As BlastphamousHD TV (formerly) and BlastphamousHD TV 2 are primarily reaction channels, they are set up accordingly with the majority of their content in response to various videos on YouTube or WorldstarHipHop. On some occasions, these videos have had to be reduced to YouTube's standard 15-minute limit as he monetizes them and gets copyright notices as a result. Commenters have repeatedly pointed out that his videos increase by the duration of the original video, which is refuted by many who argue that the extra time is spent adding content to the video for him to pause. He has been praised for this method of reaction. His original intro was "What it is BHD Army, it is ya boy Blastphamous H Dizzle". According to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHO_b__GnIE, it is revealed he is a vegan.
Aside from reactions, Barnett also released storytime videos, in which he describes various events in his early life about getting embarrassed, raped, humorous moments, and how he began to love greasing his bald, waxed head. He and his friends formerly produced skits occasionally, with one example being Buy My Mixtape.......OR ELSE! ( A Real American Horror Story). On his gaming channel, he plays a plethora of video games, such as Overwatch, Five Nights At Freddy's, Grand Theft Auto V, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and many others, but with little to no original content added.
On October 27, 2016, Barnett posted i Google Myself.....CANT BELIEVE THEY WROTE THIS!!, in which Barnett googles "BlastphamousHD wiki" with his Wikitubia page as the first result. He gives praise to anonymous writers who covered his VidCon turmoil, saying "Whoever wrote this is immediately my b*tch now" and that "Y'all are awesome, bro." He also revealed in this video, that he hasn't seen his youngest sibling in years, because of her being on drugs.
On August 12, 2017, Barnett a video called "GOOGLING MYSELF!! OUR ACTUAL NET WORTH." in which he and Doctor J encountered Wikitubia's page again when he was interested in his net worth. He went on to say while reading the About section, "whoever wrote this was a fan," but immediately regretted it after reading the line saying he was bullied.
On a GTA V gameplay, he revealed that he has aquaphobia. Apparently, when he was 11 years old, he was watching the Discovery Channel. There was a special airing on Squids on Discovery Channel. The people on TV wanted to show what a giant squid looked like up close. "A GIANT SQUID EYE WENT ACROSS THE SCREEN," he said. It scarred him for life. He also fell off a cruise ship when he was 6 years old, which also scared him because what he saw underwater is what he describes as "blue emptiness". Luckily people got him out, but he doesn't remember how.
On April 22, 2018, Barnett's main reaction channel, BlastphamousHD TV, was terminated for violating terms of service. However, he continues to upload on his gaming channel and second reaction channel, which has now become his new main channel. Most of his new videos on the second reaction channel are mainly Family Guy Try Not To Laugh Challenges, in which Barnett has become subject to criticism to by viewers due to his forced laughs, overreactions, and lack of variety. Barnett however, occasionally reuploads some of his old videos from his past channel. However, many have felt that the quality of his reaction videos dropped significantly after his main channel was terminated, and that he doesn't show as much genuineness in his reaction videos as he used to.
Most of Barnett's old reaction videos have been re-uploaded by either BlastphamousHD Archive or KyleYT. CMBgamer2018 made a whole playlist of BHD's Try not to laugh Gumball Edition.
Formerly, Barnett occasionally would be joined by some of his friends and family to react to videos with, such as Dr. J & The Women (Randy Jackson), ChavezzSlovakia (Chavezz), and his brother, KT-TV. However, numerous life events and various falling outs have led to the end of the friendships with his friends, with the exception of Randy who simply moved away. His brother has made numerous appearances in certain videos and Randy has recently returned!
BlastphamousHD TV had 2.4 Million Subs before it was deleted.
Try Not To Laugh Challenge
Part of BlastphamousHD TV's reaction content is Try Not To x Challenges, in which x is substituted for Laugh, Get Scared, or more rarely Just Wait.
However, in May 2016, Barnett posted a challenge for his subscribers to remix his videos and intentionally take them out of context. The challenge is over, but many persisted and gave him the videos long after in spite of this. Notable subscribers included Jagged Salad, SMG4, and Bownsir.
In March 2016, YouTuber PsiSyndicate attacked Barnett for his comments, including his poor residency and stereotypical lifestyle. Soon after, Psi came under fire when Barnett's fans prompted a witch hunt. The two YouTubers posted videos in response and supposedly settled it out on DramaAlert.
At VidCon 2016, minnesotaboyy, a lesser-known propagandist YouTuber, attacked Barnett for the things he said prior to the event. Minnesotaboyy took place in a competition in which the winner would win $300, and dropped out, prompting Barnett to comment that "if you're going to join this, and say that you are the best, and everyone else sucks, and complain that you're poor, then why drop out?" Minnesotaboyy responded with a death threat to Barnett and his family, which he later fell back on when Barnett strategically chose to wait for his arrival at the event.
Also, minnesottaboy even made a video on why BlastphamousHD TV was terminated. He was responsible for theft, getting him flagged, and terminated.
In 2017, Barnett accused the police of "almost trying to shoot his black butt" during what actually turned out to be a routine traffic stop, wherein little to no real action was actually taken against him, and constantly disparaged and railed against the police, and was only really asked for his license. In one of his vlogs, he revealed that Turner EST banned him from making anymore TAWOGB videos. Many were taken down, but a few were reuploaded by CMBgamer 2018 TV, which were also banned.
Barnett and commentary YouTuber Pyrocynical were involved in some short-lived drama when Pyro tweeted out about being blocked from Barnett. In response, Barnett stated that Pyrocynical is a wuss, and criticized his content. Pyrocynical fired back by stating that Barnett steals thumbnails. Another YouTuber, LtCorbis criticizes Barnett for stealing thumbnails, to which he responded by calling her a LeafyIsHere clone.
On April 22, 2018, Barnett's main channel, the BlastphamousHD TV account, was terminated for "violating YouTube's Community Guidelines". Many people have not really recognized it being terminated nor did many make a video on it. However, he still uploads on one of his other accounts, 'BlastphamousHD TV2' and also still uploads on his Gaming channel, 'BlastphamousHD Gaming'.
