The man who plays Boogie2988 on YouTube, Steven Williams, was in a Twitter argument with someone and he threatened to kill himself. The person reading this threat called the authorities who in turn performed a welfare check on Boogie2988. There was a knock on the door and when he answered it, he found police, firemen, and paramedics at his front door.
Boogie2988 was able to talk his way out of it. Remember, he talks for a living.
What’s even more irresponsible than threating to kill yourself to a random stranger on Twitter? Going on Twitch shortly after the welfare check to vent about it. That’s what Boogie2988 did.
Boogie2988’s Twitch streams are even harder to watch than his YouTube videos are. People in the chat are able to interrupt him by triggering sound effects. These include, “You’ve got to get paid to get laid you’all.” and “Welcome to the sub club.” Also, people can communicate with him by giving him money and having their text read on the stream with a creepy female robot voice.
He doesn’t seem to have any control over these things. In fact, you could probably say that about everything about Boogie2988, he doesn’t seem to have any control over anything. He had to get gastric bypass surgery to force him to eat less and lose weight.
People in the chat were telling him to hire someone to take over his social media accounts, mainly Twitter. Boogie2988 said over and over that’s not possible. Why he said that I don’t know. It sounded like sound advice, especially considering that we’re supposed to believe communicating on Twitter is giving Boogie2988 suicidal tendencies.
Suicidal tendencies as in the propensity to take your own life, not the band from the 1980s.
My advice to Boogie2988
If I were in a position to lend advice to Boogie2988, I’d encourage him to hire someone to take over his Twitter account. If interacting on Twitter gives him suicidal tendencies, I think it’s a sign he needs to step back. I’d also encourage him to stop streaming on Twitch. I thought Twitch was a service so people can watch you play video games. That’s not what his Twitch channel seems to be about. It’s about people giving him money in small-dollar increments.
I’d encourage him to put more work in his YouTube videos. They’ve gotten to the point were they’re unwatchable. He puts his face very close to the camera, making his videos uncomfortable to watch. I’d also redecorate the room he makes videos in so it doesn’t look like a 12-year-old boy’s bedroom.
If exercise felt good, they wouldn’t call it exercise
I’d also encourage him to work harder at losing weight. According to him, he hasn’t lost weight in months. I think he expected the surgery to do all the work for him. It’s been a year now since his surgery. Whatever the surgery was able to do for him, it’s probably already done it. He now has to concentrate on working what he can do to lose weight like a normal person with diet and exercise. When he tries to exercise, he claims it hurts too much. That’s true for everyone, especially when they get older.
If he began working hard at losing weight, he’d be able to incorporate it in his YouTube videos. He would then have content worth watching.
It would also help Boogie2988 if he stopped lying. He’s not good at it. He’s constantly contradicting himself. New lies do not mesh well with past lies. If you don’t lie, you don’t have to have a good memory. I don’t think Boogie2988 has a very good memory.
