPSCARE for the new NUN movie coming out. I advise you look away and/or turn down the volume if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares, pls rt to save a life [sic]."

YouTube responded by removing the ad, saying it violated the sites 'shocking content policy'.
The video streaming site replied: "Appreciate you bringing this to our attention! This ad violates our shocking content policy and it's no longer running as an ad. More info here: https://goo.gl/Yo1GHL."
"We value diversity and respect for others, and we strive to avoid offending or shocking users with ads, websites, or apps that are inappropriate for our ad network," reads the platform's 'shocking content' policy.
"Here are some examples of content that we consider or may be violent or shocking: Profane language, violent language, discriminatory terms or imagery, gruesome imagery, graphic images or accounts of physical trauma, gratuitous bodily fluids or waste, promotions that are likely to shock or scare, promotions that are capitalizing on sensitive events."
The ad may have been removed but you can still watch the full trailer for the frightening flick - that's if you dare.
The Nun is the second terrifying spin-off from The Conjuring after Annabel: The Creation.
You'll be able to watch the film in cinemas from 7th September, if you're brave enough.
