The Right Opinion - Why YouTube's Most Hated Father Will Never Go Away - DaddyOFive | TRO

Intro:

Because my friends, we are once again going back to a blast from the past, but we shall begin with a little anecdote as always, because I have actually made a video on DaddyOFive, although, no-one has ever seen it. You see, as an artist, if that’s what you can call my work, I have started, scripted, and worked on many videos that will probably never see the light of day, that is the case for pretty much everyone in the creative industry, it’s about running with a lot of ideas, some of which don’t work, sometimes you’ll realise these ideas don’t work three lines into scripting them, sometimes you’ll realise they don’t work three years after you uploaded them. That is the life of the miserable creator.

However, the DaddyOFive video was a classic case of changing circumstances, I had the video, uploaded it to YouTube, was ready to drop some very stinging criticism of him, had a big, saucy thumbnail, and suddenly this video dropped.

And I felt the circumstances had changed, the thing about DaddyOFive, is that it was a situation that greatly put his children in the spotlight, and regardless of whether they were sincere about this apology or not, I was not going to continue to drag them for something in which they had shown a motivation to change philosophy, and their approach to parenting. There were children involved, and the apology video changed the context to the point where I no longer felt confident in my upload. Now that the dust has settled, hopefully I can quell my allergic reaction, as well as look at the situation and the legacy with fresh eyes. What was he apologising for? Well I’ll dive into the devil in the details in a bit, but he was facing down a number of serious allegations, and evidence that the creation of his content was being elicited through his children, something not to be taken lightly at all.

He was terminated by the YouTube Gods, for his transgressions, and likely because the media were picking up on it and YouTube’s relationship with the media is rocky, and no compromises can be taken when it comes to their reputation, to say the least, and we as human beings, continued with our daily lives, so why bring it back now? Well for a few reasons, the first one being, some cheeky twats over on my Twitter, tagged me in a thread, asking me to cover it. Now, I want to make this clear, I do not often take requests, but if there’s enough meat on the bone, I’ll throw myself into the ring, the only reason I’m saying this is because last time I credited someone’s request I was bombarded with requests of the newest naughty YouTuber, and I only have so much time on this planet. I’m not saying don’t send me spicy news on people, I’m just saying don’t get your hopes up. So I was mulling on this for a while, and then I saw my good acquaintance Primink’s video, which reignited my passion for the whole debacle. Because although the barebones information was something that I was aware of, seeing someone expressing their opinion on it, and seeing the sphere of debate thrive interested me further, and then the fact that DaddyOFive threw a tantrum in response, made me think that maybe there’s a bit more to this story than we give it credit for. Because, the story on the headlines is that DaddyOFive is back! Back in what way? Has he had his channel restored? Is he returning to some old ways? Well, no not really.

You see, DaddyOFive never technically left, in fact, they were on YouTube until a few months back, in which YouTube, decided that they’d had enough of that platform as well, and chucked them off, in which there was a very emotional video uploaded onto another channel where they pled with the viewers to save them, alas, their tears fell upon the frosty heart of the viewer. But a few months later, they are once again back, as Primink documents, but not exactly, you see, their children now have a channel in which they create their own content, which the DaddyOFive claims to be not associated at all. This channel is known as The Martin Boys, which is comprised of the three remaining siblings, after the biological mother of Cody, and Emma regained custody, there aren’t too many indications of where this channel is going exactly to be about, but one can assume it won’t be too sinister given how I’m sure the Martin family are aware they are on thin ice.

Nonetheless, it seems there are some questions about the ethics of this whole debacle, with DaddyOFive positioning himself as a staunch defender of the lad’s rights to do what they want while also decrying any association with it. This has opened another debate about the whole morality of it, and frankly I find it all a bit messy.

The State of fouseyTUBE - The Sad Truth Behind It All | TRO

The State of fouseyTUBE - The Sad Truth Behind It All | TRO

The Right Opinion: The State of fouseyTUBE - The Truth Behind It All | TRO Intro: Go back a couple years, and YouTuber, Colossal is Crazy, you know, the one you lot won’t stop comparing me to, released his long overdue video on FouseyTUBE, named, an alternate reality. I was just initiating my interest into commentary, I’d had a YouTube channel for about six months, but I’d been stuck in a bit of a rut and the videos I made were very niche. People had messaged me from time to time, saying, “Oh my God, you sound like Colossal Is Crazy”, and although I didn’t particularly hear the resemblance, I guess anyone with a remotely posh accent sounds like the clown to you lot who don’t live in the UK. Alright you American knobs, I get that your have freeways have gaps in between them the size of Buckingham Palace but we’re not all that local. Anyhow, before I get carried away on that unique tangeant, the point is. I literally knew no-one, and I got ushered into his Discord server and presented to his content, and I’m not gonna lie, it was quite the encounter. I had never heard of Fousey, so this video was my introduction, and it was a pretty comprehensive deconstruction of what Fousey stood for. What I admired about it, was that it managed to make a greater narrative on FouseyTUBE as a person from mere surface value content, which is what I have always wanted to do with my channel. One of the responses that I loathe most when criticising people is the line “You don’t know them, how can you criticise their intentions”, Fousey is a perfect example of how someone can not explicitly commit any wrongdoings on surface value, yet have the most corrupted ideas of what he wants to gain from this content, and the people watching it. This is generally what I took away from Colossal’s video, although the sample videos were limited, he did a great job creating an elaborate character portrait, and really I didn’t feel the necessity to cover it any more than I did back in the day. I did a video criticising his motivation to push a political agenda through his content, and then his decision to copyright strike Colossal for content that was clearly fair use. My interaction with his content has been minimal. And honestly, after he’d gone on a pretty prolonged hiatus I thought I’d never deal with him again, I mean, what more is there to know about him. Admittedly, I wasn’t that interested, I assumed he was just a dodgy person in a powerful position, but oh my, looks like I’ve got some revisiting to do. Because recently he has just been flying off the rails, into something rather worrying, something that not even the extensive lengths of Colossal’s video covered, a strange insanity that I felt the need to investigate, and perhaps explain. He hosted something that was branded as “FouseyCon”, and he went on a massive tirade, with some truly weird comments, and has started releasing music, which, once again, he’s more than at liberty to. However, regarding this convention, he made lots of wild claims, one of which including the assertions that Drake was going to be performing, which, apparently wasn’t quite the case. Well, wasn’t the case at all. There is a tonne of footage of him behaving extremely erratically and impulsively, and it’s very easy for commentators to look at him right now, and try and explain what’s going on in the moment, because it is, it’s bizarre. There are claims about his mental health, the profession that he’s not on medication, bipolar, depression, mania. And it’s very possible, but there are other people with more of an insight into that currently, so I’d just urge you to go and check out those videos, because I am many things, but I’m not quite rolling with the big boys of YouTube yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time though lads. Me and daddy Keem, united. Anyhow, before I lose myself in sweet daydreams of a better time, I need to discuss the man in question FouseyTUBE. Now, Colossal’s still working on part two of his video, so I want to avoid stepping on his toes, but I don’t want to be a surface level analysis.

How This TikTok Predator Reflects A Greater Problem - TheBudday | TRO

How This TikTok Predator Reflects A Greater Problem - TheBudday | TRO

The Right Opinion: How This TikTok Predator Reflects A Greater Problem - TheBudday | TRO The topics we’ve covered of recent, are pretty serious, and you know, I like to be serious, I’m a serious, brooding person, I am the Batman of YouTube, minus the excessive riches, just because the accent is rich, doesn’t mean the pockets are. So I thought, you know what, we’ll do something more fun, something more upbeat, something that the child friendly twats at YouTube would endorse, Tik Tok, I mean what serious comments can be made about that? It’ll get me rated E for every single little git who wants to click on my videos, yeah, I’m looking at you, little scallywag, you’re watching The Right Opinion now. Yeah, today we’re pulling out the stops to get Susan’s endorsement and talking about… Susan I’m so sorry but I have a duty to serve, one day I’ll make content that will rival Jimmy Fallon in its inoffensiveness. And honestly, I really did preside over this topic for a while, really considering whether I should do it, TikTok is the peak of joke topics, that anyone should be doing, everyone’s been talking about it, but honestly I think there is a greater phenomenon that it can represent, and that is the art of child predation. I’ll give a brief run down of Tik Tok for any boomers who are watching, I love you all the same, don’t worry, but all this new technology gets very confusing for you lads, and that’s understandable, it seems rather redundant to me as well, but there’s an audience. You know the old cliché where people grab the nearest microphone shaped ornament, a hairbrush, a toothbrush, you know, and they sing in the mirror. Well, it appears it’s not just some timely fad, it’s clear that there is some inner vanity that needs to be fulfilled, which is why these apps exist. They are basically a virtual mirror for you to lip sync your favourite music or weird quotes. And admittedly I am completely guilty of Snapchatting myself lip syncing desperately and sending it to my friends and probably confusing them greatly, the difference is I don’t put it out for the whole world to see. Anyhow, basically, my point is, that TikTok is a platform that promotes this on a public basis, so that every 13 year old can post something thinking they’re being all hip, and then have it up there for the rest of their life, so when they go into some job interview they can have their arse torn apart by some manager who went googling their name and found a goldmine, and they’ll forever be known as TikTok Tim because their name is Tim and they did TikTok. It was founded initially in 2016, but it didn’t start to pick up until a few months ago with the merger of one of its modern contemporaries: Musical.ly, which is another platform with a similar purpose. However, TikTok seems to be even more prevalent than Musical.ly in this current environment, and there are many reasons for why that appears to be, partly because of the absolute mammoth Chinese market, which is where it was originally launched in 2016, that has likely given it a lot of momentum, but also the additional features, that definitely make it more extensive than extensive than previous applications, as well as the fairly straightforward interface that does make creating the content for hyper annoying children nice and easy, which is what we like. I may be an old man at the age of 21, but I must say, when I was a lad, around the young ages, I didn’t have many privileges of the internet, I lived in the middle of nowhere and the bandwidth wasn’t great, I remember a time when we used dial up. Back then we were witnessing a real movement. The creation of e-relationships, and I don’t mean romantic relationships, though they certainly fall into this category, but I’m talking about connections between people all over the world. The age of the internet truly is an exciting thing, with people being more interconnected than ever, it has created its own culture in a way. And as someone who has benefitted from that there is no way I can ever not praise it. However, the online world has also brought many threats, and one of those that I want to talk about today, is that of predators. Predators, have always existed, they are nothing new, it’s just the internet gives them a new dynamic to play with, and that means that we have to all be more aware, and in all fairness, the educational system in the UK were very proactive in making sure that we, as children, weren’t roped into such rings, and although I didn’t think I would’ve ever done something like that, nor would my parents have let me, I still ended up in one of those situations. Admittedly, it wasn’t through the internet, I don’t think that would have happened, but I know there are many people in different environments who are susceptible to that, particularly when you may have a rocky real life relationship with those around you and some stranger online offers a better alternative.

The Mistakes of Butch Hartman - Why He Only Has Himself To Blame | TRO

The Mistakes of Butch Hartman - Why He Only Has Himself To Blame | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Mistakes of Butch Hartman - Why He Only Has Himself To Blame | TRO Intro: I have a really diverse audience. And in a way that’s somewhat expected, but because I’m so integrated with many commentators, I can occasionally lose sight of this, despite the fact that I know I have people who don’t even follow what’s going on with FouseyTUBE, despite it being spoken about non stop in my circles. In fact, I clearly have a significant amount of people who are more interested in today’s topic, which is interesting to me, because although admittedly, I am fairly familiar with the individual in question, it kind of falls outside of the typical content that I would turn to. However, with that said, my Doug Walker video did very well, and that was, in a way, in the same vein, so I only think it’s justified to discuss this person, who once again, some of you will be very familiar with, some of you will probably have never heard of, some of you will might be big fans of him, others may despise him. One thing I know is that these less commentary, more niche individuals provoke strong feelings within individuals, to the point where they might give me rather strong opinions. So, I don’t expect this to go down fantastically with everyone, but I don’t do it to please everyone, I do it for the people who want to enjoy my content, and if you wanna come along for the ride then you’re more than welcome to join me. And many people have asked me to do a video on this chap, so it clearly does have an appeal, and hopefully today I can provide a more impartial look at everything he’s said and done, and give some thoughts and opinions, it’s what I do. Also, once again, I know this will be a late coverage of the subject but I prefer to wait until all the dust has settled before pulling out the duster, if you know what I mean, it also allows me to have a look at what more can be said, and rather than just observing the current drama that is going down. So let’s briefly have a run down of why Butch Hartman is of interest today, because on the surface, if you were just scrolling through his Wikipedia page, Butch Hartman has no right to be involved in the YouTube community. If you’re an internet casual, like most people, you wouldn’t be able to tell him apart from any other TV producer, or an imator. But as we’re going to find out today, there’s a lot to distinguish him beneath the surface. Now, to the people who are unfamiliar with this gentleman, Butch Hartman is a multi-talented individual in children’s cartoons, he has produced many popular TV shows. The one that you lot are probably most conversant with is the Fairly Oddparents, a show that I used to adore growing up. It’s the sort of show that, in spite of its rather ostentatious attitude, just has the plots to really inspire the imagination with all the possibilities of the fantastical world that it creates. Given where I lived, and the sort of TV service that we used to receive, I never really had the opportunity to watch it on a regular basis, so any time I did was a luxury. However, that is merely a ripple in the ocean that is his career, and he has helped produce many other children’s television shows including Danny Phantom, T.U.F.F. Puppy, and Dexter’s Laboratory. Which, although it’s something we wouldn’t really think about too much as kids, it’s easy to see the striking stylistic similarities, ooh, that was some nice alliteration. Anyhow, before I become too caught up in my own language, let me make it clear, it’s no criticism that you have consistency in your animations, plenty of franchises have a lot of overlap in their technique, if you can evolve the storylines and characters, in a compelling fashion, then having a formula for animation is merely an unchanging cog in a greater machine. Thus far I hope I have painted a picture of a person with a prominent profession, ha, did it again. But anyway, Butch Hartman, through this signature flair, created a real following, typically when you have something unique, and defining like that, it’s what happens, much alike to Doug Walker, that whether you personally, loved him or hated him, there was an undeniable appeal to what he had created. He also really involved himself online, particularly using his Twitter as means to create a relationship with his fans, and often involving himself in many online trends and memes, leading to some… interesting results, I jest, it was mildly entertaining. He’d also provide his daily dose of wisdom, which typically inspired people to go and… well, retweet it. Can’t knock the impressions, but Hartman had clearly made good impressions. So why are we here today? Document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HGFo3PMdK_OKez2dZmw6TQe1V1hHaQpgcHNXLIVDOeQ/edit

The Unseen Side of Storytime Animators - How It Hurts Their Reputation | TRO

The Unseen Side of Storytime Animators - How It Hurts Their Reputation | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Unseen Side of Storytime Animators - How It Hurts Their Reputation | TRO Intro: Yes, an aside comment about the personas adopted by storytime animators, admittedly, a genre that I had next to no interest in, gave me a simple lightbulb moment. What is that lightbulb moment? Well, you’ll have to be patient, because right now, we’re going to provide a little synopsis of what the animation community is, because I’m sure many of you may be unfamiliar with the swelling group of creators. However, to understand the evolution, we need to go back a few years, because there was a time where animation was all over YouTube, it was inescapable. A range of unique creators converging in this place that supported their individuality, YouTube was almost custom made for it, the idea that people were expressing themselves, and their effort was being rewarded was one of the most fulfilling things. In the early days, animators focused mainly on a distinct style to find them, in a video reflecting on this Quinton Reviews depicted the intricate style that each of them took. I won’t repeat what he said, but in the early days of YouTube, there were many creators who really set themselves apart using animation, and you know what, I liked it a lot, even though it wasn’t as direct and to the point as much other content, you could see what was being expressed through the cartoons. Personally, I’m a big fan of the show not tell, and even if stuff seemed shallow on the surface, when you broke a lot of it down, it seemed to reveal layers, and this stuff really rocked the boat of YouTube. And then, it just stopped. I’m sure many of you know the story, but to those who don’t, YouTube run a range of algorithms that decide whether your genre lives or dies, and whether they decided it wasn’t profitable enough, or just the views began to dip a tad, YouTube decided to pull the plug, and these animators were just left in the dark. Many moons passed and the sun seemed set on many in the animation genre, no gaps really opened up, YouTube felt like a different place and their fall was documented by many commentators. However, by 2016, there was a new gap in the market. 2016 was an interesting year, not just for YouTube, but for people, we were moving into a more volatile area, there was just an air of cynicism, but one thing I’d say in particular, was that people were becoming more aware. Aware of the world around them, aware of the tactics used by people who were previously trusted. People no longer sought after those who pandered to their sympathies, it was a real shift in mentality across the spectrum, and that awareness of the world around them, led to an equally increased awareness of self. It led to a more brooding generation, a set of people looking more inside themselves, rather than looking for exterior validation from the previous set of superficial creators. And through this rose a very interesting genre, known as “Storytime Animation”, most people here will probably know TheOdd1sOut, who was one of the real pioneers of this genre, at the turn of 2016 he had little more than 10,000 subscribers. Yet by the end he had over two million. Why though? Well his content reflected the landscape that I just described to you, when looking inside themselves, people found insecurities, things that they wanted to change, and no longer did they look to these fake, smiley vloggers to just gloss over it, to show the nice bright side of everything, they wanted people who put that sort of self-reflection in their content. Now, it’s not like the vloggers and other content creators didn’t try to put deep moments in their content, but it was almost always given a contrived gloss, or stuck at the end of a video in which they went out and bought a new Bentley for their second cousin, it was hard to relate to struggles when they were presented in a way that we didn’t see them inside ourselves. TheOdd1sOut tapped into an authenticity, whereas the former class of vloggers took general struggles and made them personalised, TheOdd1sOut reversed that formula, and took personal struggles and even everyday life, and presented them in a light that made people think “This guy gets me”, he took his own individual situations and tinted them in a timeless sentiment that appealed to the current generation of our introspective youth. I respect him for that. Turkey Tom Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QMbzQA-xIk MangaKamen video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fou2G8XwbKQ

Greg Paul: A Family Affair - The Truth Behind Logan And Jake’s Vlogdad | TRO (ft. WoollyOne, Benji)

Greg Paul: A Family Affair - The Truth Behind Logan And Jake’s Vlogdad | TRO (ft. WoollyOne, Benji)

The Right Opinion: Greg Paul: A Family Affair - The Truth Behind Logan And Jake’s Vlogdad | TRO Intro: Let’s talk about family for a moment... Whether that family is biological, adopted, or just a group of people you share a unique connection with, they play a real role in shaping you as a person, and can help you through some of your hardest times. The role they play should never underrated. But what if that family is Greg Paul? Well, that is the scenario that Jake and Logan find themselves in. It makes sense, he’s their biological father. But he’s not your normal dad of a YouTuber, the one who stands, hopefully supportively on the sidelines, he clearly enjoys basking in the spotlight. And on principle, there is nothing wrong with that, I am of the belief that age should not constrain one’s capacity, and even if their doorway is via nepotism, they may still have the character, independent from the familial factor, to redeem that. The 54 year old, is a character without a doubt, but he does clearly want to involve himself in his sons’ lives, and we’ll touch on this later. Jake and Logan Paul have established clout in their own rights but still appear to appreciate the presence of their father. In one event, which I won’t be discussing today, Greg here, featured in one of Jake’s videos and made out with a sixteen year old fan. And although it’s weird and marginally unsettling, it’s been ran into the ground by everyone under the sun, I think everyone’s made their mind up on it. However, it’s important that we provide some background for what has inspired this video. It was early May, the Earth was rotating on its axis like any normal day, but it wasn’t any normal day for Team 10. In fact it was quite an eventful period of time for Jake Paul and his comrades, because on May the 5th, the COO of Team 10, Nick Crompton, yo u know, that person who claimed England to be his city, stepped down. Nick Crompton had been noted for his staunch devotion to the Pauls, and even in his divorce statement, kept it relatively civil, and urged people to not blindly hate on Jake. However, an indirect recipient of the underlying message within the letter seemed to be Mr. Greg Paul himself. It was also not long before Chance Sutton, another highly distinguished member of troupe, decided that it was time for him to part ways.And eventually, after a fair bit of digging various hypotheses were stated. The main one being that the Greg Paul in question, had assumed control of many of Jake’s assets within the Team 10 business, and had since been making some ruthless cuts, to put it gently, he had taken up the role of Team 10’s own personal human resources department. There were some more elaborate stories, that included various details of a possible merger, and more individual developments that we’ll discuss later, but that is the core story that is mostly confirmed from both sides. I followed this vaguely, and often it’s something I would not rather touch on, but I do believe there is a greater commentary that can be made about Greg Paul, his demeanour, and various relationships that this story encompasses. Both Jake, and Logan Paul have had their fair share of controversies, Logan with the obvious, and Jake with the consistency. And once again, I stress, that Jake and Logan can act how they want, and the public will judge them as they do, but if they want to be slightly more positive role models than the ones they are currently, a mediating actor could be genuinely beneficial, however, what I’ve found today tends to lend support to the fact that this could actually be detrimental. And I’ll precursor this with my video, people can obviously do what they want, no one’s obliged to be great human beings, however, if you wanna lecture people on what’s right and wrong, you better practice what you preach, something that I find fundamentally lacking, for all parties involved today. - WoollyOne: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCln2Ot4HeKVeigl3JWGOdhA - Benji: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCGmY4_0sTZwyQugVAFfPAjg - CHECK OUT THE EDITORS! - Doco: https://www.youtube.com/user/happycraftcom - DampBroadcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO82dbDOrkwl6NN0dOFqEow - Mullenax: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrFluffySavage - Daniel Cods: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQd0iVUe3JYX3SjYwklBcyQ - Thumbnail: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpCeUlldSsXKRwJvFLYw64w - Outro: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyuNHQVfhMgszyJ2FRPfHUg - Special thanks to my Patreons: Mr Radiance, Low60, Mac Mauder, Jade Rose, The Biotechnological Fragmentation Gr*nade - Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRightOpinion - Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/therightopinion - Discord: https://discord.gg/VKFReyr

Here Lies: Your Outrage Against Zoella and Alfie Deyes - The JaackMaate Effect | TRO

Here Lies: Your Outrage Against Zoella and Alfie Deyes - The JaackMaate Effect | TRO

Intro: Today is the day in which I definitely take on something more challenging, not because it’s a hard topic to decipher, not because it’s even particularly controversial, but because I expect it’s going to dispute a prevailing narrative which has been accepted by many spectators, and also defending people who typically, I’d have no interest in defending, but here we are, half a year later, and after a fair few controversies, I think it’s high time we have a discussion. This is Zoella, and this is Alfie Deyes, they are a pair of British vloggers, they are partners, and they are both relatively successful. Zoella is a lifestyle vlogger, who focuses on a variety of vlogs, primarily leaning towards the more beauty sort of content, make-up tutorials, item recommendations, all that jazz. Alfie Deyes, also known as PointlessBlogVlogs, makes videos on a broader range of topics, covering all sorts of things going on his life, which clearly appeals to some demographic. These guys are proper classic YouTube stars, back from the early 2010s, they’ve been around for a while. I’d heard of them, especially Zoella, she’s kinda inescapable, but have never taken sat down and watched one of her videos. I’m not quite her target audience. They’re smiling, and happy, and often they’ll do collabs with other people who are smiling and happy, and everyone’s laughing, hahaha, joy to the world, isn’t everything fantastic? In case you haven’t gathered, I don’t like them very much, nothing personal of course, but it’s no secret to those in my inner circle that I’ve loathed most vloggers for a while, their saccharine levels of glee seem extremely forced, and I find most of the content so vapid and meaningless. There is a video of them just messing around with a swimming pool, it has one million views, I mean I’m not gonna knock the views, but imagine spending your day sitting down watching someone set up a swimming pool. For me, it just seems like content for other people to live through, and although it can be cathartic in the short term for an audience, I’d always just encourage going out and grinding to afford a swimming pool yourself, this content always seems to leave a void for me, maybe that’s just who I am, but who I am affects how I feel. However, that’s not the topic of the video today, I just wanted to get that off my chest, but now my chest, my abdomen, my rib cage, my trachea, my lungs, my bronchi, are completely clear, and we are ready to rock and roll. You see, Zoella and Alfie Deyes are part of the British vloggers, crew, and here in the UK, we have a very nice little niche for them, not just in the vlogging community, but in the commentary community. It’s no secret that the British vlogging scene has kinda gone, many of the people like ThatcherJoe, Marcus Butler, Oli White, even the ones we’re talking about today, are “stagnating”, I was gonna throw Caspar Lee into that mix too, but since he made a video on the KSI drama, it seems he might just resurrect himself, but I guess we’ll see what happens on that matter. And ready to dance on the graves of these people are the commentators, which is something I’d normally welcome with open arms, I mean, who doesn’t love the chaos of calling people out for doing terrible things. And in this instance the main targets were the titular characters of this little tale, good old Zoe, and Alfie here. Firstly, Zoe for her ill advised Christmas calendar that came in at a tasty 50 quid, and secondly Alfie, for another little stunt in which he quote “survived” on one quid a day, spoiler alert, he didn’t exactly play by the rules. In these little escapades, it’s quite easy to see why people dished out the criticism fairly heavily, there were plenty of embarrassing moments to pick apart, especially when you’re going in with the level of precision that many commentators do. As I’ve said in previous videos, people in different communities have never been held to the same standards that we in commentary expect, so when commentators felt ravenous, the vlogging community was a buffet. However, is it possible, that in spite of all the legitimate criticisms that could be levelled against these individuals, that mistakes were made. Admittedly, when the first lot of drama transpired against Zoella, I was completely on board for the ride, obviously I wasn’t making videos about it at the time, because it wasn’t really my thing, however, I lapped it all up because it was entertaining, and there was a feeling of righteousness. However, as the months went by I began to question whether it was all worth the passionate vitriol invested into the numerous videos, and by the time the second set of drama came around, I was convinced that this was a very neatly orchestrated ruse, how did it happen though?

How One Decision Changed Smosh Forever - Let's Talk About Who Was Behind It | TRO

How One Decision Changed Smosh Forever - Let's Talk About Who Was Behind It | TRO

The Right Opinion: How One Decision Changed Smosh Forever - Let's Talk About Who Was Behind It | TRO When we watch a YouTube channel, we enjoy their content, we are involved with them, we create a bond with them, we don’t tend to think about what goes on behind the scenes. It’s kinda strange to think that some of our favourite creators, as authentic as they may seem to us, may just be well focused puppets. But being part of a business doesn’t mean that you’re a puppet, many relationships are forged on very mutual terms, and there are many benefits that can come from business relationships, but as viewers, we don’t really care. We don’t look for the exact ingredients for what creates the content we watch, we just enjoy the recipe, unless the recipe is for pineapple on pizza then it’s disgusting. Anyways, back to the point, we don’t speak about Defy Media because no-one cares about them, they’re a faceless business, however, in many situations they play a fundamental part in being the fabric of many of our most popular channels. One of those channels is Smosh, the channel founded by duo, Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla, now there isn’t too much to say about them otherwise, they’ve been going on this platform for years now, and Smosh is a huge brand, if you know YouTube there is a high chance you know Smosh, even if it’s just from the namesake, contrast that to Defy Media, well, they have less Twitter followers than me. So it was only natural, that many people’s reaction when they heard that digital media corporation: Defy Media, was shutting down, was “who?”. Well, Defy Media are a Multi-Channel Network, abbreviated to MCN, and essentially that means they host creators for at least some financial cut of that channel’s earnings. So why on earth would you sign up to an MCN, when all you’re doing is reducing your profits. Well, in the right environment, signing up to an MCN can really come with its perks, if you’re a creator who makes reviews, commentaries, and all sorts of content, which often includes other people’s material, you’ll know how much of a nightmare the copyright system is. Many networks claim to be able to alleviate that, they have inside links to YouTube and they’ll sort you out, another great example is monetisation, we all know Susan Wojcicki struts around like Thanos clicking her fingers and turning that green money tag to a yellow. I know people who’ll just give their network a buzz, and suddenly, Susan’s frosty grip has rescinded, praise those multi-channel networks for the good work they do, they can also assist with sponsorship, finance, and merchandising, and pretty much anything outside your channel. Though, as we’ll soon find, Defy Media definitely took a bit more of a hands on approach. And I’m not talking about Andy Signore. Typically the people who benefit most from channel partnerships are larger creators, mainly because they can make the network more money and thus they are seen as a more valuable financial asset, which is why, if you go on YouTube search and look up networks like Freedom, and then look for rants on their network, you’ll find a lot of angry smaller YouTubers who completely felt neglected, signed up under the premise that they would be offered something better than they actually received, and then were basically scammed out of 40% of their earnings, 40%, that’s not loose change. However, as a larger channel you’ll typically find more purpose, and there are many benefits which is probably why, like many networks, Defy Media accumulated numerous clients who would seek their benefits. On one hand some of their relationships were merely the normal partnerships, where a creator would sign a contract and they would enter into a classical business relationship like most network-creator contracts, on the other hand with Smosh, whom will be one of the key topics today, Ian and Anthony actually sold their channel to Defy Media, for the grand total of nothing. This essentially made Ian and Anthony employees of Defy Media, who then received a salary, now, an anonymous source told me that the salary that Ian and Anthony received was rather small, especially when compared to the person who signed them, but either way, these were the sorts of dynamics that Defy had with its creators, it varied, a lot. This meant that when the situation that we’ll be discussing today transpired, you had a load of differing accounts from multiple people, with none of them necessarily being false. However, each of those portraits can paint a picture of a company, a brand, and channels that eventually succumbed to a changing environment, and one that there can definitely be cause for criticism and perhaps even more. The thing about YouTube is that these things are always negotiated on an individual basis, there isn’t a level of wage equality when you sign a contract, so everyone’s experiences are gonna be different, particularly if you suffer from some sort of business naivety.

What Really Happened To Marina Joyce? Behind The Internet

What Really Happened To Marina Joyce? Behind The Internet "Mysteries" | TRO

The Right Opinion: What Really Happened To Marina Joyce - Behind The Internet "Mysteries" | TRO Intro: it was a fine Saturday morning, I was relaxing, putting my feet up, regretting my existence, like every other Saturday morning goes, and then, in a moment of spontaneity I decided to check my Twitter feed, the spontaneity was rewarded, because I saw no-one else, but the man himself, daddy Keemstar, saucing it up with a cheeky little feud, with… Marina Joyce of all human beings… Suddenly I had to check my calendar and make sure that we weren’t back in 2016, because for any of you, who have blessed with not knowing who Marina Joyce is, she is a beauty slash lifestyle vlogger, who became monstrously famous for a very brief moment a couple years back, if you blinked you might have missed it, but if you had your eyes open you might have been blinded. At the time of the drama, Marina had been doing YouTube for a few years, her channel was performing alright, but it was nothing particularly special. She had been doing pretty much the same content since the inception of her channel, mainly her unfiltered personality, trying to connect with her audience, doing little games, and certain tutorials, and the sort of content that would attract fans of quite an innocent demographic, she was very happy, quirky character who was definitely not afraid of delivering wholesome messages through the platform, which, you know, we definitely need more of. However, all that was to change at the end of July, 2016, a few days after she posted a video known as Date Outfit Ideas, a video that has now accumulated over 43 million views, yeah, that’s more than any episode from the Shane Dawson documentary series, though, of course, this video has been out longer so there is plenty of time for good ol Shane here to overtake her, but still, let me indicate how much of a movement this was in the moment. In one day she received 35 million views on her channel. That’s what we’re talking about here, it was a movement. What was the source of this movement? Well one we’ve encountered in the past, one of mystery, the question of the moment being, what is going on with Marina Joyce, because in this particular video “Date Outfit Ideas”, Marina is seen as being a tad… zoned out? And this, for a brief moment, threw the internet into a frenzy, delirium my friends, and the commentators dashed for their microphones, as the journalists reached for their keyboards to document the newest, weirdest internet sensation, people were asking questions, conspiracy theories were created, was she kidnapped? Was she mentally ill? Was it all for attention? Even the police were sent to her house to ascertain her well-being, well-being that they allegedly confirmed, although people were still somewhat suspicious. After all, a lot of her audience knew what she was normally like, knew her old videos, and her energetic personality, a personality that had been swapped out for a rather unnerving individual. However, as mentioned, this was a brief trend, and with Marina, withholding the explanation, providing there was one of course, meant that many people quickly lost interest, after all, what’s a mystery if it can’t be clearly solved. Which is what leads us to November 2018, when Marina decides to release a video where she talks to haters, in a rather formless video which jumps from one point to the other, and talks about a philosophy that we’ll definitely address later. She goes out of the way to express how it’s necessary not to reveal the nature of her condition, a debatable, but respectable stance. Another theme that prevailed throughout the video was how she planned to stay out of drama. So Marina, being the very anti-drama person decided that she would maintain this philosophy by… immediately having drama with the most dramatic person in the history of the dramatic world: good old Keem. You see, after this situation was brought back into light, Keemstar boldly claimed that the reason that all this occurred in the first place was because of content, not any specific content, but honestly, if this claim was true, it might have been multiple content for all we know. Now, when the initial situation arose, she was very quiet on the topic, she never really confirmed any of the theories, never really commented, and maybe that was for the best, maybe that wasn’t, we’ll debate that in a bit, but this time round it was different. When Keemstar made these claims this time round Marina responded differently, this time outwardly denying that they even had a shred of truth, which, ironically caused the truth to be allegedly revealed after all these years.

The Fall of SSSniperWolf Ft. ColossalIsCrazy, TheRightOpinion

SSSniperWolf, or Alia Shelesh is a reaction YouTuber with over 13 million subscribers. This year she has gained over 5 million new subscribers. She also hasn't faced much criticism of sorts this year. Nerd City made a video criticising her poor Photoshop habits, and a few of her lies - but the past wasn't really dug up.

Do YouTubers Really Understand Mental Health? The Betterhelp Legacy | TRO

Do YouTubers Really Understand Mental Health? The Betterhelp Legacy | TRO

The Right Opinion: Do YouTubers Really Understand Mental Health? The Betterhelp Legacy | TRO Intro: You see, I released a video on h3, I worked incredibly hard on the research that brought it together, the points I made, and I gave it a lot of thought. Explaining why I believed they had strayed from their original content and this had subsequently led them to take a break, I took a sympathetic point of view towards them, because how I felt, I think there are a lot of people on the verge of burnout. However, almost immediately I released it, I had a load of comments pointing out that h3 had got themselves in another mess less than 24 hours before, leading my video to be timed fairly inconveniently . So what was this mess? Well let’s talk about BetterHelp… Even if you’re a YouTube casual, you will have heard of BetterHelp, the online, interactive website, that promotes therapy on an accessible platform: the internet. So to give you a breakdown, if you’re a patient of this site, you sign up, and you fill out a basic form explaining what you’re looking for, and what may you may be experiencing, and what they do is that they have an extensive roster of therapists who are allegedly qualified, we’ll return to the allegedly part in a bit, anyway, they hook you up with one of these therapists. The ultimate aim? Well that’s unclear, and we’ll explain why that’s a problem in a bit, but the general aim is to improve health. But if you’ve seen the title, you’ll know that this is a video about YouTubers, so where do they factor into this very enticing plot? Well BetterHelp targeted a certain band of YouTubers, in fact, ones that I like to talk about the most. The individuals who are seen as moral bastions on the platform, this is no coincidence, these individuals have built special relationships with their fans, and unlike the Jake Pauls of this generation, they deal with mature subjects, they have a slightly more adult audience, this is the sort of thing that is perfect. And honestly the environment has been set up pretty neatly for something like this to come into play. Now, make no mistake, BetterHelp has existed for a few years, since its inception in 2013, it was always purring in the background, but recently, one of their marketing executive must have spotted an opportunity in the fertile grounds of YouTube. Which is a smart idea in principle. In the last few years, YouTube has become a lot deeper than just a place where people put on facades for the day, and I’ve spoken about that in length in the past. It just seems like a progression of the culture. Amongst a lot of the deeper topics that have popped up in the last few years, one that seems increasingly prevalent is that of “depression” and mental health, there are a multiple reasons for this. I think the online world has brought together a new set of people who find themselves away from the turmoil of their real lives, and in that escape we equally tried to find answers for the problems that we face in our minds, and one of those does come down to mental health. Depression as such is a complex topic, we need to be able to distinguish between when we may just be experiencing mood dips, and when we actually have a chemical imbalance that disposes us to be legitimately depressed. A great example of the confusion of the two was Prince EA’s video on how you’re not depressed, you just have to shut up. Also, was great to see that Prince EA made the Mental Health Awareness day, after such an inspirational set of videos. YouTubers know that speaking about depression is extremely sensitive, you can’t be seen as taking advantage of the topic, but equally we are in a culture where people are being encouraged to be open about their experiences with the condition, and often being open about these things can help others, and we certainly shouldn’t diminish that. On the other hand, we shouldn’t be seen as clickbaiting it, or taking advantage of the possible experiences of suffering to emotionally manipulate our audiences, so ironically it becomes a whole different balancing act on working out how to appear genuine, which in a way, is contrived within itself. But that’s a topic for a different time. Equally, creators who use these experiences in their videos will create a bond with the audience, often creating a shared experience, and maybe helping an individual come to terms with their own struggles, and so it made perfect sense that BetterHelp reach out to these lovely creators, who are renowned for their reputability, to promote their therapy website and help others make it through the same struggles but there’s a catch, in fact there are a lot of catches.

A Critique Of Shane Dawson.

A Critique Of Shane Dawson.

The Right Opinion - A Critique Of Shane Dawson | TRO (Inside The Mind of Jake Paul) I had a few topics to pick out of the hat, but I found such a fascinating one today that I couldn’t possibly ignore it, and it’s obviously in part about the titular character, Mr. Shane Dawson here. Shane Dawson, like a lot of people we talk about on this channel, is a YouTuber, I’m sure many of you are already aware of this, but if you’ve somehow just discovered the platform, and you’ve had the pleasure of having this beautiful accent introduce you. That’s what he is, a YouTuber, but he’s not any old YouTuber, he’s not any geek off the street, he is one of the first YouTubers to gain prominence on the platform. This was mainly through his channel Shane Dawson TV, the TV there, clearly making it sound nice and professional, he uploaded these comedy sketch style videos, an iconic classic being “Fred”, in which Shane Dawson appropriately deals with Fred so he can establish himself as the most popular YouTuber on the platform, which, you know, I’m not complaining about. Anyhow, that was in a simpler time, and as a creator it is a necessity that you evolve with the times, so as charming as these sketches and short films were, it appears they were brought to an end on that channel at the close of 2016. What took its place though? Well, his third channel, Shane, yep, he had three channels, busy bloke he is, for all we know he might have more. Now Shane, was originally set up as a vlog channel, in the day it was almost like a backup for him letting his followers know what’s up, and what’s going down, with little jokes and memes, nonetheless, still with some pretty saucy clickbait, there was no throwaway thumbnail to Shane it seems. Anyhow, in case you haven’t noticed, with the increasing accessibility to high quality equipment, vlogging has emerged in the last few years as a huge genre, along with this, other genres that have crept into the public eye are mystery genres, list genres, and commentary. Therefore, Shane did what any person with a level head did, and made his “Shane” channel dedicated to morphing all of those genres together, which is pretty genius to be honest. Although, as a creator Shane was definitely aware of the consequences of mixing a range of genres that are too diverse from each other, and something that his accomplice Bobby Burns would soon find out, and so he tended to mesh them in a very similar style that would bring back the same audience for each video, allowing organic views to turn into suggested views, and this would grow out some great content that had mass appeal to multitudes of audiences, dedicated and casual. I assume he chose this channel because it probably had the best potential fanbase, and as said, if you tried to mix these videos with already established content in a rather distinctly incompatible style the algorithms loathe it, and so I assume this was a smart move. On top of this, he would include some more personal videos, that would branch out his character, and the relationship that he had with his audience, in a way he was building an empire. The Shane brand not just being an interesting expansion of content for him, but also branching out on the elements of his character, dissecting his childhood, relationships, and asking a lot of questions, with no clear answers. It’s emotionally riveting stuff, it really is. I feel therefore it was an appropriate succession to continue into these documentary style videos, that deal with many of the components that Shane had dealt with in the past, just in a more bombastic fashion, and under the guise of an individual problem, or person, which is then branched out to implicitly deal with other questions. That’s typically what any video that’s not just a basic reaction will do, but obviously there are tiers to this, and Dawson clearly wanted to do top tier. Now I recently covered the tea spilling saga, of which one of the people I covered was Jeffree Star, Jeffree Star has always been in the public eye, in fact he’s a very prominent individual clearly, however, given the sort of brewing tea in that community, it made sense that Shane would be interested in covering such controversial figures. However, in my video I note that this whole beauty community kinda dominated the summer and pushed other figures like the Pauls into the background, even though, they were arguably behaving much worse than any of the beauty commentators in question. So when Shane announced his next set of videos were going to be on Jake Paul some people were a tad surprised, here is this topic that was, in a way, kinda dead and buried, and if Shane was gonna pull his shovel out he was gonna have to dig deep to find some interesting content.

What Is Article 13 And Why Are People Worried About It? | TRO

What Is Article 13 And Why Are People Worried About It? | TRO

The Right Opinion - What Is Article 13 And Why Are People Worried About It? | TRO Most of my videos I put out on my channel are topics that I think will have your interest, this is a general philosophy because I like to entertain people and try and find a balance between what I care about and what you care about, equally it’s a learning process, finding out this new information and sharing with you guys is a great experience for me. However, every now and then, I know I have to make a video that won’t be the most fun to make, and will require a lot of detail, and today is that day my friends. I held off this for a while but I knew that I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t raise my voice. So let’s talk about the EU, because during my time in America, I’ve been surprised to find that many people actually do not have a clue how it operates. So consider the next five to ten minutes a little crash course. EU is an abbreviation for the European Union, an organisation of countries that forms its own absolute body, often cooperating and creating legislation to maintain a more cohesive relationship. It was initially borne out of the fact that politically, Europe has been a bit of a mess, and to provide almost a grounding, a central body would stabilise the lawmaking process, very modest intentions. Over the years, this has developed, with new institutions and initiatives being integrated and established, typically through treaties, which are essentially contracts between countries, that’s a very simplified definition but I just want you to have a general gist. The European Union that we know today was formed by a treaty in 1992 known as the Maastricht Treaty, which aided the transition of the European Union beyond just an economic community. I’m not going to go into too many more details because they’re not entirely relevant, and honestly it’s not the most fun things to hear, however, it is of importance to have some basic information so that we can then apply that and think critically about what’s going to be discussed today and its implications. Because the European Union has been expanding its control over many different disciplines over the last few decades, and the internet has been of their interest for a while. And there are many concerns over the ownership of intellectual property on the internet, given the new international realms it expands over. In the past everything that we watch on the TV has been run through a limited number of corporations who adhere to regulations that they can be reprimanded under if they don’t follow, the new domains granted by the internet has created a plethora of content that is exceptionally hard to regulate. However, over the last few years, we have become increasingly aware of this, with this awareness being raised, there have been filters instated to assure that people aren’t profiting off copyrighted content. For example, someone uploading a copyrighted song on YouTube, may have it removed or monetised by the original artist. The internet is a place of new opportunity, but it also is a state of great lawlessness, many of us will remember the ads that they’d put at the start of a film saying “You wouldn’t steal a film”, because online makes all these forms of media much more accessible. With this in mind, many sites like YouTube are overbearing in the imposition of copyright restrictions, with many people, myself included, that they give too much power to the actual claimant to be the arbiter of the content. I’ve had this experience myself with my content in the past, situations where I’ve been claimed, appealed, and the appeal goes straight to the owner, and they reject it because they like money more than fair use, the only way I resolved it that time was by threatening a lawsuit. I don’t fuck around. It’s pretty much understood at this point, that the internet isn’t going anywhere, however, this also means that other competitors, and governments will be under increasing pressure to respond to such freedoms, with new restrictions. Now, we’ve seen this in this in the US and the EU, this is not a new thing, we already have copyright directives for the internet to try and prevent illegal usage of content, although it is unavoidable to an extent. But the European Union really want to up the regulation, with their new copyright directive, that closes in on many of the issues that they feel they haven’t been stringent enough on in the past. The most notorious component of this little document is something known as Article 13, which has prompted backlash and outcry amongst many of us internet dwellers. This outrage has been amplified by a collective of media outlets that have been reporting on the content.

The Attack On MrBeast | TRO

The Attack On MrBeast | TRO

The Right Opinion - The Attack On MrBeast | TRO Intro: Here and there, I’ve dropped the mention of media, often in a less than favourable tone, and often it does seem abstract to me, that something, which, before I started paying attention to the internet, I never was really particularly bothered by, now really frustrates me as a medium. This is, in part, because I never really used it, my childhood experience of the PC constituted of FIFA Manager, and a brief spell in a Call of Duty clan, a venture that will forever bemuse me, though it did yield some pretty epic throwing knife montages. I told you guys I was a man of many talents. But anyway, before I get lost in the forest that is my own ego, we were discussing the media. When I started using online sites, it rapidly became clear to me how many sites had agendas to push, I remember the 2015 UK General Election, when the Daily Mail posted a tactical voting guide on how to keep Labour out on their front page, despite the fact that, as a radio host myself at the time, not being allowed to express any political views pre-election. The media do have extensive freedom, and damn do they milk that. I realised it then, but it never really caused me any concern, because people did seem to see through such a vapid attempt to manipulate the many audiences, no, not until year of 2016, when I decided to pursue this damned YouTube dream, did I encounter my initial qualms. Social media, particularly that on Twitter, seemed to focus on reactionary titles, exceptionally poor reporting, and the farthest reaching within their legal realms, aimed at masking fallacies with facts. Ones that which, although not libelous, I always found pretty manipulative. I think this has become more apparent over the last few years as certain figures have provoked that narrative into the open, often bringing it into scrutiny. A person who has practically become the media nemesis is obviously American President Donald Trump, I don’t want to go into too much detail, but his election was a real indictment to a media almost entirely hostile to him and his beliefs. I think that was a turning point for when I realised that wasn’t exactly working out, I wasn’t particularly happy but I saw it coming. Many people disagree to the extent of the toxicity of modern journalism, however, one situation that brought creators, near and far, together, was the situation surrounding MrBeast. Now, MrBeast, is a creator who bases his channel, in part, around philanthropy, that is, handing out the dollar to the less fortunate, he often finds creative ways to do it at least, while balancing this with content based on ideas so absurdly intriguing that they pull the views to fund his generosity, although he did say most of his money nowadays comes from deals beyond the YouTube platform, as the monetisation process hasn’t been particularly merciful towards him, either way, it’s a reproductive process, and long may it last. The Atlantic must’ve seen his success, and thought “how can we get a good click out of that”, and then thought “scandal”, so reads this title.

The Right Opinion - What Happened To Zoie Burgher? The Sad Truth Behind A Destructive Persona | TRO Intro: Monday the 7th of May 2018, 10:09 am Eastern Standard Time. The sun shining, the flowers blooming, the day advancing. However, not everything shone, not everything bloomed, and not everything advanced. In fact, in the world surrounding Zoie Burgher, the forecast was quite adverse. In a series of revealing Tweets, she let the world know of her condition, her circumstances and her state. Literally and figuratively. The once renowned sexual provocateur had taken a sharp nosedive into oblivion. A sad story, but how did she meet this fate? But more importantly, why? Hello Ladies and welcome to The Right Opinion, the home of a twat with too much free time, and today, I take a look at: Zoie Burgher. The Sad Story of Zoie Burgher I think the best place to start with this story is an embellishment on the current situation. Zoie Burgher or was a Twitch and YouTube streamer. Sounds fairly, unexceptional, doesn’t it. Well, Zoie was a streamer, with a twist, and a few twerks too. Montage She originally started involving herself in social media around the year of 2013, while she was attending University, relatable, at least, I assume it was around then as that was when her Twitter account was created. Yes, back in 2016, she became extremely notorious amongst anyone within the commentary sphere, for being particularly provocative with her content. But there was a lot more going on beyond the surface. As a Twitch streamer she was banned four times. However, finding her feet on YouTube, she hit 1 million in the space of two months. That is pretty incredible. I remember when I first came across her, and I was almost stunned at the speed of such growth, even with the reputation garnered being carried over from Twitch, it seemed she was destined to smash the platform. After all, there’s always gonna be a demographic for her sorta content, right? Zoie Burgher, face of YouTube. Didn’t quite happen, did it? In fact, as quickly as the success came, it just halted. And as of right, now she is on the same subscriber count that she was on in December 2016. Given that her ascension was only in the space of a few months before then, the sudden cessation was almost unbelievable. Now, it’s not exceptional for someone to fall as quickly as they rise, and there are many scenarios in which this has occurred, but for something as consistently, well, dick hardening for many young whippersnappers, a stagnation seems at least, slightly more difficult than she made it out to be. Plenty of other provocative females on the platform have been known to flaunt their physicality, and they can hold onto their ground. On top of that, it wasn’t like she hadn’t tried to branch beyond just shaking her ass. In fact, she had also attempted to start up her own little brand, known as Luxe, it’s clear that she invested a lot in this. And we’ll investigate that more in a bit. However, when the first generation of this little squadron exited at the end of 2017, Zoie greeted 2018 with open arms and vowed to give the next set of recruits all new and exciting opportunities. Mansion shoots, production filming. Zoie had a vision! However, on the 8th of April that came to an end, with Luxe dissolving, for reasons that shall be discussed in due course. And just over a month later came that Tweet. Followed by numerous more Tweets that represented a unique turn in character from the rather explicit streamer. Where there is a rise, and there is a fall, there is an explanation, for both. I thought I’d conduct my own little enquiry into the little details that led to the ascent, and subsequent descent for one of the most immediately provocative characters. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

How Angry Joe Became A Target - The Wrong Way To Respond? | TRO

How Angry Joe Became A Target - The Wrong Way To Respond? | TRO

Intro: For those who didn’t know, I used to, myself be a fairly political commentator, I intertwined it with media friendly topics, and even covered trending topics from time to time, but I was pretty political. I’m not gonna go into that much depth, mainly because I will likely save it for a special video, and I expect to be asked it for a Q&A, but there’s some stuff I stand by, some stuff not so much, ideas evolve, if you care about it you can DM me. If I was still political, I think today’s topic would definitely be of my interest, however, we are running with it on my new format, because I think it’s embedded in YouTube culture enough to appeal to many of you. So it’s a bit of old, bit of new. And anyway there’s an equally prominent reason that I’m doing this, because, probably to the surprise of some of you, I used to watch a lot of Angry Joe. I wasn’t crazy about the streams and so on, however, I’d always tune in to one of his more longform reviews, and even some of the film reviews, you know, the one with Other Joe and that bloke with the beard, yeah, you know. And also, as a person with OCD levels of pedanticism, I love lists, and in around 2014, at the turn of the year, Angry Joe would drop 3 or 4 big fat lists for me to dig my teeth into. Delish. I really enjoy a lot of review channels, they definitely encourage critical thinking, and as someone who had always dreamed about being involved in the creative industry, it gave me ideas of things that I might or might not want to do if I ever followed those arrows. I haven’t yet, though there’s still time, and I’ve ended up here. What a place to be, anyhow, central to that was Angry Joe. He didn’t always provide his criticism in the most constructive way, but he never held back, I mean, it’s in the name. What else would I expect? I enjoyed his passion balanced with delivery of valid criticism, and he also made his name as a huge proponent of consumer values, which, in spite of my criticism of certain people in the past, I’m still a huge fan of people getting their value for money. So he definitely played a fundamental part in my life. Another thing that I followed was his politics. It always appeared that he fell into the moderate but passionate left, while still being empathetic towards other views. It was a few weeks back, I was browsing the internet for the latest spice, and decided to see if there were any new Angry Joe videos. I don’t watch them on a particularly regular basis at this point, mainly because of my own commitments, University and YouTube equally take up their fair share of time, and I’m still expected to be social to keep up appearances. However, I noticed that one of his most recent videos had a particularly poor like to dislike ratio, that being this cheeky bugger. Now, at first, this didn’t surprise me hugely, he’d done other videos in the past that had been poorly received, particularly the ones where he just ranted impromptu at a camera, at the time I moved on, I was just looking for videos to watch. However, a few hours later I heard that it was something a bit more contentious, and then someone messaged me, and then videos came out. And so I was like okay, what is the spice then lads? Well to understand the spice, we have to go to the root, so let’s take a little trip. This is Battlefield, I assume most of you know Battlefield, I sure know Battlefield, I personally played Call of Duty more than the franchise, but that was only because at the time, most of my mates played Call of Duty too. “Oooh The Right Opinion played it because his friends did”, shut up, I was 13 and had to manually decipher how socialising worked. I went through a period of copying and pasting highest rated insults off a website onto my Facebook page, they were dark days, alright? Alright… So yeah, Battlefield, it’s a game, that people played, and gaming a few years ago, was in a sticky situation. You see, there’s this thing with Call of Duty too, where both games are released fairly regularly, annually for the CoD franchise, now whereas many games typically wait years to have sequels, if they have sequels at all, this idea of a game a year was properly ingrained into the culture. However, like with every progression, you need new ideas, and so there was a chronological movement, typically forward, and with these series we gradually, or quickly, moved into the future, and honestly, in many people’s opinions, it was a bit bad. Not because there was anything bad about the idea, but for many people, the overwhelming amount of gadgets and flashy visuals seemed to replace player skill. It just became all a little silly. So Battlefield, noticing this, smartly decided to go back in time, to World War I, for Battlefield One, which, was given great praise by many critics, which, in spite of the slightly short single player campaign, was supplemented by an excellent multiplayer which had some pretty cool features...

The Boogie2988 Problem - How It Hurts His Reputation | TRO

The Boogie2988 Problem - How It Hurts His Reputation | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Boogie2988 Problem - How It Hurts His Reputation | TRO Intro: I went to Vidcon. I had a great time met a load of top lads and handsome chaps, and if I did have the chance to meet you then I hope to see you again, and if I didn’t, I will be at conventions in the future hopefully, and it’d be cool to see you there. I was inside one of halls at Vidcon, as the roaming fees are absolutely insane I had to rely on WiFi, and there were only certain places I could attain it, this hall was one of those places. But it was fairly late, the hall was fairly empty, and I was messaging people to try and ascertain their location so we could go and chill. Then, I saw something, the doors opening, I turn my attention. Lo and behold, there stood Billy The Fridge, and there sat, in his mobility scooter, Boogie2988. They were stopped by another fan and they told them that they were on the way to a meeting, so I decided against intercepting them myself. I am a courteous gentleman. For the very few who are unaware, Boogie2988 is a YouTuber known for a range of videos. He has this persona, Francis, who is a satirical take on gamers, and then his other set of serious videos which discusses some more deeper and personal topics. So I saw them, I let them go. I didn’t have anything to speak to them about regardless,I mean what could have possibly unfolded over a few days of banter at Vidcon? Well… Due to my lack of internet in many places, I paid less attention to the internet, and when I did, it was typically at unsociable hours. So when someone asked me what I thought of the Boogie situation, my response was “Wait, what?”. Yes, apparently the time I saw him, a situation was actually at the peak of unfolding, one very interesting discussion, which were to result in an eventual apology from the man in question. I’ll explain the basic situation before going into an exploration phase. The situation that arose wasn’t actually sourced at Vidcon, it was sourced briefly before Vidcon, when Boogie made an appearance on the h3 podcast, you know the podcast, hosted by h3. It’s in the name. But anyhow, he was on there, and the topic of Vidcon 2017 came up, an event I’ll be covering in more depth later. But to summarise, he hosted a panel with Video Game Feminist Anita Sarkeesian, and at the end of the panel he said something that she objected to, and this led to a confrontation and subsequent discussion. However, during this discussion about this incident Boogie said something that people took objection to. He made a comment about gay marriage that some felt was in poor form, this led to a lot of back and forth between Boogie and these critics, and eventually led to him retracting his original statement. This inevitably led to accusations that Boogie was fence-sitting, some for the comments he made, and then some for the subsequent retraction. However, this isn’t really new, in fact, Boogie has been in this position times before, even the original situation where he made a video on meeting Anita he received the same accusations. Unfortunately, you can’t please everyone. However, generally, I do believe that people should stand for what they believe in, and shouldn’t just cater to every side, as although these things often bank on some sort of subjectivity, there is a societal context that may make a certain choice preferable. So today, what I’m going to be doing is doing my own little personal investigation into whether Boogie can be considered a fence sitter, initiating with a little exploration, discussion and then reapplying it to the situation in question so we can hopefully come to a bit more of a steadfast conclusion on it. So what I did is I pulled up a selection of Boogie videos over the last few years in which he covered drama, some more contentious than others. To try and decipher if he’s been employing any tactics that we would be able to pin down to fence-sitting, pandering or anything else. Maybe I was pleasantly surprised and found him to be a man of strong principle, just of elaborate reasoning… I’ve watched a few Boogie videos on drama in my time, but generally I don’t follow him too closely. So although some of these were revisits, most of them were looked at with fresh eyes. Well let’s discuss it. - CHECK OUT THE EDITORS! - iWaffleTV: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgMsb_pjK_tJmrm-npoAkuQ - Sir Cheeseknight: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6ThPBLQ6dfeRLkDskw62uQ - DampBroadcast: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO82dbDOrkwl6NN0dOFqEow - WorkingUsername: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZpQH8Q9QjmyY9h-MLVgtlA - Benjamin Rogers: https://twitter.com/BenjaminRogersX - Thumbnail: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpCeUlldSsXKRwJvFLYw64w - Outro: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyuNHQVfhMgszyJ2FRPfHUg

The Tea Spilling Saga - How Jeffree Star Became More Important Than Jake Paul | TRO

The Tea Spilling Saga - How Jeffree Star Became More Important Than Jake Paul | TRO

The Right Opionion: The Tea Spilling Saga - How Jeffree Star Became More Important Than Jake Paul | TRO Intro: Careers were launched, reputations were established, and people were, once again, falling head over heels for drama that seemed so inconsequential in many of our lives. Summer 18 was around the corner, many were anticipating the shenanigans that all of these characters would be caught up in. Or at least we thought they were. Because, as the holidays dawned, there was a distinct lack of interest. In fact, fellow YouTuber Nerd City released a video in which he documented all of Jake Paul’s antics over the summer, antics that were arguably much worse than anything originally documented in 2017, and yet, if it hadn’t been for some very ruthless marketing, in spite of its excellency, it probably wouldn’t have even reached its current view count. 700,000, not bad, but hardly the peaks of the drama over the previous year. So where had all the views gone? I think it’s time for a story. I think we’ve had enough of those sorts of storytimes. Anyhow, I have a Twitter, and like most people with a Twitter, I follow people. When people follow me I typically check out their account to see what sort of individuals I’m appealing to, and in some instances they may be YouTubers, for whom I’ll check out their channel and see if their Twitter’s worth keeping up with, and at some point over the summer a person by the name of TeaSpill followed me. I checked out their channel, around fifteen thousand subscribers, not a bad amount going on. So I thought, “You know what, I’ll follow them back, see what happens with their channel”. They also had their subscriptions public and because I have a bit of a vanity project going on, I often check my most popular subscribers, see whose attention I have, and I noticed they were subscribed to me but fairly low down in the pecking order. However, with every passing week I noticed them climbing, gradually and then rapidly ascending, and I thought to myself “What on earth is going on”, this channel was going from 15k, to 30k, to 60k, to 150k. So this is when I found about all these people, Laura Lee, Manny Mua, Jeffree Star, NikkieTutorials, so many more, and if we were going by their thumbnails and titles, this was a non stop festival just pure drama, and to be honest, they looked like people who loved a bit of spice. So what of this new rise to the top for such individuals? Well they’re members of what is known as the “Beauty Community”, now when you’re as good looking as me, you don’t really need any makeup to stay beautiful, however, as implied, these are a set of creators who are focused on the testing of commercial beauty projects. But this isn’t any old beauty community, we’re not talking about Zoella here, as interesting as that is. No, we’re talking about the community that has birthed the tea spilling phrase, and embodied a culture like no other. And you’ll soon see what I mean. This sort of content seems to have been performing fairly successfully for a while, the most prominent creator in this community is Jeffree Star, who has a fairly hefty ten million subscribers. The content has definitely diversified in the last few months, but I think that’s okay for someone like Star, whose definitely playing off his somewhat buoyant personality. With the rise of channels like TeaSpill and other content creators reporting on what’s going on, it seems there must be a lot to discuss. As said, there are a load of other prominent figures in this community, and really the question that I want to answer at the end of all this is why? Why did people start caring about the drama of a community that had been functioning fairly competently for years prior, and why should people care, or should people care? These are all questions that many of us here will seek to decipher today, because honestly, I’m just as confused as the rest of you.

What Happened To Behind The Meme? A Victim Of The Hate | TRO

What Happened To Behind The Meme? A Victim Of The Hate | TRO

The Right Opinion: What Happened To Behind The Meme? The Victim Of The Hate? | TRO Intro: Today we’re dealing with the tragic tale of Behind The Meme and issues surrounding semantics regarding that, and boy, do we have a lot to discuss, however, today I want to also talk about philosophy too, because I think it encompasses an interesting element of content creation, and we’ll get to that in a bit, but first, Behind The Meme, who is he, to all those who may not be aware of his infamy. So essentially, Behind The Meme is a meme channel set up by creator Kyle Bryce, don’t worry his name is public, which he brands as having the intention of educating those who are unfamiliar with memes, providing the audience with a relatively light explanation of the origin of the meme and applications of it. To take a quick example, Harambe, Harambe is a gorilla who eventually became a meme after the meme connoisseurs picked it, and in this instance Behind The Meme explains how Harambe has came to be, you know, whole enclosure incident, satirisation of people’s reaction, and so on. These videos rapidly picked up steam, with views coming in from the first upload. This wasn’t Kyle’s first channel, so he knew how to make his video semi-competent, although you can tell his microphone isn’t the best, he quickly upgraded and realised the business opportunity. It was all going right, video after video was a hit with the audience, and he was flying high with an audience who had his back. Yet fast forward less than two and half years later, and it’s almost like we’ve stepped into a different dimension. The happy, colourful Behind The Meme is gone, and in his place is a shell, a shell that is the draw of multiple controversies over the span of a year. What happened? Well after a spell where his videos were performing abysmally with views and ratings alike, he took a break, now we’ll delve into the details of why this flatlined in a bit, stay patient my friends. However, with every break, came the return. And Behind The Meme came back to a fanfare of broken brass. However, the video he posted “What happened to Behind The Meme” seemed to represent a perspective of hope, one in which he had been dragged down by so much, but now he was in a better place, ready not to fumble this situation. He had almost 800,000 subscribers, most of us will never receive that opportunity. He was a new man, ready to take on the world. But then he posted a five part series, which were abstract in their presentation and disturbing in their subtext, with vague, foreshadowing language. A far cry from his initially rather innocent, child-friendly content of his meme synopsis videos. This understandably had people concerned. Now we’re going to address that in due course, but I wanted to provide a quick rundown of what’s going on. Today I have a lot of questions, that many people have, why did this happen, why did the innocent meme reviewer end up in what must be some sort of delusional state of mind, what were the causes of this, were these causes justified? How could such a cheerful person, so intent on spreading knowledge turn into one of the most twisted characters online.

The Mistakes of Doug Walker - The Channel Awesome Legacy | TRO

The Mistakes of Doug Walker - The Channel Awesome Legacy | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Mistakes of Doug Walker - The Channel Awesome Legacy | TRO Intro: If I were to list off channels that served as motivation for my YouTube career, Channel Awesome, and most notably, Doug Walker aka. The Nostalgia Critic was one of them. Every Tuesday night, I grab a takeaway and pull up my laptop, and watch his latest review in an almost ritualistic manner, that habit has continued until today, even though I’m not unconditionally in love with his content, it’s hard to deny that they’ve brought me gems like Sharkboy and Lavagirl that had me chuckling for days following, and I don’t laugh at much, so for someone as emotionally soulless as me, to have that sort of content to at least entertain the vacuum was meaningful, and I’ve learned a lot about cinema and the standards surrounding it through the indirect messages often portrayed in their episodes. I found out about The Nostalgia Critic through ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, I can’t exactly say how that happened, we’re talking about approximately 2011 when I discovered their content, so bringing specifics into my memory is a challenge to say the least, though I will say that I also discovered two other critics, ToddInTheShadows and The Rap Critic in quick succession, although I’m not certain which order, but much alike to the NC, they are two critics whom I still watch to this day. I’m not going to enter too much depth as I assume it’s a story you already know by now, but ThatGuyWithTheGlasses was set up by a partnership between Doug Walker and a few people we’ll get to in a moment, this was done in light of the very stringent copyright rules regarding YouTube and a situation regarding his series of 5 second movies, this is covered in a nice article that I’ll link below, now whether that’s fair use or not, is very subjective, it’s the sort of comedic cutting that came into contention earlier last year with Sargon of Akkad and Akilah Obviously, but either way, hosting videos on Blip and using their domain as a way to embed their content, they decided it would be reasonable to host a numerous selection of creators. But wait a minute I hear you say, who are “they”, well Doug Walker, we’ve already introduced, his brother, Rob Walker, and a third individual named Mike Michaud. The two other individuals were Mike Ellis, and Bhargav Dronamraju, the latter of which there isn’t too much to say, and the former whom we’ll address later. Now, if you’re thinking to yourself, “huh, I’ve never heard of him”, don’t worry, I hadn’t heard of him until a couple days back when I coincidentally found myself on their Wikipedia page briefly before the document in question was released. I remember thinking to myself “I’ve never heard of this bloke, what does he do?”, well, things, he does things, things that we’ll address very soon. I was having a discussion with Quinton Reviews over this a couple weeks before the documents were released, we had both noted how many creators had left abruptly and seemingly with little notice, we’d wondered about the explanations for such decisions, well, on April the second, after rumbles of activity, we received their full side of the story. The document itself is a seventy page condemnation of Channel Awesome, and their questionable behaviour and incidents that resulted due to it, now I’m someone who always look into such claims with an element of scepticism, it’s an integral part of my philosophy, because if I didn’t then I think that such an approach could be easily exploited by people with malintent, although I do completely comprehend that it’s a tender subject. Even with that said, the sheer number of corroborating testimonies and accounts makes it hard to dispute, saying any of it is false at all is a push, they persuaded me over the benefit of the doubt line for Channel Awesome. I’ve read all seventy pages, and it’s convincing content. - CHECK OUT THE EDITORS! - r1c33: https://twitter.com/r1c33 - Sir Cheeseknight: https://www.youtube.com/c/sircheeseknight - WorkingUsername: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZpQH8Q9QjmyY9h-MLVgtlA - Peter Day: https://www.youtube.com/user/genericmilk - MrFluffySavage: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrFluffySavage - Thumbnail: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpCeUlldSsXKRwJvFLYw64w - Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRightOpinion - Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/therightopinion - Discord: https://discord.gg/VKFReyr

The Mistakes Of Nicole Arbour - How To Ruin: This Is America | TRO

The Mistakes Of Nicole Arbour - How To Ruin: This Is America | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Mistakes Of Nicole Arbour - How To Ruin: This Is America | TRO Intro: In case anyone isn’t aware I’m a man of music, I have reviewed music on this channel, I have covered various controversies with regards to music, I’ve talked about provocative content, and it creates probably some of my most polarising content. I’m also a trained singer-songwriter, and I guarantee when I get the chance The Right Opinion is dropping a fire album. But that’s besides the point, I realise that now I’m doing longer content, that it’s not gonna be so easy to just chuck out my opinions on music, and often given the length of a song, it’s hard to talk in the mini-documentary styles that I do. But that won’t stop me from trying, and every now and then, an absolute sitter comes in, and I have to take a swing. Enter stage left Nicole Arbour, the comedian slash YouTube personality has caused a fair bit of commotion throughout her career, infamously in 2015 she decided to release a video known as Dear Fat People, in which she lambasted obese individuals for their excessive weight, and told them to lose it in quite a crude manner. A lot of people took offense to the blunt way she attacked others, and yeah it is rather insensitive, and revisiting it in preparation for this video. In all honesty, the only thing I found offensive was unfunny it was. Now, I accept that comedy is subjective, but it was all distraction comedy with no real punchline to me. But yeah, I can understand why people were annoyed by it, and in true controversial fashion she released a part two, I assume because she had so much more to develop on from the first one. The other major controversy that you probably know of, is of the abuse allegations. In which, ex-boyfriend and fellow YouTuber Matthew Santoro, alleged that Arbour had isolated him and exploited his weakness, Arbour denied the allegations, and it sadly became a “he said, she said” case, that will probably never be fully resolved, but it had been a couple years and she had ducked out of the public eye. I certainly wasn’t thinking about her. Enter stage right Donald Glover aka. Childish Gambino, the jack of all trades has been praised for his work all over the spectrum of media, from scriptwriting to music production, I have to give him props for that. I respect the grind. But realising he had yet to make a vociferous political statement, he decided that why not infuse it with his natural talents, and brought us “This Is America”. The meticulously crafted creation impressed me on both a technical level and an interpretative level, I can’t express how much I appreciate the detail of the subtext and imagery, too many artists just don’t appreciate how much more potent it can make your content. And I think that part of it is the multitude of interpretations, and I’m glad people are discussing it, and hopefully it’ll inspire more profound conversation. But, nothing is sacred, and Nicole Arbour saw a chance to give it her own spin, well not necessarily her own, but a women’s spin, one for women’s rights and highlighting their maltreatment in modern American society. How brave. Now if you are familiar with me, and the title of this video, you will be bracing for the inevitable amount of criticism that is about to come her way. My opinion, is that this is bad, very bad. I heard she’d responded to the criticism, and when I read it, she really did make a compelling case for her content, and then I went and watched it again. And realised, it doesn’t matter how pure the message is, if you deliver it in a dodgy way. Due to the backlash she has subsequently disabled ratings and comments, but it wasn’t well received to say the least, with many people claiming she had completely butchered what the original stood for. Now, many have criticised her as making a cynical cash in riding on the coattails of something so much better, but I’m going to go into this video with an optimistic outlook on her character. - CHECK OUT THE EDITORS! - Corticera: https://www.youtube.com/user/origamimaster717 - HariusAwesome: https://www.youtube.com/user/HariusAwesome - Blunderly: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvGNl_iR19qLadAEIOouFAw - ColeoIsCooleo: https://www.youtube.com/user/ColeoIsCooleo - Thumbnail: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpCeUlldSsXKRwJvFLYw64w - Outro: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyuNHQVfhMgszyJ2FRPfHUg - Special thanks to my Patreons: Mr Radiance, Low60, Mac Mauder - Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRightOpinion - Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/therightopinion - Discord: https://discord.gg/VKFReyr

Here Lies: Rags - Stop Hating What I Like | TRO (ft. A Special Guest)

Here Lies: Rags - Stop Hating What I Like | TRO (ft. A Special Guest)

The Right Opinion: Here Lies: Rags - Stop Hating What I Like | TRO (ft. A Special Guest) Intro (Credits at foot): I’ve been busy, understandably so, this video was quite the undertaking, but I wanted to give it some sort of weight, and I hope I do. A while back, I Hate Everything made a video on Star Wars, I won’t say much more, because we’re going to be addressing a lot of it very soon. It was one of his more controversial releases for many reasons, and ready to dispute it, was a YouTuber by the name of Rags. Now, Rags appears to be a creator who talks about a mix of media and politics, particularly with leaning into the entertainment industry, which is an interesting genre, without a doubt. Going on his channel, I like dogs, and I like dildos, so we’re practically best mates at this point. All joking aside, I had only heard of Rags once before the video we’ll be speaking about today, (I told you guys I was out of the loop), but it was when he had a Twitter account, and some artist refused to do work for him because of a couple of people he was associated with. Although it’s perfectly reasonable to say that it’s the artist’s prerogative of who they want to do work for, it’s still very personal, and indicative of the state of the political community. That we really have that much passionate distaste for someone that we’d rather not serve them because of their friends or opinions. I’m about to criticise Rags, maybe pretty harshly, I would still offer him the time of day because to me, content doesn’t define the person. But as I said, that was my only experience, so I went into this video with a very fresh mind on Rags. Obviously I had my opinions on the film, I thought it was okay, I’m probably someone who fell in the middle of the consensus, I liked some elements and hated others, I felt it was a prospectively great film that messed up too much, impressive but frustrating, so it understandably provoked strong feelings in a lot of viewers, because it definitely took risks, but I also don’t think it’s as bad as some people make it out to be, especially considering my general standards of cinema. In I Hate Everything’s video, as IHE testified, I’d conducted a comb through for any syntactic issues, and made some amendments with regards to structure, I don’t touch the points he actually makes, but the content didn’t jump out at me as particularly provocative, and it didn’t when I watched the video either, my only feedback to him at the time was that the delivery felt a bit subdued, apart from the rather over the top segment at the end, nonetheless, I thought it was fine, not my favourite but it didn’t irritate me; others clearly felt otherwise, Rags being one of them, from now, I’ll be responding to Rags’s points, and trying to make sense of how such points have arisen. I disagree with Rags, at multiple times throughout this video, as you will see soon, and as IHE didn’t feel like responding himself, then I thought I’d have a crack, so without further ado, let’s get into it.

The Disturbing World of Lil Tay - The Truth Behind The 9 Year Old

The Disturbing World of Lil Tay - The Truth Behind The 9 Year Old "Flexer" | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Disturbing World of Lil Tay - The Truth Behind The 9 Year Old "Flexer" | TRO Intro: I don’t normally go into such topics, I think it’s best to leave the reaction commentators to their own devices, but every now and then, something deeply disconcerting comes along, something that drives me to action, and today that person is “Lil Tay”. Lil Tay is a child, nine years old, to be specific, she likes to make that clear in her videos, in case you hadn’t noticed. She is an instagram star, and basically posts a lot of videos of her gloating over her fortune, and boy, everyone just eats this up, she socialises with rap virtuosos such as Chief Keef. In case you didn’t know, Lil Tay has a load of houses, and a load of cars, and a load of money, more money than you, the viewer, yes, she be flexing. Constantly there, to remind you how inadequate your own life is. On the surface, it seems like another embarrassing new low for social media, but when I sat down to think about it, many questions came to my head, many things that I couldn’t shake, things that I had to find out for myself. Most people just point and laugh at her antics, but that’s underselling what’s going on here, isn’t it? Today, I will tell you a story, that many a man dare not to go. When I started this script it was a simple concept, observe and dissect the Lil Tay situation, however, as I researched more and more, the truth became worryingly clear to me. Further information: On Friday it was also revealed that Lil Tay’s mother was a real estate agent (no surprise there). I wonder where it will go from here. Here's a good article on the topic that came out yesterday, apparently her mother's in on it too, kinda sad: http://www.scmp.com/culture/music/article/2144729/who-lil-tay-behind-illusion-nine-year-old-asian-rapper-and-internet - Check out the editors! - HappyCraftTV: https://www.youtube.com/user/Happycraftcom - Blunderly: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvGNl_iR19qLadAEIOouFAw - iWaffleTV: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyvwMyf05osB4k55OJ6b4Hw - MrFluffySavage: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrFluffySavage - Thumbnail: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpCeUlldSsXKRwJvFLYw64w - Outro: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyuNHQVfhMgszyJ2FRPfHUg - Special thanks to my Patreons: Mr Radiance, Low60, Mac Mauder - Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRightOpinion - Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/therightopinion - Discord: https://discord.gg/VKFReyr Links https://www.instagram.com/liltay/?hl=en - Lil Tay’s Instagram https://www.instagram.com/icyrycie/ - Lil Tay’s “Owner’s” Instagram https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WracHcw2dGE - Lil Tay Cries https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMnsjIL_lxaq1wJpDloncLw - Icy Rycie’s Channel (Lil Tay’s brother)

The Morality of Michael McCrudden - Is It Wrong? | TRO

The Morality of Michael McCrudden - Is It Wrong? | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Morality of Michael McCrudden - Is It Wrong? Intro: And boy have I been waiting for a time to do this video, and in a way I could’ve done it sooner, but there’s just a timeless appeal to me, I had bigger fish to fry at the time so I left it in the lake. But now, The Right Opinion has his rod out, wait, that’s not what I meant. But anyhow, this man is Michael McCrudden. Michael McCrudden is a person, I use the term “person” to the most broad effect, but he does still classify in my books as a human being, just about. He has been the topic of hot controversy in the last few months. You see, Michael McCrudden owns his own channel, in which he talks about celebrities, before they were famous, after they were famous, their rich life, a few other side series, and most notoriously, before they were gone. We’ll be using that last one to talk about a lot of questions that have been flaring up amongst the community, because McCrudden has probably been the best example of what happens when people become slightly too opportunistic and slip into the public eye. But why? Well, when someone passes away, many think it’s important to be respectful of the deceased and give them and their family some space during the times of mourning. However, McCrudden’s philosophy has come to show that he might not be so concerned with that, now I’ve always been vaguely aware of McCrudden’s channel, but more as an onlooker rather than a commentator, he’s a significant size, in spite of the incredibly inconsistent view counts. Other than the regular allegations that not all his facts are completely accurate, the first taste of controversy that he gave me was when my friend James Marriott decided to release a video criticising him for his video on Lil Peep. All in all, it’s quite a good video, and one that we might revisit in a bit, it definitely levels some very legitimate criticisms. I considered covering it back then, but it wasn’t exactly my cup of tea, however, over the last couple months it has definitely brewed, and now The Right Opinion, is ready to serve up piping hot Earl Grey. Delish. Michael McCrudden, on the other hand, is finding himself in a metaphorical sort of hot water, after the rather sudden exit of extremely popular and equally controversial rapper, XXXTentacion, he was criticised for making not one, not two, but three videos in quick succession, all capitalising. They were shameless to say the least. This led to a lot of outrage and criticism, which subsequently led to a lot of videos, and then consequently led to a lot of people asking if these videos were hypocritical in how they behaved, and if McCrudden was even in the wrong at all. Essentially people were tripping over themselves in attempt to have the moral high ground. A similar situation occurred earlier this year with Logan Paul, many asserted that those who made videos on his little voyage were no better than him, particularly those who then decided to monetise and sponsor those videos. Most people have contradicted themselves here and there, when they’re slight details like the ones in question, it doesn’t make you a bad person because you may not be thinking about it. However, I am The Right Opinion, the blessed messiah for all you argumentation, and I’ve been mulling this over for a while, and I propose myself to be the one to lay out some ground rules for conditions that may or may not affect whether a situation could be considered distasteful, and to help you get a clearer grip on your opinion. Allow me to clarify that in this video I will mostly avoid pushing for one position, I will state my opinion at the end after applying all the conditions that I deem relevant, but the thing is there are many reasoned arguments that can be made for all points of view, but hopefully by the end we’ll be able to distinguish the ImAllexxes from the Michael McCruddens, if you know what I mean. You might come out thinking neither of them were acceptable, you might think both of them were acceptable, but let’s clear the air a bit, alright?
