I agree with this video. Even if it was based around the Felix/PewDiePie drama, people have lost respect for other people just by a mere disagreement. Nobody takes the highroad anymore, and yes Mark and whoever else watched this video tonight, it’s a very lonely road when you decide to take the high road. People lack respect, they lack compassion, they lack forgiveness, sometimes even understanding. Maybe it’s my own opinion, maybe I stand alone with what I just said, but this video grabbed me by my core and shook me and the only thing I have to say is- Someone Finally Said It.

like how backwards is the logic that when ppl are offended they shouldnt act out? i deny that pewdiepie, mark, jack, or any of those youtubers are alt-right or nazis (thats just pretty wild) but… you cant normalize those “”“jokes”“” whether your friend made them or not. sorry, thats just pretty shitty. you can label your beliefs as “basic respect” but you can still respect someone, be their friend, and respect your offended audience by acknowledging these problems instead of just saying “"take the high road and respect everyone!!!”“ lmfao

Regardless of which club you support:
  • Let's all show support for Steven Gerrard today. Let this day, his last game playing in the Liverpool shirt on the grounds of Anfield road, respect the legend Steven Gerrard. Liverpool Captain, England Captain. Today is for Stevie.
If yall don't understand drakes charged up diss I'm about to explain it to yall right now .

People who think Drakes response is weak must not listen to lyrics. I blame it on our generation. Loud ass niggas and big sounding beats got ya’ll ears dumb. Let’s break this down:

.Drake dissed Meek, Nicki, funk Flex, and Jay Z

Funk Flex Diss
“Might have DJ clue drop a bomb on this.”
Clue is on power 105.1. He’s pretty much saying Flex is replaceable.

Jay Z diss
“Trying to take the higher road and still respect my idols, I have a deal with Apple but I still feel entitled. Rumor has it there’s something that only I know.”
I still feel En(TIDAL). Media Take out said a few days ago that Jay Z was behind the entire thing. He had meek do that to drake for pulling out of the apple deal. Drake is confirming Jay had something to do with it.

Nicki Minaj Diss
“Rumor has it I either fucker her or I never could”. He’s addressing Meek Mills insecurities as to weather Nicki fucked him or not.

Meek Mill Disses
“I’m honored that you think this is staged, I’m honored man in fact I’m amazed”
Addressing meek saying he doesn’t write his rhymes.

“I’m done doing favors for people, cause it’s not like I need the money I make off a feature”.
Basically Drake is saying Meek Mill needs him on his albums for them to sell. Also that Meek still needs money by doing features.

“I see you niggas having trouble going gold. turning into some so and so’s that no one knows.”
Meek album is performing poorly. And know one knew him outside of hip hop before his Twitter rant.

“Come live all your dreams out at OVO”
Meek Mills label is Dream Chasers.

“No woman ever had me star struck, or was able to tell me to get my bars up”.
He’s clowning Meek for how obsessed he is with Nicki. He’s also saying Nicki could never tell him to get his bars up because he’s a better rapper then her.

So there you have it. It’s a jab at Meek saying stay in you’re place, or else I’ll really chew you up. Drake is very smart and has everything set the way he wants.

“People who think drakes response is weak must not listen to lyrics”

I know the movie didn’t make Jurassic World-levels of box-office money, but Mad Max: Fury Road still made respectable bank everywhere and got universal critical acclaim, so it bothers and confuses me that Warner Bros. hasn’t yet confirmed that the George Miller’s planned sequel is greenlit for production. I mean, the director isn’t getting any younger and as far as the fandom is concerned, we need more sequels in our lives before Mr. Miller rides eternal, shiny, and chrome to Valhalla.
