“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.
