Well now I know why I get sick more often since no one hugs me, aside from my parents twice a year. One hug on my birthday and one on Christmas... oh the life of a child with emotionally distant parents.
I (and I'm sure many others as well) are wondering how does he make a living. Surely he must be working somehow to earn enough money to make a living! Looks like he's given up on YouTube, so no income from that source.
Charlie hi!!! I’ve been following your channel since I was about 12 and now I am 21. I remember when you dyed your hair red and wrote that song with many instruments, I used to watch it once a day for 3 months ! The first video I remember was when you drank ketchup... Anyway I miss your videos they’re very good. Especially this video , hugs are the best!
Sending you many hugs 🤗
When I think of YouTube Vlogger, the only name that always pops in my mind is charlieissocoollike/Charlie Mcdonnell. I still want to see you once again on your vlog before I die. One of the wishes I still want to be granted.
hey charlie when you get the email about this comment I just want you to know that youtube is ass. *literall ass* and I hope you know that you are WAY MORE than your channel and I hope you're relaxing with a uke somewhere not giving a damn much love from 2008 to now and beyond <3
Im doing preparations for the Extarnal Evaluation from English in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Test to finish the Primary school) and at the section called "Reading" theres a text about you (how you started out n stuff) lol
I’ve been there since 2008 and I haven’t forgotten. He’s still reaching people. Whether he’s moved on from YouTube or not, he’s done a lot for a lot of people and he’s a very smart guy so he’ll be fine
I just wish Charlie would get the help he needs and be okay, even if it means going offline forever. I remember when I was little I wrote an essay about how he was my idol because he had picked up multiple instruments, focused on his love of science, and was a very wholesome person. I still look up to him to this day, but I really want him to stabilize.
I havent seen your videos in awhile!!! I am happy to see you doing good, but you are getting a little out of shape O.O you should go to the gym, that can help you a lot with anxiety and depression! :) it can improve your life greatly, i hope you see this so it can help! Cheers!
KHCoasterKid while I think that what he did was bad, I don’t think it was THAT bad and ultimately he was young. Nobody is perfect. Everybody makes mistakes. None of what he did was illegal and I think people are artificially inflating it to a level which it is not.
Ken Dugan I don't have a self-righteous heart, it's just he knew exactly what he was doing and he did it with several women. He actively manipulated and pressured women into having sex with him. Even though he apologised for it and admitted how wrong it was, once you know someone is capable of doing such a thing then it really changes how you see them.
This channel has become much more watered down, it no longer feels personal. It used to feel like you were looking into his life, in his fun science episode on the moon, he talked about the reason for making the video.
I will no longer be watching the channel due to this.
Charlie, I've followed you for years and years and years. I remember you painting your body purple, I remember you teaching how to make tea and I remember being inspired to making videos ten years ago. But I'm not in a place mentally where I can make videos. And although you don't know who I am. I disappoint myself everytime I see your name in my list of people that I'm subscribed to. So I'll be back one day, the day that I'm ready to make videos again. Whenever that'll be... Only time will tell. <3
I used to watch Charlie’s videos back when I was only 11 years old.. He was the first YouTuber I ever watched and he seriously inspired me to make videos of my own. I have always wanted to express myself in this way and just wanted to say thank you for making videos...
I’m dying bc I started watching you when you did challenge Charlie n I was only like 10. Now I’m 17 almost 18 and these videos have matured the same time as I have and it’s late I should stop talking this deep
