    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!

    Miss Nygaard, thank you for all the wonderful videos. I am always excited to see your videos update on my Youtube account! I am a little drunk of gin off the moment, but I do appreciate your videos to the fullest extent! Even the hygenincs with Tyler are enough to make me chuckle on a hard work day! Thank you so much for hours of Youtube delight. I can't wait to see more of your content!

    good for you, my dear. i support you 100%. buzzfeed has changed so much. it used to be a show where a bunch of people around my age tried new things including things that kind of scared them. they also did some funny skits and whatnot. it was great the first year or two but now i find myself watching it less and less. its just not as fun, interesting and real anymore. its flat out just not the same and i dont really like it anymore.

    Stfu please, you still watch their videos and enjoy it
    She left that’s her choice but coming after buzzfeed isn’t right


    isn’t it strange how after they left buzzfeed the next thing most of not all of them did was to create a YouTube channel? 🤨🧐🤔

    I️ was so sad to see you left Lady Like - you were my fav! But your explanation makes me fully support you and I️ Love now being able to see 100% pure YOU for an entire video!
    I️ always thought that the idea of Lady Like was so amazing, but I️ felt like it was being held back somehow.. but this makes sense. Since you’ve left, the content hasn’t been rolling out so much either..
    Either way - glad you have your freedom now, and this is a professional way to discuss all the questions people have. :)

    I used to LOVE buzzfeed. But the more I learned about the company I refuse to watch anymore of their content. They steal ideas from employees & other YouTubers, and mosy importantly they COPY EVERYTHING YOU DO. Not to mention they are very political and biased. When I used to watch buzzfeed videos or taking quizes on the app the last thing I want is to see some political shit. Then they ran out of good ideas and made extreamly stupid quizes/videos like "What kind of pizza are you" Im SO GLAD you left that horrible business & Ive watched every single one of your videos. Looks like leaving there was the best decision you've made :) Keep being amazing, we love you Saf.

    These reasons are interesting. I understand why these things happened. Most of them are for legal protection, or focusing on the bottom line. Corporate sludge that irks all large companies. Can't be said buzzfeed did anything wrong... it's just what they have to do to run a large corporation like that.

    It seems like leaving buzzfeed has became a trend lately... But seriously, im not even surprised. I can imagine all the possibilities and opportunities that working for such a huge company gives you, but there's also the dark side of it: their(sometimes) ridiculous rules you are supposed to follow. And if you dont like these rules, it suddenly stops to be fun anymore. To me... Well, Buzzfeed was never a "big deal". What i mean is that i never really liked the content they make. I watched a few videos and read some articles, but it's not the type of entertainment i would enjoy. My facebook timeline was always overloaded with Buzzfeed's content that people shared and oh god, that was ANNOYING.
