Dave and apparently they liked what they Saw hundreds of reaction channels made Videos on Dave's latest upload and it Was being shared across other social Media platforms like Reddit and Facebook That being said there were those who Didn't look too kindly on the Video hi I'm Dave from boy band today We're going to look at some of the don't Stay in school hate comments and also Some of the nice and constructively Critical ones too so my fragile Self-esteem doesn't get shattered this Has been a freaking surreal few weeks I Released my song don't stay in school And 5 million views on Facebook later it Seems a few of you guys agree with me And ah it's freaking cult out here screw This there much better but not everyone Agreed with its message that the school Syllabus is flawed it was a slightly Contentious issue I'm soft serving it Someone posted it to Reddit and that day It was at the top of the controversial Page for the entire freaking website Clearly this shows it's something we Need to discuss hate comments and Criticism aside there were those in the Academic system that took the the Concerns Dave brought forward to heart And decided to make a few necessary Changes one message really stood out Because this person's School actually Listened don't stay in school is

Changing our school so many of his Students shared it on Facebook and Twitter and some even emailed it to the Head of the school and now we're having An assembly tomorrow to discuss what we Want to learn about and how the school Can help that so I was like this is Amazing I need to find out more and tell Everyone so I Skyped her hi how's it Would you care to recap what has gone on On your end right a load of students From my school had been sharing and Posting your video don't stay in school It actually got sent around on email to A couple of teachers and it got noticed By them we've had assemblies and we've Talked about it in forms the lyrics have Been sent around to everyone we've even Had proper discussions discussing what We want to sort out what we want to Substitute Dave's musical Masterpiece Had sparked serious conversation about Whether or not the school system needed To change and even though it didn't Cause Monumental societal change it Still had a positive impact on both Students and teachers unfortunately that Positivity didn't quite reach David Himself on the 9th of July 2015 Dave Posted a video with a striking title I Hate myself wherein he discussed his Recent self-loathing and struggles with Finding motivation to be productive Despite his astronomical growth I

Actually haven't posted a video since March and haven't even freaking tweeted Since miday and and it's weird because I've been having the most success I've Ever had in my life and the least Motivation to do anything when I was Planning to make this video I kept Thinking how can I make this more Sharable or how can I make it more Relatable and useful and I think it Specifically shouldn't be I want you to Understand me a bit better and I feel Like if I try to make this more sharable Or relatable then I might not get across Accurately what I'm feeling he went on To describe his frequent emotional Detachment and his experience going to a Therapist to help solve the problem While there was progress Dave felt that He was in uncharted waters So eventually After therapy and a lot of reading I Came to a conclusion I want to deal with The fundamental issue of me hating Myself into working to see if that makes Me more consistent and happy and this is The first time I've tried to address This issue of hating myself into Proactivity so I've been trying to Figure out what I value and can I use Another method to motivate myself other Than self-hatred cuz as it stands right Now deep down I still hate myself but The rational part of my brain is getting Much better at caring for myself like I

Would care for another person that was Having this kind of problem this is a Fundamental change to my personality so I don't expect it to be quick and I Haven't figured this out yet but I am Slowly starting to get myself into a Routine of working not based on Self-hatred which is how I've released This video here would close out the Video with an open and honest message About how unsure he is about this new Part of his life I actually wrote here In the notes for this video to come up With a strong ending but I think that's Part of the problem I it real life is Messy if you got anything from this Video brilliant but there is no obvious Message I don't know where this is going Yet and I will keep you informed I will Do my best to now that I've explained This I feel a lot more comfortable that You understand why I'm doing this I will Try to post on Facebook and Twitter and Tumblr and everything more frequently to Keep you updated with how I'm getting on And as soon as I am ready I will post Videos again hopefully much more Consistently because I don't hate myself Cheers for watching and have a nice day Naturally his fan base made their Support for Dave quite clear with Comments such as Dave you're a beautiful Human you're more intelligent and Self-aware than most people are even

An apology for the harsh things he said About rice gum after a brief break in Early 2018 Dave made his way back to YouTube and attended VidCon where he had The opportunity to further network with Other well-known creators as you'd Expect this resulted in collaborations With other creators that also wanted to Make their own music videos the first of Which being the song Empty that was made Alongside Jaden animations one of the Most popular animated storytime creators On the platform topics like anorexia Bulimia were a prominent part of the Song's message and showcased Jaden's own Feelings about the issues being Discussed the song was adored by fans And the behind the scenes was posted to Buy the band's YouTube channel where it Received over 14 million views Dave's Next hit song was with James from the Odd ones out another large storytime Animator the song was titled life is fun Featuring James upbeat personality Contrasted with Dave's dark outlook on Life the project completely dwarfed all Of Dave's Other collaborations with the Video gaining over 150 million views as Incredible as this achievement was it Would soon be surpassed by his Collaboration with PewDiePie on his Congratulations song with the video Garnering over 230 million views Dave Had done it he managed to cement himself

In YouTube history with not just one Hard-hitting song but several his Networking production and musical skills Took him from making beat tutorials on YouTube all the way to producing hit Songs with some of the largest creators On the platform so where did he go from Here what did Dave do with this newly Built Empire well not much actually he Was still fting a wall with his mind and As the years went on his uploads started To dwindle although he assisted in Creating lyrics for PewDiePie's minor Day music the uploads would stop in December of 2019 the last remaining Interaction between Dave and his fans on YouTube was a community post where he Asked his viewers to vote whether or not He should take all his medication at Once where 94% of the 170,000 votes told Him not to do it the last known posts on His Twitter and Instagram were made on The 7 of April 2021 if things ended here For Dave it would have been perfectly Fine a well respected YouTuber that left The internet jental strain would have Been somewhat a good way to end things But unfortunately for Dave things Weren't that simple on the 7th of September 2022 an anonymous Reddit user Made a post on r/ boy in a band that Brought some radically chilling Allegations against Dave to light Quoting sometime ago a group of his ex

Bandmates the post would end with the Following statement below you can find a Little bit of proof of how he treated People confirmed and proven by multiple Of his ex-girlfriends and friends that He'd hurt and replaced over the years we Know that you care about the Persona he Made for himself on the internet he Destroys people we know this is hard we Never wanted to do this but what about Those girls what about future ones They're people this needs to stop he Needs to be stopped please the proof Proof that was presented at the bottom Of the video were cropped out Screenshots of conversations between the Alleged and while it's possible that These are genuine it's equally likely That they aren't to say that the full Out from this post was shocking would be A gross understatement hundreds of People in the subreddit argued over the Legitimacy of the claims presented some Said there wasn't any concrete evidence Provided Beyond screenshots and ruled Out the post as an attempt to gain Clouds that made similar disparaging Claims about Dave's past once the Alleged misdeeds of Dave reached YouTube The community would see a blaze of Videos that detailed the contents of the Letter coupled with their thoughts on The matter the entire controversy even Spawned memes about how Dave quote
