      Actually, I've followed and supported Phil almost since the inception of his channel and still do. I wouldn't take the time to point out this issue if I didn't care about Phil's credibility or reputation and that's exactly the point. If you had have taken the time to read my comment instead of mindlessly dismissing it as aimless criticism you would have realised this.

      To anybody who holds Phil and Rogue Rocket to a higher standard than that of conventional or mainstream media organisations, please read on because there is a disturbing fact that only a small percentage of Phil and Rogue Rocket's audience seem to be aware of and even fewer who care.
      Right now there are regular sponsorship spots being given to Plarium and their games on the Phil DeFranco show. Plarium is a subsidiary of Aristocrat Leisure Limited, which is a gambling machine manufacturer. They are the second largest manufacturer of slot machines in the world and in 2017 they spent around $1.4 billion acquiring Plarium and Big Fish Games. In short, Phil is regularly promoting gambling companies that are currently being investigated and even facing class action lawsuits and a mountain of scrutiny for unscrupulous and grossly unethical business practices.
      If you or your team vetted that company you should have encountered a wealth of info highlighting why there are concerns raised about their dealings and products. From gameplay and pay2win algorithms modeled almost exactly like slot machines (I'll repeat this for emphasis: Plarium was acquired in 2017 by Aristocrat Leisure Limited: literally a gambling machine manufacturer that get the bulk of their revenue from half-demented retirees and gambling addicts pissing away pensions on rigged machines in dark corners of casinos), to entirely fake "gameplay" trailers which are being marketed largely at children, to the actual numbers ie. average spend per user and daily revenue from in game transactions being huge red flags about the nature of these games and how they operate.
      The fallout of their demonstrably criminal misconduct is millions of people with severe addictions that have lead to tens of thousands of cases of financial hardship and they are subject to none of the regulations that gambling operators have to be compliant with despite the games being nothing more than rebranded slot machines with a powerful social hook.
      In the same breath that you would espouse integrity and ethical business dealings as being tenets your company hold essential, you promote morally bankrupt developers of the equivalent of digital crack and you personally contribute to harm and issues with addiction for millions of often young or vulnerable users.
      It's pretty disgusting that this continues to be a thing. I ask those of you reading this who are actually informed on this problem and know of what I speak, to thumb this up or copy paste it until there's some sort of explanation or Plarium is no longer used as a sponsor. It's something they should be doing an exposé on - not taking cheques from to promote companies that exploit life-destroying addictions.
      Some links with info, some directly related and others highlighting some of the issues that are arising with these games and how they operate:

      00:06 I've been putting off watching this episode. I ignored social media post. After watching the clip on instagram. I could get salty about why others and not some. Why here and Now but not then and There. It doesn't matter. It all boils down to: Looking out for each other. Basically! Be a friend. Pass a positive word to a stranger. Spread the good. What would it hurt for you to do so?

    The news and media only talk about the protesters being violent, but theres videos of the police opening markets to get people inside it and then burning it down, police shooting outside of schools, attacking children, the protests arent all violent, most are families trying to support their elders on getting their pensions, public transport being illegaly expensive leading children to not be able to get to school, women fighting for their rights (or more like, protesting agaisnt the numerous cases of r*pe and killing, also called Feminicides), theres videos of military police going agaisnt the government and protecting people from the actual police. Latin awards winner singer Mon Laferte from Chile protesting the same way as her fellow feminisnt protesters, at the Latin Grammy Awards and the backlash she got from it. President Piñeda declaring "war to chile".

    Thanks for covering the Chile story. it seems nobody wanted to when it first broke out. quick follow ups: te "rubber bullets" turned out to be rubber coated with a filling made of various ferrous materials, including lead. there are a record of citizens that have lost partial or complete sight due to the mismanagement of riot police utilizing excesive force. even after a month, there are no results as to whom burned the metro stations,yet it took them days to find who threw a molotov cocktail to a police office ( general perception of the burnt metro station is that its a hoax) if you want unbiased chilean news, contact FastcheckCL on twitter or instagram.

    Miley Cyrus worded that wrongfully. I believe she was talking about pan/bisexuals sometimes choosing to stay away from men because of one bad experience.
    I'm pan. I said I was gay for 3 years, because the only men I had been with had hurt me really bad. With time I realised that I was still Bi.

    Hey! I came for simplynailogical, stayed because of Pewds thumbnails and I find myself watching you talking about the protests on my country, this is amazing. I knew about you and your videos, but I never thought you would be interested in this... personally, I’m not supporting this protests, they are just violence and thefts, nothing beauty about this... our subway is working again with a few closed stations, but still closing 3 hours early than usual, leaving thousands of people without a comfortable and easy access transportation... they are taking buses out of streets early too, so is imposible to transporte yourself after 10 PM without having to use Uber or a similar app... I couldn’t go to classes in more than a month now and this is my last year (already paid the whole year, no student loan needed) :/, now the institute is changing the class schedule and now I’m gonna miss my Korean lesson (that I already paid for) thanks to that change... with this “revolution” they are just hurting people of low/medium class. Rich people? They are not having any problem.... and I don’t wanna even mention the economic problem that came with this... I mean, the chicken store that is on my neighborhood just raised their prices!!! No more cheaper chicken or french fries “a luca” now they are charging me luca 400... Unbelievable....

    Please continue the story, awful things have been happening, just go to Instagram and all you'll see . More than 200 people have eye injuries due to police brutality, some have even lost both eyes. And not only that, there are complaints agains police and military about rape, torture and unlawful detentions. People being taken from their homes without warrants, you can even find videos of this on instagram and facebook. I would love for you to cover more of this, since there is not only a social crisis in Chile, but a human rights one as well.

    Oh god thank you for talking about Chile, sadly the situation here is now worse, our "president" still thinks he is at war. While we no longer have an state of emergency or military forces on the streets our people have suffer so much damages there are violations of the human rights people are getting shot in peaceful protest, been arrested for no reason or for being near a protest, girls getting shot by "pellet guns" more like 12-bore shotguns inside there schools it's just unmeasured violence by the police. No substantial change has been proposed by the government.

  • Gabrielle Breton

    This is my opinion as a bisexual, who spends the majority of her free time running a community message board on the topic of Bisexuality and the other multi-sexual identities like Pansexuality.
    One of the most pervasive myths about the multisexual identities is that we aren't really gay, we are promiscuous and we can flip a switch to "Go straight again" whenever wanted. Regardless of whomever we have as a partner we are always, always LGBTQ+. Our "gayness" is not negated by who we are dating. People have this constant assumption that we are just a serious of straight phases and gay phases and they we pick a phase to stay in all based around essentially who we are dating long-term or who we marry-thus erasing our identity and driving us all bananas. Women are essentially always seen to be "experimenting" until we inevitably find "the right man", bisexual/or multisexual men are erased by the assumption that they are actually gay, and the non-binary community is either erased completely or treated according to however the statement maker assumes their gender.

    So does a celebrity who has been credited with popularizing pansexuality in the mainstream "confirming" the exact thing we all constantly struggle against in terms of erasure on a daily basis hurt us as a community? Yeah, for the record quite a lot. Not very impressed, not very happy with it and also not particularly surprised either.
    Miley herself has actually had previous very negative impacts on the community by asserting that Bisexuality specifically excluded the trans-community to the mainstream public in a misguided attempt to define Pansexuality. Pansexuality is a specific statement referring to attraction to all genders. Bisexuality is a spectrum essentially meaning attraction to genders like and unlike my own or 2 or more genders this can be seen in multiple inter-community works such as in the flag design as explained by it's creator in the late 90's and in 1990 with the San Francisco Bay Area publication anything that moves, specifically an entry called the "Bisexual manifesto".

    That said Phillip hit the nail on the head. If you or someone you like it whatever gets banned by China... So what?
    Stick to your audience and your following it fan base.
    If you subscribe to the Chinese mindset or system then sure, play nice and don't talk about controversial shit you don't know anything about with exception of bias talking points on social media....
    So yea, support Philly. Stick to your guns folks and don't worry about the Chinese money or audience.... There is a whole other 7billion people on the planet you can pander to.

    I have some advice for those in the comments... don't offer your ear to friends that might be suicidal if you can't hold up to your word.
    I have been through mental system for 29 years and while a therapist is helpful; actual people in your life are way more helpful with suicidal thoughts. Don't trust the mental health depts. They treat you like a prisoner if you are admitted for suicidal thoughts.
    However more recently every single 1 of my friends and family all ignored me when I was upfront about my suicidal thoughts and blew me off. Then started telling me about their issues because in a slap to reality I am a therapist to these people and they never return the favor.
    So be genuine because all you do is push that person more to the edge and makes them never want to talk again.
    As for the suicide hotline. Its garbage. Do research on it.

    To be honest, if you start fires, break public property and/or throw it on subway lines, potentially endangering the subway passengers - then yes, you are most likely a criminal under most countries' laws.

    Please guys, don´t let this comment get lost.
    David Veloso Codosedo is a chilean soldier, who refused an order to repress the people, he threw his rifle to the ground and told his comanding officer that he would not be used to repress and kill his fellow humans, he enlisted to defend his country, not to be used to further the political and economic agenda of president Piñera and his many MANY family members working in the goverment.
    The military court just denied his petition.

    right now, there is evidence of many murders within the potests, corpses of protesters being thrown after getting shot, military and police officers destroying cellphones so they would not be recorded, police officers stealing stuff while the riots and looting are taking place.

    As an LGBT person, I make jokes all the time that, out of context, misrepresent the bisexual experience. Things like, “I’m only half gay,” or, “Men are trash. Date women.” I think it’s funny but I totally understand how people could misconstrue it - especially if those people are undereducated on what it means to be bisexual or queer. It could potentially confuse someone who doesn’t already understand, and therefore, I’m pretty mindful of my audience when I make a joke like that. I think Miley knows full well that no one chooses to be gay, and she was lampshading her own recent relationship experience while trying to make her friend laugh. But not everybody on the livestream knew it was a joke. But we all hopefully learned and grew from it and now we know that people don’t chose to like who they like. Thanks Miley

    On the Chile situation... I worked out that if the average monthly salary there is around 800 US dollars, and the cost of one subway trip is about 1.50... that compared to bus and train fares in Ireland and the UK, we actually pay more to travel relative to how much we earn in this part of the world. I'm all for public protests for a better quality of life, I just think this is very interesting. I'm sure there's a lot more to it than that, but it's worth thinking about these things and cost of living in general. Wealth distribution should be part of the Governments job, it should be illegal for an individual to have a personal wealth exceeding say 20 million us/euro/pound (they are almost all worth the same now anyway). Company and company assets, and details like that should be worked out, but if this was a system put in place globally, think of all the lives you could enrich, all the public projects you could build, society would progress so much faster and be better for everyone, and the lives of the rich wouldn't change that much- oh no, they might not be able to own more than 1 mansion and a private jet, woe is them.

    Im from Chile and I think you missed something very important: The military and the police are abusing innocent people, using fire arms with bullets that arent leatle but they still causes large amount of damage. They are aming to the head and lots of innocent people are loosing their site because of this... they are killing us and taking away our freedom, this is because we arent allowed to go out at a certain time of the day because of the “toque de queda”... the same tactic used by pinochet (the dictator who murdered and tortured people because they were “traitors”) Now they are investigating if there was a torture site in one of the closed subway stattions runned by the millitary because some people said they were tortured there. The INDH said they found some wierd things that may lead that this claims are real, but thats not all... the INDH confirmed that the millitary crucified people in “Peñalolen”. There are tons and tons of video in social media prooving how police and the millitary are abusing their power with innocent civilians. PLEASE SPREAD THIS SITUATION ALL AROUND THE WORLD, THEY ARE VIOLATING OUR HUMAN RIGHTS AND WE DONT WANT MORE PEOPLE DYING! If you want to see some of this videos you can look them up in twitter with the hashtag #estopasaenchile
