That’s what his GooTube video says.
And so does 4chan.
But Goople, the giant US advertising company which owns it, doesn’t agree.
By way of protest, 4chan declared yesterday YouTube Porn Day.
“To take vengeance for the apparent removal of the popular YouTube account of Lukeywes1234, 4chan called on its members to upload hidden porn onto the site,” says the Guardian.
Lukeywes1234 is an eight-year-old Nintendo freek who “scored viral success with his hilarious videos,” says the story, going on >>>
The videos attracted attention due to his very direct, sometimes vulgar, language. Members of the 4chan forum found the hilarious videos and gave them a broader audience on their message board, referred to as “/b/”.
“In the original and now deleted video Lukeywes1234 begged for 50 subscribers by February,” says the story, adding:
“Within a few hours, several thousand were following him, and praising him and declaring him”awesome”. Lots of fan material is still online, as teenagers obviously sympathised with Lukeywes1234.”
