what happened to clevver & why i had already left

  • Published: 11 November 2018

    Well... it has been a WEEK if i've ever seen one. This was not really the plan I had for my first video back after a 2.5 year hiatus but HERE WE ARE.

    If you haven't already, please SUBSCRIBE to my channel (you know, because i'm unemployed now.) https://t.co/VngHLZnqtG

    Thank you all for the support during this crazy time and of course throughout the years. None of us would be here without you and I still have hope that the Clevver brand will LIVE ON!

    I know a lot of you are confused so I hope this video gives you a bit more context. I also truly hope no one mistakes my sarcasm and humor in this video for not caring about the situation or being insensitive about how many people this situation has affected. Please understand that sometimes when things get SO bad... there's really no other way to cope then to find the humor in even the darkest of times (at least for me). I love and support everyone who lost their job this past week and wish them nothing but the best in the future because if there's one thing DEFY did right, it's bring together some amazingly talented human beings that have been such an important part of my life these last 6.5 years.

    As I said in the video, the future of Clevver, Smosh, and the other properties is still uncertain though everyone is remaining hopeful that they will find new homes soon!

      Lily Marston only suggestion I have is leaving your written blurbs up slightly longer. It was hard for me to keep up, I had to continuously pause the video to keep up with your q/a. Otherwise, I can’t wait to see what type of content you come up with!

                    Theory.. the lease in the LA area was too expensive to renew. So defy let everyone go to raise enough money to the company itself to renew their location and hire only the people they needed. 🤔 I only think so because the same thing happened to me, at the same time, in the same area. Again just a theory..😂

                                                  I wish their was more justice and awareness brought to what happened to the late Claire Wineland. She made content as she was literally dying & they still had no mount of human decency & put her through so much stress during her last years. This reminded me of that because you said the content you would have made on your personal youtube channels money would have went to defy. But in Claire’s case she was mislead and taken advantage of.
