I doubt this is intentional in anyway. YouTube algorithms don't get everything right. It will recognize similar activities and make lists based on them. It looks to me like this started naturally based on user activity. Pretty disturbing though, hope YouTube takes action.
That said I'm not sure this is the type of news that's best catered to this site.
