YouTube can make a you a star. Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bo Burnham, Stevie Ryan, Spoken Reasons all these YouTube stars have made their careers off their YouTube channels. But for this guy it made him both famous and infamous. Kain Carter (love your name by the way) aka Hotdamnirock has been on YouTube for 5 years posting videos about relationships, women, men, just anything he felt like talking about. To me and millions of other people they are hilarious and he's built a very strong following. I was first introduced to him through my little brother. He shared a video on his Facebook timeline called Poor Pussy Management and that was the first video I ever watched by Hotdamnirock but definitely not the last.
It was hilarious and some of it was true but never the less I found it funny, uniquely creative, and completely offensive but in a good way, lol. Anyway from then on I was hooked. I looked at all his past videos, subscribed to catch the new vids and told all my friends and family about his channel.
Now I knew who Patrice O'Neal was, but I never saw or heard this show before. I saw his stand-up on Comedy Central, it wasn't my cup of tea but it was entertaining enough for me to watch it all the way through. I just wasn't major a fan of his. Doesn't mean I don't respect the man or his craft. He was a great comedian he just wasn't one of my favorites.
When he was ousted so to speak by a guy named Dante Nero, who was a good friend of Patrice's here's the backlash he received from some twitter users (If want the harder ones then you need to search for them yourselves.):
For him to get millions of views and thousands of followers in his short stint on YouTube that would be a hell of a magic trick for him to steal other comedians jokes and on liners and then pass them off as his own. With the way social media is today and how the world is revolving around Twitter and Facebook there is no way this dude's channel would even exist. They would've figured that out with the first couple of videos he made.
I feel really bad for the guy but I'm not going to jump on the bandwagon and just bully him for a mistake. I don't believe in that and I don't think that its right. To everyone else out there doing it you should really take a look at his response video. The man isn't lying when he says he's not trying to steal Patrice O'Neal's material and make it his own. He explains his reasoning for posting the videos the way he did. And I believe him. Check it out:
I'm a rock wit you Kain Carter, you got a fan for life in me!
