First of all, I don't even follow this guy or go on Youtube often. I couldn't care less - although his videos do show up a few times in Reddit Cringe for being fake, provocative and attention seeking. Not exactly a testament to one's integrity.
With your logic, we can't question anything that isn't immediately visible then. How do you know I'm not feeling the same way? How would you know if I was telling the truth or lying? Could you even tell? No, you'd just have to take my word for it.
Don't pretend like many people aren't skeptical of depression and other issues. It's a natural reaction when the line between actual brain chemistry making you feel a certain way and just needing attention and validation because you're hopelessly insecure is so blurred.
But hey, people always tell me I'm an insensitive prick, so what do I know. Maybe they'd treat me better if I made a Youtube video crying for help.
Questioning and calling someone a liar are two different things, correct? I'm not calling someone a liar for having suicidal thoughts one day and happy the next day when they are diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
"see I knew he was scam artist he's happy today!"
"he doesn't look depressed, he's having meet and greets"
Again I ask, are people genuinely ignorant to mental illness or just don't like someone? We're in the technology era and think it's a strange for someone to cry for help online? You don't have to be a sarcastic d bag about it like people don't suffer from these situations everyday.
