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.

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.

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.

The Def Noodles Lawsuit is here… and the “comedian” cannot take a joke…

CIVIL CODE – CIV DIVISION 1. PERSONS [38 – 86] ( Heading of Division 1 amended by Stats. 1988, Ch. 160, Sec. 12. )

PART 2. PERSONAL RIGHTS [43 – 53.7] ( Part 2 enacted 1872. )

45.  Libel is a false and unprivileged publication by writing, printing, picture, effigy, or other fixed representation to the eye, which exposes any person to hatred, contempt, ridicule, or obloquy, or which causes him to be shunned or avoided, or which has a tendency to injure him in his occupation” (California Legislative Information).

The problem here for Dennis Feitosa aka “Def Noodles” versus Daniel M. Keem aka “Keemstar” libel lawsuit is that the plaintiff has to prove the burden of proof. Def Noodles and his attorneys has to prove actual malice. This malice have to be “clear and convincing” evidence of that. The team and the people around has to also prove that there is qualified privilege. Because a person is allowed to: “In the defamation context, a qualified privilege permits someone to make a statement that would typically be considered defamatory, but because of particular circumstances, a particular statement made would not be considered to be defamatory.” (Cornell Law School – Defamation).

The lawsuit claims that Keemstar should pay damages of $75,000 USD and attorney costs as well. Therefore, the team is thinking they can chuck this one out and not think it can be dismissed. What Keemstar can do is to use lots of allegations and assumptions from Def Noodles own show against him even. As he has targeted Keemstar for months on end and come with every sort of slur in the book. Therefore, Def Noodles is in trouble from the on-set in this case.

What is striking and gives leeway for Keemstar is in the tweet that he uses as main evidence in the case says explicitly:

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” and he followed up with

Def Noodles has declined to give us a comment on these allegations made against him”.

These two tweets was published on the 21st May 2021 on KeemStar’s twitter. It just proves that there is on libel standard for Def Noodles and another for him. Because, if this is the level and it’s stands in court.

James Charles and so many others should challenge Def Noodles in court for defamation and libel. They should file cases on the regular, as Def Noodles cannot cover a story or an alleged allegations without taking it too far.

I am looking forward for the attorneys to drop the burden of proof. They have to prove that these tweets has destroyed his reputation. While we all know that Def Noodles has destroyed that all by himself and by his constant lack of research on topic. Neither does he have comedic timing or punchlines. No, his just a cringe-fest and a tea-channel without doing proper work before going live with the stories on YouTube.

Def Noodles should look into his own statements and the content he has dropped on Twitter (before it was banned), Instagram and on his YouTube channel(s). He should be careful doing this… by going after Keemstar this way. The YouTuber should be worried about it coming back to haunt himself. As he is dropping videos daily and there is enough content to possibly pick him apart.

Def Noodles is suing for libel and has to prove it all now. Keemstar will turn this on his head and possibly find ways to return the favour. Certainly, Def Noodles has a lot to prove and his a man who isn’t sitting on the side of integrity or righteous actions. Dennis is the sort of hack and goes after online personalities to get more clicks on his videos. Therefore, he isn’t the guy who sells the truth from the soap-box or YouTube channels he runs. 

There is enough cases where he has called people “dumb-fuck” and other slurs in combination of calling people “Alt-Right” without any justification. If that being Augie RFC or Rich Lux for that matter. This man has no trouble defaming or discrediting people without any sort of proof. He does it just because he can and his a comedian. So, it’s a supposed joke, but we know the drill here…

Well… well… Def Noodles, we knew you had thin skin, but now Keemstar will go for your chops. If the courts isn’t dismissing this. He has a burden of proof and needs to prove it all. That will not be easy.

What a waste of time and money. The moment Def Noodles looses this case. He should be worried that people could challenge him and sue him to oblivion too. It is not like Def Noodles has been an honest actor and by the look of it he never will be.

A YouTube villain who came to us as a “cat in a Mine-craft house” and turned into a trying to be an edgy commentator, which is clearly not working for him. We know that he cannot take a joke or understand them even. I think he has to settle with pallet-cleansers and pickle-ice-cream because that’s all he knows. Peace.
