New Video ”Why Internet Fame Doesn’t Matter” (CC)

Here’s why everyone hates the Fine Brothers right now:

Benny and Rafi Fine — better known as the Fine Brothers — rose to YouTube fame with “react” videos like “Kids React to Gay Marriage” and “Elders React to Dubstep.”

Their biggest video of all time has nearly 44 million views. 

Like most successful creators, they sought to protect what they saw as their “intellectual property.” Last week they announced they’d applied to trademark the word “react.”

This was their big mistake. YouTube subscribers and creators were pissed, with many YouTubers alleging on  that their videos had been removed by the Fine Brothers. 

Between Jan. 30 and Feb. 3, roughly 340,000 people unsubscribed from the Fines’ YouTube channel. You can even watch their subscriber count fall in real time:

All this backlash has led them to rescind their application and apologize. But it’s pretty clear that their explanation is bullshit.


Happy birthday to the one of the most wonderful person on earth!! I wish you a happy and healthy life and make sure to eat a lot of cake! Happy birthday Phil! 🎉🍰

Everyone wants Youtube fame these days, but no one knows how to get it. First things first: make good videos. But before that, actually, let me tell you how to make good videos. 

I’ve been known to watch quite a bit of Youtube. When I don’t feel like doing anything productive, Youtube is my go-to for almost everything. From beauty tutorials to vlogs I watch a little of everything. Carrie Hope Fletcher is one of my favorite female youtubers.. I’ve watched her from the beginning, ever since I heard about her from Nerimon or Alex Day’s channel.

Carrie herself is crazy multitalented with an undeniable love for books and cake and everything Disney. Her rather large group of followers are called the Hopefuls, and she has quite proudly named herself their honorary big sister, a title that even I have grown to know her by. She’s kind and sweet and gives some of the best advice I’ve ever heard. Not to mention she is an actress and singer and lives in the theatre capitol of the world: London. A place I could only ever dream of living. She currently plays Eponine in West End’s production of Les Miz, along with an ensemble track before becoming Ponine. This is her dream role, as she told her Hopefuls, because when she was younger she played Young Eponine in the production. She is currently the only actress to have portrayed both roles on any West End stage. This is one of things I admire most about her. When I watched her older videos she was just a talented girl trying to pursue her dreams of performing onstage and now I see her and she’s living her dream. She loves performing and it’s because of her love of theatre and books and music that I feel I have such strong connection with her. She gives me hope that it is possible to achieve my dream roles on stage. Although she’s not too much older than me, I look up to her as a real life role model. 

Check out her youtube channel here.

What’s Wrong With The Youtube Generation

I wish I was a famous youtuber so I could have my face drawn just in pencil

that sounds so incredibly nice

even if they made chibi drawings

and I would like to be shipped because it would be so funny to me

and I wish I could draw my life

and I want personal fanfics

it would just be so great

and I could tell these people about myself and meet them one day

and if the panel was over id still make sure they all at least got a high five at LEAST

and I would reply to all their messages and befriend them even if they weren’t youtube famous

if they were cutting I would even give them my number

I just want to be seen. and have friends that see me through that so I could see them too, no matter how many tweets they sent
