Hello and welcome to the forum Pina!

From http://bahai-library.com/uhj/photo.bahaullah.html :

"...it is indeed disturbing to Baha'is to have the image of Baha'u'llah treated in such a disrespectful way. However, as the creator of the site is not a Baha'i, there is little, if anything, that can be done to address this matter."


Of course, Youtube is a public website (like Wikipedia, for example), so it is possible that someone could try to report the site as offensive, though I'd be skeptical that they would respect this either since for Youtube too, "the creator of the site is not a Baha'i".

all the best,
Brett

And if you were interested, there's also this statement in general about use of the photographs of Baha'u'llah (though not related to others posting them):
