So because you don't like it you think it shouldn't exist. That's really immature. Besides, Hasbro had no right to take down Davey's videos because they were PARODIES, ergo, they were under fair use. If you cheer for a company who takes advantage of YouTube's broken copyright system because they took down a video you disliked, it gives them incentive to do it to any video they please, and no one wins there.

I guess what I'm trying to say is, it's fine if you didn't like Davey's content, but don't go around saying "he got what he deserved". That's like saying "I didn't like the way your face looked, so I'm glad someone took a shotgun and erased that ugly mug of yours". Bit of a hyperbole there but you get the point. But you're still going to think you're right so let's look at this from a different angle.

Let's suppose people find your content offensive for whatever reason (doesn't have to be a good one). Suddenly, Hasbro takes down all your content. This isn't unusual since Hasbro has been known to do this on multiple occasions, but what makes this different is people's reaction. You begin seeing comments saying that "you deserved what you got" and "you're nothing but trash". You wouldn't like that very much, would you? So why would you want someone else to go through that experience?

That example might be a bit cliche, but it got the point across. The point being that Hasbro has no right to take down anyone's content (especially if it fits under fair use) and no one should cheer when someone's content is taken down. I guess this is the point where I say "but you're entitled to your own opinion" or "but that's just my opinion" because saying what I really think would make me look like an asshole. But after some thought, I came to realize that I don't care if I end up looking like a asshole. So here's what I really think. If you still believe that Davey got what he deserved, not only are you an idiot, but an asshole.

"Why am I an idiot?" you may ask. Just look real close at the writing I've provided above and you'll see why. "So why am I an asshole?" you may also ask. Well to paraphrase what I wrote last time I was on this page "to wish someone harm and be glad when that harm comes to pass makes you a terrible person". Hasbro was wrong to take down Davey's videos, just as you were wrong in believing Davey deserved to have his content removed. Don't think I'm just attacking you, this goes to anyone who thinks what Hasbro did was right. Well, I'm done venting. I expect either a lengthy reply, a short insult, or no rely (which is ideal). Later.

P.S.  I case it wasn't obvious, this is directed at you XD-385. I'm only adding this because it seems that you've made it difficult for me to actually reply to your comment. If you didn't want confrontation you should have thought before you typed.

Okay, this has to be said. If you think that Mister Davie deserved to get attack by Hasbro and you're glad about it, you're an idiot. He made parodies, meaning that Hasbro had no legal right to take down any of his videos. If you don't like them then that's fine, but to wish him harm and be glad when that harm comes to pass makes you a terrible person. Honestly, I've read some of these hate comments and it seems like they have no idea what they're talking about. By the way, if you reply writing something along the lines of "he made a cute kid's show violent and that's a no no" don't bother. It's called "shock humor" for a reason.

You would've laughed if that happened and you know it. Besides that whole "he made a cute kid's show violent and that's a no no" isn't the problem here, but as I've already pointed that out above, I don't see a reason to repeat myself.


And yes, I know what shock humor is. And it's one of the biggest problems with adult animation in this day and age. Not because of what it is, but because it's practically what every adult cartoon that comes out these days is all about. When shock humor is all something has, it starts failing to shock or amuse because it never lets up. It quickly stops being either funny or shocking and ends up being pathetic. It's so common and so prolific that it has become essentially the lowest common denominator of adult animations and it is utterly depressing that it's even making its way into freelance internet animations as well. Standards for adult animation have been at an all-time low for a good long while and there's no sign of them getting any higher. And as an adult, I find that discouraging. People are supposed to get more refined in their tastes as they age, not less. 


Most adult cartoons that rely solely on shock humor are not well received and the only way Davey's animations managed to draw ample attention was because the animations were about My Little Pony and word circled about it due to sheer infamy. The same infamy that ultimately drew Hasbro's attention and wiped his Youtube account clean. And it's still just as pathetic as all the others. The only way it would've been even more shameful is if they contained gratuitous amounts of sex or genitalia shots. If shock humor is the only selling point something has, it's probably not worth watching. That's why South Park has been a success since day 1. It has a purpose besides just shock humor. I would've at least respected these if they were strictly straight faced and tried to avoid being humorous for the sake of showing something with actual depth, perhaps a parody of Game of Thrones or even Breaking Bad, but then again, not just anyone can animate something meaningful and Davey sure isn't convincing me that he's capable of such an endeavor.


There's really nothing left for me to add to this and I have no intention of ever coming back here. Davey's gone, Hasbro did what needed to be done, and I'm satisfied knowing it finally happened. Hopefully he learned something from it and uses his skills for something with a bit more substance in the future. Goodbye.
