Wow. I hope that guy can sue whoever was messing with him. I looked at his channel and he just posts innocent videos about stuff he finds cool. He will gain at least one extra subscriber tonight.
This guy only gets a few thousand subscribers each video, but I can say without hesitation, they are some of the most interesting and thought-provoking videos I have ever seen. I hope this guy can get back on his feet, and I know reddit will be there to support him!
Your employers don't fucking own you. If someone is making harassing phone calls, that is between that person and your employer..
Holy shit -- I did my internship at CPS and I honestly cannot imagine doing that for 10 YEARS! He seems like a stand-up dude, too -- exactly the kind of guy you'd want working in that position! I cannot imagine how tough that decision was to make and I sincerely hope it ends up working out for him. I will definitely subscribe!
Really wish this got more attention. Never heard of the guy but it always breaks my heart to see small, committed content creators trying to make something of themselves be harassed.
Nooooo, wait for them to fire you and file a wrongful termination lawsuit
I got to know him when he came into my neck of the woods and reviewed the Spear Hunter Museum which is like 15 min from my house. Seemed like a super nice guy and find it sad that some people have such shitty lives they have nothing better to do then try and ruin other peoples lives. Like those fuck ups who swat people over stupid shit like losing at a video game. Hope he gets more subs and views on his videos so he can make it a full time job. I've been a member of his patreon for some time and he will send you a post card as a thank you for supporting him.
Dude seems pretty genuine, cool videos too
Dude seem genuinely passionate about his work. Hope whoever’s doing this to him stops shitting on harmless videos
Honestly who the FUCK does this?
And also this guy is personally harassed and his superior's decision is to threaten to fire him? That guy needs to take a good long look in the mirror and really think about what actually matters in this life. Good god what a despicable string of actions from both people.
This guy is putting all his eggs in 1 basket of his hobby. I hope he succeeds
My old employer came out with a similar policy to this out of nowhere a few years ago. It didn't apply to me, but I feel terrible for anyone who wants to have a stable job and follow a dream like this at the same time.
The trailer on the front of his channel is such a great intro :)
i was just gonna like his vid and move on, but the content of his channel is actually really interesting. gladly subbed.
I hadn't heard of him before your post so thanks for spreading the word. I'm excited to check out his channel, seems like a cool and passionate guy!
This kind of shit always hits me hard. He’s just a nice guy trying to do good work as well as share his knowledge and interests with others. I checked out his YouTube page right after I saw this and his videos really are fascinating and show some rare, interesting historical content. Surprised I haven’t found this page earlier, definitely going to subscribe.
His number of subscribers seems to be growing steadily after this video, which I think is pretty cool. Hope it works out for the best for him.
Balls in his court and he's going to put it where his mouth is. Very exciting! Good luck!
Checked out a few of his videos. Subscribed. He just seems like a real genuine guy. The content is actually super interesting.
I think that an organization that makes its business on protecting people from harassment should do a better job of protecting their employees...
I can't imagine making my "soul source of employment" a platform run by a google. With a regular employment situation people get certain rights protected by law. Posting videos to youtube can make you money - if google allows it to be so. But if for any crazy reason they shut it down - that's it. And if something happens there will probably be a post here, a bunch of comments full of indignation and a couple weeks later no one will remember.
"So I consulted with my wife and .... (my lawyer? Nope)....put in my two week notice" goddamnit
