They stole $1.7 million

The Game Theorists

År siden

In November 2018, Defy Media shut down without any notice. They laid off their workers without warning and have held ransom the money earned by the NOpost Creators who were in their network. I was one of those Creators. Defy was my former employer and the multichannel network that represented Game Theory, Film Theory, and GTLive - EVERYTHING. We trusted them to help us and for that we and 49 other Creators in their network collectively lost 1.7 MILLION DOLLARS. Money that was owed to us, EARNED by us, and taken by DEFY. Today, the fate of that money rests in the hands of a bank, Ally Bank, who will decide the people who get their money back and those who are out of luck. After trying other methods of solving the situation, nothing has worked, so at this point we have no choice but to make our fight public. Steph and I have personally been going out of pocket to try and get everyone's money back, but to improve your chances, we need your help.
This is my story of what happened. And this is what we all can do to help ensure no other Creator, large or small, has their money stolen from them ever again.

Bruh MatPat does have a real job, but as an entertainer. He’s not much different than athletes or actors, he works hard to create good content that people will enjoy, so by saying he doesn’t have a real job, you’re saying actors and athletes and even musicians don’t have a “real” job (btw if ur just tryna be toxic, there are thousands of comments on this video, and probably nobody will even see this anyway)

@Panzer Bear producing tangible products and services that are actually useful is a real job. There are too many "jobs" where their income relies heavily on advertising.

This IS a real job, it’s one of the best actually. Pewdiepie has over 10 million dollars and he earned probably 90% of that from being a content creator.

Why did that one part act like adding more and more channels to an MCN isn't a 100% positive stat? Total views seem like a decent way to start a meeting when your cut is based on ad revenue from said views. Mat Pat seems off on this topic, as if he didn't know the deal when he signed up for it.
