YouTuber Carry Minati’s uploaded a video about the ongoing feud between YouTube and TikTok. It went viral and was taken down by the video-sharing platform. Now this move didn’t do down well with his fanbase, who slammed YouTube on social media. According to reports, in the video, which was deleted by YouTube, the 20-year-old, whose real name is Ajey Nagar, had made a direct attack on TikToker Amir Siddiqui. He had stated that TikTok is an inferior platform, which restricts content creators’ time and imagination. He also pointed out numerous ‘flaws’ in Amir’s content, through his usual ‘roast’ style.
As soon as the video was taken down, hashtags such as #CarryMinati and #JusticeForCarry started trending online. “It was just a fun roast, @CarryMinati. Everything else aside, I’m rooting for you. Keep the good content coming in buddy,” actor Himansh Kohli wrote on Twitter. “I know people, this is very disappointing and a shocker,” YouTuber Ashish Chanchlani wrote on Twitter.
However, there were also people who agreed with YouTube’s move. KKR wrote, "So finally @YouTubeIndia has deleted the #carryminatitiktokroast video n it’s 100% perfect decision. #YoutubeIndia should delete all such videos, which are having abuses to teach lesson to those who want to become famous by abusing only. Roast if you have talent, not only abuses.”
“This isn’t shocking at all. In fact I’m happy. He deserved that. He shouldn’t have used that abusive language. That’s thoroughly wrong. Roasting is trend but abusing isn’t & shouldn’t be a trend. #carryminati should learn from this,” a user commented. “YouTube deleted the video for spreading hatred! He crossed the fine line between roasting and harassment!” wrote another user.
Carry Minati has over 16 million subscribers on YouTube, and over five million followers on Instagram. Let’s see if the video is reinstated by YouTube.
