why do people hate Alfie?? i've seen several people saying he's a dick and i don't know why
it’s not necessarily him as an individual that people hate, it’s more what he does????? how he treats people/youtube?? and how youtube/the media treats him??
my guess, as to why ppl have hate around him/his youtube channel, would be because of his unoriginal, repetitive videos (literally all they are are collabs/tags/challenges/q+as/click-baity etc - those videos are fine if it’s once in a while, but if it’s 100% of your content, that’s just…ugh…you’re not putting any effort into them) and he gets praised for them (in the mainstream media) as if he was original, creative (which is so wrong he steals/never credits people’s *cough* phil’s *cough* ideas – one time he even stole a viewer’s idea and made money out of it woW) when really he just plays the youtube game (upload almost every day/week, average 10+ minute videos, simple entertainment – one video he apparently just read a buzzfeed article?? what??) with no uniqueness/honesty to his work (see: his two books that are a total ripoff of Wreck This Journal
idk he just annoys the crap out of me as well ahah but i guess if he’s making people laugh and stuff it’s not too bad but ugh idk makes me upset that he’s like seen as the face/king of YouTube if we’re crossing out pewds as being no. 1 most subbed when their are so many other people using their voice to help (in the sense of motivation, supporting, inspiring etc.) and educate others on certain things – as well as entertain in a more genuine way :///
He just isn’t some peoples, including mine, favourite kind of guy lmao but like who you like i guess ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
