Burundi: Iwacu – Communique du Journal Iwacu – Le journaliste Jeremie Misago est introuvable depuis ce samedi (21.11.2022)

Opinion: This Amourath situation needs to be taken seriously…

An E-Girl is still a woman. Yes, she has a platform and been selling an idea and been able to profit on her beauty. That isn’t a strange piece of information in 2022. A lady who has the looks and the finesse can get situated. This is how many has looked at the Twitch streamer Amourath who has an army of “simps” and followers who has made her bank-account pregnant.

Alas, there is more to the story, apparently, which should be taken seriously. The internet meets the real world. The internet personality has a real life situation, which should be investigated. Amourath’s real name is Kaitilyn Michelle Siragusa who is married to Nick Lee in December 2015.

However, that’s been kept secret by Amourath. In financial sense and commercial sense it makes dollars. The men who can dream of wifey-ing up a lady like her. That’s why they subscribe and look forward to her streams. This is a way and a manner of which is far from new. To sell an idea and trade the body to influence lonely men. That’s why men has called sex-phones and paid for service to e-girls like forever. Therefore, the actions of Amourath makes sense or cents this way.

Nevertheless, what makes it different is the exposing of her husband. Not that she has a husband. That is all natural that a women like her has a partner and a life-partner too. The trouble is the extortion and the abuse. The latest stream where she filmed and told her story… was troubling and shows a sinister side of it all.

Seemingly the husband was the man operating everything behind the scenes. The one who had control of the bank-accounts and the livelihood she has created. She has close to 6 million followers on her Twitch account and have over 400 million views. Only in the latest week she has gotten 90,000 more subscribers. That is telling about how big she is and what sort of stature she has. That’s not talking about the profits from OnlyFans. Amourath is a self-serving business and a well known name.

So, if the stories are true… the husband is clearly out of line and using her for wealth. The work and the labour Amourath does is for his pockets. She has to follow orders and do what he wants. Initially, it’s told that he directed her to do the infamous “pool streams” and other things too. This just shows how manipulative the husband is.

That’s why this needs to be addressed and pin evidence too. This cannot just be the talk of the town. There is a need to address it in a manner of which the husband get disconnected from her. Amourath don’t deserve this and no one does. If she was just another E-Girl doing her thing. I wouldn’t bat an eye. That’s their business and how they want to monetize their lives. However, if she is living in an abusive and dangerous relationship. It needs to be remedies to make it stop and his threats has to end. No one deserves to live in that and it’s not healthy. That’s why I am writing it…

Am not a fan of Amourath and used her as an epitome of E-Girls on Twitch. That’s for a reason, she’s like the biggest and well-known at this point. At that time, we didn’t know what was happening behind the closed doors.

We have seen virtue signalling and things toying around. We have seen people calling “rape” and it was only stories to hurt a career of a man. However, here we need to our mind rights and see for what it is. Amourath had nothing to earn or gain by doing this directly on stream. The “simps” could revoke her status and feel betrayed, by suddenly knowing she is married in secret. That’s why you know there is more to this and she deserves courage, support and help.

She needs shelter and guidance from wise counsel. Not from random people online. Amourath needs to seek help from the outside. If she can get away from the man. Especially, if his acting the way she portrayed yesterday on the stream. That’s when she needs to go to those places where woman runs away from dangerous spouses. The body and the mental state needs healing. That’s what she needs and she needs remedies to get control of her life again. This is if everything she said was true. I cannot assess that, but there are more to this… and we shouldn’t take this one easy.

This is not the time to let it slide. It is the time for Law Enforcement to investigate and look into it. Secondly, she needs to leave and get help. That’s all we can say. I cannot take it lightly on it. I wish it was light-hearted, because of the topic and the platform, which is discussed, now and then. Not like Twitch and E-Girls are separated any-more. However, that isn’t what is the issue today.

No, it is an abusive relationship between spouses. Usually, these details and stories happens behind closed doors. They are not in the open, but this was told for the whole world to see. Now we just have to wait and see what happens next. Peace.

Opinion: Kanye becomes a Right-Wing Social Media site owner [since his now buying Parler!]

And I’ll never let my son have an ego

He’ll be nice to everyone wherever we go

I mean, I might even make him be Republican

So everybody know he love white people” – Kanye West on “New Day” of ‘Watch The Throne’ (2011).

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 17, 2022 – Parlement Technologies announced today that it has entered into an agreement in principle to sell Parler, the world’s pioneering uncancelable free speech platform, to Ye (formerly known as Kanye West). Ye has become the richest Black man in history through music and apparel and is taking a bold stance against his recent censorship from Big Tech, using his far-reaching talents to further lead the fight to create a truly non-cancelable environment. “In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” says Ye” (PR Newswire – ‘Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, to acquire Parler platform’ 17.10.2022).

Kanye Omari West aka Kanye aka Yeezy aka Ye is now officially becoming the owner of Parler or Parlement Technologies. Which is really interesting, as it is founded by Rebekah Mercer. If your not familiar with her?

She has supported Donald J. Trump’s Presidential Campaign in 2016. Also, been a patron of Steve Bannon and Ted Cruz. In addition to the Mercer’s has funded Breitbart. Therefore, Parler is a right-wing social media house and not just a run-of-the-mill corporation. Not to forget, she also partly funded the Cambridge Analytica. This is why you should know what sort of character she is and that’s why it’s important for what Kanye West or Ye is buying.

Ye is buying a sort of 4Chan or Gab. This is just another one of them. Not to forget to mention Truth Social or Gettr for that matter. The Right-Wing media is so scattered and spread out. Now Ye is getting direct ownership of it.

Currently the Parler website isn’t the biggest, in the last three months there been 1.3 million visits and the duration on the page is about 3 minutes. Which is very little if we were to compare with Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for that matter. That we know is the main competition and where it wants to aim at.

Parler isn’t a big company either. It has like 6 employees and 9 connections to it. It was only in September 2022 that the company rebranded itself to be “uncancelable” whatever that means, because we know a leftist on the site would be booted out quickly.

Protect Young Eyes says this about Parler:“Is Parler safe for kids? No it isn’t. The 17+ rating in Apple’s App Store is the right spot. This is a social platform made by adults and 100% for adults. Why? Because the Community decides what stays and goes. I understand that Parler wants to be a refuge for those who are tired of political censorship, but they are trusting human nature to figure out what’s best for humans. Time will tell if this works! In the history of the Internet, this just doesn’t tend to go well (related post: Deep Web, Dark Web Explained)” (Protect Young Eyes – ‘Parler App Reveiw’).

We can expect it to be in this lane. Kanye West or Ye has drifted in this way for so long. The latest controversies are showing it too. His association not only with Trump and Candance Owens. That’s just who he is and buying Parler is just a reflection of that. This is who he has become and it’s evident now.

Now we know that he takes over Mercer’s former social media house. It is really happening after the company has fundraised over $36 million dollars. Therefore, he should expect not only to acquire this, but he has to fund the operation too. Especially, if his a serious owner. This isn’t a quick or simple purchase…

A digital company needs liquidity and continued funds for it’s operations. Especially, if the company is lacking revenue streams or such. With the viability and the amount of users. I have a hard time seeing Parler becoming profitable. Unless, Ye can unleash new crowds on the site. This is something time will tell, but don’t get it confused.

This is and will be a parental advisory page for the right-wing. Ye will not change this. His inheriting Mercer’s page and now his stepping into a new avenue. Peace.

Opinion: Alex Jones is hit where it hurts…

Alex Jones & Infowars’ parent company must pay 14 family members of 8 Sandy Hook Elementary School victims, plus an FBI agent who responded to the scene of the 2012 massacre, which killed 20 first graders and 6 educators, a collective total of $965 MILLION” (Ali Velshi, 12.10.2022).

The Infowars and conspiracy news peddle Alex Jones has finally been fined in the Courts. After years of litigation and lack of accountability for his actions. In the Sandy Hook defamation case, Alex Jones is now owning $965 million or close to a billion dollars. That’s a huge debt to pay and he got to cough up money from now on.

He better hope his followers and that the Republican Party helps him out. His been a part of the rise of Trump and Trumpism. They have been connected and his one of them. Even accepted the gay-frogs and all other crazy stories that Jones has peddled over the years.

The conspiracies around Sandy Hook school-massacre has now backfired. Certainly, there is plenty of other stories and such, which could been seen in similar light. It isn’t like Sandy Hook is one off. No, it is just one of the most notorious ones of his. This is staple and part of his business model.

InfoWars now has to find either a 1 billion dollars or they have to get supporters to fund this. If not his going bankrupt and his media house is over. Alex Jones have created this all by himself and cannot blame others.

Today’s court verdict is important, because Jones got nowhere to hide now. Jones got to be responsible and be able to pay them. This judgement will follow him for the rest of his life. He will not able to run away from it.

We can expect that Jones will beg his audience for funds and buy his vitamins or special packages for dooms-day from the InfoWars merchandize store. Alex Jones now has to answer the families and the victims of Sandy Hook.

Alex Jones cannot just run away from the tab. InfoWars are surely in trouble and all his conspiracies can now be tested in the Courts. I am sure the lizard people will not respond, but others might. Especially, all of the people who has been scorned and mocked by him over the years.

This got to hurt and sting… he needs a new hustle and quickly. Especially, since he has to pay this vast verdict to the families. It got to be detrimental to his business and his livelihood. Peace.

Philippines: The Nucleus – Official Statement on Recent Killings of Journalists (12.10.2022)

Opinion: The Def Noodles controversies is getting out of hand…

You know you’re a hot mess when the only person buying you drinks all night is yourself” Chelsea Handler

After following Def Noodles aka Dennis Feitosa since the COVID lockdowns and all of the internet “news” and “drama” videos. He himself is becoming the centre of gravity and all for the wrong reasons. The man should leave the internet and be off social media for a while. Because, that way he can salvage his business and his own channels.

Right now, the main channel is bleeding subscribers and losing viewers too. His podcast has abysmal numbers as well. The Def Noodles brand and such is already wasted. The talk of self-destruction and killing own career is evident.

What is even more striking because of the second roast. The people are starting to look into the history of the lore and reasons for Def Noodles to become like this. They are starting to analyse his channel and his content choices. What is more striking now… isn’t that Kavos made him nearly quit YouTube at one point.

No, what is more striking is that his wife and YouTuber has been copied by the former husband/partner. Def Noodles has copied the content, the cat-ears and whatnot. Just like everything was Filipino at one point, the former wife/partner had everything Korean. Their channels went in tandem and did about similar things. He couldn’t even be original about it. Def or Dennis copied Lauren down to the thumbnails. That’s really biting her craft and becoming big doing so.

We know that Def Noodles has no plans of reviving the “irrelevant news” and the TMZ sort of internet news era. He has stated that himself, however, the foolishness of doing so.. is that the reason people subscribed and followed him was because of that. They didn’t come his way for jokes, pickle-ice-cream or “pallet cleansers”. No, they came for the ridiculous happening of the online sphere.

Now his turning not only into a failed actor and director. He is turning into a failure of a comedian and internet personality. Def Noodles owns a comedy club that no one respects. Certainly, because of his actions of late. He will get into trouble and more litigation possibly. Both for taking art-work from creators and possibly getting sued for doing so. One creator who was used for the first ticket-sales to the first roast is planning to do so. Secondly, he could face a lawsuit from Salvo Pancakes and the altercation or the assault on stage, which was caught on camera. Third, there is talk of people alerting the authorities of the possible breaches of serving liquor without liquor licenses at the venue. Last, he might have to answer for fire-safety and the seating arrangement in the comedy club. Since if you look on the tapes. It doesn’t seem to be designated way to the fire-escape and clear walk-way, if the unfortunate things was about to transpire. This is all speculations, but isn’t making things better.

Def Noodles already has a legal challenge and a lawsuit against Keemstar. The mortal enemy and the one who he has spoken ill of for months. Many thought he went the commentary route to emulate and a look like of internet enemies. Now it seems even more creepier, as he possibly copied his former wife/partner. I don’t know about you… but that is suspect things. When you can look into her channel and see how much he has copied over the years. It is really something else.

You also know it’s all bad when Social Blade estimations of loss of subscribers over a year could reach about 300k and a channel with about 550k. That’s over half of the ones who subscribed to you. This isn’t a good look, but showing what sort of downward spiral the man is in. It doesn’t help him that he has only yes-men and people boosting his ego around him. That’s why his not listening to criticism or anyone questioning his actions.

He is acting like a tough guy, but never acting responsible for it. Only gaslighting and acting as a professional victim. That can only work for a while, but the cover is already up. The means to an end only get you so far. Being on the trending tab on Twitter isn’t feeding you. What is feeding you is either views on YouTube, the amount of Patreon members and people buying merchandize. However, how much money can be in that now?

Def Noodles has to pay for staff and keep his business afloat. He has to ensure revenue from the Comedy Club and also all the other things he got going on. Those liabilities are now on him. We cannot know if the pressure and the internet has gotten the best out of him. Since, his trying to carve his own lane, but not managing to do so.

Dennis certainly want to achieve things, but his alienating his own audience and the ones who followed him. His only wants “ride or die” fans and the rest can just scatter. There is enough other sources or places to find what he was doing in the past. He was a glorified “tea channel” and now he wants to be something else. However, that isn’t working for him.

Last night performance just shows what he does to get controversy. He cannot handle the pressure or the double role of being an owner and the main-act. That’s just to much for him. He wants to be the big-shot, but instead becomes the butt of the joke. People are not laughing at his joke but at him. That’s because of the epic failures and the mismanagement from him. It doesn’t help with the aggression and the means that he used against Salvo. This just shows the character of Def Noodles…

He cannot morally be objective in his pieces anymore. For someone who is so vile and aggressive. Def Noodles is surely out of his mind. That is obvious to everyone who watches. It is not strange if people critic him and questions him now. This isn’t about spreading defamation or false information in his previous videos. Neither is the lack of credibility the man has. No, now its about the manner and the ways his operating. Which isn’t controversial but straight out foolish. The man is trying to act all cool and edgy, but comes out as cringe. He isn’t built for this… and Salvo caught him red-handed.

It isn’t “are you from Detroit?” Or “Do you want to make out?” but a real roast battle going all wrong. This just shows what sort of man he is. Def Noodles certainly cannot handle it and the coping mechanisms isn’t helping him either.

Time will tell how this is backfiring. This weekend has been brutal to Def Noodles and it isn’t getting any better. There is no hope on the horizon. Unless, he has a sudden change of heart and tries out another character or stick to sell on his YouTube Channel. Because, the comments on his videos is indicating the losses. Def Noodles is destroying his platform and his own name. One day at a time and it’s a crazy journey to follow. Peace.

Opinion: Def Noodles, the wasted YouTube Commentary Channel… Part IV

The last month has been brutal for Dennis Feitosa aka Def Noodles. The educator of Comedy and gatekeeper of the art. He had yesterday his first “Roast Battle” in his newly made Comedy Club. It is clear that the YouTuber has invested and tried to expand his business. That is all fine and dandy. Anyone who can should do so.

We know that Def Noodles has tried to become an Edge-Lord, but that’s not working. His constantly backing into questionable territory. Him getting Twitter back is clearly not healthy. That’s the place where his loosing it and not able to keep his head cool. Def gets triggered and writes the most outrageous stuff. Like telling a man to get educated on the barrel of shotgun. That’s the sort of man he has become and that’s why the “Dennis the Menace” is being spread around.

For being someone who has tried to cater to the “woke” and “left-wing” commentary crowds. That’s a big shift and his losing subscribers. Yes, his trying to shift over to Paetron and get paying subscribers to keep the gig up. As his rates of viewers are going down. The average on his videos on his main-channel is bleeding. That’s because people are tired of his stick, hypocrisy and seeing how two-faced he is.

Secondly, this man cannot take criticism. In such a way, that he had to build a Comedy Studio fitting with about 20 chairs or so. Where he can host roast battles and whatnot. That is a feat in itself. I’m sure while he was trending during the pandemic. The money was flowing in and the ability to get notoriety was giving him hope for the future.

However, now in August 2022 the story is different. His not only been called out by many for being dishonest in his reporting of stories. He has shown his character and that he lacks the objective sense of feedback. If you give him negative feedback, your either a troll, hater or para-social. In addition, if you give positive feedback or writes like he talks – “your a ride or die fan” who understands him. That’s how he operates now and shows how he treats his following.

Certainly, there are people who are missing the Minecraft and Cat-Ear Era now of Def Noodles. Because, this Howard Stern knock-off isn’t it. Trying to be edge and hard isn’t him. He might try to be, but it falls flat. That’s why last night show or roast was a sad event to see. Just imagine the time and the workers building the venue, the famous wall and see amateur hour for about an hour. Well, we should have expected that much or that little.

Def Noodles LLC was incorporated in March 2021. Surely nice to become a LLC. He has hired a Videographer editor and has an intern. Maybe he has more people on his payroll. As the podcast has fellow hosts as well. Therefore, a lot of expenditure is going out before the profits. That’s just the gist of it. He has a sort of team now, but they are not helping his content sadly enough. His also selling merch as Def Noodles SUX. So, his trying to get as many revenue streams as possible now.

That being YouTube main channel, Podcast, Patreon and Twitch (suspended yesterday for 7 days). He says his been de-platformed, but it was breach of TOS. Not a shocker there, but that’s how the story goes.

We are seeing a man willing to do whatever, this arch isn’t his best, but maybe the pressure to keep the business afloat while trying keep it alive is to much for him. I’m sure that he miss being a actor and partake in movies nearly no one watched like “Donna” and “Eddie”. If not he sure wished he was able to sell the sitcom dream of “Appland” instead of ending up with cringe-fest of roast yesterday. Because, this wasn’t it. No matter how you play this one out. There is little meat on the bone here. You couldn’t even muster up a proper joke and only wanted to give Miranda the mantle and check. Def Noodles didn’t even try, no punchlines, no comeback and no comedic timing. Just like plenty of us has told was lacking in the YouTube Commentary videos. However, he has never listened.

Surely, something got to give. To have comedian in a bio doesn’t make a man funny. That’s what jokes does and they are far between. Def Noodles is currently lost and his bravado isn’t helping him. It most cost and that’s why his branching out. He got a business to run and people to pay. So, he needs cash. Controversy is supposed to sell, but at the moment it’s only bleeding. Also, it is backfiring when his not getting a turn-up or a response worthy of the craft itself.

Just like the taglines on Appland is “Starting Up is Hard” – we are seeing that doing Stand-up is even harder. Peace.

Kenya: Media Council of Kenya – Media Transmission of Presidential Election Results (10.08.2022)

Philippines: House of Representatives – House Bill No. 2971 (August 02, 2022)

Keemstar’s Motion to Dismiss the Def Noodles Lawsuit is “exposing” him…

The subject Tweet makes no accusation of acts of a sexual nature. There is no accusation of specific criminal conduct. The context is that the subject Tweet is a “mock” of prior fake stories and in response (in kind) to posts made over the three preceding days by the Def Noodles character, in which it repeatedly used “allegedly” to frame the comments about Keem” (Motion, 05.08.2022).

That Dennis Feitosa aka Def Noodles and Daniel M. Keem aka Keemstar has gone through a lot online isn’t anything new at this point. It was on the 19th May 2022 that Def Noodles filed his motion to sue and go after Keemstar for damages over a tweet from 2021. Now after all the recent controversy. The motion from the attorney of Keemstar is out and it has aspects, which digs much deeper than what Def Noodles had in first piece of litigation. Certainly, this is showing things that Def Noodles don’t want to undress in the Courts, but because of the Court case he has to address.

The motion itself shows how they both as YouTubers and Social Media influencers has operated on Twitter. It is really shattering seeing how the document shows the hypocrisy of Def Noodles in comparison to the Tweet that is the reason for this lawsuit. Because, he shows that plenty of Tweets from Def Noodles are much more direct and worse with the content. That is the obvious case here.

One of the best part of the Motion was this one:

Here, the alleged defamatory statement, on its face and as pleaded in the complaint, is not “of and concerning” plaintiff Dennis Feitosa, as a matter of fact or law. Indeed, the subject Tweet does not mention him at all. Rather, the subject Tweet is of and concerning a fictitious internet cat character, “Def Noodles,” which exists solely as a comedic instrument for generating jokes and satirical commentary. (Smith Decl., Exs. 1 and 2, and 12-15). “Def Noodles” is not synonymous with Feitosa, as Feitosa has repeatedly admitted, disclaimed, and emphasized. Def Noodles is a separate, outlandish, comedic character developed to satirically criticize, mock, and otherwise attack other social media personalities –and to be mocked and attacked in response. In his own description of this created character, Plaintiff has written that Def Noodles is “a satirical take in Internet news commentary hosted by a cat in a Minecraft house.” (Motion, 05.08.2022).

This here is so detrimental to the case, as it goes to the aspect of the character versus the person. That’s really poignant point, which is far beyond the reasoning in the original lawsuit from Def Noodles.

The best counter argument towards Def Noodles and damages is using his own Twitter history against Keemstar: “The statement parrots the cautionary language “allegedly” – which is a known signature disclaimer of Def Noodles and how the Def Noodles character couched each of its demeaning tweets about Keem in the three consecutive days (May 18th, May 19th, and May 20th) immediately preceding the May 21st responsive subject Tweet.4 The subject Tweet also mimics the “reached out for comment” line that the Def Noodles character has admitted to using falsely in the past. (Smith Decl., Ex. 2). The reference to “Big YouTuber Source” further highlights that Keem is poking fun, in kind, at the Def Noodles character and consistent with the joking/mocking environment in which they are operating – not stating serious facts” (Motion, 05.08.2022).

Here the arguments are showing that the comedian are struggling to comprehend and understand the satirical aspects of it. What is striking in the counter motion is showing how Def Noodles went after Keemstar on Twitter. That is clearly how he operates and does his work. We have seen that with other content creators how Def Noodles has gone after Papa Gut lately. Keemstar’s lawyers has really done him a service and showing how Def Noodles has acting in the same sphere.

The motion is clearly outlining why this isn’t libel or defamation, but instead play online between two content creators. Again, showing that Def Noodles cannot comprehend jokes made by others.

One vital part of which the attorney of Def Noodles failed to do or produce facts was the damages done by the Tweet in question. Which is sort of foolish in consideration of everything he has produced against others and proved in the court document by Keemstar’s attorney’s.

The part of defamation and the burden of loss or consequences to the Tweet. The reason why Keemstar should pay any damages to the one suing. That seems to beyond reach and explained in fine print: “Indeed, Feitosa does not allege any loss of income or other economic harm, nor does he allege a loss of YouTube subscribers or social media followers. Accordingly, this Court can dismiss the Complaint under Rule 12(b)(1) for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. See id. (“[I]in the event the complaint does not allege, on its face, facts plausibly suggesting that the amount in controversy exceeds the jurisdictional minimum, the court need not presume that the general allegation that the amount in controversy exceeds the jurisdictional minimum constitutes a good faith representation of the actual amount in controversy.”)” (Motion, 05.08.2022).

This I discussed in the piece “The Def Noodles Lawsuit is here… and the “comedian” cannot take a joke…”. As Libel and Defamation cases needs proof of loss of revenue or credibility. In such a way that the other party can sue or ask for damages. This just shows how Def Noodles or Dennis failed in this instance. Because, he has no proof of that or any evidence to prove it. If he had… he should have proven it. This is the most powerful statement in the whole legal drama.

The defence of Keemstar is really solid and shows both characters, their work and how they both as acted online. It wasn’t a one-time thing and certainly Def Noodles needs to come with proper evidence to let this one fly. Because, he has a mountain climb and prove that he should “win” and get the damages. Especially, when he tweeted similar things ahead of the Tweet that caused the lawsuit. Just proving how he wants one law for him and another for others. Which isn’t striking and the best part of all.

The defence of Keemstar is using the Def Noodles “comedian” and “satirical” character against him. In such a way… that he now has to either switch up or say it all is “serious”. Which will counter the “lore” of Def Noodles.

Time will tell, but this case isn’t over yet, but as Motion goes. This was a good one. Peace.
