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

Def Noodles, if you don’t know about his videos or his content. I hate to break it too you, but your not missing out on anything. The guy behind it all is a man named Dennis Feitosa. A man who is supposed to give you Satirical News on his YouTube Channel. However, that falls flat and isn’t what it seems.

That how I started my first piece in April 2021 and ironically enough it hasn’t changed a single bit. However, since my piece on him February 2022. He has offered to other content creators to file a joint class-action suit against Keemstar, but he later ended up with a Defamation Suit filed on the 19th May 2022 against Keemstar. That was filed as an action because of a tweet where Keemstar was alleged that Def Noodles was “grooming kids”.

The Tweet itself said: “Def Noodles has allegedly groomed girls from ages 12-15.

Big Youtuber Source: “Victims are scared of him & wish to stay anonymous but may come forward soon” #DramaAlert” (Keemstar, 21.05.2022) and he followed up with “Def Noodles has declined to give us a comment on these allegations made against him” (Keemstar 21.05.2021).

This week however Def Noodles himself has acted in the same way regarding another content creator. Directly going after Papa Gut. A fellow YouTuber he has earlier in the year had a debate and crossed the lines with. This week he has not only dropped “fat-jokes” and “body-shamed” him. He has directly called him a pedophile and tagged the FBI to put him on a watchlist.

So, the man who filed a lawsuit over defamation of character over a joke that contains the same language and allegations. That is really striking and show that the man isn’t that smart. The wisest thing he could would to log off the internet and maybe take a break. In addition he has made an apology video, which was a cringe-fest and felt like a mockery. It was one of those insincere moments and like he see things backfiring.

Surely the bleeding of subscribers and the dwindling numbers on the videos must hurt his pride. As he is using more time on a podcast, as well as the main-channel. The edgy and cringe-lord content hasn’t earned him anything either. The revelation that it wasn’t Keemstar fault for the loss of Twitter. Isn’t helping him either, as he made his own bed, but not taking any accountability for that.

His just mocking everyone else and playing the game of satire. While everyone knows the gig by now and he has lost the vibe. The man should know better… Def Noodles has had the time and the ability if he cared, but we know that he doesn’t. H3H3 should wonder how long they can carry this man, as his sinking fast now.

The meltdown and actions on Twitter isn’t helping. He is digging his own grave, instead of reflecting on his own actions. Ironically his becoming the person that is his arch-enemy. Even using similar rhetoric and messaging on Twitter. That is compelling. While dropping a no nothing apology on his main channel.

The gig of Def Noodles should soon be over. The man should look into the mirror and ask why his doing things. It looks like his only making things and not better. His image is already shaky and people don’t trust him to analyse Influencer, Celebrity and Internet Drama correctly. That’s saying something. Because, he should be able to pull off being some sort of edge-lord with a dash of TMZ. However, that’s asking to much….

Well… the man left the Minecraft house, but the grasser wasn’t greener on the other side. It seems like the Achilles heel is his end-game too. The self-made making of an enemy in Keemstar is playing with him and he ends up copying him. In such a fashion, that everyone is disgusted and seeing his dishonest ways.

Def Noodles at one point seemed to have found his niche and could run with it. Now, his going down and losing it… his even launching a Patreon page now to salvage funds from his hard-core fans. That wasn’t done early on or when things was good. No, it’s happening now and with the hope that they can carry him. He even used the Community Post on Youtube to launch that. It is just so telling and where his own community are disgusted by him. They are telling they are unsubscribing from him.

This is really compelling how his falling and trying to get it all back. However, when the cat is out of the bag. When you have opened up the can of worms. You cannot take it back and there is no backsies. Even if the content creator wants it to be so. Yes, in a little while the whole controversy will die down, but some people will always remember. That’s the problem he will always have.

What is also amazing. On his new Twitter I’m blocked and I don’t care. There is enough people making screenshot showing his latest tweets. Not that I am losing out on anything either. The hypocrisy is unbelievable and he should reconsider. Nevertheless, that isn’t the sort of man Def Noodles is. He rather try to expose or undermine someone with a lesser platform. Just like he went after Papa Gut now and how he tried to play Grady Hooper. Time will tell what he does next, but the gig is up.

The gig stays the gig, but is the gig worth it Mr. Noodles? Peace.

Opinion: Nsereko MP needs a retirement plan

The Kampala Central MP Muhammed Nsereko lost the plot on NTV On the Spot last night. He was smoked and burned by the arguments made by lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde who was right on the money. Ssemakadde proven that wits and wisdom isn’t in titles or the office of the beholden, but of the character of a person. That’s why Nsereko couldn’t acknowledge it, because the lawyer didn’t give any moment to breathe.

I don’t feel sorry for the MP as he plans to put string on the freedom of speech, the liberty of expression and silence dissidents online. The state who already has the Computer Misuse Act with offensive communication and have the Penal Code of Article 24, which has made it forbidden to annoy, ridicule or alarm the President. Therefore, the state already has lots of stipulations, laws and regulation on media to block the unintended reports, articles, communications or messages online.

That’s why it was so vital for the lawyer to burn the bridges of Nsereko who is trying to forge his position and place within the NRM. The former rebel and “independent” MP who is as close to the NRM as you can be without being it. He is just another asset of the ruling regime and that’s why he wanted to discover and work on new legislation to silence critics.

This is the same man that has vast wealth and was at one point mentioned as the wealthiest MP in the Republic. That was said about him before the 2016 General Election in the run-up time in 2015. The MP has been in office since 2011 and been able to be reputable. While also swinging on the edges to be useful for the NRM. Therefore, his one of a few in the Buganda region that is NRM leaning in the 11th Parliament. As the People Power wave too most of the constituencies there.

However, with that in mind, the populist and the calculated fellow has outmanoeuvred himself this time. His maybe trying his Magyezi private motion and private bill sort of trick. To do the emperor a favour and shut down critics totally online.

So, you would think a third term legislator and representative would have upped his game and made valid reasons for a change or make new legislation. However, his school-yard reasoning wasn’t flying high yesterday. No, it was falling flat and he could never recover from the fall-off.

Nsereko, if his wealth of the past still exists… he will always have huge investments in Zambia to live off from in the future. Secondly, he surely has invested the millions of shillings his been earning as an MP for all these years. Not like he has to worry about the NSSF payouts with grown age. He should be covered for life with the suits, envelopes, cars and salary, which he has earned over a decade in Parliament.

This man don’t have to worry…. We all know that and Nsereko should work on his stances and arguments. You cannot outsmart someone with a suit and tie. Nsereko needs to come correct and not only a mere full of empty statements, which is pointless. That’s only working on the naive or the belligerent people in the crowds. Clearly, he has taken water over his head and cannot cannot carry the weight.

Nsereko better revise his plans and maybe adjust himself to his own expectations. As the populist and wealthy MP can only get you so far. That was proven yesterday and he now has to find a way to land softly.

If not… just linger on as a silent partner of the regime in the Parliament and hoping people forgetting until next election. Since that’s years to come and many more scandals happen before that time around. Peace.

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

Def Noodles, if you don’t know about his videos or his content. I hate to break it too you, but your not missing out on anything. The guy behind it all is a man named Dennis Feitosa. A man who is supposed to give you Satirical News on his YouTube Channel. However, that falls flat and isn’t what it seems.

That’s how I started a piece about him in April 2021 and nothing has really changed. Well, the content creator and supposed “comedian” has left his mine-craft house and cat-earphones behind. However, his more cringe and trying appear edgy in his appearance.

Def Noodles must be “deaf” or not really listen to any criticism of his channel. Yes, he still believes his can shield all actions and all outbursts with “comedy”. Because using slurs and ridicule of other influencers, Youtubers or celebrities can only take you that far.

Calling people stupid, dumb-fuck and incel isn’t a wise move. Especially when you yourself don’t have the ability to defend your actions or reasoning for why that is a joke. It’s just like when he called several of other Youtubers “Alt-Right” without any proof of the allegation and not thinking of the severity of it.

While he has been going on a rampage over the deplatforming from Twitter claiming that’s Drama Alert’s Keemstar’s fault. Because, it couldn’t be violation of TOS or anything like that. Spreading misinformation or fake-news. No, we all know that Def Noodles doesn’t do that (that’s satire). That’s what he did with his account on Twitter and it backfired. So, instead of being accountable for his own actions it’s easier to pin that on his enemy Keemstar.

We know Keemstar is his enemy because he so many videos about him at this point. His Leafy levels of covering Keemstar. The obessions is HelloLeesh levels and you cannot stop talking about him. That is really evident and the class action lawsuit. You have to prove the lost revenue and lost reputation. That will be hard bargain… when you have to look into your own content and how you speak of others. It would be really interesting to see that play out in the courts and see how things will be broken down by litigation and a discovery into the case.

Clearly, Def Noodles shows his lack of control and story-lines, as Papa Gut  Augie RFC debates has undermined his character and standing in general. These has both showed who he really is and what sort of dishonest content creator he is. There is no redeeming qualities in this. I cannot see a redemption arch coming his way.

Unless, he goes a total 180 and actually starts to research stories properly and learns comedic timing. I know that’s a lot to ask for but maybe like Lizzo’s career. Def Noodles losing steam too. He needs to leech of something and he got very little to grasp. H3H3 can only help him so far, but the rest he got to carry on his own.

Def Noodles isn’t the sort of man to get a vocabulary or take things seriously. That’s why NFT Slaves was “irrelevant news” and it just shows how little he cares about these things. It is just because he has to fill air-time and be in the now.

Remember “Kavos” destroyed this man at one point. You can wonder if Keemstar will be his Achilles heel. The moment he cannot use his name or vilify him. Def Noodles is short-sighted and not that clever. That is very obvious. He needs guidance, but that seems to late.

Well… his the butt of the joke and it’s not our fault that he fell on his ass. He could have seen that banana peel, but he was so involved in drama. That he could even watch his steps. That’s the man he is and it’s evident for anyone watching. Peace.

Opinion: Nobody should challenge the Queen of Twitch…

Imane “Pokimane” Anys is the one of the creators and streamers on the online streaming platform Twitch, which you should never challenge, question or even comment with a byline or a bulletin for that matter. Pokimane can get people permanently banned or use her gender-role as a victim. While she’s eating lunch while watching TV-Shows on stream.

Pokimane can go after sponsor and sponsorships, but she expects to get her bang for her bucks. She can sign deals and agreements through her management companies. That how things goes. Pokimane can turn against anyone, but she nobody can question her without getting into real trouble.

That’s why she’s the QUEEN of TWITCH. The almighty and powerful person on Twitch. Pokimane will go after Youtubers or Twitch people who makes clips or questions her a little bit. It doesn’t matter who it is, but you should never do that. If you do that… expect to be deemed as misogynist.

While she is a E-Girl who has an army of simps. She might not accept that, as she is getting tier-subs and getting donations from men who is freely giving her money. That is their free-will and if they want too. They can donate or pay her for her services, as a streamer and living on recruit difficulty. Pokimane knows this well and it’s not like she doesn’t enjoy perks of her work and lifestyle. People would have given up a lot of opportunities to get her wealth and influence, which she has…

Pokimane might feel violated, but she has turned online platforms against others. She has gone after sponsors. While she can violate the TOS and not get any real ramification. If things has gone bad… she has gone on vacation or been silent for a minute. Before the she returned like nothing happened.

Her army simps will be behind her no matter what. She is allowed to go after people and their livelihoods. Pokimane can do that, but other creators cannot question her. Not even drop “Ratio-L” or such. It doesn’t matter… because the Queen says so.

The throne is clear and it’s evident. She is an online personality who cannot be questioned or have any call-back. Her folks and team can pull strings… and clearly that is evident. People can enjoy Pokimane’s “transformative” content and ways, but people should be able to say their peace without losing their platform.

If it’s Gundam, Leafy or JiDion for that matter… and we know she goes after Ninja too. If not also going after Bowblax as well. There is no end, as she is vicious and targets people who questions her. Pokimane has also gone on a rampage with copyright strikes against YouTube creators in the past. While she can watch full TV-Content and YouTube videos to kill time on stream between video-games. Therefore, she is not the righteous person to do so…

She just strike against them, because they made content about her, which she didn’t deem fit or didn’t like. Since it just happened to be critical about her. If it was Keemstar or PewDiePie who made video’s about her. That’s why she went after them as well.

Pokimane can act differently and calmly, but it is all calculated. That’s why the ones who aims at her will be hurt. She will use her gender and stigma for her benefit. Pokimane is the Queen and people just have to live with it.

She sits on the throne and can get away with everything. While the detractors will be get punished. Peace.

Opinion: Zuckerberg is going meta

Today Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook Corporation have announced the name-change of the company, which was first known as the “TheFacebook”. Now it has become a tech giant and a vital tool for spreading information and marketing. The social media site is a toxic haven, but also a monopoly of sorts.

Facebook has millions of members and people are showing their lives there. The company owns Instagram and WhatsApp too. So, there are several of entities under his umbrella now. Zuckerberg does this now, because his company is getting tarnished. He needs positivity. So, why not go “meta”?

His company is neither artistic or part of the cultural conversation. Facebook is maybe lacking self-awareness or feeling the room. The founder and owner of the company thinks he can change the narrative by a name-change. However, the problems of Facebook is bigger than that.

He has to address the usage of the social media site. How the page and the platform is being used by certain groups, interests and being controlled for political gains ahead of elections. That the site and its platform is used to spread messages and possible propaganda should be worrying. Alas, he earns fortunes on it and it’s a good business. That’s why he rather “go meta” than take responsibility.

It is not like Zuckerberg is observing things from the outside. No, his just trying to deflect and hope nobody notice it. That this publicity stunt and trying to forget the issues. That Facebook has been used to create social unrest, as well as spread hate and extremism. This is why it suddenly changes name to take away the bad stench.

However, Facebook cannot forget it’s role. That is why companies like Cambridge Analytica and others has used the platform for political gains. Used the platform to spread the campaign misinformation and change elections in their favour. In such a manner of which the tech giant is a useful tool for the hired political operatives.

Just going “meta” isn’t enough. No sorts of metaphysics can save Mark now. He can go all philosophical, but that doesn’t change the fact either. It is a reason why whistleblowers are blowing up the lid and telling their stories. Since, the founder would preferred them to be silent. The backdrops of this is very shady.

He can act like this is no big deal and only a name-change, but it is more to it. As the company wants to be more than just Facebook. They want to be “meta” whatever that means and for whatever purpose that serves. However, right now they have to answer for the usage of the platform and how it has catered to certain parts of the political spectrum. The company and Facebook has to address this as it is concern. That it can be used in this manner and therefore, be a dangerous tool, as well.

No matter how “meta” Zuckerberg goes. This will not change that. The dirt is still on his hands and the cleaning doesn’t start with changing the emblem. The change starts with how the company really operates and runs it’s business. If it cares about the consequences or users. Since this is a definite issue, which will not go away. Peace.

Opinion: Chappelle was just being real

The ones who has issues with Comedian Dave Chappelle after his Netflix special ‘the Closer’ that premiered on the 5th October 2021. It has caused an outcry and sparked controversy. While watching it… I only saw the same real comedian that I gotten know over all the years. The stories, the tales and the reality he describes seems “legit”. So, why this issue now?

Yes, there is always a need to address minorities and their rights. There is a need to viable and be direct about it. Discussions and talks, where people have to in the end, agree to disagree and still be cordial. However, with the comedy special have gotten twisted into something else.

Yes, Chappelle is direct and doesn’t spare any of his words. He knows his craft and has a capacity to blow someone’s mind. The jokes he had was poignant and blasphemous in the woke crowds of the internet. Nevertheless, these folks cannot take a joke or live in our reality. As they want everything to be “correct” and not without consequences. That’s why it’s easy to target the stand-up comedian for telling his story.

Not like Chappelle would change legislation or give more power to you. No, he is just addressing the double standards, the way the LGBTQ have vast power, but no checks or balances on it. Yes, they still have grievances, but who doesn’t right? They are not alone in society and they have come really far. That’s why any sort of Marvel and DC hero is becoming LGBTQ while there is nobody writing stories, which challenges your mind or entertains you for long. Therefore, the group should think about the focus and losing strike to assault Chappelle.

Chappelle even stated that he was tarnished by the group wrongly and been labelled by them. While he never had any real grudges. Heck, he even helped a Trans-Woman to become a better comedian. If he had issues with their “tribe” wouldn’t he had shunned her? Not talked and respected her? Well, he did… so the ones going after him. Don’t like that someone with a huge platform addresses the matter.

The same proof of hypocrisy is stated in the joke on the situation earlier this year of the rapper DaBaby. Who spoke his mind and tried to damage control it afterwards. He was homophobic and speaking ill of it. Alas, that was more damaging to his career, as Dua Lipa and others distances themselves from him. While nobody had any issues with him… because he killed someone at Wall Mart before his career popped-off. Therefore, you can quickly question the morality and the value of their believes.

This is why Chappelle’s Comedy Special is important. Because, it proves the reality. You might not agree with it or accept it. However, if you want things to move forward and understand the questions of our time. There is a need for pieces like these. You cannot have a Political Correct skit or jokes. Nobody will laugh at that and it will be a direct-to-DVD failure of a project. Nobody will watch it or care about it. It is dead on arrival and there was nothing to salvage. Only the pay-checks paid by the producers and the companies involved. The general public will not feel it or even bother.

That’s why Chappelle and such needs to speak their mind. They open an conversation. He proves it and explains the matters with fine detail. He takes responsibility, but also humility. Chappelle isn’t policing, but reacting to the pushbacks, which isn’t fair to him. Since they don’t really know him or his kind. They had labelled him before he went up on stage. Why do you think he should bother to be peaceful and ignorant?

Chappelle is now controversial for good. He drops the bag and everyone can see it. The ones who is displeased cannot mange the reality we live in. They cannot manage their expectations or what is really going on. There are things missing and people who feels touched, feels betrayed and questioned by this. However, have they seen any of other pieces? It is not like he haven’t used this sort of humour before… and they should have been prepared.

Chappelle is bold. He doesn’t pack himself in correctness or badging himself in what is right at the time. Chappelle just spoke his mind and explained a discrepancy in society. However, trying to cancel him is a lost cause. He will just grow stronger. If you have issues with what he said. Try to get legislators to work on legislation and just laws. Make sure the government institutions and everyone else follows these ideals. Not expect a comedian to dance to your tune. That’s not happening. Because, if he did? He wouldn’t be funny. Period. Peace.

Opinion: Trump will not conquer the Silicon Valley

Today, former President Donald J. Trump have launched his Social Media platform – the “Truth Social”, as a part of the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG). This a formed business after a merger with Digital World Acquisition Group (DWAG). The TMTG will have initial growth with the capital from DWAG. So, it is the DWAG who funds the operation and TMTG.

The first launch is the “Truth Social” which is supposed to compete with Facebook and other social medias. That will be a hard battle and not something to easily compete with. Not like other sites haven’t tried and other entrepreneurs has done it’s bidding too. Yes, the hardcore Trump supporters will join in. Just like the few phony Republican’s who bought the “Freedom Phone” too.

That Trump will fight “big tech” isn’t surprising. As Trump needs a new hustle and new scheme to raise funds. Clearly with the evaluation of close to a billion before even launching or having a beta-version out. Heck, there are just pre-pre-signups to it. Therefore, his really betting on another people’s money. While social media haven’t been a cash-cow or an easy way of earning profits. Since, you need research and development. Always need for more updates and reignite to new platforms and versions of smartphones. That is a costly endeavour…

It’s hard to believe that this company will be able to fight the giants now. Since, the owners of other social media are so big, and they have such a “monopoly” over the various fields. In this regard, don’t expect TMTG to be able to compete with Google or Facebook. Heck, they have to battle to even compete with Yahoo. Seriously, they will be a 4Chan and a Reddit level of importance. Some might even say a own stage of IRL Chat or Discord server. Have a hard time believing in the launch or the credibility to beat “big tech”.

I’m old enough to remember Clifford “T.I.” Harris launching the social media site “Streetcred.com” and it never popped off. It was a flair and a try into a new field for the rapper and entrepreneur. However, it wasn’t all that and neither was the features on the sight anything to aspire too. Neither was your friends there or your family. So, it was only a few fans of T.I. and that’s it.

On this site and networks… it will be filled the Trump supporters and the Republicans who feels left out from the rest of the social media sphere. It will be a 4Chan and a Gab. I cannot see this becoming a true a competitor or even can gain so much traction. Since, the established ones have the familiarity and the people on it already. So, it’s a David against Goliath without even a proper tool to sling the stone.

I have a feeling this will be dissolved just like “Streetcred.com” did. Unless, he has enough gullible supporters and rich patronage who wants to fund the losing enterprise. Since, this will not be a winning a place or a profitable enterprise. No, this will be an endless money-pit with few to none avenues of finding places to gain revenue. Therefore, TMTG better hope DWAG gets more investors and financial muscles. They have a mountain to climb and need experienced people to pass over the mountain passes.

Trump has so many failed businesses. This would be another one… wouldn’t be shocked if this followed the airplane, vodka or steaks. Heck, this could be another casino venture of epic failure. So, the ones putting stocks into this and investing. The money is already lost and there will be no way of getting returns on the investment. That capital is gone and so in the name of the company as well. Peace.

Nigeria: Legal Defence and Assistance Project (LEDAP) – LEDAP Condemns the Twitter Suspension by the Federal Government and Calls for its Immediate Reversal (10.06.2021)

Opinion: Buhari acts more swift on Twitter than he does on internal matters ….

The Nigerian General and President Muhammadu Buhari have swiftly reacted after Twitter deleted one of his posts on its pages. As it was in breach with it’s Terms of Service (ToS). This has clearly hit a nerve and the Nigerian government have in response suspended Twitter and also it’s official accounts.

The state have gone rouge on this. The President took it personal that his account was touched and his reasoning for posting on Twitter got under question. However, this only shows his inept and lack of good governance. It is only showing his disregard for free speech and liberty for all. Just because, he couldn’t follow the standards of the social media company and their policies. As a President he should be the example of good conduct and not the other way around.

President Buhari is only looking like a sour loser. Retaliating at Twitter and banning it in the Republic. Making it a criminal act to publish or write there. That just show how easy it is to make a small case into a societal problem. The President could have taken it on the chin, but instead gone to battle. A battle he will loose and only losing support elsewhere. His looking crazy and Twitter has lost nothing. That’s the tragic thing here.

If President Buhari had worked this to reform SARS and the Police itself. The Nigerian public would maybe been giddy. If the President had worked as hard to stop insurgency and violence. Instead his thriving in it and using it for political capital. The President should have acted on this in that manner and not on a social media site. It just show his mixed priorities.

The General should have shown the will and power towards Boko Haram. When civilians are abducted and kidnapped. When massacres have happened and when police brutality have happened. He should have cried havoc and showed character then too. However, then his talking about procedures, policies and all other excuses to do something. At that point, the President is a slow-train coming.

However, when Twitter triggered him. He could just touch the button and silence it. That’s why this is a bitch move. It is not a proof of power or force. No, it is an act of an coward. Who cannot stand up to his words or his acts on social media. It is easier to suspend or block a page, than actually ask why the post was deleted in the first place.

That just shows what sort of man Buhari is. If Buhari thinks this is wise or great. It is his greatest illusion. A man with such an office can achieve so much and create a lot of things for the future. However, this is only belittling his citizens and their voices online. Instead of showing greatness and humility. The President retaliated… and acted in fury.

President Buhari haven’t proved that he has achieved anything this term. Only been an android, Jubril from Sudan and blocked twitter. He got little to nothing to show from it and his record is abysmal. This is not making things better. Peace.
