CollaideIDK how someone can talk about "cherry picking" when it comes to the negative attention.
Imagine a scenario where you meet ten people in a day and upon greeting them 9/10 say 'hi' back and 1/10 says 'fuck you', what do you think you're more likely to focus on / remember?
Human brain is biased in that way
This is what I was about to say, not the first time I heard from a public figure who posts on youtube that it doesn't really matter how many positive comments you get, the negative ones get to you and stay with you more.
I also understand as a non-public figure how this is harder to understand or believe but it seems true.
One of the possible explanations to this bias, that I heard, is that this trait stayed with us from the prehistoric days when we as humans had to remember what hurt us so that we avoid it in the future.
If you cant deal with it then you shouldn't be a public figure. Nobody who is a public figure is free of critics in one form or another. As far as views go, what did he expect? The audience he built off of TF2 to be interested in every other game he plays? That's just stupid. If the content you built your channel on changes drastically you cant expect your entire base to follow you. Also he keeps mentioning "the audience" as if its one person when the thing he is referring to isn't even the majority of the people who watch his vids. TBH this just sounds like another case of youtuber glass ego (i have seen other youtubers torch there channels over similar pettiness). The part where he is literally in tears over random autist youtube comments tells me he needs to go see a counselor.
