I'm amazed you are posting this kind of patronising rubbish, James James. He is doing it, like many other so-called 'you-tube stars' to build up his profile ratings, which in case you don't know means increased income for him.

For sure, and that is a reasonable criticism, ... up to a point.

Both he and they stand to make a lot of money, ... not forcibly by exploiting anyone though.

It could be seen either way, ... on the one hand they might be considered by some to be contributing to, and to be encouraging, the huge rise in recent years in excessive personal acquisition and consumption, which the virus has done so much to draw attention to, and to help to expose and counter.

On the other hand, their harmless gifts might be seen as being harmless and welcome additional and generous anti virus morale boosters,... and some of which could be shared and positively repurposed.

I don't think even you believe that, james. From the little I know of you via your posts you are definitely not one who would support those who make money out of the vulnerable, which it is. It isn't cool. There were posters who used to encourage tramps to fight and laugh their heads off, paying the winner enough for a couple of drinks. These kids are often very wealthy to the point they are unemployable. The get out clause is for Daddy to drop a million on youtube and make them modern day saints and sure enough, soon enough, they've got a few million subscribers and are suddenly self-sufficient without a clue what to do except pretend they care about the handchosen few who have less. All the time getting richer for doing so themselves. There's plenty of them out there.

Here's another one:

Complete self-serving patronising drivel.
