In September of last year, YouTuber PewDiePie was recently in the news for his racist remarks, not once but twice. People were quick to say that this would be the end of his career. He was all over the news for weeks about this.
Fast forward 4 months and we see that PewDiePie is still around. In fact not only is he still around, he has more subscribers than anyone else on YouTube and is gaining new subscribers at a rate of about 52,000 per day. Based on his current video views (over the past 30 days) on AdSense revenue alone, it’s estimated the PewDiePie makes as much as $50,000 a month. Pewdiepie has twice as many followers as the #2 most popular, Justin Beiber.
Lesser known YouTuber, but not any less controversial – Logan Paul, was recently in the news for showing a dead body of a person who killed themselves while he was visiting Japan’s suicide forest.
Again the media freaked out and claimed this was the end of his career. But was it? In the last 30 days, he’s had over a million new subscribers – an average of 36,000 per day. His videos have been viewed over 200 million times during that same period, which means that on AdSense revenue alone, he’s pulling in as much as $20,000 a month.
So what did we learn from this information? We learned that no news is really bad news. No matter what these guys did, they still are gaining massive numbers of new followers. Logan Paul’s apology video posted just 4 weeks ago already has 49 million views.
So as you might have guessed, this post is about Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump. Despite being accused of cheating on his wife with a porn star, while his wife was at home with their newborn son, Donald Trump isn’t losing any voters. Those who supported him previously, still do so. This news isn’t a shock to them, nor does it seem to be relevant to how they view his ability to perform his duties as president of the United States of America.
People like dirty laundry. They may deny it but in the end, people like to watch train wrecks. It’s why people like PewDiePie and Logan Paul are laughing all the way to the bank.
And as far as all those people trashing Stormy Daniels, it’s only making her more famous. Her brand value has skyrocketed. It doesn’t matter if she banged Trump or not. All that matters is that everyone — and I do mean everyone is mentioning her.
She’s being talked about on TMZ, CNN, The Late Show with Jimmy Kimmel, Wendy Williams — I mean who isn’t talking about her? Are you going to tell me all that press, albeit negative, is really hurting her? Hell no.
And you know what? I say good for her!
Make that bank girl!
