    I thought it was a satire video making fun of youtube game channels like that, the joke being a little kid playing the role.

    But yeah, he has his own channel....

    That's fucked up.

    The parents are the bigger problem then the kids for this kind of monetization.

    If only there were some way to control what your kids can access on a phone... some kind of... option... or even, a parenting skill... I guess that's impossible though. Better have Mommy Government solve the problem.

    The kids with bad parents deserve protection too.

    You could apply that line of thinking to anything, from hamburgers to homework. I'd rather keep government out of all this shit.

    Well we need a way of getting big corporations to cool it with the gambling practices, and I doubt asking nicely for them to ignore the potential $$$ or call for boycotting super popular games is going to work.

    Good goy good. Gotta learn the dopamine hit response to gambling early on.

    But to be serious, this is fucked up on so many levels.

    Normally I'd agree. But believe me when I tell you: that Bill that Hawley is tabling will not be as it appears. That bastard is up to something. He's been up to something for quite a while.

    If you're gonna drag fucking Breitbart into this, we've got nothing more to say to each other. You know better than that shit, or you should, at any rate.
