    UA-my will Demonerize, Age Restrict and Strike creators for posting about matters like suicide, death, and mental health but will let the media post about it and monetize it all they want! There is no double standard.

  • officialyungrich

    Probably he had beef with someone and got shot in New York when you get problems your as better get ready to fight or get pop

    If your just saying that Etika died, and don’t make a tribute or something, you shouldn’t monetize this video.

  • Neohydra64

    Anyone who takes part in this channel are garbage human beings. Go to hell

    Don’t turn ads off, donate all the ad sense to suicide prevention charity

  • Leo

    UA-my. we demand justice. a random, monetized video from a large company to show off a youtuber you had a hand in ruining. YOU chose to put this video up here youtube. if you think this is showing your condolences THEN ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING. not this. not now. not when its too late.

  • Rūku Uchiha

    You people disgust me making content off of his death.

  • phresh

    youtubers is such a disgusting community, not even knowing one another yet profiting from each other deaths

  • Groundhog X

    Everyone needs to chill out about the monetization. Television channels like E! Don’t get monetized through the UA-my partnership. Their same sponsors that run ads on their television network handle the UA-my ads as well. Same with shows like Jimmy Fallon and Conan..

    This broke my heart, Etika I used to watch you when I was in a struggle with mental health. You just had a happy, crazy vibe. Been with you since the Wii U announcement reaction. I will never forget you. I love you Desmond.

    Thank you, UA-my. Although this isn’t ideal, what with our wanting his original channel and suicide video to be put back up not following through, it’s still really good to see Edit: After watching the video, I’m really upset they didn’t show the video, nor did they actually show the hundreds of thousands of comments fans and family have been leaving, NOR the charities people are donating to to help suicide prevention.

    Nintendo NEEDS to do something to commemorate Etika RIP

    I am so disappointed in some people. It’s not hard to realize when you go too far. To all the people who thought, “oh it’s a just a joke stop being so sensitive and crap”. It’s not a joke to everyone, one mans joke is another mans cause of death. Etika was a great man, his content inspired kids to do whatever they wanted to. And to hear this unfortunate news and to really step back and consider what people might have said to this poor man in his struggles. It’s heartbreaking, it truly is. It’s not hard to try and understand someone’s struggles. But it is hard to realize your mistake after it’s to late. The human race NEEDS to man up and face our mistakes. Or we will keep losing great, innocent people. R.I.P etika, i’ll miss you. 😔

  • MoreThem

    You better turn those ads off there’s a reason you hid the likes/dislikes

  • Chris Cozort

    Everybody on here are literally crying over a UA-my star, why are we never crying for babies who get murdered or us going over all over the world killing & destroying countries for our own political gain? How come we don’t cry for that?

  • J

    People are getting mad and don’t get me wrong even though I didn’t watch him much, I still knew him from basically him being associated with almost anything smash bros. But they’re journalists it’s what they’re supposed to do.

  • MegaManMari

    I thought they would disable comments so I accidentally threw out my popcorn

  • LuigiTheSnicker

    I feel so bad right now I can't believe this happened... I just want to talk to him one last time but i'm too late R.I.P Ekita You will always be remembered in our hearts

    Take this as an example. Anyone who has mental health issues, need to be regularly checked and advised by professionals.


    You guys are aware that even when they report this on TV there are Ads right? It's scummy but that's how it works.

    Get this filth off of Desmond's Site, He deserves much more than you to profit off the passing of truly one of the most influential youtubers in the small niche of the Nintendo community.

    Why are we giving our time about people that kill themselves? We’re going in the wrong direction people

  • JP

    Small detail a lot of news outlets arent reporting. Etika's actual main channel had 800k+ subsribers before it got terminated late last year. He then made two channels more after that, and one of those got terminated. The 100k+ figure was from the channel that wasnt terminated.

  • John Kalin

    So is etika getting a tombstone infront of the headquarters or is this some sort of sick alternative to see etika on #1 Trending?

  • Retierashia

    Rest In Peace Etika. I’ll miss you so much.

    Some of these youtubers don't even know or care about etika. A week ago they was posting "etika gone crazy again" memes and was laughing at him.

    Didn't know the dude at all and never heard of him but man what a tragic story. May he rest in peace. I'm assuming he was struggling with demons inside and unfortunately got the best of him. Mental health is a serioud issue my people never let it be unheard of. Reach out if you are struggling, there's no shame. It's ok. I'd rather y'all to be alive and getting the help y'all need than bottle it in and kamikaze yourself. Rest in Peace Desmond🙏🔥💯

  • HamiltonOW

    they disabled likes and dislikes cuz it would pass rewind this is fucked up using a mans death for his personal gain this is how youtube is looking like 🤡🤡🤡🤡

  • Katie

    I have no idea who this is

  • HedgehogZombies

    I dont get people, once someone important dies they want to profit from it? That is just cruel.
