Why is Cristiano Ronaldo barred from creating YouTube channel?

Interestingly, Ronaldo's massive social media following plays a crucial role in this unusual prohibition. With over 900 million followers across various platforms, he is the most-followed person globally

Cristiano Ronaldo in a bizarre turn of events is not allowed to open a YouTube channel. Ronaldo’s endorsement deals with major brands such as Binance, Erakulis, Nike, Herbalife, Clear Haircare, and Whoop further bolster his income. Despite his overwhelming fame and fortune, there’s an intriguing, lesser-known fact about Ronaldo: he is prohibited from creating a YouTube channel. This restriction has piqued the curiosity of many fans, leading to much speculation about the reasons behind it.

Ronaldo boasts an astounding net worth of approximately $260 million. This immense fortune cements his status as the world’s highest-paid athlete for the fourth time. A significant portion of his income, around $200 million annually (approximately Rs 2,100 crore), stems from his lucrative contract with Al Nassr, a club in the Saudi Pro League. Moreover, Ronaldo’s social media presence, especially on Instagram, contributes significantly to his earnings. In 2023, reports indicated that he charged a staggering $3.23 million (Rs 26 crore) per Instagram post.

Interestingly, Ronaldo’s massive social media following plays a crucial role in this unusual prohibition. With over 900 million followers across various platforms, he is the most-followed person globally. Reports suggest that the 39-year-old cannot start a YouTube channel because his immense popularity could overwhelm the platform, potentially straining its financial resources due to the sheer volume of subscribers and views he would attract.

Ronaldo banned from TikTok as well

In 2023, Ronaldo ventured into TikTok, rapidly amassing millions of followers and generating millions of views with his videos. However, his account was eventually banned without a clear explanation. Rumors suggest that TikTok could not sustain the financial impact of Ronaldo’s presence, which lends credence to the notion that he is similarly restricted from YouTube.

Nevertheless, Ronaldo’s fans can still follow him on other social media platforms. He boasts more than 633 million followers on Instagram, 112 million on X (formerly Twitter), and 170 million on Facebook. These platforms offer fans ample opportunities to stay updated on Ronaldo’s personal life and illustrious career, even in the absence of a YouTube or TikTok presence.
