Responds to critics

Makes Statement

Kjellberg responds to online commenters who criticized his earnings, by recounting his humble beginnings, working at a hot dog stand after dropping out of college and making YouTube videos in his spare time.

The fact that I could make videos was so much important to me than doing a job that was sort of less prestigious….Money is the topic I purposely tried to avoid for the five years I’ve been making videos, because I just feel like it’s not important to anyone. I just want to make entertaining videos. Don’t get me wrong, though, I don’t hate money. I’m not going to pretend it doesn’t matter to me, because it matters to everyone…I think that’s what cool about YouTube. Anyone can do this. I do work a tremendous amount of work. Ask my girlfriend. And if you worked this hard, you could do it too.

Lets Talk About Money.
