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.

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.

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

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 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.

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?

WORST DAD ON YOUTUBE: How repulsive was the hidden content of DaddyOFive?

WORST DAD ON YOUTUBE: How repulsive was the hidden content of DaddyOFive?

UPDATE: September 11, 2017: Mike and Heather Martin pleaded guilty to the charges and were sentenced to five years of probation. UPDATE: August 9, 2017 Criminal charges of "Neglect of a Minor" filed on 7/27 in Frederick County Maryland against Mike and Heather Martin coincide with the dates of the DaddyOFive Youtube channel they operated. May 1, 2017: Cody and Emma are back with their biological mother, Rose! Emergency custody was granted. The situation around the Do5 channel is sill unfolding. This video is the result of a deep dive on Daddyofive's channel that began with a Reddit tip on r/nerdcity over a month ago. After the abusive nature of Mike Martin's content was exposed by Philip DeFranco this past week, the situation around Daddyofive's channel has been rapidly evolving. The family's more than 265 videos have now been either removed or set to private. But for over a year, Daddyofive built a massively popular channel on the back of this disturbing content with little to no media attention. This is what we found when researching his content prior to this becoming a trending story.

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.

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.

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

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.

This 11 Year Old Instagram Model Was Used By Her Father - MelodyOficial3 | TRO

This 11 Year Old Instagram Model Was Used By Her Father - MelodyOficial3 | TRO

Go to https://expressvpn.com/tro to take back your Internet privacy TODAY and find out how you can get 3 months free. The Right Opinion: This 11 Year Old Instagram Model Was Used By Her Father - MelodyOficial3 | TRO I’ve spoken about in the past, and I’ll likely speak about them in the future. I’d say in my new style I properly covered this sensation was in my Lil’ Tay video, which once again attributed a strange fixation to this idea, the point of that video was to document how fascinated we become when someone behaves in a way that is not necessarily expected of them, and because of that exceptionalism they quickly spike to fame. Whenever you’re doing something that has an appeal, that no-one else is doing, you will typically gain fame for it, and there are many other factors that will determine the longevity. However, with someone like Lil’ Tay, the whole system is broken, the fact that it is driven off being more and more audacious, it is destined to slide into an absolute burn out, or you end up not being able to keep up, the outcomes are not particularly rosy, and if none of that fails to kill your career, growing up will. Premature fame is not something that really should be glorified, we’ll always need such individuals in our media, particularly in areas such as film, to make sure they are provided representation, at the same time, the unique mental circumstances that an individual encounters cannot be discounted, and cannot be exposed to the ravenous hordes of internet dwellers like many of us YouTubers. There are nuances to this argument, and I’ll probably address them another time, particularly when that person might be able to exert adult levels of influence, but most of the time these people are just puppets for fame hungry parents, and/or siblings, who want to find ways to exploit that reliance to make them conduct certain actions that arouse online interest, and use the fact that they’re not autonomous to claim any profits and benefits, it’s a scummy but unsurprisingly common dynamic that you’ll find, and these kids are often the ones who take the mental fall from it. However, Lil Tay, was as predicted, a brief fad, that was in itself, an escalation of a juxtaposition between adult behaviour and appearance, one that could inevitably not be topped, and left a trail of destruction in the culture that had ultimately set her up, though admittedly one that I find rather refreshing. However, the death of one market always leads to the rise of a new one, and the thing is that although many trends are short-lived, they are almost always borne out of a longer-term human interest, these long term human interest provide anchors, and unfortunately, the fascination with them being placed in environments that would seem surreal for them is a constant one, and today, more than ever, this has pushed into a serious boundary. I’m gonna leave this narrative on hold, because the new market leads us to this very interesting individual, known as MelodyOficial3, now MelodyOficial3 is a Brazilian figure online, her real name is Gabriela Severino, and according to the very quaint Wikipedia page, she’s a singer and songwriter, all at the age of eleven, wow very impressive feat. She has released a plethora of singles, ones that I’m sure we’ll reach at some point in this video, a few of these songs have even performed well in the Brazilian charts, she’s been around since 2015, from the age of eight, so she’s already had more of an esteemed music career than yours truly. One day Morning Sun, one day. However, today, as we’ll see, she’s in the YouTube headlines, well, in this video at least, so The Right Opinion headlines, for certain conduct that is much more questionable than just writing songs. You see I have a friend, I know, surprising, he goes by the name Marriott, James Marriott, and he made this video on someone he branded as Danielle Cohn’s sister, which you know, I used my genius to decipher that it wasn’t actually Danielle Cohn’s sister, the resemblance just wasn’t there, but that’s besides the point, it’s spicy clickbait, and although I love a good James Marriott video, I didn’t really have the time so I passed up on it, and anyway, he didn’t need my patronage, his video was enticing enough for a couple million other people.

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

The Rise Of Emma Chamberlain - Did She Become Everything She Hated? | TRO

The Rise Of Emma Chamberlain - Did She Become Everything She Hated? | TRO

The Right Opinion: The Rise Of Emma Chamberlain - Did She Become Everything She Hated? | TRO I first heard about Emma Chamberlain when a friend mentioned her to me in passing, told me that it would make a good video and there was a lot of content to discuss. I encountered here again when I was making my Beauty Community video, I was doing research of people who were involved in it, and she came up, now I didn’t include her in that video because I didn’t really consider herself necessarily part of that community, but she was working with individuals like James Charles and so I stumbled into her, I knew that there were a lot of videos being made, and I was like, alright, well she looks like a fairly regular lass, you know, whatever floats her boat. There were more videos, and more videos, and I didn’t know what was happening, but now I finally had a bit more time freed up, I decided to look into it because now, with a bit of research I can fairly affirmatively say that this is a very interesting case. So, Emma Chamberlain is a 17 year old Vlogger, which you know is incredibly depressing but hey who cares, definitely not me, I don’t care. *Sigh* Anyhow, she started her vlogging channel last year, and vlogging is an incredibly saturated genre, I’ve had friends who tried vlogging and it didn’t work out for them, mainly because I think it’s so hard to define yourself with something that like 99% of other people have, the only thing is that I do receive the impression that a lot of people enjoy vlogging, which probably explains the numerous creators, I mean, in a way, if I could do something like that, I probably would, one day, my friends, The Vlogging Opinion will I’m sure be a reality… But Emma Chamberlain isn’t just any vlogger, in fact, many have branded her the anti-vlogger, and I think that’s a really interesting way to describe her, you see, her brand is definitely unique, and it’s clear why her ascension to the top of the YouTube totem pole was so rapid, she has this very sardonic tone that doesn’t really fit in with the normal YouTube vibes. There has been this narrative drummed up recently that many creators themselves have fallen out of touch with the desires of their viewers, I’ve heard it increasingly of recent, and honestly, on one hand it’s a sentiment I agree with, particularly with that in the vlogging industry, but on the flipside I also feel part of that change has been undertaken by the audience, the shift in general sentiment, rather than the creators necessarily, that’s just made their ploys more transparent, on one hand, fame definitely pushes people out of sphere, but I think people are just increasingly aware of it. Emma Chamberlain definitely plays into that self-awareness, with the sort of snark and sass definitely needed, and we’ll explore the success very soon, but it does have its flaws. And in the last few months, as noted Emma Chamberlain’s been in a bit of hot water, drama, after drama, after drama, firsty for a merchandising situation, and then for behaviours that show a double standard that didn’t match the attitude of her old content. This in a way, goes hand in hand, with a lot of the rise of commentary on these creators, we’ve definitely become more critical towards the vlogging community, this is for better, and for worse, as documented in my previous videos, on one hand it pushes the community for higher standards, on the other hand I think sometimes the criticism can lean into unreasonable territories, and at the end of the day it’s important that we, as creators have some sort of gauge on our own criticism. I’ve often clashed with fellow creators over the notion of criticising our peers, because in many ways, a cohesive community is a functional one, and doing that is often seen as burning bridges, but at The Right Opinion, we always come equipped with a molotov cocktail, so cheers to that. There will be sometimes when I agree, sometimes when I don’t. Today we participate in that exercise of critical thinking because Emma Chamberlain has been the subject of extensive criticism, that itself should be brought into the light and scrutinised, just like Emma Chamberlain has been.

Why This YouTuber Can't Stop Eating - Amberlynn Reid | TRO

Why This YouTuber Can't Stop Eating - Amberlynn Reid | TRO

The Right Opinion: Why This YouTuber Can't Stop Eating - Amberlynn Reid | TRO With the shift in cultural focus by many people, it appears that access to consumption and sedentary lifestyle has created what many view as an epidemic, particularly in countries like the US, where obesity has ballooned, there are many reasons why this might be considered. However, with the existence of fat people, comes the existence of fat YouTubers. Larger YouTubers are nothing particularly new, you’re dealing with a platform that is based online, many people on the platform are not the most active, and they might even find appeal within their great weight. However, from this transpired a new genre, this mainly revolved around weight loss, the reason should be fairly obvious: we as viewers, typically look for some element of ourselves in the creator, whether that’s something that we currently have, or something that we aspire to be, now when you have a weight loss YouTuber, this is someone that we should follow their journey with. We find inspiration in their progress, maybe you are an overweight person, but at the same time, you’re an introvert, or an agoraphobe, and don’t want to show your body at a Weight Watchers meeting, maybe they can give some advice on how to lose weight from the realms of the screen, although it may not be sufficient to make you lose weight on its own, they may provide inspiration, may provide you with that extra motivation, and then maybe you can document your journey online too, and inspire other people to come along with you. The problem is that this vision doesn’t always happen, and sometimes people themselves aren’t strong enough to create that arc through their own volition, and thus the story changes very significantly, and because they’re documenting all on YouTube, suddenly this augments into something much uglier, this is where we reach today’s creator, the creator known as Amberlynn Reid. It was a late evening, I had worked on a video only to make the decision that actually, although I wasn’t a fan of the creator’s content, there wasn’t enough to make a video, so I decided to watching a few videos, I knew one of my fellow creators known as Danarchy had released a couple of uploads on these YouTubers who were rather notorious for the handling of their weight on the platform and so, in my crisis I decided to sit down and watch them, and although he was a tad too insulting for my rather polite demeanour, he touched on some important points, that I definitely feel could be expanded on in a Right Opinion video, his content definitely does a great job at individually calling out the YouTubers in question, but what is there beneath the surface? Well let’s talk about the YouTuber in question. This is Amberlynn Reid, she is a 28 year old YouTuber from the United States of America, she recently become a target for a lot of YouTubers, for a multitude of reasons, typically the cycle consists of her doing something, people reacting, people noting her rather counterproductive efforts to lose weight, people noting various other negative traits, such as her apparent compulsion to lie, and deceive her audience, and alleged manipulation of certain situations. Hell, there is a whole channel dedicated to exposing Amberlynn for her weight, that is some spicy commitment considering that many of these videos receive more views than Amber’s videos themselves. Amberlynn appears to be a dubious character for more reasons than just her weight, and although I do consider many of them valid criticism, and would definitely implore people to look into that, that will typically be a secondary narrative of this video, because although I will definitely touch on that, there’s a lot of detail to these stories that I think you can only really see from the testimonies, and I don’t plan on addressing all of those. Though if you are interested, I’ll definitely reference and link some of the more controversial incidents sooner or later in the video, because there is a lot to cover.

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.

Did I Leave Politics? Am I Gay? 50k Q&A | TRO

The Right Opinion - Did I Leave Politics? Am I Gay? 50k Q&A | TRO Hello Ladies and Gentlemen and Welcome to The Right Opinion, the home of a twat with too much free time and 50,000, a fantastic feat. And to be honest, I was going to continue on my normal schedule, I’m a guy with plenty of ideas, and I already had ten other video ideas written down, how am I gonna get to them if I waste time with these sorts of ceremonials? Well, honestly, I think I just need a break. In case you don’t know, I’m a student of Politics, Philosophy, and International Law, with a minor in Psychology, and those courses definitely take their toll, especially when you’re bashing out a ten page script every week. It’s about time management, and so having a script that hopefully I can handle more efficiently this week will give me less stress, because a huge part of scripting is also research and watching through these videos to see what sort of spicy take we can formulate on these topics. I have a Twitter, @TheRightOpinion, and on that Twitter, I put out a Tweet asking for questions for this video, if you don’t have a Twitter then I apologise, next time I’ll put it in my community tab as well, so you can all pose questions. Though I’m not sure when I’ll do something like this next. The Q&A is going to be done in an interesting way, as I received over 200 questions, there will be some I won’t be able to respond to, especially the more memey ones. However, I will be cataloguing the questions into a general topic, and we’ll just walk through them, hopefully addressing various questions, and knocking them out of the park in a fairly efficient manner. There’s a lot to discuss, and I don’t know how long this will take but there are a few things that I wanna get the way which I’d normally put at the end, however, as it’s a special occasion we’ll run with a special structure. I really want to thank my visual editors, without them, I just would never have the time nor patience to make these videos, they do such a sensational job, and if you do have the chance I’m going to leave links below to anyone who has edited for me in the last couple months, please go and send them some love. I also want to thank anyone who’s sought out my Patreon, and donated, I barely ever mention it so the fact that people do actually dig it out is really impressive, however, I do want to take this time out to make announcement. I am going to be conducting a serious reform of rewards. Firstly, because barely anyone claims them, most people just insist they want to donate for the content, secondly, because as always mentioned, most people can attain the rewards without paying, I do my best to be an open person, and I thought that might come under siege as I’ve grown, but I’ve handled it pretty well. Thirdly, because of my current set up it makes it significantly harder to follow through on many of the rewards, and I don’t want to make commitments that I can’t keep, it’s never fun letting people down. If you’ve donated before this video then you’re still entitled to the rewards committed prior, and we’ll sort something out. They’re the only two special thanks I have to make, obviously all my mates and YouTube colleagues know how much love I have for them and that’ll never change, I’m not gonna list them out here but keep hustling boys. Anyhow, with the pleasantries out of the way I want to cut into the crux of the video because there is a lot to discuss. A lot of things about me to discuss.

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)

What Happened To Toby Turner? The End Of A Career | TRO

What Happened To Toby Turner? The End Of A Career | TRO

The Right Opinion: What Happened To Toby Turner? The End Of A Career | TRO When people look back on YouTubers, and ask themselves who have been the most influential creators on the platform, there are many individuals that I’m sure come to mind, people who are relevant now, and people who used to be relevant, whether it’s Pewdiepie, Smosh, Nigahiga, Shane Dawson, or Ray William Johnson, Fred, TheAnnoyingOrange and so on. Many creators past and present have had a significant cultural impact. However, when speaking to people about their childhood, one name that seldom seems to come up, is Toby Turner, or Tobuscus, or TobyGames, despite the fact that I’m sure that a huge number of people have watched at least one video of his. Two of his channels have amassed over 6 million subscribers each which is certainly a feat not to be overlooked. Yet I feel that his story is one that often is overlooked, one that is heavily integrated in the culture that we will discuss today, and one that we can perhaps learn a bit from, and maybe seek to explain, how everyone forgot about Toby Turner, hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to The Right Opinion, the home of a twat with too much free time, and bless your face. I’m sure not everyone is aware of who Toby Turner is but for a basic rundown he is one of the original YouTubers on the platform, who began his craft in 2006, and twelve years later is still going, as mentioned, it’s not to the intensity that he used to, after he probably made a fat stack of cash in his time, or at least enough to keep him going, I can’t look into a man’s bank account. He ascended to his peak around the turn of the 2010s, particularly encompassed by the success of his Literal Trailer series, on top of this he also had a gaming channel, in which he would achieve even greater results in terms of subscribers, in spite of a marginally lower view count. Generally if you ask someone involved with YouTube what has been their most recent experience with him, chances are it’ll be the allegations, now at the time this was created in a Tumblr post by an individual named April Fletcher and this information isn’t wholly relevant right now, but I am going to bring it back up in the future for why it is important. Turner had three succeeding channels, had made videos that are pretty much iconic in many people’s childhoods, and had so much media branching out in so many various directions he almost seemed set to succeed, rewatching a video in preparation by FootOfAFerret in which he runs down the brief history of our good friend Toby here, he says this. So it does indeed beg the question, what happened? Even I’m not entirely sure yet, but by the end of the video, I’m sure we’ll have a definitive answer. Turner is still uploading content to this day on his channel, mostly more commentary facecam oriented, and talking about various random topics that interest him, some topics more trending, others more spontaneous, or personal to him. Given the fact that I don’t think there’s really too much else to summarise in this situation, which is a bit earlier than normal, we’re running ahead of schedule lads but I consider that a good thing, without further ado, I suggest we get right into it.

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?

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.

How Philip DeFranco Became A Target - Should People Be Freaking Out? | TRO

How Philip DeFranco Became A Target - Should People Be Freaking Out? | TRO

The Right Opinion: How Philip DeFranco Became A Target - Should People Be Freaking Out? | TRO Intro: One of the platform’s veterans for multiple reasons. Philip DeFranco embodies how success within YouTube can expand and develop in many unique ways, the 32 year old has been on the platform for over 10 years now and he has had his fair share of prosperity, but there are always two sides to the coin, and when you’re top of the totem pole, the knives are never too far from your throat. Often my videos will involve talking about a long chain of events, and the chain of events that inspired the DeFranco show are too many to detail into one section. However, I will give a brief overview of his history. DeFranco started up his channel while he was still at University, in the true entrepreneurial spirit. The channel at first was called SxePhil, and obviously reflected the highly dignified manner that he was going to conduct himself with. If you can detect a slight tone of sarcasm within my voice it’s because DeFranco wasn’t exactly the same person ten years ago than he is today, and one of his earliest successes was a video by the name of “Big Boobs and You”, which as the title described, included Big Boobs and You, but mostly DeFranco discussing it, the intro is a slightly improper disclaimer warning that if you do not enjoy the objectification of women then you may not enjoy this video. I’ve put it a bit more politely than he did. Honestly, it’s just pure corn, and it’s quite amusing for what it’s worth. One thing that is identifiably consistent with even his recent content is his on camera charisma. Back in the days of yore, you could have low production value and still appeal to an audience, and it is amazing how technology has evolved, the sort of content that DeFranco uploaded would be ridiculed in a modern day scenario, but this was 2007, and classics like Big Boobs and You thrived in that environment. So taking heed of its success DeFranco made this style the centre of appeal within his channel. Not Big Boobs of course, though they weren’t excluded by any means, but he quickly made his videos focused around the discussion of topics that were going to hit that appeal. Basically Philip DeFranco was one of the earliest pioneers in the clickbait niche, but unlike his 2000s contemporaries, he managed to stick it out as his personality matured like a fine cheddar. Whereas, many of those around him became quickly stale. He managed to do this by keeping ahead of the times, as he grew he paid attention to the site changing, and evolving, and in essence he evolved with it. He realised that calling people rug munchers would probably not wash with all of his newer audience, and also understood that you have to branch out to maintain success. One of the things that a majority of larger YouTubers will tell you is that you shouldn’t limit your success to merely YouTube or you quickly become dependent on a platform that can decide whether it wants you to have a good or bad day. DeFranco clearly understood this and has ventured out on many enterprises, including multiple channels, brand deals, business undertakings, all while maintaining a strong YouTube presence. It’s very clear that DeFranco has created a lot of opportunities for himself. But he still has an underlying fondness for the platform that enabled his opportunities, as he has continued to upload content to this day. And in many ways this respect appeared to be reciprocal, YouTube even decided to feature him in their end of 2017 rewind, and, in spite of the very rocky year for YouTube, that decision was praised. Love him or hate him, Philip DeFranco has persisted through many generations of YouTube, and has amassed a consistent fanbase, and that’s fair, his brand of news, although not necessarily exceptional in its presentation, manages to balance the delivery of information with some moderate, if fairly ordinary opinions. I think the main reason that DeFranco has retained an audience is that element of trust, unlike a lot of the news corporations, he’s never presented as having an ulterior agenda. Sure, he has his opinions, and you’re gonna agree with some and disagree with others, but it doesn’t seem like he’s conveying those opinions for any reason other than the fact that he likes to express himself. - CHECK OUT THE EDITORS! - SirCheeseKnight: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6ThPBLQ6dfeRLkDskw62uQ - Mullenax: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrFluffySavage - Peter Day: https://www.youtube.com/user/genericmilk - 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 In Pinned Comment.

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
