EMAILING a C&D!!! You can't make this shit up!!!!
I'm not posting this response on the website this comment was left on, I'm posting it here so that you can see how there are some fans that just blow shit WAAAAY out of proportion, no matter how big or little the celebrity is.
The content of the video was violent, yes, but it is a legit parody and that is not breaking any laws, even with said violence. I once saw a Youtube video of an honest to God suicide. Some dude was up on a podium at some sort of conference and suddenly pulled out a gun, put it in his mouth, and blew the back of his head all over the wall behind him. I don't know about you, Taylor, but to me that's a hell of a lot worse for people to stumble upon. There are plenty more suicides uploaded to Youtube, not to mention beatings and probably killings too, that are much more important to bring to Youtube's attention than a goddamn parody by some chick who's doing a really shitty job at trying to be Alanis Morissette circa the song "You Outta Know". Uh oh, is this blog going to be taken down because I'm also refusing to kiss your ass, Taylor?
Just because Shane Dawson isn't lawyered up as much as somebody like Taylor Swift is doesn't make it OK to pick on someone who is part of a trend of individuals who help keep Youtube and the businesses they sell ad space to afloat. It's ok to leech off of their talents until they post something that put boo-boo's on your feelings, is that the message of this whole capitalist shit-storm?
You aren't living in a world where you can brain wash via the media as easily as you could starting back in the radio days. There will never be another "War of the Worlds" or another publicity campaign like the one for "The Blair Witch Project."
Bullying such as this can certainly bite you in the ass and make you regret you even tried using Shane Dawson as a diversion tactic. The younger demographics are waking up to the concept of "disinformation" and the ones whom are awake now aren't taking any of Big Business's bullshit lightly.
