JiDion, a well-known content producer, recently discussed his success as a streamer and apologised to his fans and followers for some of his major errors, most notably his contentious sponsorship agreements. JiDion stated of his ascent to fame and wealth, “I sold out.” “That thing truly screwed me up.”
The YouTuber has come under criticism ever since the streamer gained popularity after a confrontation with Pokimane that was made public. JiDion orchestrated hate raids against Pokimane, which led to a lengthy suspension from Twitch. The content creators subsequently made amends and even began collaborating on a project, but Pokimane later spoke about how the experience affected her mental health. Pokimane remarked in a webcast, “When all the JiDion internet hate stuff happened, I low-key slipped into a funk. I’ve been counting my steps for the past two months, which I can now say with humour.
Why JiDion Feels Like He Sold Out?
JiDion’s realisation that at some time in the recent past, he started working for his sponsors instead of himself and his following, appears to have occurred when the NFL asked him to make a TikTok video he was working on more “family friendly.” JiDion has frequently faced criticism from fans for accepting deals that seemed odd or even slightly controversial. The content creator admits, “I sold out”.
JiDion said, “It’s unfortunate because I only just recently basically understood I sold out. I’m valuing money and I’m taking the easy road above everything. “I believe it to be the most tragic aspect of it. I mean, I couldn’t even see that I was betraying my principles.
Stardom brought sponsors with it. JiDion asserts, “I don’t think I was ever expected to be the centre of attention. I feel like it put a spotlight on my channel where they that don’t even fuck with me would look at my shit, too.” He “sold out” in order to appease everyone, including sponsors, because his recent notoriety “shined a light that like was too fucking bright,” enticing a type of scrutiny that “I never wanted to be under.” That s**t totally screwed me over.
JiDion remarked on a stream, “When you have people looking at you who truly want to see you fail and individuals who don’t have your best interests at heart, it changes you. It impacts you,
Jidion continued, saying that his group was intended to be “us versus the world,” but that he had “joined the world,” and that his only goal was to “create the finest content ever.” On the other side, the streamer pledged to “return to basics.” The video producer appears to have taken a lesson from his altercation with Pokimane. JiDion pledged to refrain from exceeding any bounds or going far in the future. “At the end of the day, I won’t ever act in a manner that violates my morals. We’re going to have a good time if it doesn’t violate my principles and everything.
