Submit a confession about a Youtuber! This blog is not aiming to be big, we’re aiming to make people happy and maybe build a stronger bond between YouTuber and viewers that's not in the comments. Submit opens Fridays at 4 PM EST. Disclaimers: We do not own any of the pictures used in the background. These posts do not reflect our personal opinions. Don't shoot the messenger.
|Joe since you work with My Damm Channel, what is your opinion on what happened with them and Grace?|
I think it’s a shame the viewers were so very, very misinformed about the whole thing and decided to turn something amicable into a crazy witch hunt. I also think it’s a shame that some bigger YouTubers decided to voice their opinions about a situation they knew little to nothing about. That’s all I’m gonna say.
So for reasons that Grace is too classy to complain about, she’s no longer going to be uploading to the Daily Grace YouTube channel. A channel that, it turns out, she never owned and, in fact, all of the content that she produced there over the last three years is also not owned by her.
Not owning your content is a terrible (though not unusual) thing…it means that the company who does own your content can hold your stuff hostage and do anything they want with it. They can make you do things you don’t want to do. I’m not saying this is what My Damn Channel was doing to Grace, but I am saying I do COMPLETELY understand Grace not wanting to be part of that anymore.
So she’s moving on, but My Damn Channel chose to not allow her to move on with the content and channel that she has built over the last three years.
So…MDC will be uploading old “Classic Grace” videos on the “Daily Grace” channel (first ever YouTube re-runs) and Grace will be starting her YouTube life over at http://www.youtube.com/itsgrace.
You should subscribe to her there, because the future is bright…but she just went from 2.5 million subscribers to 100,000, and that can be a little disheartening.
