Making "negative comments" about someone and hurting their feelings may get your channel shut down on YouTube.

From YouTube's new "Harassment and cyberbullying" policy:

We want you to use YouTube without fear of being subjected to malicious harassment. In cases where harassment crosses the line into a malicious attack it can be reported and will be removed. In other cases, users may be mildly annoying or petty and should simply be ignored.

Harassment may include:

Abusive videos, comments, messages
Revealing someone’s personal information
Maliciously recording someone without their consent
Deliberately posting content in order to humiliate someone
Making hurtful and negative comments/videos about another person
Unwanted sexualization, which encompasses sexual harassment or sexual bullying in any form
Incitement to harass other users or creators
