If you haven’t heard, there have been some really troubling stories about manipulative and even possibly abusive relationships between online creators and their fans.
While that situation certainly spurred me to make this video, I also think a video like this is long overdo. We’re excited to be facing these problems head-on, because the only way out is through.
Thanks to our task force for helping me edit this video and make sure I wasn’t too clumsy with the work, especially to Sahitya.
