―justdestiny's intro

Richard Dier (born: May 16, 1998 (1998-05-16) [age 21]) better known online as Destiny (formerly justdestiny), is an American YouTuber who uploads satire content, comedy and videos criticising and roasting other YouTube channel's content.

Content

Justdestiny uploads satire content, comedy, and videos criticising other YouTube channels. He also publishes videos of interviews from the Dr. Phil show and editing in meme-like reactions for comedic effect. In addition to Dr. Phil videos, his subscribers enjoy his commentary on web culture personalities like gamer girls, musical.ly stars and more.

YouTube History

Back in January 26 2014, he launched his YouTube channel. He originally wanted to be a gaming type channel, and what got him into YouTube was by watching other gamers like PewDiePie and Markiplier. A bunch of other people do what they do: Play video games, but specifically, there was a game called "Destiny". Years ago, on his early days of his channel, he used to upload videos of him playing that game.

He isn't really sure why he has transitioned over to being a commentator, but he believes that it was a mix of him wanting to be a voice actor and the fact that people didn't need to use a camera for commentating. He blew up in the beginning of 2018 in subscribers and views.

Controversy

Feud with LtCobra

On January 19, 2019, LtCobra made a video titled "The Dark Side Of JustDestiny" which critiqued him for using minors in his thumbnails to attract views. This resulted in justdestiny copyright striking the video to take it down after recieving hate from LtCobra's fans and even filed a cease and desist letter. This all sparked the drama and resulted in many YouTubers making response videos to justdestiny. A few of these include: Combat Wombat, Bowblax and even PewDiePie. During the heat of the drama, justdestiny deleted his videos which people viewed as 'creepy' evidenced by him losing millions of views on his Socialblade and changed the thumbnails of some of his videos. After going on DramaAlert to clear his name, justdestiny made a now-privated video titled "Mob mentality" after his interview with Keemstar didn't go well. The comments and ratings were disabled on "Mob mentality" after mixed reception from the viewers, both defending and attacking him. Eventually the dislikes outnumbered the likes.

Aftermath

After the drama had ended, justdestiny stayed relatively inactive. He only made a community post every once in-a-while and uploaded 2 videos on his second channel "DestinySpeaks", his fanbase has also decreased to several thousands and his twitter account was privated. Another thing to note is that justdestiny's comment section on all of his videos have been disabled by YouTube, most likely due to the events of Adpocalypse 2.

Feud with Keemstar

During the interview with justdestiny, Keemstar of DramaAlert asked justdestiny if he touched children. This caused a huge amount of dislikes and negative reception to Keemstar which resulted in him losing 3,400 subscribers in 2 days. To try and get even with justdestiny, Keemstar got the help of Zoom (a known hacker, swatter and pedophile) and the NCO (a twitter group chat dedicated to helping small commentary channels grow without the influence of Keemstar). Keemstar's intentions of trying to dox JustDestiny to try and expose him were revealed in an RFC Afterhours livestream. A YouTuber named "Nicholas DeOrio" made a video titled "KEEMSTAR Hacked This YouTuber..." compiling the evidence and even revealed that Keemstar attempted to make a fake story about justdestiny being jailed for pedophilia. This caused CognitiveTalks to make a livestream to try and debunk the claims, this recieved negative reaction and the stream was a failure. After justdestiny made a video adressing the situation titled "THIS YOUTUBER TRIED TO HACK ME" and apologised to LtCobra, YouTubers who originally attacked justdestiny started to support him against Keemstar. So far, this has caused justdestiny to become more active and has made 2 new videos in the space of 2 weeks.
