    hope that this answers ur questions guys! love u, and i will see u guys a-next time :) EDIT: for any questions on us not being able to respond to YT comments - it was protocol, not a "contracted" rule or a "fire-able" offense, but we were definitely told that we were not supposed to do it. anyone who has done it either has a different contract than i did or is just flaunting the rules (which some do and I did a few times). and, yes, none of the ladylike girls are allowed to be in my videos anymore!

    I am new to your channel and didn't know that you were a part of the Buzzfeed team in the past, However, I am very proud of your decision to leave them as I believe that decision took a lot of courage on your part to follow through with. You are doing great and I love your channel. Keep up the great work because Buzzfeed can't comprehend who they lost because if they did understand they would have tried to compromise and offer you a better deal which entails more responsibilities and some kind of credit for the awesome work that you were providing, which only seemed fair. Moreover, fair isn't always what you get in life so I understand your reason for leaving and doing what was best for you at the time. Blessings in everything that you do from this point forward.

    Buzzfeed taught me how to make a Paper Airplane, it may have annoyed my parents, but they were happy it kept me occupied and entertained bahahha😂 This was an amazing explanation and I can’t speak because I’m socially awkward, how did you do that, you’re so brave I don’t have that courage.... Btw love your videos (like your gonna see this hahahha) 😂

    I have to be honest. You are one of my favorite RUclip stars to watch. I go to bed watching your videos. The way you say “alright” makes my heart happy. You are truly an artist that I look up to. Keep up the good work

  • Whyntir

    The idea of a company cashing in on your identity. Your name and face and making you the product without any ownership of the content. In that situation you no longer work a job, Buzzfeed owns people and their identities and that is not okay. This is the video that made me stop associating with anything buzzfeed. While Saf argues that the lack of identity and credit is par for the course, it SHOULDN'T be. And the fact that Buzzfeed even considered cashing checks off the identities of their most recognizable employees is showing how out of control they have become. I quit Try Guys, Ladylike and even Worth It, main edition with Steven and Andrew. Love the boys but I am not going to support a business like Buzzfeed.

    The first reason was understandable why they didn’t want you commenting on stuff on RUclip as things can be easily misinterpreted by others and can easily make you or buzzfeed look bad. It’s better not to comments on things . However everything else is very understandable

    I REALLY do not like Buzzfeed after hearing this shit.. It makes me not want to support them ever again. Shady ass people who steal ideas from others like Saf, make money off them, and give neither Saf nor any other content creator proper credit. Damn shame.
    The thing about RUclip really takes the cake though.. you were not allowed to respond to any RUclip comments? That's such a fucking dictatorial thing... ugh.. I am so glad you left... you have such amazing talent, and it was honestly wasted on Buzzfeed! You are so much better on your own where YOU can control what YOU want to do. Much love.

Apart from ASMR artists I really don't follow RUclip channels or "youtubers" but your video dissing Wish came up as a suggestion and as I really don't trust services like RUclip I was getting ready to write it off as some kind of plant to get us all buying from Wish. Instead i watched like 10 of your videos because I enjoyed your sincerity. I definitely think you can have no need to be controled by a host channel.

      The Try Guys are no longer w/ Buzzfeed. And I just saw a video of Try Guys recently, where they had a guest who was their workmate in Buzzfeed who is no longer there as well. I guess she can't collab w/ the one's who are still w/ Buzzfeed.. but she can w/ those who also left.
