    Do you want to talk with us about this video? We’ll do a sort of Q&A or AMA or whatever in our subreddit:
    The Addiction and the Refugee videos will be online for 12 more hours before we delete them. This should be enough time for enough people to download them. Feel free to upload them elsewhere, but NOT on ISclips and NOT on Facebook. We’ll take them down on those two platforms because we don’t want people to monetize them or use them as viral content. Everywhere else is ok though!

      Not cool. No matter how big your channel gets, it is still not okay to steal video ideas from other channels. Just like how you stole this video from Coffee Break.

      I have been researching all the stuff I know through my whole life. The era before the Internet helped me to use critical thinking and research skills to the current one. Your videos are just one of the sources of cool ideas. Since the begining I felt you guys want to get a MA/PhD level accuracy into an easily accesible format. Mistakes happen, a human thing, and kudos to you for knowing that :) Thank you for your awesome work.

    Unfortunate that those two videos were less researched/objective. Still intresting content. You are good content creators. However i think that you could let them be up and put a disclaimer on the video, and say that this is inacurate, or we didnt bring this part up... Since it's still alot of workhours put into it.
    And if you fixed this video based on Coffebreak, just put a shoutout to him in the description of your video to thank him for pointing out the hickups, which actually in the long term will increase your credability by owning up to misstakes. However credit should be where credit is due, just as in your sources in the videos, as a thank you for the people that help to improve the goal of the channel, which i assume is to increase knowledge in a fun and intresting way.

    I looked up "coffee break" and that's such a garbage channel. "comedian tells joke, everyone loses mind" is a great example as to what a dipshit coffee break is.

    1. It's misrepresenting the Louis C Clark thing as people being offended at a joke. No, the guy's is a sexual predator who forced women to look at his naked genitals. Just this alone should be enough reason to dump his channel. It's so dishonest. Wow
    2. Then he goes on a tirade about "snowflakes" and callout culture. What an ahole.
    3 And his Kurzgesagt video. Wow. Yeah sure Kurzgesagt is such a meanie for making this video and exponsing themselves instead of letting Coffee Break do it first.

    @Kurzgesagt: You are still wrong, nazis didn't find your video toxic because of your attitude or w/e, but because facts are toxic to them. The refugee video was necessary and it is an absolute shame you deleted it.

    • apprentice2101
      apprentice2101 18 klukkustundum síðan

      By scientific standards, their approach is really sketchy actually. I work in science and I unsubscribed from them because of some questionable ethics they have demonstrated.
      Kurzgesagt knew for two years that there was a problem with their sources on "Addiction", but didn't fix them because the video was successful. This clearly shows that the factual correctness is not their top priority. The right thing for them to do would have been to take the video down when they first were pointed out that the problems exist. Being wrong happens, and it's not a big deal, unless you keep insisting on it despite knowing the facts as Kurzgesagt have. It's also worth pointing out that the video earned clicks and revenue while it was up (18M!) -- which could be a mishandled conflict of interest.
      They rush to produce this video after they learned that another youtuber (CB) wanted to publicize the problems with "Addiction". When CB reached out to them pointing out the problems, Kurzgesagt took it as an attack on their image, rather than an opportunity to improve. They delayed the publication of CB's work by promising him an interview, then made it irrelevant by publishing first. Integrity implies being honest and transparent, and that's not what's happening here. They promised him an interview at most three days before their release, leaving no time for CB to finish his work. Denying CB's publicity makes perfect sense from the business standpoint, but flies in the face of their "integrity and high standards" claim.
