YouTube comment sections are always as fun as the videos. It is an interactive space where the viewers share their opinion and views about the video. Not all the comments seem to be useful or kind. Sometimes the comments section holds some inappropriate stuff, or we may get rude comments. In this worst-case scenario, the creator can delete those comments. Alternatively, the comment can be removed by the person who left it. If you regret posting such comments or it seems too offensive, you should know how to delete comments on YouTube. It applies to either case, and you shall read the section below further for brief information.

Note:- You cannot delete comments made by someone on other’s YouTube channels. Simultaneously, you cannot delete comments made before 2006, i.e., comments posted before Google took over YouTube.
