Ninety-nine percent of the content that is uploaded on to YouTube is utter garbage. People trying to make videos or be funny. Some have got “youtube famous” and sold out to companies who use them as advertisers. Two people who I think are amazing are below. First is sixteen year old Bertie Gilbert who is more mature that most thirty year olds. He is a talented film maker. The second is Sheridon Hackland. A youtuber who finds time to make videos which actually have content rather than banal time-wasting challenges or dares.
Most of the stuff that’s written on the Internet is bullshit. Yes that maybe a harsh way to start this blog but it’s true.
I have had the misfortune to be stumbling across some stories about youtubers that have been accused of sexual crimes. Not the greatest thing you want to read about.
There are always the people who will want to give their opinion and as I said most of it is crap. Sexual crime is a very serious matter. Those who are accused have to be guarded in what they say. I know this from experience. I haven’t talked about what happened to me over a decade ago. I couldn’t and didn’t think it was appropriate.
When someone accuses you of a crime it’s a very serious matter, especially if you are a position of authority or someone older who the person may look up to then the matter is treated as being more serious. It’s a fact. This doesn’t seem to be getting across to those on YouTube who have had fingers pointing at them.
Some have been accused of rape of children. Yet have carried on making videos and dismissed the accusations as a bit of fun gone wrong. Unfortunately if the authorities are informed of a crime is it their duty to investigate it and it becomes deadly serious.
I hope that in time the truth will come out so those who have suffered can feel they have received justice.
