Student perspectives on Youtube drama

Songjun Na

Even the best of friends can be split apart by drama. Depending on the circumstance, emotions can bubble over and explode into a public display of anger or disappointment. This kind of demonstration tends to be more likely for Youtubers, because of their presence on social media. But, the more views a video has, the more money a Youtuber can make from advertising revenue. Are Youtubers really showing their true emotions when they release diss tracks, or are they just publishing something dramatic for the sake of making money? Check out the video below to see what MVHS students think of this question of motives.
